Since 01 April 2012, Prianto has completely taken over the SINN GmbH Reithofen.
SINN GmbH has been successfully active in the market for network-based software solutions for 15 years. The name SINN stands for "Software INNovations" and underlines the positioning on the market. The company is focused on printing and scanning solutions for Tricerat Terminal Server infrastructures, the RemotelyAnywhere solutions from LogMeIn for remote control of PCs and Macs as well as Propalms. SINN GmbH has deep product-know-how that pays off for their partners. Practical add-ons to the vendors´ products are also developed, which are made available to the partners free of charge.
Within the Prianto GmbH, a business unit SINN was set up, which takes care of these subject areas and is supplemented by other vendors and solutions, such as the client-based VDI Solutions from Virtual Computer. The former Managing Director of SINN GmbH, Mr. Georg Maurer, managed as a Director the division of a Business Unit Sinn. SINN GmbH has a completely complementary business model and, like Prianto GmbH, is a distributor specialized in enterprise software solutions.
