Helsinki / Haarlem (PRWEB) April 18, 2006
Finnish software development company Smilehouse and leading Dutch managed services provider PINS Internet have signed a partnership aimed at the joint offering of e-commerce solutions to customers in The Netherlands and Belgium.
PINS will utilize Smilehouse technologies to offer new e-commerce services to its customers, in both the B2B and B2C segments. The services will be especially interesting for companies that are performing a significant amount of online transactions or that are planning to do so in the future. PINS offers these companies powerful and cost effective end-to-end solutions based on the Workspace software of Smilehouse.
On the front end, these solutions provide exceptional security and speed, based on an infrastructure that can be scaled easily to meet seasonal demand and growth in sales volume. Also, Workspace can be integrated seamlessly with customer’s back office applications, such as SAP Business One, Exact Globe 2003 and Navision.
Says Vincent Steenhuis, Sales Director for PINS: “More and more small and medium sized organizations in the Benelux are looking at integrating e-commerce solutions within their existing infrastructure. Still, companies in this segment would like to avoid large investments in software, hardware, installation, maintenance and support. Hosted e-commerce solutions provide a solution here. PINS and Smilehouse have put together a complete offering, that is hosted with and maintained by PINS. This way, small and medium sized companies can benefit from integrated e-commerce whilst securing high availability against relatively low costs.”
“IT solutions and especially professional e-commerce solutions are becoming more and more complex”, says Jaakko Hallavo, director for Smilehouse. “For most companies, keeping up with the latest technological developments is crucial. At the same time, costs need to be kept low. By offering a hosted solution, these organizations have access to the latest technologies, without having to worry about maintenance and availability of these mission critical applications.”
According to Jaakko Hallavo the partnership between Smilehouse and PINS illustrates the importance of a good partner network. “We work together with various partners, throughout Europe, that are marketing our solutions as part of a complete hosted service. PINS is an organization that clearly distinguishes itself by its extensive experience in the ICT industry and its broad knowledge of Hosted Services.”
