Nasstar’s system will enable Pinnacle’s staff to access their computer and software applications over the internet rather than using an on-premise computer with locally installed software.
The three-year contract commences in March 2008 and covers subscriptions for over 150 of Pinnacle’s current staff. Nasstar’s services will be provided on a per user per month subscription basis.
Charles Black, Nasstar’s chief executive said: ‘We are delighted to have been appointed by Pinnacle. With large numbers of staff spread across over 30 offices, Nasstar’s cloud computing means that they can work from anywhere with access to their computer and company files over the internet. This approach removes the need for complex networking and data sharing technologies as well as removing the burden of installing and maintaining local computers which is both costly and time consuming.’
Nasstar’s service enables subscribers to do all of their computing in the ‘internet cloud’, with access to their desktop, files, applications and email over the internet rather than on-premise.
