We are NOT a 'Hosting' Company!

As an IBM Maximo® as a Service (MaaS) provider, oftentimes, I hear or see the term "hosting" being used as a reference to the services Projetech provides. Although, the error may seem benign, it is an extreme misnomer and injustice to what it is we really do!

-Julie Rampello, VP of Business Development, Projetech

SaaS is not Hosting is not SaaS

Understand the difference...

Our Maximo as a Service covers 7 of the 8 requirements

Simply 'hosting' Maximo only covers 3 of the 8 requirements

We are MUCH more than a 'hosting' company

That is like saying an iPhone is JUST a phone... When in reality it does SO much more

At Projetech, we take care of everything so you can focus on the success of your business
