Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
RKL eSolutions LLC, an ERP software provider and Sage Authorized Partner headquartered in Pennsylvania, announced it has taken an ownership equity position in Synergistic Software Solutions, LLC - developers of JobOps. JobOps is an integrated job management software suite for Sage 100 ERP that provides enhanced manufacturing, installation, and field service functionality not found in the core Sage 100 ERP product. The purchase was completed in partnership with Baesis, Inc. along with private equity firm Anania & Associates Investment Co.
Joe Noll, president at RKL eSolutions, says it makes perfect sense based on a changing Sage ERP landscape and recent announcements regarding the future of Sage 500. “We have a significant Sage 500 customer base and while many of them are a great fit for migration to Sage ERP X3, many of them won’t be. Now with Sage 100 ERP combined with JobOps, we can provide a really nice alternative option. It’s a particularly good fit for our small and boutique make-to-order and job shop clients.”
Noll points out that Sage also seems to be re-emphasizing Sage 100 ERP in their overall product portfolio and that RKL eSolutions is mirroring that strategy. “With our investment in JobOps, we’re re-focusing our own energy and commitment to the Sage 100 product and taking a larger stake in a small and mid-sized manufacturing market that we feel is poised for steady long-term growth.”
Given the ongoing changes in the Sage ERP landscape and the more immediate need of their own customers, RKL eSolutions sees tremendous growth opportunity for the JobOps product and for their investment. Noll says, “More than just becoming another JobOps reseller, we had an opportunity to take a financial stake in the company as a whole and feel really good about the potential ROI. Combined with the manufacturing industry expertise that the other two investment partners bring to the table, we think it’s a solid strategic move and are excited about the future of JobOps and Sage 100.”
