FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Company Extends Reach of Its Software-as-a-Service Commerce Network to More Than 1 Million SMBs through New Cloud-Based App Stores and Global Partners.
SAN MATEO, CA–January 17, 2013–SaaS Markets, a global leading business app store provider, today announced a highly successful year marked by a doubled traffic increase in Q4 2012 alone, expanded customer reach through its 24 cloud-based app stores, and growing traction in the enterprise IT and financial markets.
Through strategic partnerships with local and state chamber of commerce organizations, financial services firms and enterprise IT services vendors, SaaS Markets-powered app stores today reach more than a million business owners and merchants.
As a result of the benefits it offers to the SMB community, SaaS Markets attracted partnerships from a growing group of chambers of commerce in 2012, including Washington and Montana state-level chambers as well as local chambers including Greater Richmond, Va. and Pocatello, Idaho. This month alone, SaaS Markets has added chambers in the Auburn Area, Wash., and Park City, Utah, to its list of partners. The company expects many more chamber partners to come onboard in the coming months.
As the company moves into 2013, SaaS Markets is also making significant strides in both the financial and enterprise space through the addition of partnerships with companies including one of the world’s largest card processors.
“Our success is directly attributed to our growing SMB partnerships and reflects the surging demand for easy-to-find, -use and -afford SaaS-based applications,” said Ferdi Roberts, founder and CEO of SaaS Markets. “The SaaS industry is predicted to grow tremendously in 2013, and we are already seeing this projection become realized by the increase in interest for our app stores by both SMBs and now enterprises.”
Through these partnerships, SaaS Markets delivers its strategic partners the ability to provide members and business customers with app stores offering more than 1,300 trusted cloud-based applications specifically designed to meet a wide range of critical business needs. The app stores, accessible through each of the partners’ websites, provide valuable tools designed for members to help them run their businesses and maximize success. By delivering these various applications in one place, partners allow their members and customers to save valuable time, money and resources.
Adding to its company growth, SaaS Markets expanded the executive team with the strategic appointments of Heidi Elgaard to global chief marketing officer and Howard Rosen to vice president of Engineering. In addition, the company is in a rapid hiring mode and is moving to expanded offices in San Mateo at the end of the month.
