The experience gained in hosting both large multi-national customers as well as smaller UK based SYSPRO sites made K3 the logical partner for SYSPRO’s SaaS offering.
K3 Managed Services also provides a wide range of infrastructure services from network design and hardware support through to business continuity and remote systems management services. K3 Managed Services also hosts a wide range of applications from Microsoft including CRM, Office and e-mail. Customers include Doncasters Group and Dudsons.
Martin Perry, Managing Director of K3 Managed Services Ltd, said: "This is a landmark agreement for K3 and reflects the technical strength of our hosting service for SYSPRO products. Uptake of SYSPRO BusinessLive is expected to gain greater momentum as the attractions of Cloud Computing grow. With some 14,000 SYSPRO customers worldwide watching the development of hosted solutions with interest the agreement represents an exciting opportunity to accelerate the growth of our managed services business."
Phil Duff, Chief Executive of SYSPRO said: "K3 has enjoyed considerable success in the deployment of SYSPRO in a hosted environment, supporting customers across the UK, Europe and the USA. We are delighted to have reached this agreement with K3 making SYSPRO available as a hosted SaaS solution on a worldwide basis."
