Broaden your offerings, increase revenue per user, and reduce support costs. Parallels Small Business Panel is the simplest, yet most powerful and profitable hosting control panel for service providers in the market today.

Features

Give Your Customers Control

Parallels Small Business Panel allows you to better service your customers by offering an easy-to-use control panel to manage their business IT needs.

End user customers (SMBs) will see the Marketplace in the control panel and can self serve hosted and desktop applications with a few clicks of the mouse.

Gain New Revenue Streams

Offer your customers add-on on applications like SpamAssassin, Helpdesk, Tomcat, ColdFusion and MSSQL for increased average revenue per user (ARPU). Pick and choose from hundreds of commercial business apps in the APS Catalog to offer to your end users or sell a "power plan" and offer your users access to the entire application library.
