NASHVILLE . TMW Systems launched TMW Managed Services, a new offering it said will reduce IT infrastructure investments, ensure scalability and optimize scarce resource by providing “enterprise-class application hosting and systems management to reduce the complexity of software implementations and project startups, improve application availability, reliability and scalability, and lower the capital cost of major software implementations.” The announcement came today at the TMW users’ conference being held here this week.
The company noted that as TMW “already deploys comprehensive hosting services to fully manage back-end and customer-facing operations for many of its software customers” and that today’s announcement “formalizes those services for marketing and sales purposes.”
“Transportation service providers are re-examining core competencies and looking for ways to further reduce information technology costs in already lean organizations, while maintaining their competitiveness,” said Scott Vanselous, vp & gm. “TMW Managed Services provides enterprise-class application hosting and management services at an affordable monthly fee.” Vanselous stated that with TMW’s fully managed hosting services, the total costs are both more visible and more manageable through clearly-defined service arrangements.
According to Vanselous, such managed services are ideal for organizations that want to deploy new applications quickly, without managing the hurdles of hardware procurement, infrastructure upgrades, or IT staff expansion while aligning with corporate IT department policies. They can also provide business continuity assurance and co-location capabilities, he added.
