Commence Corporation to Offer Cloud Computing Option for Popular CRM

– New Offering to Provide Flexible Pricing —

TINTON FALLS, N.J. (October 8, 2009) – Commence Corporation
, a leading provider of customer relationship
management (CRM) software solutions designed specifically for small- to
mid-size businesses, today announced details of the new cloud computing
edition of its award-winning CRM software. The new offering, planned for
January 2010, will initially be deployed for the Amazon Web Service’s
Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2 )

Amazon EC2 is a Web service that provides resizable computing capacity for
the “cloud,” enabling users to increase or decrease capacity needed for
applications within minutes. In the EC2 environment, Commence’s popular CRM
software will be run on secure, shared servers; customers will not need a
data center, additional office space, or a technology team. The service will
be offered under a subscription model, enabling customers to pay only for
the functionality they desire.

“We are excited to leverage Amazon’s EC2 cloud computing environment and
take advantage of the increased scalability, high availability, reliability
and disaster recovery options that it offers, ” commented Todd Pape, chief
technology officer at Commence. “This approach enables us to offer a
world-class solution to our customers at a fraction of the cost of
implementation on their own. In addition, the service leverages Amazon’s
global cloud data centers enabling Commence to further extend our service
within Europe.”

Commence provides a central database for capturing, managing and sharing
vital customer information, while customers retain ownership of data and
business processes. It can be tailored to fit different industries and
business requirements and, with the cloud technology, there are no
restrictions on customizability. Its adaptable, modular design allows users
to select applications from a comprehensive suite of business functions,
including contact management, lead management, activity management, sales
force automation, marketing and campaign management, quoting, project
management and customer service.
