Scribe Software, the leading data integration and migration solution choice of Microsoft Dynamics® CRM, Microsoft Dynamics® GP and Microsoft Dynamics® NAV partners and customers, today announced that it has hired Microsoft Dynamics channel veteran John Gravely to lead the company's Marketing and Product Marketing efforts.

In his role at Scribe, John will be responsible for understanding market needs and opportunities, ensuring Scribe products meet these needs and opportunities, and communicating Scribe's value to prospects and customers. In 2001 John founded c360 solutions, a developer of add-on products, industry solutions and development tools for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform. In 2006, John engineered the acquisition of c360 by CDC Software, a division of CDC Corporation (NASDQ: CHINA). As CEO of c360 John grew the company from 2 people to a globally recognized brand with over 2,500 customers in 40+ countries, 800 resellers, products in 8 languages and receipt of the prestigious Microsoft Partner Choice ISV Award for 2005. Prior to starting c360 John was the Eastern Region Consulting Director for the Professional Services team of Onyx Software (currently Consona CRM), a mid-market CRM provider.

"John has a proven track record of staying close to customers and partners, understanding their needs and delivering solutions that meet those needs," remarked Scribe CEO, Mark Prestipino. "His success in founding and building c360, specifically with respect to marketing and product marketing, translates perfectly into Scribe's goal of continuing to maintain and grow our leadership position within Microsoft Dynamics and beyond."

"Scribe is a committed leader in the integration market providing low-cost, no-coding, easy to implement technology that can be used as the only tool mid-market businesses need to integrate virtually any application, data source or Software as a Service (SaaS) platform," commented Mr. Gravely. "With a conservatively estimated 50%+ penetration rate into the Microsoft Dynamics CRM customer base and strong penetration into Dynamics GP and Dynamics NAV Scribe has become the standard integration platform within the Microsoft Dynamics channel. Beyond Microsoft Dynamics, the Scribe tool is a great solution for an even wider audience and I look forward to seeing that all mid-market businesses get to know Scribe as their tool of choice for integration."
