Total-Solution ASP Offers Siebel Front Office Applications Outsourcing to Rapid Growth "Pre-Mid-Market" Companies

Applicast has extended its partnership with Siebel Systems to bring the power of Siebel Systems’ Web-based Front Office Applications to a relatively untapped market: early-stage, aggressive-growth companies in the "pre-mid-market."

Rita Terdiman, vice president and research director at Gartner Group, said "Siebel and Applicast are a winning combination for pre-mid-market companies with business management needs that are growing dramatically.  Along with limited IT resources, young and successful companies often have limited business management software systems. Applicast should allow these companies to deploy the most complete front office applications in a timely and cost effective manner."

Applicast, now a Premier Partner in the Siebel Alliance Program, combines Siebel Systems’ front office software with Applicast’s implementation and outsourcing services to deliver powerful front office solutions to the pre-mid-market. Through this alliance, Applicast claims it will allow these organizations to better manage aggressive growth and change by standardizing on enterprise-class solutions early, without the time and cost typically associated with deploying top-tier business systems. Applicast has been working closely with Siebel Systems’ mid-market sales team over the previous year to bring front office software to businesses early in their lifecycle.

"Aggressive pre-mid market companies can now implement Siebel’s Web-based Front Office software without the internal resources that are typically required," said Bruce Cleveland, vice president, Siebel Alliances, Siebel Systems. "Applicast provides the full-lifecycle service these companies need and Siebel Systems is committed to working with Applicast to make our joint customers successful."

Siebel Systems provides an integrated family of Web-enabled front office software for sales, marketing and customer service. Applicast delivers the advantages of Siebel Systems’ software — increased sales, profitability and customer satisfaction — to pre-mid-market companies through the Applicast Business Applications NetworkÔ . With the Applicast Business Applications Network, Siebel customers get rapid implementation of their Siebel Front Office solution using Applicast’s FastFit solutions. Applicast’s full-lifecycle service includes data center hosting or remote application management allowing 7 X 24 X 365 user and systems support as well as proactive upgrades.
