DENVER, Feb. 27, 2003 — FRx Software Corp., a Microsoft® Business Solutions company, signed on Canadian solutions provider Abacus Enterprise Solutions LP to implement both FRx® Forecaster and FRx®
Financial Reporter solutions throughout Canada.
Abacus is based in Guelph, Ontario, and according to marketing manager Stephen McInnes, works
“symbiotically with our implementation partners and FRx Software, providing them with software and sales support, as well as infrastructure planning and implementation abilities.”
“Abacus is a unique and critical solutions provider for FRx Software,”
said Holly Simpson, vice president of partner sales at FRx Software.
“Abacus will now distribute, implement and support FRx Software solutions across Canada.”
FRx Software launched the FRx®
Analytics Reseller Partner Program in July 2002. The 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 and that are not supported by one of FRx Software’s many ERP system interfaces.
The FRx Analytics Reseller Partner Program offers a number of options and benefits for qualifying organizations. Companies are now able to distribute FRx Software applications with the added benefit of significant sales and marketing support provided by FRx Software. The support includes media relations assistance, product collateral development, remote sales training, cooperative marketing and webinar (online seminar) participation. FRx Software also assists resellers with certification, marketing and sales activities.
Abacus Enterprise Solutions LP was established in October 2001 and has six national locations in Canada: Vancouver, Edmonton/Calgary, Guelph/South Western Ontario, Mississauga/GTA, Ottawa and Montreal.
