Qwest Cyber.Solutions Announces Market-Targeted ASP Solutions

ASP Qwest Cyber.Solutions yesterday unveiled its plan to deliver ASP solutions designed for key market sectors, focusing on the finance, communications, healthcare and services sectors initially.

This marks the first time the company has outlined a description of what it's offering and the customers it's targeting.

"QCS has the tools, technology and experience to move our industry to the next level," John Charters, president and chief executive, said. "We don't believe in one size fits all, but we do believe that customers get real value from ASP services that meet their market requirements."

The newly packaged suite of ASP products is called Enterprise Freedom, and will serve as the foundation for the solutions being offered.

QCS believes it is important to identify key market segments, allowing the company to move ahead of competition to develop new solutions specifically tailored for high demand, early adopter industries where the ASP model is believed to bring immediate value in driving growth and success.

The QCS Enterprise Freedom Suite of ASP products is packaged to serve as the basis for QCS' sector specific solution offerings. Offering fully managed, flexible, scalable and secure IT solutions, the products are designed to address both current and future IT and business challenges.

The Enterprise Freedom suite includes three products currently.

Ultimate Freedom provides a bundled package of services for companies needing to get business critical applications up and running quickly. The product includes software, hosting and management and ongoing maintenance.

Freedom for Hosted Applications offers a package of hosting and management services for companies needing to focus on their core business competencies.

Freedom for Managed Applications is targeted to companies who want to preserve a current investment in IT infrastructure and software but require expertise and ongoing maintenance for strategic applications.

The suite offers a single point of contact and a simple monthly billing system, according to the company.

This news comes just a week after Qwest Cyber.Solutions announced its latest partner program (see related ASP-News story, Qwest Cyber.Solutions Launches Business Partner Program, May 18th, 2000).
