Amherst, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 1, 2004
SofTrek Corporation, a 17 year old computer software company based in Amherst, NY, has launched a new service that will provide hosting of custom Oracle database applications for small to mid-size organizations. Marketed under the appitat name, the service will provide both infrastructure and staff to support Oracle enterprise software applications out of the companyÂs state of the art datacenter. Providing a superior habitat for Oracle applications, the new service will leverage SofTrekÂs seven years of experience in developing, managing and hosting of Oracle based systems. This will allow companies investigating an outsource approach to system management to utilize a local or US based company instead of an overseas vendor.
ÂOutsourcing of software and systems is not exactly a new conceptÂ, stated David Spacone, founder and president of SofTrek Corporation. SofTrek originally started managing and hosting systems seven years ago by providing that service for their award winning software, PledgeMakerÂ. PledgeMakerÂ is a software package specifically for non-profits and is at use at many of the largest organizations in North America. ÂBasically, our clients were being asked to do more with lessÂ, Spacone remembers. ÂOur hosting model allowed them to redirect their technology staff to tackle more important tasks that directly impacted their bottom line Â.
SofTrek currently has 350 clients of which the company hosts 100 at its facility in Amherst. The appitat service, although a new launch, has been well received in the marketplace and has already contracted with a large mail production and printing firm located in Lincoln, Nebraska, to provide an environment for their Oracle applications. Added Spacone, ÂWe not only create new jobs in Western New York, but we bring dollars that would have been spent in other statesÂ. While the focus of the outsourcing trend has been on utilizing overseas providers, the appitat service will lead to promising trends for the Western New York economy by adding jobs that would have been shipped overseas.
