Herndon, VA — August 12, 2004 – Today, SWsoft, the established leader in hosting automation and server virtualization software, announced that PEM, the leading carrier grade OSS/BSS solution, fully supports Microsoft technologies including Windows Hosting, Hosted Exchange and Hosted SharePoint. PEM provides robust support of these Microsoft technologies and now enables providers to offer messaging, collaboration, portal and other services through a single solution.
“Hosting is rapidly evolving into important new areas such as messaging and collaboration,” said Kurt Daniel, director of marketing, SWsoft. “Microsoft continues to make Windows, IIS, ASP.NET, Exchange and SharePoint more suitable for service providers.

SWsoft’s PEM For Virtually Any Service Offering
PEM OSS provides centralized resource management, service provisioning and infrastructure management. PEM’s BSS performs multi-tier resource usage accounting and billing. These OSS and BSS solutions were designed to be interoperable and tightly integrated but can be deployed and used separately.
Due to its modular design and extreme flexibility, PEM can accommodate the specific business requirements of practically any service provider and the provisioning and management of any current or future service offering.
"After extensive research and evaluation, we found PEM to be the one truly unique system that delivered upon its promise for both Windows and Linux environments,” said Paul Beckelheimer, Chief Operating Officer, Data393. “There really is nothing that compares to the way it meets our requirements at providing a scalable and extensible architecture that is virtually limitless. PEM is the one solution that meets our internal needs while supporting the requirements of our resellers and customers with its ability to successfully deploy and manage new offerings.”
The benefits of leveraging PEM OSS/BSS include lower cost and complexity, faster time-to-market with new offerings, and the ability to more effectively attract, upsell and retain customers.
