Englewood, CO (Vocus) May 4, 2010
Verecloud, which equips communications service providers (CSPs) with a cloud services aggregation platform enabling them to capture more of the emerging cloud computing services market, today announced three strategic partnerships supporting NIMBUS Marketplace, its cloud services aggregator platform.
Verecloud is partnering with Idea2, which will provide a customer relationship management (CRM) SaaS application for small and medium-sized businesses that access the NIMBUS Marketplace service catalog through their CSPs. In addition, Verecloud is partnering with in-memory middleware services provider GigaSpaces Technologies and BSS/OSS supplier Comarch, both of which are delivering technology supporting NIMBUS Marketplace.
NIMBUS Marketplace, Verecloud’s cloud services aggregation platform, will enable CSPs to integrate, aggregate and mediate cloud services offered to small and medium-sized businesses without the need for costly and time-consuming upgrades to legacy systems. NIMBUS Marketplace enables CSPs to integrate with cloud service suppliers and then sell product bundles consisting of cloud services and existing communications products.
“As we develop NIMBUS Marketplace, we are looking to partner with cloud service suppliers that are demanded by small- and medium-sized businesses. We also are focused on partnering with companies that bring best-in-class technology for supporting our cloud services aggregator platform,” said John McCawley, president and CEO, Verecloud. “These partners provide the technology solutions CSPs need as they become providers of advanced cloud-based services to small and medium-sized business customers.”
Verecloud’s NIMBUS Marketplace cloud aggregator platform for CSPs is in the development stage and is expected launch in the fourth quarter of 2010.
Idea2 (http://www.idea2.com), a provider of cloud-based CRM for growing businesses, will supply its software as a service (SaaS) CRM solution as part of the cloud service supplier catalog Verecloud is creating for NIMBUS Marketplace. Idea2’s applications provide a customized interface for customer care, management and workflow. The company’s CRM solutions can be tailored for specific vertical markets that are strategically important to small- and medium sized businesses utilizing the NIMBUS Marketplace catalog.
