Creating an enterprise app store with Flexera Software App Portal addresses the business need for rapid software distribution and the user’s expectations of a consumer-like experience for accessing IT services in the workplace. The benefits in terms of higher end-user productivity and improved customer satisfaction are compelling, but the benefits don’t end there.
