About Us

Meet the Numecent Team

Founded by a world-class team of inventors, serving millions around the world.

Our goal from day one has been to simplify the mobilization and management of Windows applications across modern desktop and multi-cloud environments.

With experience across all 25+ years of Windows operating systems, we developed Cloudpaging to ensure IT can easily package and deliver even the most complex applications to hundreds of thousands of end-users in a friction-free manner.

With the launch of Cloudpager® – the first and only container management platform for Windows desktops – its easier than ever for enterprises to manage their entire application estate across physical and virtual desktop environments from a single, cloud-native solution.

Today we’re proud to say we have authored 64 patents (and counting) and actively serve millions of end users around the world, including the largest Fortune 100 companies, cloud service providers, and more.
