Vovici Corporation Chooses SAVVIS for Global SaaS Business Expansion

Vovici and SAVVIS Team Up

SAVVIS announced a multi-million dollar agreement with Vovici Corporation, the leading provider of Enterprise Feedback Management (EFM).

Under terms of the three year agreement, Vovici will relocate and consolidate their U.S. based IT infrastructure into a single SAVVIS data center located near Washington, D.C. Vovici will then expand globally by deploying their software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model, using SAVVIS' managed IT infrastructure in data centers in the UK with future plans for expansion to Singapore.

Vovici will deploy their web-based business services on SAVVIS' managed IT infrastructure services platform, featuring SAVVIS' global IP network, SAVVIS virtualized utility compute and storage services, and managed security. SAVVIS' industry leading services will provide Vovici customers with unmatched security, reliability and performance in comparison to other survey solutions on the market.

"SAVVIS has allowed us to expand our business globally while also consolidating our US IT infrastructure and reducing our costs," said Rod Morris, Senior Vice President, Account Management and Operations, Vovici. "Their virtualized IT infrastructure perfectly complements our software-as-a-service delivery model, and provides the flexibility and security required for a business, like ours, that is experiencing rapid global growth."

SAVVIS' managed IT infrastructure enables Vovici to remove the burden of global IT management while reducing both ownership and operating costs. This allows Vovici's internal IT teams to concentrate on its core business and applications rather than on the business of IT infrastructure management. SAVVIS' managed solutions also offer robust storage and recovery abilities as well as a highly scalable environment to accommodate Vovici's growth. Fifty-eight percent of the U.S. Fortune 500 currently rely on the strategic value of Vovici's consistent feedback strategy, and this agreement will deliver a flexible IT infrastructure to support the company's continued global expansion.

"SAVVIS IT Utility Services leverage all the performance benefits of virtualization and serves as the perfect IT infrastructure platform to underpin SaaS applications," said James Whitemore, Chief Marketing Officer of SAVVIS. "We look forward to working with Vovici as a trusted IT services partner as they grow their business globally."
