pTools Launches new Software as a Service Web Content Management Solution

Irish Enterprise Web Content Management provider pTools has today announced the launch of its new Software as a Service (SaaS) Web Content Management (WCM) solution at Europe’s biggest technology conference, the Dublin Web Summit. The new software allows content to be securely distributed to users across desk-top, mobile and tablet devices for web, extranet and intranet from a single secure source, more effectively than has ever before been possible.

pTools SaaS application combines all of the enterprise level features of pTools into a single easy-to-use software service, available for a monthly or annual subscription fee rather than the traditional up-front licensing model. pTools has invested over €1million in re-developing its WCM software for Cloud and SaaS delivery.

The Dublin headquartered software company, pTools, was recently included for the first time in the long-list of vendors in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management 2012 report and the company’s commitment to SaaS delivery using the latest cloud computing technologies and infrastructure partners is seen as an important factor in this recognition. Gartner estimates that SaaS revenue for 2012 will reach $14.5 billion in 2012 – a 17.9 percent increase from 2011 – and reach a projected $22.1bn in 2015, with cloud computing driving adoption forward.

Commenting on the launch of pTools SaaS, Keith Wood, CEO of pTools says: “This is a major initiative for pTools and already we are seeing take-up of the new pTools SaaS offering by new and existing customers in all markets. It’s great to be able to launch this in our home city, Dublin, at what is effectively one of the biggest and most dynamic new technology conferences in the world this year.”

Paddy Cosgrove, founder of the Web Summit says “We're delighted that pTools, a fantastic Irish company with business internationally, is using the Web Summit as a platform to launch its new software service. Enterprise and cloud are two very important aspects of the Web Summit this year.”

Key aspects of the new pTools SaaS offering include:

  • Full-featured enterprise class WCM Software-as-a-Service.
  • Rapid, sign-up and simple on-ramp to get started.
  • Multi-tier architecture, back-ups and disaster recovery as standard.
  • Preferred territoriality, security, and performance options.
  • Global cloud partners and dedicated points of presence.

pTools SaaS enables partners and customers to easily deploy enterprise class WCM and other applications based on a recurring payment model. Traditional up-front licensing is replaced by fully managed on-going service designed to make continuous improvement easier and more efficient. pTools SaaS content delivery network is based on tier-one infrastructure, data center and connectivity providers with world-class security, performance, back-up and recovery services available to all as standard.
