About desktopsites


 

desktopsites is a leading developer of innovative and cost effective Windows® desktop virtualization solutions for small and mid-size businesses ("SMBs"). desktopsites' Konect Elite expands on Microsoft's user-centric vision by providing a complete application and desktop management and delivery solution that bridges the gap between Microsoft Free Tools and Large Enterprise Solutions.

 

While many software vendors have found success in serving large enterprises, many are struggling to understand how best to serve SMBs. SMBs are key to the success of the North American economy. More than 99% of all employer firms are SMBs with less than 1000 employees, and they employ more than 54% of all employees. SMBs often do not have access to the resources and capital of large enterprises yet they face the same competitive pressures driving technology adoption and go-to-market innovation. Regardless of the size of your organization, the competitive demands of a global economy are very real. Being an SMB shouldn't preclude your business from having the tools it needs to be successful.
