New York, New York – (The Hosting News) – July 21, 2006 – Managed hosting provider and network services company, Globix, has joined software funding firm, smartfundit.com, to provide independent software vendors (ISV) with the ability to offer an end-to-end software delivery service.
Globix will provide the managed hosting service, while smartfundit.com provides on-demand finance options through its finance web platform. The finance web can be accessed from any device, from any location and through any web browser. It has been developed to help software companies browse, source and integrate funding on demand as part of their product offering.
Christian Eckley, Sales and Marketing Director at Globix UK commented, ”I believe we have developed a unique sales solution that will give software vendors a major competitive advantage. From a secure single platform, customers will be able to make their software selection and arrange finance to purchase the software as a service in one straightforward process. The whole point of Software as a Service is that it is just that – it provides a service.”
Justin Floyd, Chairman of smartfundit.com added, ”The partnership between Globix and smartfundit.com has created the ultimate sales support service for ISVs and their customers. It allows an ISV’s customer to better manage the cost of software procurement by providing access to industry’s leading software financiers in one easy-to-use platform. By removing the barriers that software companies have traditionally faced when incorporating finance as part of a customer deal, together Globix and smartfundit.com are proving a truly attractive hosting and finance on-demand solution for SaaS. Now, independent finance decisions for software procurement are literally three clicks and less than two minutes away.”
