About IMSCAD


Our key business activity is the delivery and support of NVIDIA GRID GPU’s and graphical applications virtualized on the Citrix, VMware and Microsoft platforms. We have deployed 100’s of solutions globally already.

IMSCAD has been operating for over 7 years from their London based HQ in The Shard. We have over 45+ staff currently that can work with you. We also have been at the forefront of the development of many GPU based Applications. We focus on providing support for this technology directly to NVIDIA GRID Channel partners, CSP’s and MSP’s globally. While our key focus is the virtualization of graphical software our scope soon expanded to advising on General IT infrastructure to support this. Many more customers require GPU’s for everyday Applications such as Windows 10. We believe we can help you and your customers deliver this technology successfully in partnership together. This helps you get up to speed faster and you start making money quicker.

The services we supply range from ‘POC in a Week,’ Consulting, Installation, User Support, Troubleshooting, Development through to Compatibility for add-in Applications.

Our team’s experience and knowledge of deploying and supporting 3D Design, CAD and graphically intensive users in virtual environments is second to none.

We have the experience of virtual environments and a clear understanding of the Applications within it, coupled with NVIDIA GRID, Hardware and Software sizing, we can offer that end to end knowledge.

POC in a Week’ powered IMSCAD


IMSCAD have a Cloud based NVIDIA GRID platform on both Citrix and VMware that can be used by any CSP, MSP and Channel Partner to run a POC (Proof of Concept).

We have servers in the UK and US that deliver excellent performance to ensure your customers get a great POC experience.

We have access to many ISV’s software and we allow your customer to upload their own design data to test the solution with real users for a few days. The purpose is to prove the technology can deliver what they want and to open a larger opportunity for you to sell more hardware and software to them. The process would then move in to a more prolonged Pilot phase which we can either support you with or you can run yourself.


We charge for the ‘POC in a week’, based on up to 5 Apps and 5 Users, all admin and support included. You can charge your customer whatever you want. We will then hand back the customers to you as a confirmed lead. We can also offer you more bespoke POC’s for those customers that want more users and Apps for a longer period. This will be priced on a case by case basis. This a production ready environment that will give your customer a real experience of the power of the solution in the Cloud. We will be happy to share the infrastructure it is run on and happy to help you realise the opportunity after the POC is run. We can take the stress out of understanding all the workfl ows, Applications and Infrastructure required to deliver success to a POC.

A further option is to engage us to build your POC system for you. We can document and deliver it to a production standard. If you’re a CSP you may want to consider us to build it in your environment and run it for you as customers require it. Saving you time and money in enabling your staff to learn the technology and how to deploy it.

No more shipping of demo NVIDIA GRID units or Try and Buy servers, run the whole POC with IMSCAD.

END to END Deployment Service

This is designed for Partners that just want to have a stress free life. IMSCAD will provide the ‘POC in a Week’, agreeing the way forward with your customer, providing you with the specification of Hardware and Software to purchase or provision. We will project manage the deployment into production then hand it over to you with a 2nd/3rd line support option.

You will get all Hardware and Software opportunities to sell to your customer but we just handle the services around it.

As a CSP or MSP you gain from us deploying it in your environment and you pick up the ongoing contract, again without all the intricacies of getting the performance right from the start. In this case we would recommend an overarching support contract to cover all your customer deployments.

Each End to End Deployment would need to be on a case by case basis, based on requirements and Application mix. We will normal spend a couple of Consulting days at the start to plan the project and projected costs.
