Solution 6 debuts ASP talents

Hot on the heels of the signing of an application service provider deal with SAP, accountancy software vendor Solution 6 last month made its first ASP foray by signing a deal with Unicef Australia.

As reported last week (ARN June 9, page 1), Solution 6 will provide an integrated software system including SAP financial software and enterprise Internet applications such as e-mail calendaring and scheduling to Unicef's offices in Adelaide and Sydney. The agreement is part of a pilot program that is expected to go live early next month.

The vendor will also host Unicef's data centre and provide an intranet along with customer-management capabilities.

The Unicef deal comes at a time when Solution 6 believes it has caught the front end of a technology concept that could change the way customers deal with their providers.

"Just eight weeks after announcing the SAP partnership we already have the infrastructure and expertise necessary to pilot delivery of pre-configured enterprise accounting to the SME market.

"By using this model we can deliver a solution to Unicef in a short timeframe, with minimum hardware and implementation cost," claimed Richard McLean, Solution 6's general manager, marketing.

According to McLean, one of Unicef's prime reasons for adopting this ASP approach was the sheer cost of capital investment in server hardware and IT staff to support that hardware. "The cost involved with migrating to a new system by traditional delivery means is prohibitive," he said.

The Unicef deal represents the first of what Solution 6 calls business templates as the vendor seeks to spread its ASP message to other vertical industries.

"Since our entry into the ASP business, we have received formal and informal interest from organisations around the world in different vertical industries wishing to participate in our pilot program," McLean added. by Solution 6 debuts ASP talentsSYDNEY - Hot on the heels of the signing of an application service provider deal with SAP, accountancy software vendor Solution 6 last month made its first ASP foray by signing a deal with Unicef Australia.
