From today’s press release:
LIVINGSTON, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SWK Technologies, Inc. (SWK), a Sage Software certified gold development and business partner for more than 20 years, just signed its first Sage ERP X3 client, RFI Ingredients (RFI). The announcement made by Jeffrey D. Roth, CEO of SWK, builds on the strategy he announced in February 2010 to increase SWK’s presence throughout the Northeast by selling Sage ERP X3 and providing related services to clients. SWK is one of a handful of nationwide Sage business partners to recently adopt Sage ERP X3.
“Sage ERP X3 adapts to a company regardless of size or organization style.”
Based in Blauvelt, NY, RFI is a manufacturer of innovative natural ingredients for the food, functional food and dietary supplement industries. The company has decided to upgrade its systems to Sage ERP X3 based on recent and projected growth, compliance with Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP), the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), a new location, and to better manage its inventory.
“Sage ERP X3’s focus on collaborative technology and its customizable interface is a great solution for RFI because the system will simplify processes and increase efficiency,” said Andrew M. Nunez, SWK’s Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of Sales, who was formerly with NexTec’s New Jersey office. “Sage ERP X3 adapts to a company regardless of size or organization style.”
“I am not surprised that we’ve already signed our first Sage ERP X3 client,” said Roth. “Not only have we seen great demand in the marketplace, but our sales and consulting teams have been meeting with prospects and current clients to spread the word about Sage ERP X3.”
“RFI is another example of SWK’s full-service approach to working with clients; ERP X3 broadens the strong relationship we already have with them,” said Matthew Hahn, Vice President of Network Services. “Initially, we provided RFI with SWK’s Network and Managed Services offering. Now, we can build on this success to bring similar solutions to even more clients.”
