IT Services company, Professional Advantage, has been awarded Global Channel Partner of the Year by enterprise software vendor, Epicor.
The award was presented to Professional Advantage at Epicor’s Perspectives conference in Las Vegas.
It was judged both on the revenue the partner generated for Epicor and the “level of implementation success” the partner achieved.
General manager of the Epicor division at Professional Advantage, Craig Charlton, said the services company has more than 42 staff certified in Epicor products and was competing against several hundred Epicor resellers around the world.
Charlton was cautiously optimistic on the impact of Epicor’s planned merger with Scala.
“It’s early days yet, but anything as significant as this is going to have some impact,” he said.
Charlton was content that the vendor’s stock would continue to trade under the Epicor brand and that most of the vendor’s board would consist mostly of Epicor executives.
“I understand their rationale – Epicor has a good presence in places like the US, UK and Australia, and Scala has a good presence in continental Europe and Asia,” he said.
