Mid-market business software distributor, Sage Business Solutions, is distributing integrated document management (IDM) solutions vendor, Altec Products’ doc-link software in the A/NZ market due to the demand for integrated document management solutions in the region, according to Sage’s marketing manager for the region, Charles Pludthura.
The partnership, which has existed in North America since 1998, will bring the Sage-endorsed doc-link, through its A/NZ resellers, to a market looking for solutions which reduce carbon footprint.
“We felt there was a need for document management in our region that Altec could fulfil with its doc-link as we identified it as tested and trusted,” Pludthura said.
“All partners will have doc-link as a checkbox for opportunities they have in the region,” he said.
Sage anticipates that its resellers in the sector will benefit from the agreement as the value for proposition for paperless process systems is a “no brainer.”
Although there is no new or revamped reseller program to accompany the announcement, Sage will be offering joint marketing, training, and certification as the product fits well with its existing line-up.
Sage currently has no plans to bring any other Altec products to the A/NZ market, although, if other products in the vendor’s portfolio can fulfil the demands of customers in the region, Sage will look into it, Pludthura added.
“With this agreement, Sage continues its commitment to delivering solution with a measurable return on investment,” Altec CEO, Mark Ford, said. “The combination of the region’s economy along with a conservation mindset is driving a strong demand for paperless processing systems.”
