Carolina Software as a Service (formerly Carolina Business Systems, Inc) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as an information technology resource partner by SC Launch! Companies participating in the SC Launch! program are high-potential knowledge economy businesses in automotive/aerospace, advanced materials/fibers, alternative energy, biomedical, life sciences, nanotechnology, homeland security and information technology.
Through their strategic partnership with ERC Broadband for data center infrastructure and bandwidth, CSAAS will provide quick and affordable access to quality software solutions allowing emerging businesses to focus more resources on other areas and less on its IT needs.
In the last several years, CSaaS has transitioned from a traditional Software VAR to become one of the premiere Software as a Service providers for business and education in the state. This transition stems from the movement in the overall IT industry that has seen software vendors acknowledge that many companies need software but have less than ideal IT budgets. SaaS (Software as a Service) is a trend in the IT industry that allows a company to pay a monthly fee to subscribe to software services instead of having to purchase it.
“We are excited about the partnership and we’re convinced the SC Launch! program will have a major impact in helping encourage and foster high impact, knowledge-based companies ,” said John H. Macomson, President and CEO. “CSAAS has become a regional leader in hosted Software As A Service solutions in South Carolina. And the partnership with SC Launch provides a great opportunity for CSAAS to be a good corporate citizen and help in the process of SC expanding their high-potential knowledge economy.”
