9 September 2017


British start-up Administrate has struck a deal with cloud-based software solutions provider CloudShare. Administrate, which has headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom, was established in 2012. The Administrate solution manages training and learning, and streamlines functions like course scheduling, resource management, CRM, reporting, marketing, and eLearning. The company has some major customers, including the University of York – a leading British educational institution, and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). The deal with CloudShare will potentially bring in millions of pounds in revenue for Administrate.

CloudShare, which has headquarters in San Francisco, California, United States, was established in 2007. The company specialises in solutions that offer “cloud-replication of any on-premises IT system or application in less than a minute”. It delivers pre-production environments and infrastructure that simplify “development, testing, training and sales enablement”. The company’s impressive list of customers include Microsoft, HP IBM, SAP, and Dell. Through its arrangement with CloudShare, Administrate will be able to offer its solutions to a larger number of potential customers through “deep integration between Administrate and CloudShare”.

“I’m happy to announce today that Administrate has teamed up with CloudShare, the industry leading solution for virtual lab environments,” explained John Peebles, the CEO of Administrate on the company’s website. “Years ago, as a computer science lab Training Assistant, I personally suffered the pain that CloudShare solves for hundreds of clients around the world: how do you easily manage high quality technical lab environments? Their cloud solution is robust, scalable, and most importantly ensures a perfectly configured technical environment that’s ready to support the learning of students from anywhere, on demand.”
