Allen, TX (Vocus) November 10, 2010
SimCrest, Inc., dedicated to helping small and mid-sized companies automate business processes with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, has partnered with SaaSplaza, an open Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform and a global operating Microsoft S+S Incubation Center, to offer Cloud-based hosting service to Small and Mid-sized Businesses (SMBs). Businesses are able to remotely access fully-functional Microsoft Dynamics NAV at a monthly subscription price via SaaSplaza’s SaaS platform.
SaaSplaza is the largest multi-vendor portfolio of S+S solutions, including a wide range of Microsoft products and licenses. SaaSplaza brings together software suppliers and implementation partners for the transparent supply of Software-as-a-Service.
Olivier Meynier, SaaSplaza US Director, said “Under our partnership, SimCrest is able to deliver their Dynamics NAV solutions on the SaaS model and broaden their reach by competing in the growing Cloud ERP market.”
SimCrest expects to serve the needs of start-ups and SMBs; helping them get the most out of Microsoft Dynamics NAV in a restricted capital spending situation.
“We are delighted to be working with SaaSplaza. We have seen a lot of shifting in the business community to be able to have on-demand software that is not dependent on their internal network. Essentially, companies can have their software hosted externally and be able to access it from their office, home, or anywhere out on the road, having real time data.” said John Stevens, Vice President of SimCrest.
Stevens indicates that compared to an on-promise application, the pay-as-you-go model of an on-demand application can significantly reduce the upfront investment and help to break the cost barrier for start-ups and SMBs. Stevens added, “In addition to lowered cost of ownership, there are many other benefits Software-as-a-Service can bring to businesses, such as global accessibility, improved data security and reduced IT expenditure.”
“This is going to be great for our clients to give them the option to have Cloud-based computing for a robust ERP system such as Dynamics NAV.” says Stevens. “Our new offering gives them the flexibility to decide which option is a better fit for their specific needs.”
