London, UK; 30 April 2009 - Leading cloud consulting specialist, Saaspoint (http://www.saaspoint.com) has partnered with banking and insurance technology solutions provider Worldflow (http://worldflow.net) to offer the Financial Services sector unrivalled skills and market expertise in deploying Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.

Financial institutions are facing a challenging and uncertain future, with calls for tighter regulatory controls and more effective compliance. They need to control and reduce costs, and at the same time maintain revenues and find new markets and customers. While these pressures are not new to the sector, meeting them in the current economic climate has become an almost impossible task using traditional technology solutions.

Saaspoint and Worldflow believe that by working together they can use their in-depth knowledge of the financial marketplace to provide advice and solutions that can be delivered cost-effectively through the cloud.

Colm Mulcahy, Managing Director of Saaspoint, said: “Worldflow is the ideal choice for us to partner with in Financial Services. The company has a reputation as a no-nonsense and trusted supplier across the whole sector - their strength is their depth of business knowledge that comes from having worked in banking and insurance for 25 years. We are also very similar companies and share the same business values.”

Frank McCracken, VP Professional Services, Saaspoint, added: “When Tim Pullen, head of our consulting division, introduced us to Worldflow we looked at their technical skills as well as their vertical market business knowledge. Both are exceptional – they’re a natural fit for us. The combination of our world-leading expertise in SaaS technology and experience gained through delivering over 300 projects, alongside Worldflow’s presence in Financial Services will be a real asset for customers.”

Steve Jarrett, Worldflow’s Managing Director, commented: “We firmly believe that the SaaS environment will grow in the Financial Services arena to address a wide range of functional areas. The combination of Saaspoint and Worldflow creates a winning team able to deliver the best-in-SaaS solutions to our shared client base.”

SaaS technology provides a robust and scalable enterprise platform on which to develop industry-specific solutions. The low cost of entry combined with no infrastructure requirements makes a compelling argument. In addition, the ability to have a fully secure solution delivered via the Internet anywhere and to as many (or few) users as required, according to your business rules and complying with internal and external regulators, remains the basis for most business cases.
