SingleHop Announces New LEAP widget - Dedicated Server control without the need of a browser.

Chicago, IL: August 17, 2009: Managed dedicated and complex hosting provider, SingleHop, today released a new addition to it's LEAP Total Server Control system, the LEAP widget. A comprehensive cross-platform application that allows instant server management without the need of a web-browser, and straight from the customers desktop. LEAP widget is part of the LEAP platform which includes mobile (iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Pre and other supported devices,) and web-based desktop (web-top) access.

The application provides tremendous control in managing dedicated servers with functions (which normally require logging into LEAP) such as: submitting tickets, reviewing and updating support tickets, checking the status of the network, reviewing bandwidth usage, remote rebooting servers, viewing bandwidth overages, and more just by opening your LEAP widget from the desktop. The LEAP widget currently supports Windows Vista and Apple OS X natively, as well as various types of Linux and Unix-based operating systems that support Adobe AIR. LEAP widget is the first tool within the hosting industry that allows for quick and easy server management on your desktop, and entirely independent of a web browser.

"Widgets are mini-applications that sit on your desktop ready to get stuff done on a moment's notice. We could not think of a more appropriate way to allow our clients to quickly reboot their servers," said Andy Pace, VP of Operations for SingleHop.

"SingleHop has been on an innovative streak of putting more control in the hands of our client's", said Zak Boca, CEO and President of SingleHop. "Over the course of this year we have built and released LEAPmobile which provides server control on mobile devices, Server Bailout System that allows clients to rescue their server from hardware or severe errors, and now LEAPwidget that will empower all our customers with quick and accessible server control from their desktop of choice. All of our new products share one common vision which is to enable our clients to do more, faster, with less clicks and less headaches", Boca mentioned.
