CRM and ERP Business Suite Reduces Complexity and Integration Costs, Increases ROI; Early Adopter Community Tapped for Innovative Transformational User Experience
ORLANDO, Fla. — Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2010 — Aplicor, LLC, a global Cloud Based Business Software Company, today announced the beta launch of Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0, a comprehensive Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) business suite. Aplicor also announced the extension of the company’s Early Adopter Community (EAC) to partners. Developed in conjunction with user feedback from Aplicor’s EAC, Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0 is a significant departure from hard wired, manual, role based user interfaces to a dynamic and engaging end user experience. Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0 transforms the user experience by empowering the end-user to create short cuts and dynamic workspaces supported by business processes to more efficiently drive business results. The new product leverages Microsoft Silverlight technology to provide an extremely fast, highly interactive user experience on any device.
"The neat thing about Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0 is that it gives each user the flexibility to do a job in ways that make sense for them," said Denis Pombriant, managing principal of Beagle Research. "Older solutions aim at optimizing for the group, with the hope that the individual can be average," he said. "In contrast, Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0 gives every user the chance to be a super star. In this way it can lift the performance of the whole group."
Aplicor Early Adopter Community: Software Development Gets Social
Traditionally, software has been developed internally and then pushed out to market with little or no communication with the user community during the development process, resulting in overly rigid and complicated user interfaces. Recently launched in Q3 this year, the Aplicor EAC is a collaborative program, which taps into the power of the community—dramatically changing and expanding, in real-time, the development of Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0.
"We’ve been working closely with Aplicor for the last few months as part of their EAC, and I have been impressed with how they have listened and incorporated our feedback into Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0—making the end product a real game changer," said Steve Florek, managing director IT, SecureAlert. "Historically, we’ve had various custom and point applications, but it was becoming increasingly complex. We’ve made the strategic decision to replace all business applications with Aplicor’s Cloud Suite 7.0, which will dramatically reduce the complexity and costs, and increase our bottom line."

The CRM software application benefits companies by improving the overall customer experience, increasing sales win rates, growing customer satisfaction and increasing marketing effectiveness. The ERP software application automates accounting and back-office processes in order to achieve labor efficiencies, decrease cycle times and provide management with real-time enterprise information visibility.
The combined CRM front office with ERP back office functionality delivers a single, seamless customer centric business management system. This enables a holistic view of the customer relationship and consolidates front office and back office information for complete real-time business performance visibility.
"As we see the evolution of applications from tools to store transactions to information resources to help individuals be more productive, usability is key," said Rebecca Wettemann, vice president, Nucleus Research. "Aplicor provides the ease of access of a cloud application with a user interface that enables users to view the application in the way that suits them best, driving greater adoption and productivity."
"As the Cloud continues to become mission-critical, more organizations are looking for a solution suite to run their business, which will allow them to bypass the complexities of managing and deploying multiple point solutions," said Scott Creighton, CEO, Aplicor. "With Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0, organizations not only have a solution that ties their front office and back office capabilities seamlessly together, but one that has been designed from the beginning with feedback from users—delivering a user experience based on real-world business processes."
Aplicor will be demonstrating Aplicor Cloud Suite 7.0 at Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2010 in Orlando, FL from October 18-21 at booth number 222.
