ATLANTA, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As enterprises in all industries intensify their focus on the value of cloud computing, demand has increased for speedier access to the cloud's value through solutions that are secure, quick to implement and easy to use. Metafile Information Systems (http://www.metaviewer.com) and SaaSplaza (http://www.saasplaza.com) today answered the call for additional cloud solutions delivered more quickly and securely. Both organizations today announced a strategic partnership to advance and simplify integrated accounting automation of Microsoft Dynamics enterprise resource planning (ERP) technology installations in the cloud among Metafile's value-added resellers (VAR), referral partners and systems integrators. The announcement was made at the Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2011 Conference, held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
Metafile is a major independent provider of "paperless ERP" accounts payable (AP), accounts receivable (AR) and human resources (HR) document management and workflow technology. Its flagship MetaViewer solution easily integrates with all four Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions (GP, AX, SL and NAV) – the foundation of many organizations' ERP technological infrastructure in a variety of industries. SaaSplaza, the SaaS hosting service provider of choice for Microsoft Dynamics partners, allows VARs to offer their ERP and CRM solutions from the cloud quickly and inexpensively.
The Metafile-SaaSplaza partnership will offer Microsoft Dynamics partners secure access to SaaSplaza's SAS 70 Type II-certified turnkey platform. The platform will fully integrate with implementations of MetaViewer Online, the hosted version of MetaViewer. The partnership enables Metafile's Microsoft Dynamics partners to offer MetaViewer Online without investing in technology and tools to execute and support cloud implementations. In addition, Microsoft Dynamics partners can apply more focus on configuration and training at customer sites rather than implementation issues, speeding time-to-value for their customers while boosting partners' potential for significant long-term recurring revenue.
"SaaSplaza's cloud delivery model and focus on SAS 70 Type II security standards is in perfect alignment with Microsoft's focus on cloud security, as well as with our partners' efforts to balance the demands of implementing and managing technology securely and counseling customers on its use," said Nick Sprau, vice president of marketing with Metafile Information Systems. "Through SaaSplaza, Metafile also offers its customers a packaged MetaViewer Online solution that promotes maximum ROI with minimum operational disruption. As our Microsoft Dynamics partner program continues to grow, we're looking forward to the simplicity, savings, focus, flexibility and security that our partnership with SaaSplaza will bring to those partners."
As customers increasingly move to the cloud, SaaSplaza will boost its Microsoft Dynamics service offerings among its partner and customer base to include AP and AR document management and workflow technology via the MetaViewer Online solution.
"Our partnership with Metafile is a great opportunity to mutually extend our focus on advancing Microsoft Dynamics in the cloud," said Olivier Meynier, director at SaaSplaza. "We are very committed to support Metafile's Partners in winning new deals and building a sustainable SaaS business."
