John Luis Maldonado, founder of PartnerLocator, today announced that Standing Cloud, a leading provider of cloud application marketplace and management solutions, became the third Technology Vendor to upgrade their account to a Connected Listing on PartnerLocator.
As a Connected Vendor, Standing Cloud will benefit from the following features:

• An enhanced priority listing with company name, summary, four web links and up to 10 category tags for greater visibility in user searches.

"At Standing Cloud, we've built a cloud application marketplace and management platform that makes it easy to deploy, manage and distribute applications in the cloud," said Therese Wells, head of marketing and communications for Standing Cloud. "PartnerLocator looks like an excellent way for us to connect -- in real time -- to qualified solutions and hosting providers seeking a cloud marketplace partner, ISVs looking for the easiest way to distribute applications in the cloud, and managed service providers who may want to jump start their cloud business without making massive investments in hardware or infrastructure."
"Our leading-edge 'Connected' directory makes it easy for users to research their technology options before making any partnering, planning or purchasing decisions," said Maldonado, founder and CEO of the innovative Miami-based company. "Our goal is to accelerate and simplify the decision-making process by offering a valued service that’s fast, convenient, comprehensive and free."
To help technology vendors maximize their impact through its leading-edge 'Connected' directory, PartnerLocator is offering a no-cost Connected Vendor listing to qualified vendors for the remainder of 2013, a $1,200 value.
