The ongoing economic challenges, coupled with changing trends in the software industry, has resulted in an escalation in customer demand for software solutions that leverage open source components and platforms. There is a growing understanding that access to source code increases client control, reduces risk of lock-in and drives down project start-up costs.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 21, 2009
SolTech, an Atlanta-based developer of custom software solutions, is pleased to announce the continued expansion of its services offering with the creation of a commercial open source platform specialty group and its certification as a partner of the leading commercial open source ERP platform vendor, Compiere.
According to Tim Smith, CEO and founder of SolTech, "The ongoing economic challenges, coupled with changing trends in the software industry, has resulted in an escalation in customer demand for software solutions that leverage open source components and platforms. There is a growing understanding that access to source code increases client control, reduces risk of lock-in and drives down project start-up costs."
Smith added that the addition of the Compiere ERP platform to the company's complementary solutions provides exceptional competitive advantage to clients. He said, "Historically larger companies may have been concerned with open source solutions because no one owned the technology, so the 'buck did not stop' on anybody's desk. Formal certification on the Compiere ERP platform, combined with our proven track record, puts clients at ease knowing that not only is the platform supported by Compiere, but it also enjoys complete implementation and customization support from SolTech."
According to Allen Lovett, Executive Vice President, Field Operations, Compiere, "We are delighted to add SolTech to our growing partner base in the U.S. and abroad. The partnership comes at a key time in the open source marketplace, as new survey results reveal, that many companies are evaluating and adopting open source technology more than ever before for mission critical business applications such as ERP. We look forward to working with SolTech to service its clients across the Southeast region. The company's excellent reputation and experience aligns well with Compiere's leadership position throughout the global ERP marketplace."
