Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 27, 2008
Amicus, Inc., an industry pioneer and leader in hosted software as a service (SaaS) solutions for the financial services industry, and Efficient Technology, Inc., the industry leader in automated forms technology, today announced their collaboration partnership. Amicus and Efficient Technology will work together to offer Quik!® Forms Enterprise as a fully hosted solution for the financial services market.
The Quik! Enterprise products lead the industry in helping firms automate their forms-related processes, from connecting to client data sources, pre-filling industry forms, to digitally signing and archiving the forms, to submitting forms to the back-office for straight-through-processing. "By partnering with Amicus to provide a hosted solution for Quik! Enterprise, we will be able to reach many firms that otherwise do not have or want the IT infrastructure necessary to go it alone," said Jeff Reece, Vice President, Product Relations for Efficient Technology.
"As firms continue to evaluate what is and is not a unique differentiator for them, more often than not IT services are being outsourced and moved into the cloud," said Marshall Huwe, President & CEO of Amicus. "That is what Amicus does best. It just makes perfect sense for Amicus to integrate the Quik! products into our hosting platform."
Amicus expects to roll out the first "powered by Quik!" solution in early April - a fully hosted new account platform, with additional services coming throughout the year.
