EWISP is a web part that powers a highly customizable web interface; seamlessly connecting applications, desktops and content published on Citrix XenApp servers with users through SharePoint 2010. EWISP enables organizations to further leverage their SharePoint implementations by offering users a single convenient and secure access portal for all of their applications, offering a delivery environment which is easier to maintain and govern.
Only a few weeks before our implementation of SharePoint 2010, we realized that we needed a replacement for the Citrix remote access plugin for SharePoint. To our dismay we realized that Citrix no longer provided this functionality like they did for MOSS 2007. To our relief, we found that Extentrix filled the void. We contacted them and quickly arranged purchase of their solution for SharePoint. With only a week until our scheduled SharePoint 2010 go-live, we realized that the plugin wasn’t operating quite the way we needed it to. Panic set in, but Extentrix came to the rescue again with their outstanding technical support. Half a world away and about 9 hours’ time difference, they were on the ball with quick and comprehensive support of their product. They were more than accommodating, working with us around midnight their time, so that on our end we could work with them during our normal business hours. After a few rounds of conference calls/screen shares, they were able to resolve our issues; and since our launch, we’ve had zero issues with their SharePoint solution for Citrix. As we all know, a product may seem great on the surface, but poor support can change that opinion of a product. Extentrix’s support of their product was flawless and really allowed us to meet a tight deadline and implementation schedule. They say hind-sight is 20/20, and I don’t think we’d want to deal with any other vendor if we had to do it all over again. Thanks Extentrix!
