Mamut reveals SaaS service for Irish SMEs

26 Nov 2009

European business software provider Mamut has unveiled new products that will be available for Irish SMEs via the internet on a subscription basis.

The move was made possible through an agreement with The Business Software Centre (TBSC), a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) partner, to allow download of the products through their Rentsoft™ service.

Products including Mamut Enterprise, Mamut Accounting, Mamut Office and Mamut CRM & Sales Start will be offered on a subscription basis through Rentsoft and is available to Irish customers immediately.

Products to download

Applications offered as downloadable products through Rentsoft use TBSC’s protection technology, TBSC Rental Bridge. Once downloaded, the products will be fully functional as long as the customer maintains the monthly subscription payments. Subscriptions services are offered on a pay-as-you-go basis and include free usage for the first month. Prices thereafter will start at €16.96 (incl VAT) per month.

“Mamut has recently launched Mamut One, an all-inclusive Software + Services offering across Ireland to help SMEs boost agility and business efficiency,” Luke Buckley, Irish country manager for Mamut explained.

“In order to cater to customers’ various requirements and requests, we believe the Rentsoft service will meet the preference for traditional installation, while combining it with an untraditional method of payment. Rentsoft is one of the solutions that enable us to offer our customers the best of both worlds – local installation for businesses’ critical data with additional functionality available as a service over the internet.

“We know that cash flow is a key concern for SMEs right now, but we also know that having the best solution is critical to success. By teaming up with Rentsoft we can satisfy both needs,” Buckley said.
