Best Software Delivers More Insights To Its Partners (As Well As To The Market) Part Five: Challenges and User Recommendations


Best Software/Sage is a company that delivers products based on savvy understanding of its customers' needs, of the competitive forces in the market, and on constant adaptability. It is still standing on top of the hill in many SME markets, and it is typically a much more difficult task for anyone to capture the hill than to defend it.

Rapidly Consolidating Enterprise Applications Market: The Worlds of 'Organic Growers' and 'Aggressive Consolidators'

Agresso Bucks the Slump (and Fights the “ERP Madness”) - Part 1


Sadly, it is not difficult for so many of us to concede that, except for maybe the historic elections in the US and the successful Olympic Games in Beijing, 2008 was a terrible and somber year. It felt long-drawn-out, and many of us will have trouble sinking it easily into oblivion.

Will Recent Acquisition Catalyze Catalyst’s Strategy? Part One: Event Summary


For years, Catalyst International was a leading public WMS/SCE vendor before missteps by its previous management team caused serious problems in strategy and execution. Over the past few years Catalyst's turnaround strategy has returned it to growth and profitability. As a result, it has recently been acquired by ComVest, a wealthy, private investment firm. This development may indicate private equity investors' renewed interest in this market and might validate the company's turnaround strategy that began in late 2001. Still, the question remains whether the anticipated infusion of capital from ComVest will enable Catalyst to become a consolidator and rejoin its mightier direct competitors in the industry's upper echelon.

unit 4 agresso acquisition  Catalyst did explore growth opportunities afforded by porting its WMS to other platforms. In the late 1990s, the company made two attempts to port its UNIX-based software to the Microsoft Windows NT platform, including a scaled down version of its WMS for the mid-market, but neither generate significant new sales and both were subsequently discontinued. During the halcyon days of the early and mid-1990s, Catalyst enjoyed positive compound annual revenue growth of 20 percent. Later that decade, however, Read More
