EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J., Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NALPRO Business Solutions, a leading provider of software and services, has signed a reseller agreement with world-class ERP provider, Pronto Software. The partnership will enable NALPRO to better serve larger mid-market customers in the eastern part of the US with a more robust solution encompassing various industries.
Pronto Software is a developer of enterprise software solutions to the mid market, with more than 1,500 customers in 27 countries. Its flagship product, PRONTO-Xi, is the next generation ERP solution bringing together a strong transactional engine and Business Intelligence (BI) Analytics in a unified, out-of-the-box solution. Embedding the powerful IBM Cognos 10 BI suite, PRONTO-Xi provides the tools for companies to become more efficient and improve cash flow as markets and businesses adapt to unpredictable circumstances.
According to NALPRO President Nicholas Lordi, the company was eager to partner with a vendor that shared a sharp focus on driving business outcomes and strong ROI for customers.
"We were impressed with the breadth and depth of PRONTO-Xi's functionality across many industries. The tight integration with a world-class BI solution addresses key market needs including instant insight into business performance for faster, smarter decision making.
"This partnership enables us to grow our competitive position and gain a larger foothold into the upper mid-market, in particular industries with manufacturing, distribution and services requirements," Lordi said.
"Despite the sluggish economy, a lot of business is still being done and technology investments are going forward - especially those that deliver productivity improvements, efficiency gains and reduced costs - such as PRONTO-Xi.
"We were also attracted to Pronto's overall attitude toward the customer and our business growth. We share a similar philosophy in terms of how to conduct business for the benefit of the customer while at the same time providing NALPRO with the tools for long term success."
Lordi said NALPRO has already identified three very strong opportunities for PRONTO-Xi and based on this early interest, it appears there can be significant growth in the software business over the next five years.
According to Pronto Software Vice President for North America, Terry Leister, the partnership signals continued development for Pronto Software's reseller base in the US market to meet growing interest in PRONTO-Xi.
"Research shows that companies who maintain investment during downturns to become more efficient will extend their endurance if the recession persists, and outperform their competitors when conditions improve. And PRONTO-Xi provides the exact tools to help businesses maximize productivity and improve profitability.
"This partnership builds on Pronto Software's successful expansion of our reseller channel over the last three years. NALPRO brings to the program extensive operations in New Jersey and California, hence further strengthening our presence in the USA's commercial and industrial heartland," Leister said.
"We have a strong track record of nurturing profitable relationships with our channel partners. NALPRO is an excellent fit with our business and we welcome them into our growing partner network," Leister concluded.
