The team from Cincom Australia were lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel up to sunny Queensland to participate in Microsoft’s annual Australia Partner Conference (APC) earlier this month.
2012 saw Microsoft’s largest APC yet with more than 1,200 participants, 800 of those partners. Moving from its past home in the Gold Coast, the event was held at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on the picturesque Brisbane River with the theme ‘Think Big.”
“APC is a great launch pad for Cincom’s future commitment to the Microsoft relationship in Australia. At APC we were able to network with other ISVs and System Integrators. We are keen to work with partners to deliver the best solutions to the Australian market and beyond,” says Greg Mills.
Key to Cincom’s Global ISV partnership with Microsoft, is the creation of a new Cincom ERP solution for Complex Enterprises built on the Microsoft Dynamics AX framework. The new solution will combine the horizontal breadth of Microsoft Dynamics AX with the technology depth unique to advanced manufacturing.
Due for release in late 2012, the new Cincom ERP solution is already gathering interest with Stefan Jansen, Microsoft Dynamics Partner Sales Lead drawing attention to the new product in his session at APC “Grow your business with Dynamics Business Solutions.”
Only two months ago it was also announced that the Global ISV agreement will expand to include Cincom’s configure, price, quote solution, Cincom Acquire™. This inclusion will mean Dynamics CRM customers will have the opportunity to leverage Cincom’s configure, price, quote solution to deliver quicker quotes, accelerate sales and close deals 80 percent faster. Cincom Acquire is available now.
Cincom was selected by Microsoft to be part of its Global ISV program because of its reputation as an industry leader with more than 40 years of transforming complexity into sustainable competitive advantage for global manufacturers. The new solutions will allow both Microsoft and Cincom to further penetrate the complex industry segment with cutting edge technologies that truly support complex companies becoming successful dynamic businesses.
“We are really excited about the relationship with Microsoft as it brings real value to business application customers. Microsoft has developed applications that are robust, scalable and work across an integrated technology platform. Cincom’s domain expertise for complex enterprises; be it in maintenance and repair, projects, manufacturing or finance is a tangible value add to Microsoft users looking for an alternative Tier 1 and 2 ERP or CRM solution,” says Greg Mills Cincom Country Manager.
