Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 28, 2006
The Partner Leveraged Affiliate Network has announced the addition of Business Modeler™, a software solution designed to build models and analyze different perspectives of a company, to their portfolio of product solutions available to partners for resale and business use. Business Modeler can act as a stand alone solution or as an add-on product to IFS Applications™ ERP software. It was developed by Xdin, one of Sweden's fastest growing technical consulting companies.
“Business Modeler has achieved significant market penetration in Europe. Now we are looking to expand in the United States,” said Christer Carlström, Director of Partner Sales at Xdin. “The PLAN has a great distribution channel in place across the U.S. and is an ideal fit for our solution.”
Business Modeler is a software suite used to graphically describe different dimensions of a business activity or an organization with visual or graphical documents that become models for corporate structure and processes. It can be used to visually clarify relationships but its strength lies in the concept created around using the tool. It is unique thanks to its ability to cover several corporate perspectives.
“Business Modeler can be compared to using blueprints when building a house,” said Mike Hawksworth, CEO and President of MSS Enterprise Solutions, the western master distributor of The PLAN. “The models illustrate the structure and interpretation of the current business. Companies can illustrate connections and the effects of change before implementing new processes or systems.”
The PLAN is a unique "partnership of partners" whose affiliates combine the strengths of their areas of expertise as resellers, systems integrators, service providers, or specialists in specific vertical markets. The Business Modeler partnership adds to the impressive portfolio of software solutions that The PLAN has made available to partner affiliates for resale and internal business use.
