OpSource Accelerates AVOLENT’s Transition from Enterprise Software to SaaS

Delivers AVOLENT’s Paperless eBilling and eSettlement solutions to improve customer loyalty, reduce operational costs, and preserve natural resources


Santa Clara, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/25/2008 -- OpSource™, the SaaS delivery experts, today announced that AVOLENT, a leading provider of self-service eBilling and eSettlement solutions, has selected OpSource On-Demand™ to deliver its new software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings. As a well-established provider of enterprise software, AVOLENT was able to cost-effectively accelerate its transition to SaaS with OpSource, enabling B2B and B2C companies of any size to begin moving to paperless billing and settlement immediately.

AVOLENT will be providing two versions of its eBilling solution — Express and Standard — as SaaS offerings. These on-demand applications enable customers to consolidate multiple billing systems into single-view invoices, as well as reconcile payments to multiple accounts receivable systems. The combined robust capabilities of AVOLENT software and OpSource’s SaaS infrastructure will enable customers to scale to millions of transactions per day and thousands of concurrent users with maximum performance and reliability.

In addition to providing a complete SaaS application delivery solution for AVOLENT, OpSource’s focus on compliance is particularly important to Avolent’s enterprise business. OpSource On-Demand is Statement on Auditing Standards Number 70 (SAS 70) Type II audited, PCI compliant and includes a 100 percent uptime guarantee to support AVOLENT’s business-critical applications. And OpSource’s exclusive Success-Based Pricing™ tightly aligns OpSource and AVOLENT objectives by insuring that AVOLENT’s SaaS delivery costs increase only as its revenues grow.

Mike Seashols, CEO, AVOLENT, said, “OpSource provides a unique SaaS delivery solution that allows us to bring our first SaaS offerings online quickly and then expand and grow the infrastructure only as our business grows, not before it is needed. OpSource is also recognized as a leading provider of secure and scalable SaaS solutions and demonstrated a strong commitment to working with us to build a long-term and mutually beneficial partnership that maximizes success for both companies.”

Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource, said, “AVOLENT is a great example of how well-established software companies can make a rapid and profitable transition to SaaS to expand business opportunities among untapped segments of their markets. OpSource has the efficient, scalable infrastructure and flexible pricing model in place to deploy SaaS and Web applications quickly with the highest levels of performance, security, and availability. By leveraging our SaaS delivery capabilities to help companies go paperless, AVOLENT provides them with a double benefit: reducing investments in energy-consuming servers to run their applications while preserving natural resources and eliminating paper-based waste associated with antiquated billing practices.”
