Ultimate Connection Seeking Its US Retail Connection Through Solomon Software Partners
Great Plains announced at the Solomon Partner Conference in August, a number of new product enhancements and/or product alliances for its recently acquired

navision tutor  company's successful partnership with Navision in the European market. We expect Ultimate Connection to pursue a number of alliances with other mid-market ERP vendors.

Epicor Delivers On Milestones, But Its Situation Remains Bleak


On November 21, Epicor introduced the immediate availability of Epicor eManufacturing, the next generation of its former Vantage manufacturing solution. However, the product launch seems to have taken a toll in the company’s financial performance. On October 31, Epicor announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2000. Net loss for the third quarter of 2000 was $12.3 million.

navision tutor  like Great Plains and Navision, which have decided to deliver their capabilities in manageable chunks, seems to have paid off even though their offerings are narrower than Epicor's. Further, Epicor's requirement of exclusivity for its resellers has caused its indirect channel to dwindle and has reduced its ability to attract new resellers. While exclusivity might create deeper commitment and expertise in its reseller channel in the long term, we believe that the timing of the initiative was poor. As a Read More

Facing A Selection? Try A Knowledge-Based Matchmaker Part 2: A Timesaving Solution


Since a 'one-size-fits-all' product is still not quite a viable possibility, almost every product can win provided a certain set of requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors/VARs is to pinpoint the right opportunity in this ongoing 'dating game'. An RFP/RFI selection process can streamline the initial phase of an ERP selection process while addressing many of the buyer's vital questions.

IFS Applications Achieves Oracle Exastack Optimized Status


At the IFS World Conference 2012 in Gothenburg, Sweden, it was interesting to notice that Microsoft was the diamond sponsor of the conference, while IBM and Oracle were platinum sponsors.

Conviction is the Intangible in a Successful Positioning Process


You need conviction to skillfully handle the inevitable criticism during the positioning process. Otherwise, you're likely to try something different every time someone challenges you. This doesn't need to happen. Adopt a positioning process that includes an evaluation criterion.

Microsoft to Add "Encore" Functionality to MBS Great Plains 8.0 Part Three: Challenges and User Recommendations

In fact, there will even be a sort of an internal competition, given that MBS already has a partnership with Serenic Software , whose Navigator product is a nonprofit and public sector accounting add-on to MBS Navision.

Competition Heats Up in ERP Market: Oracle Merger, and SAP and Microsoft Reacts


Although Oracle's product roadmap is beginning to take shape it does not include active marketing of the PeopleSoft and J.D. Edwards product lines. As a result of these products being seen as dead ends, many competitors have been scrambling to offer all sorts of incentives to switch to the still disconcerted two camps of existing customers.

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.
