DENVER, July 24, 2002 — FRx Software Corp., a Microsoft Business Solutions company, today announced it has launched the FRx®
Analytics Reseller Partner Program. The new program allows qualified organizations to expand their business by giving them the opportunity to sell and implement FRx Software products that use enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications that are not supported by one of FRx Software’s many ERP system interfaces.
“The FRx Analytics Reseller Partner Program will empower resellers with the knowledge necessary to become the analytics consulting expert for their existing customers as well as markets that they haven’t penetrated yet,” said Holly Simpson, vice president of partner sales at FRx Software. “Reseller partners will be able to expand their businesses by selling value-added implementation and training services associated with rolling out analytical solutions to new markets at an enterprise level.”
“For nearly 10 years, the Lighthouse Group has been building expertise around FRx Software products,” said Myles Beskind, president of the Lighthouse Group, which delivers technology-based business consulting services to the enterprise. “We are honored to be one of the first partners in the FRx Analytics Reseller Partner Program, and feel that because of our participation in it, we are already expanding our business by selling value-added FRx Forecaster implementation services. Our first customer under this program, which uses a custom-built general ledger application, has already saved more than $200,000.”
The FRx Analytics Reseller Partner Program offers a number of options and benefits for qualifying organizations. Not only are companies now able to fully resell FRx Software applications, significant sales and marketing support also is now available to resellers. That support includes media relations, product collateral, remote sales training, a co-op marketing program, Webinar (Web seminar) participation, and automatic enrollment in a program designed to assist resellers with certification, marketing and sales activities.
Korey Lind is president and CEO at Third Wave Business Systems, a provider of business and enterprise solutions and applications. Lind’s company has enjoyed a long relationship with FRx Software.
“Now more than ever, it’s important for companies to budget and plan proactively and analyze numbers rapidly in order to make timely informed decisions. As an experienced enterprise solutions provider, we’re in a perfect position to help organizations realize the benefits of financial planning and analysis tools,” Lind said. “We’ve been implementing analytic applications for FRx Software for almost 10 years now. The fact that we can expand on this experience by selling integration, installation and training services associated with rolling out analytical solutions to new markets at an enterprise level is very exciting and helpful, considering the current state of the economy.”
