Noosh Announces New Customers Benefitting From Delivery Model
Press release from the issuing company
SANTA CLARA, CA, March 10, 2004 – Noosh, the leader in print management software-as-service solutions, today announced the addition of new customers and the migration of several long-time customers to the latest Noosh technology, Noosh 5.
New accounts from the past year include leading Fortune 500 companies such as Capital One, Hewlett-Packard, and Nextel Communications. Other major account additions include Erickson Retirement Homes, The San Jose Mercury News, and The San Diego Union Tribune. Noosh has also added three new US Federal Government agencies: the National Institute of Health, Department of the Interior/Fish and Wildlife Service, and Office of Justice Programs. Earlier Noosh customers choosing to migrate to Noosh 5 included General Electric and the Star Tribune Company.
All of these customers subscribe to Noosh’s “software-as-service” application suite. Instead of incurring the high costs associated with installing and maintaining software in-house, Noosh customers pay a fixed monthly fee for use and benefit from the rapid deployment that is often difficult to achieve with in-house projects. Suppliers can be brought online in a matter of hours, and, for customers deploying in 2003 and beyond, suppliers pay no order transaction fees.
Unlike other hosted software applications, Noosh 5 has been designed for easy integration with existing business applications. “Noosh’s on demand technology is easily customizable; moreover, its APIs allowed us extend Noosh’s core functionality to build a book publishing business application for our customer, BookworXs, (a subsidiary Georg von Holtzbrinck) that has greatly improved the process of planning, estimating and pricing new publications and reprints,” said Wolfgang Weber, CEO of Heidelberg Prinect Systemhaus, a division of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen that has integrated Noosh with BookworXs’ existing SAP, Klopotek and internally developed pricing software applications.
“Our customers need to control costs and shorten time to market of print and direct mail projects,” said Mike Gardner, CEO, Noosh, Inc. “The software-as-service model and rapid supplier enablement allows them to get started with Noosh quickly. The flexibility in configuration and customization ensures that they will receive value in each of their unique business environments.”
