Innography Launches Professional Services to Enhance SaaS Offerings
Innography, the premier IP Business Intelligence (IPBI) company, today announced its strategic Professional Services offering that will provide specialized consulting, education and ongoing support services to maximize long-term strategic benefits for current and future customers. The Professional Services group will act in tandem with engineering to supplement its successful SaaS (Software as a Service) product line.
According to Gartner Research, SaaS providers are moving beyond offering SaaS alone and embracing the "whole product" concept. This will extend the SaaS offering through the inclusion of services that will help customers optimize their business and technical operations once they have engaged in SaaS sourcing. Innography's full range of Professional Services delivers that "whole product" concept by focusing on ongoing customer enablement and support through the application of Innography's proprietary technology. The Services provided will be specifically designed to meet each customer's needs to ensure they gain the insights necessary to improve daily business functions.
"Our customers already recognize great value from their use of Innography and their interaction with our customer success team as evidenced by our exceptional customer renewal rate," said Tyron Stading, president and founder of Innography. "Building upon that success with a high caliber team dedicated to strategic consulting and tactical support via outsourcing is a natural next step for Innography and its diverse customer base."
Combining consulting expertise and industry best practices, the Innography Professional Services team delivers:
- Management Consulting Services: Provide IP Management best practices guidance and perspective
- Implementation Services: Apply expertise to specific objectives with emphasis on training, mentoring and enablement
- Outsourcing/Managed Services: Perform projects on behalf of the Customer
Innography has hired tech industry veteran Shauna Osborne to lead the new group. Osborne has over 25 years of experience in the Information Technology (IT) industry, and joins Innography from CA Technologies where she was VP of Service Assurance in the North Americas Practice Group.
"Innography has already proven its customer prowess with its impressive customer list and unprecedented growth," said Shauna Osborne, vice president of Professional Services at Innography. "Creating and implementing an in depth Professional Services program to accompany Innography's successful SaaS offering is a way to offer our customers a turnkey solution to help them gain better insights into their businesses."

- QuickStart for Innography Platform
- QuickStart for IntelliSort
