Irish firm on Cloud9 as it thunders into UK market

14 Jun 2011

Cloud9 Software has embarked on a strategic move into the UK market with a suite of software-as-a-service (SaaS) ERP services.

Dublin-based Cloud9 Software has seen steady growth in sales of its ERP service, which requires no capital outlay, and is designed to be quickly deployed, intuitive and easy to use.

The service enables companies to grow more profitable businesses and outperform competitors while working off a lower cost base.

The Cloud9 service focuses on efficiencies for its clients relating to customers, finance, business process automation and staff productivity.

Cloud9 has recently become an IBM Business Partner through IBM’s ‘Partner World’ and is also a member of the ‘IBM Global Entrepreneur Program’.

“Our partnership with IBM is very important to us as our ‘smarter commerce’ philosophy is very much in line with IBM’s own strategy. To date, we have received great support and assistance in this venture from IBM and it is something which has stood to us,” says Louis de Courcy, sales director at Cloud9.
