Quantum Art announces a new market focus on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provisioning of its proven .NET Web CMS Platform.
Quantum Art designs, develops and manages on-demand business solutions utilizing its SaaS CMS platform. Trends in the industry reveal a growing interest in what Quantum Art previously marketed as QP7.Subscribe — a Software-as-a-Service version of QP7, their .NET-based web content management solution. Organizations are increasingly prepared to trust their vital processes and data to SaaS because of this provisioning models advantages. These include a significantly lower up-front capital cost, instant scalability, and multi-tenant efficiencies.
“There are thousands of CMS companies, but only dozens of them that are enterprise-class with a mid-market price, and only three of those are SaaS. We are the only one of those three that would be classified as a Platform (vs. a Product) by the leading industry analyst,” writes Mark McGee, the Managing Director of Global Operations at Quantum Art.
The Real Story Group classifies both of Quantum Art’s competitors in the SaaS CMS space as “Mid-Range Products,” whereas Quantum Art’s CMS would be classified as a “Mid-Range Platform” according to their criteriaand is unique in that category because of the SaaS provisioning model.
According to John Austin of The CMS Insider’s Blog, a platform is a “better fit” for organizations with complex needs than a productespecially if they expect the solution to have a long life-cycle. In a ‘productized’ CMS, many important decisions have been made in advance to simplify the solution design process, eliminating the crucial flexibility that a platform like Quantum Art’s can provide.
Since 2005, Cities, Counties, NPOs, and businesses have been running public and private sites and web applications on QP7.Subscribe, one of the earliest SaaS CMS options in the market.
Recently, Goodwill Industries of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin Counties launched a new site on the Quantum Art SaaS Platform. Features include an interactive donation and store locator, links to the eBay and Amazon sites, a donation module, a job board and more — helping the community with online tools.
