Paul Ziliak, Partner at xkzero noted, "They [MicroAccounting Solutions] are genuine leaders in our industry, and we are thrilled and honored to have this merger become a reality.”
"While this is good news for the two companies involved, the most exciting thing is the immediate and long-term benefit for customers,” said Ziliak. “Each company's customers automatically gain new services that meet the high expectations that they expect from their existing Sage Partner. We feel that this move creates the strongest, most talented Sage ERP focused service and support partner in the U.S.”
