Asite and OpSource Announce Strategic Partnership to Deliver Software-as-a-Service Platform for the International Construction Industry

Scalability and Global Reach Key to Meeting Needs of the UK's Leading SaaS Provider for Construction IT

London, United Kingdom and Santa Clara, Calif. - Asite, the provider of the leading global Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for the construction industry, today announced a strategic partnership with OpSourceTM, the leader in Web operations. Asite will use OpSource On-DemandTM to support the delivery of their SaaS platform to an increasingly global audience. Asite joins a growing list of international companies selecting OpSource as their Web operations provider.

Asite delivers flexible construction IT solutions, including tools for collaboration, trading and sourcing for use by construction companies at every point in the supply chain. With its customers requiring an increasing amount of data storage, and with the company expanding geographically in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the USA, Asite needed a company that could manage and provide dynamic scalability for its SaaS infrastructure. Asite selected OpSource for the scalability, reliability and 100 percent uptime necessary to deploy the company's SaaS application to its growing customer base.

Nathan Doughty, COO of Asite, said, "Our relationship with OpSource pairs like-minded companies seeking to push the boundaries of innovation for SaaS application delivery and cloud computing, or ‘hardware-as-a-service' infrastructure delivery. By partnering with OpSource, we can rapidly expand our SaaS platform to meet our global demand and focus more than ever on delivering innovation and the best possible customer experience."

Treb Ryan, CEO of OpSource, said, "Asite was developing SaaS solutions even before they were being called SaaS. Selecting OpSource On-Demand will enable them to meet the demands of their client base as it grows - both geographically and in terms of the amount of data they work with - while also providing intercontinental redundancy and disaster recovery. We're honored to have earned Asite's trust as its Web operations provider."
