By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor
Streamline Systems, a Microsoft (News - Alert) Dynamics AX Value Added Reseller (VAR), in Denver, Colorado, and Sikich, a global accounting and advisory firm, announced their merger to enable Sikich to become a full-fledged provider of Microsoft Dynamics business solutions software.
The merger is significant for Sikich which aims to deliver the best ERP software in the market. The addition of Streamline Systems’ capabilities will help expand Sikich's Microsoft Dynamics Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) practice and help that firm offer a complete suite of Microsoft Dynamics products including Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics SL.
Following the merger, Streamline Systems' team members and customer base will be integrated into Sikich's national operations, supporting the firm's growth strategy and further cementing their place as a top tier IT service provider. The merger of Sikich and Streamline Systems will operate under the name Sikich.
“The addition of Microsoft Dynamics AX to our product offerings will now give us the opportunity to bring a new generation of ERP software to our customers,” said Jeff Rudolph, partner-in-charge of Technology at Sikich, in a statement. “Microsoft Dynamics AX represents a generational shift in business software, delivering new levels of capability, unsurpassed agility, and industry-operational functionality.”
Both Sikich and Streamline Systems share the Microsoft ERP Gold Competency, a distinction given to only the top one percent of Microsoft partners worldwide that had demonstrated an outstanding degree of proficiency. The combination brings together the best of ERP specialists from both organizations.
Al Galinot, managing partner of the Microsoft Dynamics AX Practice at Streamline Systems, said, “Our customers require more than just the Microsoft Dynamics AX implementation services we offer at Streamline. They are looking for a partner to provide the Microsoft technology platforms that coexist with Microsoft Dynamics AX -- like SharePoint, SQL Reporting Services, .NET (News - Alert) Development, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Managed Services and the Cloud. And by merging with Sikich, we can offer all of this and more.”
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, the latest ERP software from the company, was released in May 2011. It features comprehensive ERP software functionality combined with the specific capabilities government organizations need to operate and respond efficiently, quickly and reliably to constituent needs and legislative mandates.
