This round, led by InVenture, Inc. (Switzerland), will serve as a useful boost to help the company keep pace with all the demand from ISPs fro ASP-enabling infrastructure.
“The size of this round and the lead taken by InVenture are a strong vote of
confidence in the powerful contribution that Systemsfusion`s technology can make in
turning the ASP model into a fully workable and cost-effective solution for software
distribution,” Leo Baxter, chairman, said.
According to Peter Friedli, managing director, InVenture, the company is interested in strong technologies that advance the development of the
“Systemsfusion`s framework for building the ASP channel
certainly fits into that category,” Friedli said.
“The market needs what Systemsfusion has to offer, and they have beat everyone
else to the starting gate, so they have an excellent chance of becoming the market
leader in what promises to be a very lucrative arena.”
According to the Systemfusion, the money raised will assist in launching Systemfusion’s services to providers interested in hosting software applications.
