Entrigue Launches Partner Program

Entrigue Systems, a Dunwoody, Ga.-based provider of Windows desktop user profile management software sold under the Script Start brand, launched a formal partner program on Monday.

Called the Entrigue Authorized Solution Ecosystem (EASE), the program offers discount margins ranging from 20 percent to 30 percent for U.S. partners in a three-tier program. To qualify for the top-tier margin of 30 percent, a reseller will need to sell at least 15 server licenses per quarter.

Internationally, the company is in the process of signing value added distributors to exclusive deals for countries in Europe. Those partners will receive higher margins, but also take on more costs, such as localizing software and translating materials.

“The nature of our solutions makes them a great fit for integrators and IT management companies that provide outsourced IT services as well as resellers that specialize in IT management,” Kimberly Overcash, Entrigue channel manager, said in a statement.

Script Start allows administrators to use graphical logon scripting on Windows, Linux and other servers to manage Windows desktops, including Citrix XenDesktop and VMware VDI virtual machines.

Using Script Start, administrators can map drives, install printers, configure Outlook profiles, adjust Internet proxy settings and configure RDP connections, among other tasks.

The product features zero footprint on desktops, automatic publishing of applications via Remote Desktop Protocol and per-Domain Controller as opposed to per-seat licensing. The software costs $990 per domain server.

Meanwhile, the company is working on a subscription-based offering for systems integrators looking for a solution to help them manage desktops on behalf of small business clients, according to Jason Smith, vice president of business development for Entrigue.
