Aspidistra Software, which makes B2B E-Commerce software, has cut a secure private cloud deal with Iomart, the companies announced Tuesday (Nov. 18).
Aspidistra, based in the southwest of England, offered the best reason for its need to move some operations to the cloud: sharp business growth. Firm owner Paul Dorey said that “the difficulties encountered by many companies in managing their business-to-business ecommerce operations online have led to a surge in sales of Aspidistra’s unique Shopfront software. Businesses often have complex pricing, discounting, ordering, stock and delivery information in their Sage Systems. Our software integrated to Sage makes it seamlessly available to their account customers through their websites. We use a private cloud to support our software which is much more secure and cost effective than public cloud. This gives us greater control on how we allocate resources to our customers, allowing them to concentrate on their business.”
Aspidistra Software has more than 120 customers in the UK and Ireland. These range in scale from small companies with a few employees using Sage 50, to large groups of companies employing hundreds of people. Customers range from small businesses like The Old Bag Company in Devon, to Belron the parent company of Autoglass.
