Atlantic Global and OpSource Team to Bring Market-Leading Project Management Solution to the SMB Marketplace

Atlantic Global Chooses OpSource On-Demand Based on Gartner's Strong Recommendation

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - November 5, 2009) - OpSource™, the leader in Cloud operations, today announced that U.K.-based Atlantic Global PLC has successfully deployed OpSource On-Demand™ to bring its market-leading project portfolio management software to the SMB marketplace while enhancing ease-of-use and security for existing enterprise clients, such as GlaxoSmithKline. Atlantic Global OnDemand is a comprehensive software suite designed to manage every aspect of a company's business, ranging from simple timesheet and expense management all the way up to project portfolio management. Atlantic Global chose OpSource On-Demand to provide the infrastructure for this new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution because of OpSource On-Demand's unmatched reliability, security and technical support.

"Atlantic Global's mission is to help businesses to better understand their resource capability and deployment so they can improve their operational efficiency and effectiveness. Given the great performance advantages that the SaaS model brings, moving our solution to the on-demand arena made perfect sense," said Ian Needs, On Demand Product Manager. "Our choice of a partner was equally straight-forward. Based on the strong recommendation of Gartner, we met with OpSource and from there it was clear that OpSource was our only choice. OpSource OnDemand offers unmatched security and performance, plus its fully integrated solution means that we won't have to worry about things like billing and analytics in the future."

OpSource's proven support track record also gave Atlantic Global the peace of mind needed to move to the on-demand world. "OpSource offers unmatched support," Needs said. "When you are asking brand-name enterprises to migrate their critical project management data outside of their firewalls, you need to know that there is going to be someone there 24/7 ensuring quality. OpSource alone offered us this level of reliable, time-tested performance."

Atlantic Global also chose OpSource because of the company's rapidly growing footprint in Europe. "SaaS solutions are just being introduced in the U.K. so we needed to find a partner that could help us navigate these new waters. There is simply no other company that comes close to matching OpSource's expertise and thought leadership," Needs said. "Working with OpSource has given us a great advantage in a new marketplace."

"Atlantic Global's use of on-demand technology is the perfect example of how SaaS implementations can both bring powerful solutions to new markets and improve performance for the enterprise," said Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource. "We are pleased to partner with Atlantic Global to bring their innovative business software to even more users."
