Honolulu, Hawaii – (The Hosting News) – July 7, 2008 – Web hosting software as a service (SaaS) firm, PHASE 2 International, has reported that it has substantially exceeded sales revenue and profit goals for the first half of 2008, due to the success of deployments in major vertical markets.
A recent e-Biz Award by Technology News Bytes as ‘Software of the Year’ for its ShareCAD Pro and the launch of its SharePartner Reseller Partner Program, has expanded company development and support staffs, while enlarging its data center and adding sales presence.
PHASE 2 recently completed its move to a new, larger corporate headquarters in Honolulu and opened its first mainland U.S. office in Chicago.
Kevin Doherty, CEO of PHASE 2 noted, ”Software as a service is getting a great reception and PHASE 2 is responding by enlarging our development team, beefing up our data centers and developing and testing new applications. We continue to expand our revenue base and our venture capital relationships so that we can continue our accelerated growth as a premier provider of SaaS, worldwide.”
The company’s newest sales base in Chicago, IL opened its doors in June, led by Regional Sales Manager Donald Stroud. Mr. Stroud joined PHASE 2 this summer with the express task of expanding the mainland presence and sales across the U.S. >
Mr. Stroud explained, ”Having been a business technology solutions consultant since 2003, I have a pretty good idea what today’s businesses are looking for. It’s very exciting, to say the least, to work for an innovative company like PHASE 2 that provides affordable options for business software real solutions for real businesses.”
PHASE 2’s SaaS portfolio includes its ShareCAD Pro, a centralized platform based on Microsoft SharePoint for contractors, architects and manufacturers and a suite of other hosted applications that it provides to customers on a ‘pay as you go’ basis. Offering use of Microsoft’s SharePoint, Exchange, Project Server, CRM and Office Communicator as well as PHASE 2’s own ShareMeeting and award-winning ShareCAD Pro, the low total cost of ownership incorporated in PHASE 2’s SaaS model allows customers to benefit from a broader range of products than they could otherwise consider.
PHASE 2’s SharePartner program lets resellers provide the company’s ‘pay as you go’ application access to customers for whom outright purchase and in-house hosting may not otherwise be economically feasible or practical.
