Canadian provider to offer top cloud services to business customers backed by platform from cloud service commerce leader

SAN FRANCISCO & TORONTO -- September 7, 2016 -- AppDirect, the leader in cloud service commerce, today announced that its platform is powering the new Rogers Business App Market that Rogers has launched for its Canadian small business customers. The Rogers Business App Market is a new SaaS marketplace that gives Rogers small business customers the ability to find, purchase and use the cloud services they need. The Business App Market offers today’s most popular business software, including Google Apps for Work and Microsoft Office 365, which will help businesses across Canada be more productive and efficient.

The Rogers Business App Market offers a range of features that deliver a best-in-class user experience. Customers can buy applications in the AppDirect-powered marketplace and pay for them on the same bill they use to pay for their other Rogers services. AppDirect’s platform makes it possible for customers to use one user ID and password to gain single sign-on access across all of their cloud services.

“Our partnership with Rogers is a major milestone for AppDirect and hits a personal note for me as well,” said Daniel Saks, President and Co-CEO of AppDirect. “As a native of Canada, I’ve seen firsthand how Canadian small businesses can struggle without access to technology, including my family’s 100-year-old furniture business that closed down during the Great Recession. By working with trusted providers like Rogers, Canadian businesses have easy access to the cloud solutions that can make them more productive and competitive, and help them thrive.”

Service providers, value-added resellers (VARs), independent software vendors (ISVs) and managed service providers (MSPs) interested in leveraging AppDirect’s platform to sell cloud services can find more information here.
