- As the Alternative to Citrix, Ericom's PowerTerm(R) WebConnect empowers Camberley Auto Factors with lower costs, ease of use and a simpler and faster deployment of enterprise-wide secure remote access

Ericom(R) Software is pleased to announce that Camberley Auto Factors, a leading independent motor component distributor has selected PowerTerm(R) WebConnect Enterprise -- The Alternative to Citrix - to provide secure remote access for all its 28 branches to their head office- based Terminal server infrastructure.

Camberley Auto Factors, founded in 1964, is the largest independent distributor of motor components in the South of England. Through their network of 28 trading locations, they provide an express delivery service of top quality replacement parts to the motor trade in an area bounded by Bristol and Bournemouth in the west, and London and Brighton in the east.

In addition to their core business of supplying motor parts to the motor trade in Southern England, the company also operates a purpose-designed unit known as the Caftec Centre, fully-equipped to provide demonstration and training on all the very latest diagnostic equipment for the modern, high-tech car. Besides Caftec Centre, there are also specialist divisions serving the commercial vehicle market, the motor sport and performance component area, and the sporting goods wholesale market.
