AppSphere turns to asknet for online shop

ScriptRunner IT management software licenses can now be bought and downloaded online

Karlsruhe, January 16, 2015 – AppSphere, a system and software provider based in Ettlingen, Germany, is now using an online shop designed and operated by asknet to market its ScriptRunner software solution. This makes it even easier for potential customers from Germany and around the world to buy and use the well-known tool.

AppSphere AG expanded the sales channels for ScriptRunner, its flagship product, at the start of the year to offer its customers more options. Thanks to asknet AG’s many years of experience in the field, users can buy the administration software from the company’s own online shop as well as from authorized partners or the AppStore for the first time ever.

“ScriptRunner is a versatile tool with an intuitive dashboard and modern responsive design. It combines practical administrative and management functions with the ability to run PowerShell and VBScript both locally and remotely,” AppSphere Product Marketing Manager Marvin Klaassen says. Potential customers can visit the product homepage to find out more about these functions and download a free test version. And now they can even purchase a license in the AppSphere shop once they are finished browsing.

“We are proud to have AppSphere on board. They are joining a long list of high-profile companies that are our customers,” Tobias Kaulfuss, CEO of asknet AG, says. “We are happy to support companies in taking advantage of the wide range of possibilities that online business offers. After all, the number of products sold online is constantly rising worldwide, and this sales channel just makes sense for a product such as this software.”

AppSphere is set to start reaping the benefits of its new online shop right away. One main reason for this is the scheduled release of a ScriptRunner team edition in the near future. The new product will enable system administrators to delegate their scripts within their networks for the first time ever, allowing them to directly allocate proven test or update scripts.
