Leading Global SMB Hosting Provider Enables SaaS Vendors to Deliver OnDemand Solutions More Reliably and Cost-Effectively

Denver, CO – September 14, 2009 – Verio Inc., the leading provider in delivering online business solutions to SMBs worldwide, including web hosting, application hosting and Software as a Service (SaaS), today announced THINKstrategies, Inc., the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the on-demand services market, named Verio the latest winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.

The BoSS Awards program was announced in January 2009 as the latest initiative by THINKstrategies to bring attention to SaaS and cloud computing companies that are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.

Verio is the leading provider in delivering online business solutions to SMBs worldwide. Distributed through its global network of OEM and viaVerio channel partners, Verio’s solutions provide web hosting, application hosting and SaaS that enables SMBs to drive online success. Verio is a subsidiary of NTT Communications, one of the largest companies in the world and supports its operations with their highly reliable and scalable Global IP Network providing customers and partners with access to business solutions in more than 200 countries.

Accrisoft is a SaaS provider which provides small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) access to more than 80 web-based, turnkey modules including billing, e-mail marketing, calendaring, collaboration, content management and website design. Accrisoft needed to find a reliable and comprehensive hosting solution that could enable it to scale its operations economically while focusing on its primary SaaS business. Accrisoft selected Verio’s hosting services including its Shared offerings, Virtual Private Servers (VPS) and Managed Private Servers (MPS).

As a result of leveraging Verio’s hosting services, Accrisoft has achieved the following business benefits,

  • 15-20% increase in new customer acquisitions
  • 21% increase in revenue on an annual basis
  • Less than 9% customer churn rate

Accrisoft also estimates it has saved an average of $1.3 million dollars a year by not having to maintain its own hosting operations and being able to focus on its core SaaS business.

“Our primary focus is our customers and Verio consistently exceeds our expectations for service and reliability in helping serving these customers,” said Jeff Kline, President and CEO for Accrisoft.

It is for these reasons that Verio has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner. A full description of the company’s winning BoSS Award submission can be found at www.saas-showplace.com/awardSummary.php?key=696.

“As the demand for SaaS solutions grows, competition for these solutions is also escalating,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace. “It is increasingly important for SaaS providers to leverage the reliable and scalable hosting capabilities of companies, like Verio, to achieve their business objectives in a cost-effective fashion.”
