Pronto signs partnership with IBM to offer cloud integration services to the mid-market

• IBM WebSphere Cast Iron provides enhanced third party connectivity to Pronto Xi • Pronto is building a robust API ‘connector economy’ for popular cloud and mobile business apps

15 March 2016: Australian technology company, Pronto Software, today announces an expansion of its partnership with IBM, offering customers the ability to rapidly and cost effectively integrate popular third-party business apps and systems with the flagship Pronto Xi ERP and Business Analytics platform.

Using Pronto Connect, Pronto’s web services architecture engine, IBM WebSphere Cast Iron allows Pronto to offer seamless cloud integration and commercialise standard connectors for fast implementations.

This partnership follows the recent reveal of the new Pronto Xi web interface. It is part of the new Pronto Xi design for a modern, web-based and connected enterprise.

The new integration of Cast Iron with Pronto Xi results in a variety of benefits for Pronto Software customers, including: • Enhanced flexibility through faster integration with third-party cloud, mobile, SaaS, and on-premise applications such as (eg Salesforce, Magento, eBay etc) • Streamlined business processes through a highly connected ERP and Business Intelligence infrastructure • Rapid deployment, cutting out the need for significant development timeframes and costs involved with developing custom coded APIs and middleware

Further, the partnership allows the Pronto support team to have full, end-to-end visibility of their clients’ business management ecosystems, including third party applications, allowing diagnosis of any issues more rapidly and simply.

Chad Gates, Chief Operating Officer, Pronto Software, said: “Our vision is to deliver tools to enable a modern, web-based, connected enterprise. Customers want a singular interface for all of their business information and Pronto Connect provides the capability to do that efficiently.

“The WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud integration features a pre-configured architecture allowing us to create new API connectors for Pronto Xi quickly and simply. This offers a significant cost saving and productivity gain when compared to the more traditional approach of custom coding.”
