Share Article

OpSource™, the leader in Web operations, today announced that eXpresso™ Corporation, provider of online collaboration services for business, has chosen OpSource On-Demand™ for scalable Web delivery of its secure, award-winning solution. eXpresso enables users to share and collaborate on any Microsoft® Excel® file, regardless of location, which assists in the trend toward managed online business communities.

eXpresso provides a complete and immediately usable Excel collaboration tool that requires no installation, support or training. However, with no in-house IT resources, eXpresso required a hosting solution that provided the technical aspects of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, while also providing complete scalability to address the needs of its rapidly growing customer base. The company selected OpSource On-Demand because of its ability to manage its infrastructure while keeping pace with the volume of eXpresso users and their concurrent sessions.

George Langan, CEO of eXpresso, said, "In theory, the volume of eXpresso users can grow exponentially at any given moment, so we need an infrastructure that is dynamic, scalable and can stay ahead of our overall growth. We put OpSource On-Demand through a three-month pilot, during which time they not only provided us with the infrastructure and scalability we needed, but also demonstrated both a personal touch and an in-depth understanding of our needs and applications. We're now also evaluating OpSource Analytics to dissect data in a way that should enhance how it can be used by our sales team."

Treb Ryan, CEO of OpSource, said, "SaaS has been readily adopted by consumers and is now going mainstream for the enterprise. This is opening up new markets for SaaS providers such as eXpresso who are adding value including collaboration and file sharing to ubiquitous enterprise-wide applications like Excel. SaaS success in the enterprise requires reliability, scalability and security and we're honored to have earned eXpresso's trust as its Web operations partner."
