Microsoft-based hosting service to debut in Japan on Ensim platform

Sunnyvale, Calif. and Tokyo, Japan – June 20, 2006 – Ensim Corporation, the leading supplier of service enablement and automation software for Hosted IP and application services, and its system integrator partner, Fivefront Corporation today announced that PSC, Inc. has selected Ensim Unify as its platform of choice to be the first to deliver and promote hosting services for small and medium-sized businesses in Japan using a suite of Microsoft products. A new service, P-BERRY is the first in Japan to offer Hosted Messaging & Collaboration (HMC) v3.5-based hosting services including messaging, collaboration and full Outlook functionality supporting Windows mobile device.

“Small and medium-sized businesses want access to the same types of IP and application services that large enterprises enjoy today, but the investment and resources required to manage those services have traditionally been out of their reach,” said Daiji Okano, Vice President, Sales at PSC. “With Ensim Unify, we can make this a reality for our customers. We’ll be able to provide SMBs with powerful, yet easy-to-use mobile and desktop capabilities.”

Ensim Unify is the industry’s first widely deployed and proven service delivery platform. Developed in close collaboration with Microsoft, it enables service providers to centrally create, control and deliver hosted IP and application services. Pre-integrated and packaged with over fifteen IP and application services, the Unify platform allows revenue-generating hosted services to be rapidly delivered, bundled and differentiated at lower cost and with unmatched reliability, flexibility and speed.

 

“PSC is selecting the right combination of platform and services to present powerful value-added, differentiated offerings to customers,” said Noboru Sugiyama, Director of Communication Sector at Microsoft Japan K.K. “The unique P-BERRY service gives customers the applications they need most, and the Ensim Unify platform makes it easy for both PSC and customers to manage their services.”

P-BERRY service allows customers to use Exchange Server 2003 functionality without requiring technical expertise to manage the server. It also solves issues on asset and security management by providing security options. PSC will add more ASP services on P-BERRY that meet customer needs and satisfaction through ASP-DIRECT.NET.

“PSC has demonstrated its leadership and understanding of the industry by offering the most popular hosted services for small and medium-sized businesses,” said David Wippich, President and CEO of Ensim. “We are proud to help PSC create the framework for an advanced offering with Microsoft, with room to offer even more services as they grow.”

“Ensuring functionality, reliability and productivity for business communications systems is a critical issue for any size company,” said Hiroaki Nagare, CEO of Fivefront Corporation. “P-BERRY is a unique solution that enables customers to introduce an ideal and robust system that can be launched in a short period of time with low risk.
