The advantage of multi-tenant SaaS application architectures during sales cycle is to easily setup a production environment for customers before they purchase the solution
Bedford, MA (Vocus) March 12, 2010
InteQ, a leading provider of on demand IT service management , is revolutionalizing the sandbox experience for IT organizations evaluating InfraDesk ITIL SaaS Service Desk by offering prospective clients with the unique opportunity to use InfraDesk in a production environment. The InteQ SaaS Assurance Program eliminates risks associated with implementing a service desk application by allowing the IT organization to use a dedicated instance of InfraDesk with their workflows and data with no commitment. In addition, the program enables the enterprise to gain a true reflection of the value and true benefits of InfraDesk.
“All vendors provide sandboxes to prospective customers at some stage in the sales cycle but we recognized that although the sandbox enables the user to get a feel for how the application performs, they really have no assurances of how it will actually perform for their organization, with their data and their workflows,” Bradford Winkler, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, SaaS Solutions, InteQ. “The InteQ SaaS Assurance Program really takes the sandbox to a more customized and personalized experience and provides the IT organization with the opportunity to show value to the business by demonstrating the application working in their own environment.”
The InteQ SaaS Assurance Program provides IT organizations with the ability to eliminate implementation risks, validate tool capabilities and demonstrate value to the business by implementing InfraDesk SaaS ITIL Service Desk within the enterprise. Using a staging or live production instance, InteQ will use active data, including workflows from the client’s environment, to show a true depiction of how the service desk application will work on a day-to-day basis. The first of its kind to be offered by a service desk application provider, this program truly takes the sandbox experience to the next level.
InfraDesk is a SaaS based ITIL service desk solution that enables enterprise IT organizations with the ability to adopt a robust solution with built-in ITIL workflows at a fraction of the cost of an on-premise application. Action-based automated routing ensures complete accuracy throughout the lifecycle of the service request to the resolution. Easy configuration accelerates adoption and training across the enterprise and dramatically reduces the need for in-house resources devoted to programming and administering the application.
“The advantage of multi-tenant SaaS application architectures during sales cycle is to easily setup a production environment for customers before they purchase the solution,” said Ray Paquet, Managing Vice President, Gartner. “IT Service Management SaaS vendors who provide assurances and eliminate perceived risks associated with switching and implementing such solutions is a huge benefit to prospective customers.”
