25th August, 2020 – Iptor, a leader in distribution and supply chain management, planning, and logistics software and services, today announces that is has signed an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) agreement with Meridian IT Australia. Meridian IT offers its customers an end-to-end service for the design, implementation, and support of enterprise information systems.
Developed to meet an increasing demand from customers to migrate from on-premise to cloud solutions, the agreement enables Iptor to provide a cost-effective, secure, reliable, and high-performance SaaS solution which is managed in the Asia Pacific region.
With Iptor as the sole vendor, it is responsible for the application software (Iptor DC1 and IP1) and infrastructure with the provision of associated maintenance, support, and professional services wrapped up in a SaaS package. As a result, customers will have a single vendor touchpoint, as opposed to multiple, often competing providers. Both IBM iSeries and IBM X86 are included in the solution and the IaaS is provisioned in the NextDC data centers based in Sydney and Brisbane – minimizing latency for customers in the region.
Paul Nobbs, Iptor Regional President, APAC, said, “We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Meridian IT. Our customers increasingly want to simplify their technological life. Moving to a SaaS solution is key to this – as is the need to work with trusted, proven suppliers and partners. The combination of Iptor and Meridian IT, with their local knowledge and expertise, gives our APAC customers just that as they look for an alternative to upgrading their on-premise hardware.”
Karell Garcia, Sales Executive, Global Sales, Meridian IT Australia, said, “The Meridian Iptor partnership allows Iptor to offer its applications in the cloud. This scalable software as a service (SaaS) model enables Iptor’s clients in the Asia-Pacific region to quickly right size to meet todays dynamic business needs.”
