LongJump Partners with Jamcracker to Deliver On-Demand Applications to International SMB Audience

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Friday, April 25, 2008 — Today at the Web 2.0 Conference and Expo, LongJump, a platform for highly customizable, interconnected on-demand business applications, announced a partnership with Jamcracker, the on-demand services delivery company.  As part of the partnership agreement, LongJump will offer its suite of on-demand applications through the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network (JSDN).  LongJump’s applications will be available to Jamcracker’s global ecosystem of IT and communication service providers, resellers and consultants, who can quickly provision the on-demand applications as a value-added service to their small- and medium-sized business (SMB) customers. 

As part of LongJump’s distribution strategy, Jamcracker will expand LongJump’s awareness and reach internationally to telecom providers and the service provider channels that are increasingly seeking turnkey SaaS solutions to offer to their existing SMB customer base.  SMBs accounted for about one-third of the approximately $12.7 billion spent by North American and according to Saugatuck Technology, a Westport, Conn.-based research firm, SMB adoption of SaaS applications rose from 9% in 2006 to 27% in 2007.

“We are pleased to add the LongJump SaaS development platform and its suite of value added business applications to the Jamcracker Service Delivery Network,” said Steve Crawford, vice president of marketing at Jamcracker.  “LongJump provides the most commonly requested sales and marketing applications, is highly customizable, and can scale as a business grows.  It is a welcome addition to our ecosystem of on-demand services.”

“Jamcracker’s growing on-demand distribution network is at the forefront of SaaS service delivery,” noted Pankaj Malviya, LongJump’s founder and CEO.  “This partnership places LongJump prominently within SaaS marketplaces and brings the LongJump platform and applications within reach of more business everywhere. Using LongJump, businesses and teams can share information, collaborating more efficiently and productively leading to increased revenues.”

LongJump’s suite of interconnected applications span core business functions, which provide better integration and similar functionality to larger application providers but at a more affordable price while still having the ability to scale as a business grows. Most recently, LongJump has extended its suite with powerful components such as the industry’s first cloud Database-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Workflow-as-a Service capabilities.  Workflow automation is important to business because organizing and sequencing how work gets done can accelerate communication and collaboration between team members, across company departments and between suppliers and partners.  Up until now, this powerful type of functionality has been previously cost prohibitive to establish, deploy, and maintain.
