The Wave2 Publishing Platform (W2PP), combined with Adobe’s InDesign Server, forms the heart of the Wave2 range of products. Additional individual modules then integrate with the W2PP to deliver specific business solutions. Wave2 customers are typically newspaper and magazine publishers, advertising agencies, marketers and print production companies who use the software to quickly deploy powerful automated document building solutions. All user interfaces are browser based and the AdPortal B2B and B2C offerings which are centered on self-service advertising also incorporate a transactional payment element.
Wave2 therefore needed to work with a partner who could offer security, scalability and the high availability required by such demanding customers. After reviewing their own requirements Wave2 also determined that it was of key importance to select an infrastructure partner with the right profile and capability in order for them to compete and sell more effectively. Partnering with Claranet has enabled Wave2 to offer their customers the necessary security and confidence required when deciding to out-source traditional internal IT functions.
Following their agreement with Claranet, Wave2 customers now benefit from:
- Reduced dependence on internal IT skills
- Secure and high availability environments
- Lower overall IT infrastructure costs
- Secure transactional payment environment in PCI-DSS compliant data centre
- A future-proof IT infrastructure environment
- Increased flexibility
- Ability to scale quickly and to react to market changes
- Ability to benefit from new technologies much more quickly
Wave2 Media Solutions, the UK-based software specialists, reached an agreement with managed infrastructure services specialist Claranet, to provide a hosted platform for Wave2’s range of solutions for the automated generation of documents and allowing them to provide end-to-end solutions for their customers and partners.
The partnership with Claranet enables Wave2 to further extend the range of services it can offer to both new and existing clients. Many organisations are now looking for more cost effective ways in which to deliver services to their customers, and the external hosting of systems helps meet this objective. The modern range of services offered by Claranet gives our customers the necessary comfort and security that is needed when working with a hosting partner. On behalf of our customers, we need to ensure that system availability is at its absolute maximum.Andrew Haggarty - Sales Director - Wave2 Media Solutions Ltd
