PEM Automates Delivery of Exchange-based E-mail and SharePoint Services
HERNDON, Va., and PRAHA, CZECH REPUBLIC, May 15, 2007 – SWsoft today announced that GAUZY, s.r.o. has launched SWsoft PEM software to automate delivery of business class email and collaboration services using Microsoft Windows-based platforms to its customers in the Czech Republic.
Using PEM, GAUZY is able to offer online ordering and automatic provisioning with its service plans. PEM allows Gauzy customers to customize their base plans by adding resources such as disk space, mailboxes and mobility solutions. Gauzy targets small and medium businesses and utilizes PEM's hierarchical reseller features to manage channels partners, including portals, hosting providers, hardware vendors and small resellers. Gauzy's service plans offer effective tools for collaboration with zero investment. They also create new opportunities for Indepedent Software Vendors (ISVs) to develop hosted applications and tap into the growing market for software as a service (SaaS).
"PEM gives our partners the opportunity to sell, provision, manage and bill Exchange and SharePoint services using their own brands," said Otakar Školoud, technical director of GAUZY, s.r.o. "Using SWsoft's robust PEM solution to automate delivery and service management, our customers can share their documents, calendars and tasks, and communicate perfectly from their offices, Windows Mobile devices, Internet cafes or anywhere they need to do business."
PEM is a customizable data center automation solution that allows service providers to more efficiently manage their infrastructure. With PEM's modular design and flexible architecture, a system can expand to include new services and scale to several millions of customers.
