Leading Japanese Multi-National Corporation Replaces PCs, Enables Global Offices and Mobile Workers With Wyse Cloud Client Computing

SAN JOSE, CA and TOKYO--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, today announced a company-wide implementation of its products into Axio Corporation (Tokyo, Minato-ku, President Kazuhiko Enishi, hereinafter referred to as 'Axio') by replacing Axio's legacy business PCs with Wyse thin clients, as well as a continued expansion of the desktop virtualization environment with smartphones and tablets.

Founded in 1991, Axio is the pioneer of system solution providers for Business IT solutions, designing and proposing information systems with the newest and the most suitable products for organizations such as construction, education, management and maintenance. They are proud to boast numerous achievements centered around network solutions including, identity management and security network construction, among others. In 2010, Axio achieved sales close to 4 million yen and now has 212 employees.

In 2006, Axio carried out a complete in-house Wyse thin client implementation and since then, has also provided Wyse solutions to many businesses and public organizations. Notably, at the time of the implementation, over 200 Wyse thin clients were installed by only one IT department supervisor. Axio now utilizes multiple solutions from its cloud client computing portfolio, including the Wyse ThinOS thin clients and the Wyse mobile thin clients running Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard.

Axio is also currently making efforts company-wide to utilize mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Since the latter half of 2010, all 140 mobile phones provided to employees were replaced by iPhones and 10 iPads. They are also testing Android options. Virtual desktop access from an iPhone and iPad is also being realized through use of the Wyse remote desktop application, 'Wyse PocketCloud.' Wyse PocketCloud has excellent operability including multifunctional keyboards corresponding to the touch pointer that makes it easy to right click, drag and drop as well as input shortcuts, and has also proven useful for employees to check Excel files located on the server from remote locations.

Beginning with Wyse's start-up in Japan, Axio has been both a proactive user and a solution provider of Wyse devices. Axio has capitalized on their accumulated know-how as Wyse users by implementing these solutions that benefit server environment construction, an infrastructure mixed model system that balances performance and cost, the reduction targets for TCO and less IT downtime. We are thrilled to have Axio as a customer and partner and I look forward to our future implementations.
- Tarkan Maner, President & CEO, Wyse Technology
