Back in May, SHADOW announced Shadow Business Solutions, a range of cloud-based services building upon the company's technological expertise and designed specifically for professionals and companies. Shadow Business Solutions is composed of innovative and flexible professional cloud-based services that will get enriched over time. And the time for an update has come!

All configurations are equipped with a Professional Windows License, a dedicated GPU, SSD storage and an additional HDD storage that can be increased in size.
Overall, Shadow Business Solutions can address dozens of different B2B usage, from creatives to game developers, teachers to architects. You can discover some of them by checking our Client Testimonial video including Bandai Namco Europe, SNCF or PCA-STREAM:

Shadow is also proud to unveil today one tool that will be pivotal to our professional offers: the Shadow Business Manager. Our Shadow Business Manager will allow any IT service or manager within your company to create, modify and suppress Shadow PCs. The first version of our Shadow Business Manager will be available to business customers on December 5.
In early 2023, SHADOW will unveil updated versions of the tool that will allow rights management, configuration duplication, group management, collaborative work on a single Shadow PC, backup management, and more.
SHADOW helps improve the carbon footprint of companies by extending the lifetime of their devices thanks to our Shadow PC, therefore reducing obsolescence and waste.
“Since we announced Shadow Business Solutions last May, our B2B teams have already gathered nearly 2 000 leads. We are proud to have already dozens of B2B customers working with us from various sizes and sectors. And there is much more to be announced in the coming months. 2023 will be super exciting for the future of our Shadow Business Solutions and our customers!”, said Éric Sèle, CEO at Shadow.
