Local software provider Professional Advantage has signed an international original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partnership agreement with UK based software house, Systems Union.
The deal will take Professional Advantage’s Australian-developed electronic procurement product, internet Purchase Order System (iPOS), to SunSystems customers globally.
Systems Union is hoping that iPOS will enhance its SunSystems functionality.
“We took a comprehensive look at the five best international developers of e-procurement products for our SunSystem software,” ANZ managing director of Systems Union, Bill Bryce, said.
“Professional Advantage’s iPOS won hands down.”
The agreement is expected to increase Professional Advantage’s export earnings by at least 25 per cent.
This is the second OEM agreement that the company has with Systems Union.
In addition to this, Professional Advantage also has longstanding OEM agreements with the Microsoft Business Solutions group.
“Our export strategy has provided access to markets previously beyond our reach,” Professional Advantage joint managing director, Steve Howcroft, said. “And our export success reinforces the high standard of software development taking place in the Australian IT community every day of the week.”
