Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 24, 2010
Mindover Software, a Sage business software reseller based in Austin, TX, announced today that it will take key steps toward a merger with Co-OpTek, a custom software and web design firm from Baltimore, Maryland.
The two companies will start by combining their respective services into a complementary offering that will include ERP and CRM software from Sage, custom application development, software integration and website design. According to Lloyd Smith, President of Mindover Software, the pre-merger action will leverage the technical strengths of the two firms so that both can begin offering a broader suite of services to their respective customers. “This allows us to offer much more custom application development and website design to satisfy the custom integration needs of our customers,” he says. “We’ve worked with the team at Co-OpTek for three years now on numerous projects and have seen the value of offering a complete line-up of technology services.”
Recent projects Co-OpTek performed with Mindover Software include complex integration programming between Sage Accpac ERP and a non-Sage CRM application for an HR consulting company, a custom self-service website based on SageCRM for an oilfield services company and Accpac and CRM customizations for a national stone and tile company.
“There are many advantages we’ll gain from working with Co-OpTek’s high-end programming team,” Smith says. “More of our customers are demanding an integrated software platform to run their entire company. Since many companies run disparate software, integration requires both custom programming and an understanding of the underlying business processes. Merging our operations with Co-OpTek allows us to work with any off-the-shelf or custom developed software to create a seamless operating system which will lower costs and improve operations,” he adds.
In addition to adding new service offerings, Smith expects the pre-merger activity will lead to the hiring of additional staff over the next 12 months. “Given the incredible demand for Sage CRM and integration of CRM to ERP and operational software, we’re expecting to bring on additional consultants and a couple programmers with extensive experience working with .NET, AJAX and PHP,” Smith says.
Mindover Software plans to update its website to reflect its new suite of software development and website design services in early May.
