May 16, 2011 – FRAMINGHAM, Massachusetts — PeopleCube, provider of intelligent workplace management technology, today announced the availability of Workspace Manager On-Demand. Workspace Manager provides simple, visual-based room and desk scheduling for organizations of all sizes. By hosting the web-based Workspace Manager application, PeopleCube makes it possible for customers to quickly and easily use and maintain Workspace Manager with low startup costs and no ongoing maintenance or reliance on IT.
“Workspace Manager On-Demand’s low cost model enables organizations to benefit from a more efficient resource scheduling system without significant capital investment—a welcome boon to organizations under ever-increasing pressure to reduce spending,” said John T. Anderson, president and CEO of PeopleCube. “Offering an additional cost-effective on-demand software solution enables PeopleCube to build on the sustained growth of our SaaS business, while simultaneously offering on-demand advantages to existing Workspace Manager customers.”
The hosted model employed for Workspace Manager follows the latest trend in software deployment and is typically the most efficient way to implement a new application, primarily because it makes technical training unnecessary and significantly reduces the cost of implementing new software. Workspace Manager On-Demand provides greater scaling flexibility and data security, while eliminating hidden costs such as hardware, annual maintenance fees, and internal support personnel. Accordingly, it provides a faster ROI and reduces the total cost of ownership.
“Lower costs during the first two years of SaaS and quicker deployment times are very enticing for companies with tight budgets and urgent software needs,” said Robert P. Desisto, vice president and distinguished analyst for Gartner Research. “SaaS-delivered solutions can also provide access to innovation without the pain of traditional upgrade programs.”
