Pegasus Systems, the only software-as-a-service advertising agency management provider in Australia, has chosen Azzurri Australia to deliver, manage and monitor network connections to its application.

Over 90 percent of New Zealand advertising agencies use the Pegasus application and demand from Australian agencies has been overwhelming with agencies such as McCann Worldgroup, Host, Droga 5, Momentum and The Works using the Pegasus application for integrated insight across finance, management, account service, production and media.

According to Managing Director Les Parry, Pegasus is the only Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) agency management provider and has experienced significant demand for 24 x 7 access to its complete finance, production and media management solution.

‘Large multi-site and small niche agencies appreciate the time and costs management benefits of our on-demand real-time technology and the freedom and insight it provides,’ said Parry. ‘We have spent over 20 years perfecting the application but need the appropriate network links, particularly for larger clients, to ensure a seamless and quick user experience.

‘Until Azzurri, we were struggling to find a single provider with experience, knowledge and expertise in the complexities of data centre services and the network connections for hosted applications.

‘Azzurri provides all the hardware, networking, communications, security and disaster recovery that makes the Pegasus application shine with fast response times and quick implementation.’ commented Parry.

Azzurri has eliminated the previous telco headaches and unresponsive support through managed data services, proactive monitoring and expert 24 x 7 support. Azzurri established a custom data centre facility hosting iSeries hardware and novated existing client data contracts into the Azzurri network fabric delivering end to end management and control. Azzurri’s management includes data centre backups, virtual local area network (VLAN), firewall security, and the delivery, management and monitoring of private data links for Pegasus customers.
