Customers range from small and medium sized business to Fortune 500 companies. The growth of this offering rivals that of some of the most popular proprietary products in the CRM industry.
The combination of the intelecrm Cloud Edition platform and Amazon EC2 provides a convenient, scalable virtual computing environment that breaks down walls and effectively provides limitless options for customization, integration, and growth. The application also reduces the price tag of a typical CRM deployment by eliminating up-front capital expenditures for hardware and software, while reducing ongoing IT infrastructure support expenses.
With intelecrm Cloud Edition, customers can leverage the advantages of cloud computing technology to instantly scale the application up or down, depending on their particular needs. Cloud computing allows IT departments to increase capacity or add capabilities 'on the fly' without investing in new hardware, personnel, or software by accessing virtual servers available over the Internet to handle computing needs. intelecrm is deployed in a secure, private environment, giving customers total control of their application and computing resources.
“From day one of our inception, Intelestream has always been a strong proponent of cloud computing. By teaming with Amazon we can fully realize the potential of the concept with our own application," comments Intelestream CEO Jason Green. “For our customers, anything is possible; as a customizable application in the cloud, intelecrm provides limitless flexibility.”

With the Amazon partnership, we can utilize their global cloud infrastructure to grow our international account base even further,” comments Ray Stoeckicht, VP of Consulting Services. “Customers will benefit from lower latency and faster performance due to the data residing locally.”
