Igloo Software Unveils “Solutions as a Service” Model at Digital Workplace Experience Conference 2017
New Solutions as a Service Model Provides Complete Portfolio of Services that Fully Support Organizations Throughout their Digital Transformation Journey
Chicago, IL – June 20, 2017 – Igloo Software, the leading provider of digital workplace solutions, today unveiled a groundbreaking “Solutions as a Service” approach for helping customers achieve new levels of productivity, innovation, and time to value throughout their digital transformation journey. The new model was unveiled today at the Digital Workplace Experience 2017 conference in Chicago, Illinois.
Forward-thinking organizations today are looking for ways to address pervasive challenges impacting communications, knowledge management, collaboration, and employee engagement and culture. Igloo’s new Solutions as a Service model provides those organizations with everything they need to do just that – software, services, support, training, and expertise conveniently wrapped up in an easy to deploy solution, significantly reducing time to launch and time to value for organizations. By providing a full portfolio of services that support customers through their digital transformation journey, organizations will be in the best position as they rollout, maintain, and grow the value of their digital workplace across the enterprise.
“Solutions as a Service is the next evolution of Software as a Service (SaaS) since we are delivering all elements required for success beyond just the software, including solution templates, consulting, implementation services, training, benchmarking and engagement KPI’s, launch and engagement support, and governance guidance,” explains Dan Latendre, Founder & CEO, Igloo Software. “There was always this gap in the market between what vendors provided and what clients expected (and rightfully needed) to be successful. While we’ve always gone the extra mile to help our clients, this latest Solutions as a Service approach is a huge leap forward for us, our clients, and the industry.”
Moving forward, all of Igloo’s Digital Workplace solutions will be delivered leveraging this Solutions as a Service model.
