Model to Small Business
DESERT SPRINGS, Calif., Jan. 28 // -- DEMO 08 -- Small businesses now have the power to set their business free from the tyranny of costly servers and low-grade consumer applications. Today, CatalystWeb announced the launch of its flagship service, CatalystOffice, a suite of Web- based productivity and communications software designed specifically for fiercely independent businesses. With its breakthrough business model, CatalystOffice provides organizations with unlimited-user licenses based on the scalable space they need, rather than the number of users.
By utilizing a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), on-demand delivery system, CatalystOffice makes enterprise-grade email, document management, calendar, contacts and instant messaging (IM) affordable. Instead of spending $15,000 for server-based solutions, businesses can now sign up for a unique monthly plan based on how much space the organization needs. Plans start as low as $25 a month for 10GB and scale up to $125 a month for 100GB, with the first GB free.
"Years of working with entrepreneurial companies have shown us exactly what they need -- flawless and flexible communications and collaboration tools that help them grow their business," said Bob Mathew, CEO and founder of CatalystWeb. "CatalystOffice is the most cost-effective, turnkey productivity solution that fiercely independent companies need."
CatalystOffice's sleek interface includes groundbreaking features that naturally complement the way small businesses work:
-- Document Management: Unlike any other service, CatalystOffice allows
users to share files throughout an organization effortlessly. Users
can edit documents on their local computer and save changes online
without having to download, edit, and upload them. CatalystOffice
eliminates the need to use painfully slow VPNs or to email a document
-- Shared Workspace: CatalystOffice gives small businesses room to grow
and work from anywhere through an embedded, Web-based, shared
workspace that allows companies to collaborate across the office or
around the world.
-- Enterprise Grade IM: CatalystOffice IM is a company-wide, secure and
Web-based tool designed to improve communication, without the worry
of outside distractions that accompany typical consumer-based IM
-- CatalystOffice Sync: This tool allows companies to easily move and
synchronize current data with Microsoft Outlook.
"CatalystWeb is ready to provide an invaluable service to the 25 million small businesses nationwide," said Chris Shipley, executive producer of DEMO. "Small businesses demand and deserve enterprise-grade software, and CatalystOffice's technology is meeting the challenge with the most economical business model on the market today. They are a valuable addition to DEMO 08."
CatalystWeb is exhibiting at DEMO 08 in Desert Springs, California from January 28-30 at station #11.
