A lively early morning visit to TMC by FrontRange Solutions' VP of Products, Kevin Smith, yielded some interesting news on the company's future plans, both short-term and long-term.
What piqued my interest the most was their announcement of the company's intention to bring to market a hosted CRM solution next year. The as-yet-unnamed (or, if there is a name, it wasn't mentioned) ASP-delivered CRM solution will follow the launch of a new hosted IT solution.
Such a solution will be a hot system to watch, and give competitors (Salesforce.com, Siebel) a long run for every bit of their money. FrontRange is practically a household name: this company counts fully half of the Fortune 500 as customers, and is one of the few companies able to boast very strong growth in its licensing revenue.
Additionally, the company will be announcing plans to expand into new product arenas. Watch this space for more FrontRange news down the road.
