San Francisco, CA (Vocus) May 28, 2009
GoGrid, a leading Cloud Computing Infrastructure hosting provider, and Acumatica, a provider of web-based financial and business management software, today announced a partnership to deliver a cloud-based accounting, ERP, CRM, and CMS solution to business customers.
GoGrid allows customers to quickly and easily deploy and control robust, cloud-based infrastructures on a self-service basis. GoGrid Cloud Servers can be instantly deployed and load-balanced using industry-based protocols and networking standards either through a web-based portal or programmatically through a REST-like API, allowing for incredible flexibility and ease-of-use, and completely on demand as defined by scalability requirements.
Using Acumatica on GoGrid, businesses can access an integrated suite of business software using any common web browser to streamline business tasks such as accounting, financial reporting, business reporting, customer management, customer invoicing, vendor payments, expense reporting, inventory management, and much more using a single integrated system.
Acumatica software is designed to be hosted on GoGrid's cloud computing infrastructure in order to deliver the following benefits:
"The partnership with GoGrid provides Acumatica customers with a reliable and cost effective way to deploy Acumatica," said Doug Johnson, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Acumatica. "Customers only pay for services they use and can quickly scale their deployment up or down."
"Acumatica offers a feature-rich alternative to traditional client-server ERP and CRM solutions," said Michael Sheehan, Technology Evangelist at GoGrid. "This partnership delivers value to customers by combining a modern software platform with a modern cloud hosting platform."
Businesses that want to deploy a hosted business management solution can purchase an Acumatica license from any Acumatica reseller and select the pre-configured service plan from the GoGrid website. Businesses who utilize the special discount code available from the Acumatica website before July 31, 2009, can take advantage of an Acumatica-GoGrid promotion to try the complete solution before purchasing a license.
