Perceptive Software, LightEdge Solutions
Partner to offer Hosted Application
CEOs for both companies are currently finalists in
Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year program
SHAWNEE, Kan.; DES MOINES, Iowa (June 14, 2006) – Software developer, Perceptive Software Inc., and technology outsourcing firm, LightEdge Solutions, recently announced a partnership that will enable Perceptive Software to offer its document management, imaging and workflow software on an additional web-enabled application.
Perceptive Software is on the leading edge of a trend called Software as a Service (SaaS). As a hosted model, a SaaS-enabled application is a true “zero-footprint” solution which provides the benefit of the software without the infrastructure and maintenance normally associated with additional technology. The processing power, storage and maintenance necessary to run the application is provided through partner, LightEdge Solutions.
Scott Coons, president and CEO of Perceptive Software, said, “We're pleased to expand our customers’ options and offer them the ability to acquire our solutions through an additional deployment strategy. SaaS-enabled software is effective, easy to implement and very cost-effective."
The CEOs of both LightEdge Solutions and Perceptive Software were both recently honored by being named finalists in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year awards program for the Central Midwest region. “LightEdge chooses partners very carefully. It’s gratifying to see that all of the positive attributes that we saw in Perceptive Software were also recognized by Ernst & Young,” Jim Masterson, CEO of LightEdge Solutions, said, “Each company has incredible vision, drive and talent; together our synergy and potential is limitless.”
Software as a Solution, most notably used by Salesforce.com, is emerging as a trend which Gartner Group has declared as one of the top five technologies of 2005. The reason SaaS is becoming popular is due to sheer economics. Many companies need solutions but cannot afford the upfront cost to purchase, implement and maintain the infrastructure necessary to host them. SaaS eases implementation, provides scalability and removes hurdles associated with upfront costs.
