Infopop to replace its Ensim ServerXchange solution with HSPcomplete to fully automate its hosting business, reduce costs and offer customers the most advanced hosting options available
Herndon, VA, October 7, 2003 - SWsoft, Inc., the leader in hosting automation and enterprise server software, today announced that Infopop Corporation, the trailblazer in the online community arena, has selected HSPcomplete to streamline and automate each aspect of its hosting business. HSPcomplete’s modular design will enable Infopop to more efficiently manage each component of its business precisely, while optimizing the utilization of hardware and personnel resources. With HSPcomplete, Infopop will have comprehensive Virtual Private Server (VPS) capabilities and advanced server consolidation technology, giving them the ability to offer customers several options for basic or more advanced hosting plans.
Infopop CEO, Ted O’Neill, said they plan to migrate from Ensim to HSPcomplete because it is a more scaleable, secure and powerful infrastructure that will help automate hosting operations. O’Neill went on to explain how SWsoft utilized its Advance Technology Group (ATG) to provide a seamless migration process for his customers from ServerXchange to HSPcomplete; as SWsoft has done for so many other ISPs and its customers wishing to switch from numerous other technologies.
“SWsoft continues to show innovation and deliver on its promise to automate each component of the hosting business from managing infrastructure to sales, billing, and e-commerce,” said O’Neill. “HSPcomplete makes perfect sense for Infopop because we can quickly and simply generate more revenue by offering new products and services such as VPS, managed hosting and managed applications, giving our customers more options and making us a one-stop-shop for all of our customers’ hosting needs.”
HSPcomplete will automate and simplify the management of hardware, OS, applications, backups, IP pools, e-commerce storefronts and customer payments, allowing Infopop to minimize support and management costs while boosting profitability. HSPcomplete will integrate with Infopop’s existing infrastructure to eliminate workflow bottlenecks to produce an automated high-volume, high-efficiency hosting operation. Mr. O’Neill said that with HSPcomplete, his team can focus on meeting customers’ expectations and executing sales and marketing strategies rather than spending a majority of its time and resources managing its infrastructure.
“In today’s competitive market, Hosting Service Providers (HSPs) cannot be over-burdened by high hardware management and customer support costs,” said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. “HSPcomplete gives industry leaders like Infopop the ability to optimize efficiencies throughout its hosting business while identifying new services that will differentiate its offerings from the competition, ensuring the opportunity for long-term and steady growth. With HSPcomplete’s integrated flexible billing features providers also have the ability to develop a multi-tiered sales and service channel that can be re-branded for various resellers. ”
