While Navision has done a respectable job of establishing its U.S. network, it has been facing a fierce challenge from domestic competitors like Great Plains, Epicor Software, and Solomon Software. Moreover, it is going to be challenged with combining its country-specific variants of applications into a single-code, global product in order to be selected as a global strategic partner of a centrally run global organization.

Will Solomon Finally Satisfy Great Plains’ Insatiable Appetite?


Great Plains announced it intends to significantly expand its mid market e-business community through the acquisition of Solomon Software, its direct competitor. The combined company will have more than 130,000 customers, 2,200 team members and a worldwide network of 2,000 channel partners.

Moreover, the company will have to revise its sales strategy of how to optimize the sales of two product lines with fairly overlapping functionality and avoid a likely internal competition. Not to mention the need of showing 'one face' to customers. Finally, Great Plains can expect growing pains in merging disparate product lines and training the newly extended large affiliate channel.

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters


It appears that several of Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) Solomon's truly differentiating traits, which could not have been easily or quickly replicated by its seemingly more robust brethren products within the MBS division, will have been a good enough reason for Microsoft to continue to bolster the product rather than to consider any other less popular options (e.g., stabilization and replacement) to offer to Solomon's loyal customer base and resellers, some of which will have even feared the possibility.

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Two: Market Impact


MBS Solomon, due to its distinct differentiators and weaknesses has been blessed in disguise with possibly the most distinct niche and the least overlap (gray area) with the other MBS ERP products (i.e., MBS Great Plains, MBS Navision, and MBS Axapta).

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Three: Product Differentiators


Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the purest in terms of a standard Microsoft technology stack, and without any proprietary additions. Furthermore, its sharp focus solely on Microsoft technology from ground up, coined in ''the power of one'' motto (one OS platform - Windows XP/NT/2000, one database platform - MS SQL Server, one development environment - MS Visual Basic, etc.), also presents an attractive, risk-adverse option for penny-pinching mid-market customers. Solomon IV has consequently been very competitive in speed of implementation, feasibility of customization, total cost of ownership (TCO), and price/performance ratio.
