Server-service Company Now Delivers Broadest Selection of Hosted Business Applications

October 16, 2007, Honolulu, HI - PHASE 2 International™, a worldwide provider of reliable hosted applications, announced today the launch of its first series of customized and integrated hosted business applications. The initial selection of commonly used software is geared in price and functionality towards the needs of small-to medium-sized businesses (SMB). The new offerings, whether stand-alone or integrated, include Microsoft SharePoint®, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Dynamics™ CRM, Microsoft Project, and Microsoft Live Communicator. The company also hosts ShareCAD for AutoCAD® a sharing network for AutoCAD documents.

Software-as-a-Service, or SaaS, offers subscription-based access to applications. PHASE 2 clients do not require upfront software license and hardware installation costs, nor IT staff to implement and maintain network systems. With SaaS, monthly subscription fees fit easily into even a small business budget.

Hosted business applications can be accessed from anywhere with a web browser; without the need for downloads or special tools. This makes them ideal for distributed teams needing to access centralized information for sales, products, services, accounting and other information that drives business.

PHASE 2’s hosted applications can be accessed within hours of purchase for basic applications, and a few days for customized applications. More importantly, PHASE 2 offers bundled applications that allow customers to purchase two or more hosted applications at once, and to benefit from integration of the services by PHASE 2 expert technicians. Integration of applications improves productivity and allows for unique workflows to be customized into one online portal.

“SaaS applications are incredibly effective for small- to medium-sized businesses that want access to robust business software but cannot afford the upfront costs of hardware, software and IT expertise,” states Kevin Doherty, CEO at PHASE 2 International. “Studies have already shown that SaaS solutions can save 80 percent over traditional costs for this software, when the hassles of IT maintenance and upgrades are taken into full account. Now businesses can outsource IT responsibilities to PHASE 2. In this way, software becomes much like other utilities you simply plug into, like electricity, Internet, or cable. This makes it incredibly easy for customers to operate and to afford.”

“These top-of-the-line network business applications have, traditionally, remained only affordable for midsized and large companies,” Doherty continued. “SaaS hosted solutions make products like SharePoint and Dynamics accessible to much smaller customers, making them far more competitive. Typically, integration of various applications and integration of processes only comes at a huge cost. With PHASE 2, some integration and customization is included, and further workflow integration with tools comes at fixed prices that are much lower than you would imagine.”

PHASE 2 is currently offering six hosted solutions for businesses that can be integrated and bundled according to customers’ needs. PHASE 2 is planning to expand its portfolio of applications in the near future -- to offer the widest selection of hosted software.
