Esri recently launched a thin client multiuser environment for ArcLogistics Route, our desktop routing and scheduling solution. By including Citrix MetaFrame software from Citrix Systems, Inc., with ArcLogistics Route, Esri has enabled multiple users in a given organization to use the same work group license.

ArcLogistics Route is a fully interactive software application that helps Businesses and organizations deliver goods or services more efficiently, reducing costs and improving customer service. ArcLogistics Route for Workgroups can be licensed directly by fleet operators in a self-hosted environment. In addition, a lower cost of entry service option is available where software and hardware are externally hosted at a secure data center with low upfront investment and a monthly service fee. Both options are financially attractive for organizations with five to 5,000 operating/dispatch centers.

"Larger organizations understand the value of distributed software applications since floating seat licenses help to greatly shorten the return on investment payback period," says Karl Terrey, ArcLogistics Route product manager, Esri. "ArcLogistics Route for Workgroups with Citrix MetaFrame allows our customers to license just a portion of the software typically required with single user desktop technology."

Benefits of a Citrix server-based computing deployment include centralizing of software applications on a server, which results in lower implementation costs, and efficient, single-point administration of the complete solution.
