ControlUp helps resolve desktop issues by offering a Digital Employee Experience (DEX) Management Fabric for challenges faced by IT teams, such as troubleshooting complex workspaces, support tickets, and flat budgets. Organizations can reduce time spent troubleshooting with data and reporting, identify problems while automating solutions before tickets are submitted, and consolidate tools into a single web app.
“The partnership between Jed’s go-to-market leadership and Asaf’s product vision in the Digital Employee Experience category will allow us to grow ControlUp in a very significant way in the international market and position it as a category leader in the emerging exciting space of DEX," added ControlUp Board Director, and Founder and Chairman of JVP, Erel Margalit.
