New York, NY (PRWEB) December 3, 2009 –-
Channeltivity, the leader in Channel Development and Partner Relationship Management (PRM) solutions for Emerging Technology Vendors and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s), today announced that Jason D. Jacobs has joined the company as Chief Executive Officer.
Jacobs brings more than 20 years of software industry experience to Channeltivity. He has a proven track record of driving explosive growth and innovation in early stage technology companies. In his last company, a leader in SaaS Multi-Channel Retail Software, he attained 55% compound annual growth for five years running.
SaaS (Software as a Service) evolved out of the dotcom era as a new means of delivering software applications to users over the internet. SaaS creates economies of scale by centralizing the computing, data storage, security and system administration of applications while increasing reliability. As a result, small and midsized businesses now have affordable access to the same business applications as their larger competitors.
Co-founder Bill Brandt said, "We are excited to have Jason join the Channeltivity team as he understands the needs of today's leading IT vendors, distributors and resellers. Jacobs brings a unique perspective around providing a suite of SaaS offerings to help our clients drive increased revenue and stronger relationships with their channel partners.
Channeltivity will leverage Mr. Jacobs' depth of experience gained as a pioneer of SaaS applications. The company will also use his track record of successfully building high growth businesses to accelerate their global growth into the emerging technology vendor market.
“I am extremely excited to join Channeltivity and build on their success”, said Jason Jacobs, CEO of Channeltivity. He continued, “We are well positioned as the solution of choice for emerging vendors of IT, telecom and software seeking to grow their indirect sales channel and maximize their performance, globally.”
