Australian-based software vendor Momentum Utilities announced yesterday a new distribution arrangement with Sydney-based IT services company Aspect Computing.
Under the terms of the deal, Aspect will market, implement and support Momentum's information retrieval products, including OPEN/DB-Jacana-Valet for iSeries (AS/400) report writing, JacanaForms for electronic form production and ValetMiner for report mining.
Momentum Utilities' general manager for the Asia Pacific and alliances, Frank Tidswell, believes the deal with Aspect will lead to a significant increase in Momentum's presence in the Australian market place.
"Despite the general downturn in the economy, we are confident our products will do well because they represent cost-savings to companies," Tidswell said.
Roger Davies, Aspect's general manager of sales, plans to sell through to the companies existing AS/400 end-user markets, commenting that they were already in the market for the "electronic reporting capabilities" that Momentum software offers.
