In 2010, Nitin Agarwal founded leading cloud services company Motifworks. Headquartered in Baltimore, MD. Motifworks helps Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies move applications and infrastructure to the cloud.
While working with the Microsoft Cloud team and Motifworks clients, Nitin and his team saw that on-premise non-SaaS Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) were at a disadvantage in an increasingly real-time, cloud-centric world. Many ISV’s found it difficult to quickly distribute self-service software trials, test software updates and train new users across geographies and platforms.
Helping ISV’s become more competitive with their cloud-ready competitors was the spark that inspired Nitin to found Trial.io.
The Trial.io team has developed a platform that allows ISV’s to seamlessly (and immediately) deliver software trials to prospects through Microsoft’s Azure cloud. While the platform was originally designed to assist with delivering software trials, it can also be used by companies to deliver training and manage distributed beta testing programs.
