Solar VTG, a platinum Parallels partner, will add Smart Online's Onebiz suite of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications to its product platform. Designed for small business use, the Onebiz applications include business productivity software, such as accounting, human resources, customer relationship management, and sales force automation tools.

Parallels, formerly Swsoft, offers virtualization and automation software that optimizes computing for consumers, businesses, and service providers. Solar VTG leverages Parallels' virtualization and automation software to deliver a fully automated service platform. Smart Online's private-label SaaS applications are designed to help its corporate partners better reach the small business community.

"The Onebiz suite of SaaS applications is a natural fit for hosting providers looking for additional revenue or added customer value without the high cost, maintenance or upfront investment required to purchase or develop it themselves," David Colburn, CEO of Smart Online, said in a statement. "By partnering with Parallels, hosting providers have easy access to a scalable, affordable and fully customizable SaaS solution."
