About Host in Ireland
Host in Ireland, winner of the Datacloud Europe 2016 award for Innovative Data Center Location, is an industry-led marketing initiative that provides timely and accurate information about Ireland’s digital asset hosting ecosystem at all times including demonstrating why Ireland is more cost-effective, efficient, reliable, secure and accessible than most other regions across the EU. There’s a reason companies like Microsoft, Zendesk, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Adobe and beyond have sought to host their solutions in as well as to/from Ireland. Many of these reasons are immediately realized due to access to affordable power, redundant network and bandwidth capacity along with a variety of data center providers that offer an array of services sustained by the “5 Ps”: Policy, People, Pedigree, Pipes, and Power. On top of that is a very attractive business management structure, implemented by Ireland, which is keenly interested to bring new businesses into the market. Ireland supports this initiative through its pro-business approach, attractive corporate tax and fiscal structures, common law based legal system, continued investment in off-Island fiber cables to the U.S. and Europe, financial support for data center energy efficiency, and access to a skilled native English-speaking workforce – ensuring data asset compliance for companies large and small.

NEW YORK – Ubersmith, an INAP (NASDAQ: INAP) company and a global leader in subscription business management software, today reported another year of progress, including the addition of new customers in 2017 such as Challenger Broadband, Cytranet, Dikaio Design, Element Critical, Evocative, Micro Logic, Micron21, Nodes Direct, ServOnDemand and Voxtell. Demonstrating global demand for Ubersmith’s product, the new customers are based in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, the U.K., United Arab Emirates, China, South Korea and Australia.

Ubersmith is defining a new category called ‘subscription business management’ where customers have a single software suite for billing and related functionality. That is enhanced with Ubersmith’s partner network that delivers complementary payment processing, technologies and services.


“Companies everywhere are looking for ways to transition from traditional billing to recurring billing models that are often based on consumption, and Ubersmith is delivering a product which excels at these types of billing for SaaS companies, service providers and enterprises of all sizes,” said Kurt Daniel, president of Ubersmith. “Now, we’ve got in place new features and an expanded ecosystem of partners with complementary technologies and services that companies anywhere in the world can leverage.”

Product Enhancement
In terms of product development, Ubersmith introduced a hosted version of its software suite so that customers have the convenience of accessing the software without having to install and maintain it on-premises, which reduces their operating costs. This provides customers the option to use either the hosted version or their own version of Ubersmith software on-premises in their data center.

Additional product features added during the year include: an advanced usage-based billing framework; enhanced SureTax integration; self-service trial and installation of Ubersmith’s software suite; an enhanced user interface; and enhanced support for smartphones and tablets. The team also added a new testing partner to complement internal testing of future releases.

Business Expansion

With additional hires in sales, product marketing and business development to support customers and partners, the company grew and moved to a larger headquarters office in midtown New York City next to Bryant Park.

Ubersmith also participated in industry events, including 451 Research Group’s Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit, HostingCon, IMN Data Center & Cloud Services Forum and, for the first time, sponsored WHD.global in Germany and Cloud Expo Asia in Singapore.
