Azaleos Bundles Services
Seattle-based Azaleos is taking aim at shrinking corporate capital expenditure budgets, saying this morning that it has rolled out what it calls an "All-In-One" financing option that combines hardware, the firm's managed services, and deployment and migration into a single monthly subscription. The firm, which offers management of Microsoft Exchange email servers, said the new pricing plan is targeted at helping customers "weather the economic downturn." Azaleos said the program is part of an effort by ePlus Group, which provides equipment leasing services to companies. According to Azaleos, the new financing can help enterprises migrate to Microsoft Exchange 2007--which requires new 64-bit hardware and significant attached storage. The company also pointed out the monthly subscription avoid issues with capital expenditure freezes and reductions. Azaleos is venture backed by Ignition Partners and Second Avenue Partners.
