QuickArrow and Pervasive Software Partner to Deliver Game-Changing "SaaS-to-Anything" Integrations

Configurable Pre-Built Integrations Replace Complex Custom Code Engagements, Dramatically Decrease Sales and Deployments Cycles

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - QuickArrow, Inc., the leader in SaaS Services Automation, and Pervasive Software®, a global value leader in embeddable data management and agile integration software, today announced that their partnership has enabled QuickArrow to deliver a universal data integration solution that is easy to configure, maintain, and support. QuickArrow is leveraging the power of Pervasive Data Integrator™ to deliver QuickConnectIT, an integration engine capable of integrating QuickArrow with any application. This allows QuickArrow and Pervasive to deliver integrations that are consistent with the speed and economics of the Software as a Service (SaaS) model on one code base. The partnership also enables QuickArrow to better focus on its core competency, Professional Services Automation (PSA).

The partners have already implemented more than 50 bi-directional integrations between QuickArrow and other best-of-breed applications such as salesforce.com, Microsoft Dynamics™ CRM, Peachtree, and QuickBooks. With QuickConnectIT and more than 150 standard Pervasive adapters in Pervasive Data Integrator™ v9, the partnership will enable QuickArrow to integrate with almost any other application using a configuration process versus a custom development exercise.

"Pervasive and QuickArrow have partnered for five years to provide strategic and economic value for both companies and for our clients," said QuickArrow Chief Operating Officer Kevin Bury. "Thanks to this relationship, we can now offer our clients the ability to easily integrate our SaaS solution with any other business critical application." He continued, "As a result, we can deliver deeper functionality than ever before, and we have also streamlined our sales, implementation, and support processes to provide our clients with even greater Speed-to-Value."

QuickConnectIT leverages Pervasive Data Integrator and QuickArrow's proven Web Services API to support both on-premise and SaaS integrations and can also operate as an Integration as a Service (IaaS) solution. On premise, the solution enables businesses to connect QuickArrow with their other business critical applications including CRM, ERP, Financials, and HR.

"Like QuickArrow, Pervasive has been in the SaaS business from the beginning. Pervasive Data Integrator is ideal for innovative SaaS partners like QuickArrow that need to provide both hosted and on-premise integration," said Mike Hoskins, CTO and general manager, Integration Products at Pervasive. "Both companies are now able to focus more efficiently on their core businesses, QuickArrow on industry-leading PSA and Pervasive on delivering rapid, reliable integrations that are the key to unlocking the true value and potential of the SaaS model."

"Innovative partnerships such as the one with QuickArrow illustrate Pervasive's strategy of delivering agile integration technology and services for SaaS vendors and ISVs," said John Farr, president and CEO of Pervasive Software. "We are confident that the competitive advantage being realized by QuickArrow will contribute to a growing, mutually beneficial partnership."
