STRATO markets its Business Portal through a new corporate customer Website www.strato-pro.de and has built its own business on the technology it is selling to its customers. "This shows clearly how powerful this technology is", says Damian Schmidt, CEO of STRATO AG. "Based on our 10 years of experience with Web Hosting, the certified security level of the STRATO Data centre, and proven customer service quality, we can now bring business software as a service (SaaS) to small and midsize businesses.
“We are delighted to provide this new service offer to over a million STRATO customers - both old and new” says Juergen Schlenzig. SITEFORUM Group CEO. “Our feature-rich technology delivers affordable, world-class portals for every business starting immediately. SaaS changes the dynamics of the software industry to enable SMB’s to compete with multi-nationals online.” Key to the STRATO decision to use SITEFORUM was the automated billing and maintenance, which has provided a complete commercial and real-time build for web services on demand.
