Pronto unveils cloud division to support growth in demand
Australian technology company Pronto Software has unveiled a new-look cloud division, Pronto Cloud Managed Solutions.
Driven by increased demand for its services, Pronto Cloud has been rebranded from its former name, Pronto Hosted Services. With 70 percent of new Pronto customers choosing to implement a cloud solution or benefit from managed services, the unveiling of Pronto Cloud signifies strong investment into cloud as a major growth area for the business, according to the company.
Pronto Software chief operating officer Chad Gates says Pronto Hosted Services was introduced in 2002 to deliver a wider ERP deployment choice for customers and has seen tremendous growth over the past few years.
“We are pleased to announce that Pronto Hosted Services will now operate as Pronto Cloud. This is an exciting phase for our business as we continue to invest heavily and expand our cloud offering, supporting a large percentage of the Pronto community not only for hosting and managing Pronto Xi but a vast array of customer business critical platforms,” Gates says.
“Customers have placed their trust in us for years with business critical applications, now they are trusting us for their infrastructure and the combined management of both. Customers know what they’re getting with Pronto Cloud, including where their data resides.”
With the ability to master digital disruption as a top concern for Australian CEOs, and IDC’s prediction that 50 percent of IT budgets will be tied to digital transformation initiatives by 2020, Pronto Cloud is positioned to offer a local, tailored and comprehensive technical solutions to the enterprise market, Gates continues.
“We are certainly seeing more Australian businesses pursuing a cloud-first strategy as it provides an agile and adaptable IT environment that’s ready to take advantage of new opportunities to fuel growth and deliver better customer experiences. With local expertise and level 3 datacentres, Pronto Cloud offers unparalleled service and support to maximise the effectiveness of our customers’ technology investment,” comments Gates.
According to the Pronto Cloud manager Chris Dickinson, “One of the keys to the success of Pronto Cloud is that not only do we provide and manage the infrastructure platform for our customers, we also wrap a managed service around all the technical aspects of the Pronto Xi ERP including future upgrades.
“We provide a scalable solution so you can choose exactly what you need and rapidly change it to suit circumstances or emerging opportunities. By managing your business applications and IT infrastructure for you, Pronto Cloud allows you to focus 100 per cent on what’s most important – running and growing your business.”
