"PEM draws on the expertise of SWsoft’s OPEN FUSION initiative to bridge the gap between legacy and modern hosting systems with automation solutions for both SWsoft and non-SWsoft services."

"Several features in PEM 2.6, such as the ability to customize the language packs, were key factors in our decision to purchase PEM for our Spanish speaking audience," said Carlos Antolinez, managing director, Ibercom.
