San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
SaaS Markets, a global leading business app store provider, today announced its partnership with both the Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce in Washington and the Park City Chamber/Bureau in Utah involving the implementation and launch of an innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) app store. Starting now, business owners and entrepreneurs in the Auburn and Park City areas will have access to pre-qualified SaaS applications that help streamline business operations, reduce costs, boost productivity, and meet other key business needs.
SaaS Markets and the new app stores provide more than 1,300 trusted cloud-based applications specifically designed to meet the various business needs of local entrepreneurs. The app stores, which will be accessible through each of the chamber’s websites, provide valuable tools designed for chamber members to help them run their businesses and maximize success. By delivering these various applications in one place, members of both Auburn and Park City will save valuable time, money, and resources.
“Our tagline at the Auburn Area Chamber is ‘connecting people for success.’ So, anytime we find something that will help our members succeed in their businesses, we go for it,” said Nancy Wyatt, president and CEO, Auburn Area Chamber, Wash. “In addition, since we know our statewide chamber had already approved and moved forward with the SaaS Markets-powered store for its own members, we have a high degree of credibility to offer it to our members.”
Through SaaS Markets app stores, both the Auburn Area and Park City chambers look forward to connecting members with a wide variety of applications that will help them better manage time, sales projections, finances, etc., to encourage them to be more productive and successful in their businesses.
“Our priority is to provide our members with tools and services that will be beneficial to them and their businesses,” said Craig McCarthy, director of Member Services, Park City Chamber/Bureau, Utah. “With the new SaaS App Store powered by SaaS Markets, we are able to arm our members with an easy-to-use set of applications to manage their business operations more effectively.”
By developing a web-based business app store with SaaS Markets, both chambers will give their business members the ability to easily find the right tool for any job and the added benefit of “try-before-you-buy” free trials and educational materials. The app store’s robust business applications are all “cloud-based,” meaning they’re scalable, customizable and easily accessible to members in a variety of industries. These include, but are not limited to:
- Accounting and Finance
- Data Management
- Sales Security
- Website and Content Management
Navigating the new Chamber App Stores is quick, easy and affordable for chamber members, with most applications costing between $15 and $20 a month. Because of the low cost and commitment, business owners will be able to better manage their business operations, while eliminating the high capital expenses of purchasing and deploying hardware and software designed to improve their operational efficiency.
“The addition of these two chambers of commerce illustrates our value in addressing the needs of small businesses through our App Stores,” said Ferdi Roberts, founder and CEO of SaaS Markets. “We take pride in helping other businesses succeed without taking on the burden of major investments and time spent managing technology, and we look forward to more high-value partnerships like we have with the Auburn Area Chamber and Park City Chamber/Bureau.”
