Cloud Infrastructure Provider Routed Renews Agreement with Software Provider Ubersmith
December 28, 2018
Cloud infrastructure provider Routed has renewed a key agreement with software provider Ubersmith. Routed, which has offices in Cape Town and data centers in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa, was established in 2016. The company bills itself as “a true cloud service provider” and leverages VMware technology to deliver its services. Its secure and scalable cloud platform offers full or hybrid cloud hosting which it delivers to enterprise customers. The company also has an extensive network of partners, resellers and affiliates. Routed has signed an expansion agreement with Ubersmith and will further utilize the company’s subscription business management software.
Established in 2002, Ubersmith has head offices in New York, United States. The company, an INAP division, is a recognized leader in the subscription business management software arena. It provides an integrated and intuitive suite of options that provide a range of business support features. These include order management and usage-based billing functions alongside quoting and help desk ticketing solutions. Ubersmith’s solutions are available to companies of a range of sizes. The company was in the news at the beginning of 2018 for introducing a ‘Partner Program’ for business referrals. Routed utilizes Ubersmith’s offerings to bill large enterprises and smaller Managed Service Providers (MSPs). It also uses Ubersmith for customer payments.
“The Ubersmith software is ideal for the kind of subscription billing we do and the business model we have while integrating well with other applications and infrastructure, and remaining open for the future as needed,” explained Routed’s Managing Director, Andrew Cruise. “It makes our lives easier, helping our people in billing, customer service and sales work efficiently to handle the growth today and prepare for the scalability needs of our business tomorrow.”
“We are pleased to partner more deeply with Routed to help enable its cloud business and its ability to launch and support high-quality services with great efficiency,” added Ubersmith’s CEO Kurt Daniel. “We’re pleased to play a role in Routed’s success in South Africa and beyond as they take further advantage of the full range of turnkey usage-based billing, infrastructure and operations capabilities we offer to their organization and their customers.”
