Business SaaS Solution Sets Sights on Apple Users

PALO ALTO, CA — (MARKET WIRE) — 03/29/2006 — Norada Corporation, the
provider of the Solve360 communicating and collaborating Web solution for
small business, announced today that the service is now available to
Macintosh users using the Apple-native Safari browser.

“Following the release of Safari 2.0 for OS 10.4 and 1.3 for OS 10.3, we
set to work optimizing the service so that all the features — email, team
scheduling, contact management and CRM tools, personal and group file
sharing — work as seamlessly in the Mac environment as in the Windows
world,” says Norada CEO Steve Ireland.

“Whether a small business is Mac-based or uses a mix of Macs and PCs, with
Solve360 users can get a full suite of proven Web-based
productivity-enhancing services today, with none of the IT headaches
associated with desktop or server-based solutions,” adds Ireland. “While
products such as Microsoft Office Live are still in beta, Solve360 is being
used all day, every day, by thousands of small business customers around
the world. And now Mac users can reap all the productivity and cost
benefits of the Software as a Service (SaaS) revolution.”

“As a startup with a mix of Macs and PCs in the office, Solve360 meets all
of our email, collaboration, file sharing and online archiving needs,” says
Ryan Keating, VP Finance of WisdomArk, a VC-funded internet startup based
in Mountain View, California. “We’re 12 people today, with plans to grow
aggressively in the future. Getting everyone in the office on the same Web
service lets us focus on building our business instead of building an IT

Ireland added that new Solve360 features due for release in the next
quarter — integrated invoicing tools and enhanced, archivable instant
messaging — have been built in response to customer requests to continue
extending the platform. “On the invoicing and accounting fronts, Mac shops
are effectively shut out of using products such as Intuit’s QuickBooks
Online or Sage’s Act for Web because they don’t support the Apple OS, much
less Safari specifically,” says Ireland. “We’re keenly aware of the needs
of our small business customers. With more than 30 percent of our customers
having Macs in the office, we know that everything we’re doing has to be
designed to work with OS X and Safari.”
