HansaWorld wins European IT Excellence Award 2011
STOCKHOLM, February 12, 2011 - HansaWorld, an award-winning provider of Integrated Business Platforms and mobility solutions has been selected as the winner of the European IT Excellence Award 2011 in the Software as a Service Solution category. HansaWorld demonstrated to the independent panel of judges how their SaaS implementation at Intelligent Energy, a leading clean power systems company based in the UK, US, Japan and India, has had a dramatic effect on their customer´s business.
HansaWorld offers a complete array of SaaS components, including Cloud-based Hosting, monthly Licensing and installation-free Web Clients, and customers are free too choose which of these components to use. They also offer a range of add-on Cloud Services, which can be subscribed for monthly by any customer, regardless of server location, including credit card processing, SMS triggers from workflow, postcode addressing, exchange rate uploads, electronic tax filing, eInvoicing and integration with couriers such as Fedex.
The SaaS options are suited to most companies that want to reduce their investment in IT infrastructure and the costs associated with its support, those that have constraints on their capital, and those with many remote users where it is hard to control the hardware and operating system on which the users will work.
"We have been offering most of the components of SaaS for so long before the current industry hype that paradoxically it is hard to be seen as one of the groundbreakers" says Stephen Jay, International Sales Director for Hansaworld "We are delighted with the focus of the European IT Excellence Awards on actual delivery and benefits truly realised by customers, which proves that we are at the forefront of the SaaS movement. What other worldwide SaaS vendors can demonstrate over 20 years of development and testing in their software, a system that covers ERP, CRM and vertical market solutions, and 25 language versions covering some 45 modules? We also believe we have a clear lead in our ability to run offline at remote locations in the event of loss of internet connection, our handling of customisationsfor each customer, and the ease with which we can link the software to third-party solutions that can be either on-site or cloud-based."
HansaWorld has been shortlisted for the European IT Excellence Awards twice before - in 2008 and 2010.
