San Antonio, TX  (PRWEB) April 24, 2006
Business Computer Systems (BCS) and ProSoft today announced an agreement to merge the two companies, a move that will create a more effective and efficient business software solutions provider specializing in the Sage Software family of products.
The two individual companies’ combined customer count now exceeds 1,000. This places BCS…ProSoft amongst the top Sage Software Business Partners in North America and among the top accounting software providers in the country.
BCS…ProSoft will service the entire Southwest from its headquarters in San Antonio, TX and its offices in Phoenix, AZ and Denver, CO. Clark Haley, former President of BCS will serve as President and CEO. Dean Northey from ProSoft, will serve as CFO. Former ProSoft principals Russ Graf and Brian Cork will serve respectively as VP for Business Development and VP of Sales. William Vespe of BCS will function as VP of Technical Services.
“The merger will create substantial value for our clients and business partners,” said Haley. “BCS operates in an attractive region with a growing economy. It has great employees and a large and growing client base. We also have a strong record in terms of customer service and an added specialization in the rental marketplace. These strengths, added to a large sales network and the expanded geographic coverage of ProSoft, will improve our ability to provide innovative services to more customers while returning substantial value to our stakeholders and improving our growth profile.”
The new company will be more innovative, efficient, and customer-focused, providing benefits to customers by combining a strong sales engine and heightened attention to service with award-winning products. As a result, the combined company will be better able to respond to the demanding and varied needs of the small and mid-sized business software marketplace.
