(Gawkwire.com) Applied Innovations is proud to announce that SmarterTools has donated $400,000 of software to its WebsiteSpark offering, giving small businesses participating in the Microsoft-sponsored program the business tools they need to succeed.
“We wanted to ensure our sponsored WebsiteSpark businesses would be successful and offer not only a fully managed, highly available virtual dedicated server but all of the components for a complete Web hosting solution. Pairing the SmarterBundle from SmarterTools with the Microsoft Web Platform provided on our managed virtual dedicated server platform allows us to meet that need,” said Jess Coburn, founder and CEO of Applied Innovations.
Applied Innovations recently partnered with Microsoft Corp. to provide a year of managed Windows VPS hosting to 500 sponsored Web development and design companies participating in the WebsiteSpark program. The new partnership with SmarterTools will provide each participant professional editions of the SmarterMail mail server, SmarterTrack customer service software, and SmarterStats Web log analytics and SEO software. The software bundle, also known as the SmarterBundle, is valued at $800 and is also distributed by partnered hosting companies with dedicated and VPS offerings.
“Applied Innovations is a longtime SmarterTools partner and we are excited that we could accommodate their request to help create an ideal environment for these small businesses to thrive,” said Tim Uzzanti, CEO of SmarterTools.
WebsiteSpark provides business development programs, tools and technologies to build sites and applications, as well as support and training programs to help ensure adoption and success. For more information on the program, visit http://www.appliedi.net/websitespark.
