San Francisco — September 12, 2005 — Ketera, a provider of on demand spend management solutions, and salesforce.com, a provider of on demand customer relationship management (CRM), today announced the introduction of Ketera's suite of on demand Spend Management solutions for AppExchange.
The availability of an integrated suite of Spend Management solutions on AppExchange means that salesforce.com users can now have capabilities in contract management, order management, procurement, sourcing and spend analysis integrated with their salesforce.com CRM environment.
Built on salesforce.com's Appforce on-demand platform, Ketera Spend Management solutions for AppExchange are available immediately for preview in the AppExchange, and will be generally available at the same time as the Salesforce Winter '06 release.
Ketera Spend Management solutions for AppExchange are some of 70 launch applications that are available through AppExchange, salesforce.com's new on-demand application sharing service.
With AppExchange, salesforce.com said customers now have access to new applications that bring salesforce.com to their entire business, letting them manage and share all of their company information on-demand. Using AppExchange, companies have the ability to add new apps to their existing Salesforce deployments.
"We designed Appforce so that our partners like Ketera could port their solution to our on-demand platform and have it integrated with our CRM and use one data store, one sharing model and one consistent user interface," said Adam Gross, director of Product Marketing, salesforce.com. "Now, with AppExchange, our customers can browse, test-drive, and one-click install applications like Ketera's spend management solutions, and allow their users to switch between multiple on demand applications, all running in the same salesforce.com environment."
