Our new business app store delivers essential cloud-based apps that will help our members become more efficient, productive and profitable.
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
SaaS Markets, a global leading business app store provider, today announced the launch of new app stores for the Florida Chamber of Commerce as well as over a dozen municipal chamber of commerce organizations. In the wake of being voted #5 in CIO Magazine’s ‘10 Hot Cloud Startups to Watch’ competition and recent enterprise app store deployments, SaaS Markets’ Q2, 2013 growth has soared.
The new app stores give chamber members centralized access to pre-qualified Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps that help them streamline business operations, reduce costs, boost productivity and meet other key business needs. From cloud-based accounting and finance software, to marketing automation and CRM apps, each store offers a robust selection of over 1,500 business apps.
The Florida Chamber of Commerce is one of the five largest chamber of commerce organizations in the U.S. Complementing the recent deployment of state-level chamber app stores, SaaS Markets has just deployed app stores for several high-profile municipal chambers as well. The Bellevue (WA) Chamber of Commerce is one of these organizations, and it counts Microsoft and Expedia in its member roster. Other chambers that are also launching app stores this month include the Lewis Clark Valley (ID) Chamber of Commerce; Anacortes (WA) Chamber of Commerce; and the Ogden-Weber (UT) Chamber of Commerce.
These new app store partnerships evolved from chamber leaders looking for new ways to bring value-added services to their members. Their decision to employ SaaS Markets’ MarketMaker app store platform was based on SaaS Markets’ extensive experience working with other chamber organizations, and its reputation for delivering the best SaaS apps to help small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) succeed.
"Our new business app store delivers essential cloud-based apps that will help our members become more efficient, productive and profitable,” stated Alan Holland, the Chief Financial Officer for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. “Successfully adopting new technology ensures the continued competitiveness and efficiency of our members, and we chose to work with SaaS Markets because of their expertise in this new and exciting market."
By deploying a web-based business app store with SaaS Markets, the chambers will give their members the ability to easily find the right software solutions for virtually any business challenge, and the added benefit of free software trials and tutorial content to help them navigate all that the cloud has to offer. All of the business apps found in the stores are all “cloud-based,” which makes them accessible via any Internet-enabled device, scalable and customizable to serve the individual needs of companies.
“We’re proud to add Florida, one of the largest chamber of commerce organizations, to our rapidly growing list of app store partners,” said Ferdi Roberts, Founder and CEO of SaaS Markets. “The latest group of chamber app stores is launching on our new MarketMaker 2.0 platform, ensuring that small to medium-sized business customers will have an easier time than ever finding the solutions they need for success.”
