Office technology sales and service provider Midshire is increasing awareness of its Desktop Monster hosted desktop solution with vibrant new car graphics featuring the brand’s purple monster mascot Brian.
Group Marketing Manager Adrienne Topping said: “Brian has become a big character for the Desktop Monster brand, and wherever possible we want to promote the product and brand in a fun way. We take our mascot to all important events and people usually queue up to meet him and have a selfie. They love him! We’re over the moon with the new Desktop Monster car graphics and I’m sure there will be more vehicles to follow.”
Desktop Monster, which gives employees secure access to centralised business files from anywhere in the world, at any time and on any device, was named ‘Best Technology Product’ at the Talk of Manchester Awards in December 2016.
The solution was also instrumental in helping Midshire secure a contract with US Tax & Finance Ltd – the first international contract in the company’s 27-year history.
The financial advisor has offices in Geneva, Zurich and London and used to run two entirely separate infrastructures in London and Switzerland. This was expensive and made collaboration difficult.
Midshire proposed a two-stage solution, starting with IT support for all of US Tax offices, including 24-hour service desk, infrastructure support, disaster recovery and back-up. This will be followed by migration to the Desktop Monster hosted desktop solution.
