The company was founded to help colleges and universities to improve students' experience of using latest technology.
Software2 was founded in 2009 with the simple goal of helping universities, colleges and organizations improve the student experience using the latest technologies.
To this day, the company’s focus and mission is largely unchanged, albeit with some even cooler technologies! Since the launch of AppsAnywhere, Software2 has been focused on enabling organizations to improve how they deliver software by bringing together a wide variety of industry-leading deployment tools, to enable the access of 100% of applications from a single app-store-like portal on every device.
The delivery of applications and desktops is a key part of ‘end user computing’ (EUC), something that AppsAnywhere’s on-demand software delivery model is there to improve. Whether you’re delivering Windows apps to Windows, Windows apps to non-Windows (including Chromebooks!), Mac apps to Mac devices, iOS and Android apps to mobile devices, AppsAnywhere brings all your university-approved software titles together for a ‘single pane of glass’-type experience.
Students expect technology, and software in particular, to ‘just work’, wherever and whenever they need it to. One of the many problems affecting universities that Software2 discovered in those early days was not being able to deploy all Windows apps with a single solution, to any device.
There was an inherent need to nurture existing IT infrastructure to ensure that the student experience is not merely unchanged, but improved, and all delivered in a way that is both cost-effective and efficient.
