Columbia Ultimate Partners with Zumasys, Leading Cloud Provider, to Offer Premier Hosting Services
At the forefront of technology and integrated solutions for the collections industry, Columbia Ultimate ("CUBS") is pleased to announce that all of the companies' platforms can be deployed in the cloud. By partnering with Zumasys the company now offers clients across all platforms and configurations a service model that has transformed IT infrastructure.

"Our products align with Zumasys to deliver reliability, accessibility and business value to our clients.
Paul Giobbi, president, co-founded Zumasys Inc. in 2000 with the intent of providing cloud computing solutions for businesses. The company has since grown to more than $25 million. "The partnership with Columbia Ultimate is the perfect fit," Giobbi said. "Columbia Ultimate has the vertical expertise with collections, application knowledge and a loyal customer base. We have ten years of experience in migrating MultiValue applications into the cloud, giving customers a smooth path that is high-touch."
Cloud computing offers Columbia Ultimate users unmatched cost efficiency, flexibility, and speed of service delivery. In an industry where businesses cannot afford to have their main application down and must deliver high confidence disaster recovery planning, looking at platforms that provide a hosting option is increasingly critical.
