Last week Odyssey Development announced its first foray into application sales and distribution with Microdec's Profile 2000.
Profile 2000 is a recruitment software package designed to monitor and manage recruitment business processes. It is claimed to have had considerable success in the English and European markets, especially since adopting the ISYS search facility.
Microdec sales and marketing manager Mike Fitzgerald said: "Odyssey has had input into the product and has a sense of ownership and pride that could not be achieved through a traditional distribution line. They are the people we want representing us in Australasia."
According to Odyssey's managing director, Ian Davies, Odyssey has sold around 200 software developer kit licences over the last two years, so it expects to be able to identify other opportunities to extend its range of applications. He told ARN: "Profile 2000 is a specialist high-end product which we will sell direct, but we may soon have products that would be suited to a traditional reseller channel."
