PHASE 2 International Opens Pacific Northwest Office to Serve Growing Demand for SaaS

SaaS Continues to Gain Popularity Across and Beyond Target Markets of

Architecture, Manufacturing & Hospitality

HONOLULU, Hawaii–(EMWPresswire)–PHASE 2 International (www.phase2int.com)

announced today that it is continuing its efforts to grow the business

and expand its presence with the opening of a new Seattle-area Pacific

Northwest office. The companys success, as

evidenced by its recent e-Biz Software of the

Year award and exceptional revenue and profit

growth in the first half of 2008 comes from the outstanding success of

its software as a service (SaaS) deployments in major vertical markets

that include Architecture, Construction, Manufacturing and Hospitality.

The second U.S. mainland office to be established this summer, the new

PHASE 2 office in Spokane, Washington, joins the companys

Chicago, Illinois, office, which is led by Regional Sales Manager Donald

Stroud.

PHASE 2s newest sales base in the Pacific

Northwest opened its doors on August 4th, led by Business Manager Brion

Potter. Potter joined PHASE 2 this summer, bringing nearly three decades

of experience in technology sales and customer service to PHASE 2 and

its customersboth current and future. Brions

breadth of experience is a huge asset to PHASE 2,

said Kevin Doherty, PHASE 2s CEO. As

an entrepreneur, he has been in the very same position as many of our

customers and target customers; and as an experienced IT expert and VAR,

he has the specific expertise to help clients find the products that

will fit their needs.

Potter was president of Imperial Data Supply, a computer hardware and

software sales and service company, from 1977 through 1997, during which

time he grew the company to an $8 million multi-location business,

before selling it to publicly-traded MCSi in 1997. He subsequently

managed and grew the Northwest branch of its successor company,

Cleveland-based MCPC. Companiesno

matter what the sizeneed good tools to run

properly. Software as a service is a great option for SMB companies that

need professional solutions, and for larger companies that want to

reduce the overhead of owning, hosting and managing the software,

said Potter. Im

excited to have a part in bringing PHASE 2s

SaaS to companies in the Pacific Northwest and our Partner network.

The practical nature of software as a

service makes it a great way for companies to have the best available

software tools to work with, without overwhelming their businesses with

high up-front costs or infrastructure changes,

added Doherty. We see a great deal of

potential in the Pacific Northwest, and were

thrilled to be able to open that office under Brions

leadership; his expertise and experience ensure a quality presence there

for PHASE 2.

Ive been a fan

and a user, said Potter, so

now being a part of PHASE 2 is great. The consumer base and our

SharePartner reseller program offer access to great untapped potential

here, and I look forward to helping PHASE 2and

its client companiesgrow.

PHASE 2s SaaS application solutions include

its ShareCAD Pro®, a powerful centralized

platform based on Microsoft SharePoint for contractors, architects and

manufacturers; and a host of other applications that it provides to

customers on a central server-based pay as

you go basis. Offering use of Microsofts

SharePoint, Exchange, Project Server, CRM, Office Communicator and Team

Foundation Server, as well as PHASE 2’s own ShareMeeting and

award-winning ShareCAD Pro, the low total cost of ownership incorporated

in PHASE 2s SaaS (software as a service)

model allows customers to benefit from a broader range of products than

they could otherwise consider.

PHASE 2s SharePartner program lets resellers

provide the companys pay

as you go application access to customers

for whom outright purchase and in-house hosting may not otherwise be

economically feasible or practical. Resellers that participate in

SharePartner benefit from co-marketing, training and support for the

generous suite of affordable solutions they can offer to their clients

through PHASE 2.
