ST. LOUIS (May 9, 2013) – Demand Management Inc., a leading global resource for supply chain management solutions, has announced the availability of the Demand Solutions platform as a software as a service (SaaS) offering. This cloud-based release includes all the same functionality as the on-premises Demand Solutions platform, but is hosted remotely and available on a subscription basis.
Demand Management’s announcement comes at a time when more and more software providers are allowing customers to access their solutions in the cloud. By offering its integrated supply chain planning suite on a subscription basis, Demand Management enables companies to get up and running on the platform as quickly and affordably as possible.
“Companies of all sizes are expressing a desire to get away from building complex IT infrastructures and hiring large IT teams to maintain them,” says Bill Harrison, president of Demand Management. “Making Demand Solutions available as a SaaS offering removes a barrier to entry for companies that need a powerful supply chain planning solution but don’t want to devote the resources to implementing it in-house. They can now simply pay a set fee per user per month, and they’ll automatically benefit from each future upgrade to the product.”
To deliver the utmost reliability to customers, Demand Management is hosting its cloud version on the Windows Azure cloud platform.
“We now offer our customers three different configurations of Demand Solutions to meet their supply chain planning needs and fit their technology infrastructure,” Harrison concludes. “As always, we offer the customized training our clients need to get the most out of our solutions. Anyone interested in going live quickly with a robust supply chain planning solution should contact us to subscribe.”
