Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) July 5, 2006 — Atlassian Software Systems today announced that value added reseller (VAR) Pix Software GmbH has sold more than 150 software licenses of Atlassian JIRA, the professional issue tracker, and Atlassian Confluence, the enterprise wiki. This milestone makes Pix Software one of Atlassian’s fastest growing VARs in Europe and attests to the success of Atlassian’s new Partner Program.
“Pix Software has done a great job of providing services and support to their customers,” said William Anderson, director of the Atlassian Partner Program. “Now that Confluence has been fully internationalised, I expect it to be localised and distributed more and more by companies like Pix.”
As a value added reseller, Pix Software offers additional services for deep customisation and integration of JIRA and Confluence to their customers. Pix Software helps companies take full advantage of the J2EE architecture, SOAP APIs, and XML-RPC of the Atlassian products by building customisations and plugins.
“Atlassian’s software is in high demand because it’s thoroughly customisable for different workflows and users,” said Arne Schirmacher, CEO at Pix Software. “Atlassian has done a fantastic job of keeping things simple, from the software’s user interface design to its pricing. That in turn makes our job of working with clients and deploying software that much faster and easier.”
With the growing need for sharing and managing information better, Atlassian’s products have been adopted into just about every business niche, and today over 4,000 organisations in more than 60 countries rely on JIRA and Confluence. Both products are being used across all industries including corporate, high tech, government, non-profit, telco, gaming, services, and more. Atlassian’s Java-based products are “lightweight,” easy to deploy, and extremely flexible, making them easy for value added resellers and integrators to deploy and customise for their respective customers. Atlassian’s award-winning products can be up and running in minutes in nearly every application environment.
JIRA is a web-based application providing an accessible and agile issue-tracking platform that is highly usable by both technical and business users alike. Confluence is a pragmatic, practical knowledge management solution that combines the simplicity of a wiki with the powerful features enterprises demand. Both applications enjoy additional support from the active Atlassian Developer Network that has contributed scores of plugins to extend each application’s functionality.
