ST. LOUIS, MO (March 15, 2006) - Connectria Corporation today announced that it is providing a custom Software as a Service (SaaS) Managed Hosting solution to VQS. This solution enables VQS to deliver its industry-leading VisionEPMT software as an Application Service Provider. VisionEPMT (Empowered Program Management) is a comprehensive program management solution that integrates tracking and forecasting schedules, with data and electronic document storage for goal-centric geographically distributed work scopes. This SaaS solution enables VQS's customers to rapidly implement the VisionEPMT software without internal IT support under a cost-effective monthly subscription model, enabling end users to securely access the VisionEPMT software 24/7 via the Internet.

Connectria's custom SaaS Managed Hosting solution allowed VQS to immediately begin selling its VisionEPMT software to a broader market, without having to build or run a complex technology infrastructure or 24/7 support organization. A key component of Connectria's custom SaaS Managed Hosting solution was a flat monthly pricing model that allowed VQS to accurately budget its costs and build a profitable business model for its SaaS offering. Connectria's ability to completely tailor its support services to meet VQS's unique requirements was another key component in VQS's successful SaaS offering.

As part of the Software as a Service (SaaS) implementation, Connectria's engineers provided comprehensive configuration and integration support to assist VQS during its launch, allowing VQS to greatly minimize its risk.
