The Answer Company Purchases Avante Solutions' Canadian SalesLogix Business
The Answer Company, largest Sage Software partner in Western Canada, acquired SalesLogix division from Avante Solutions, based out of Calgary AB.
- (1888PressRelease) March 01, 2012 - One of the largest Sage Software Partners in Canada, The Answer Company, has completed the acquisition of Avante Solutions' Canadian SalesLogix line of business. The deal makes The Answer Company one of the largest Sage SalesLogix providers in Canada.
Based out of Calgary, Toronto, and Chicago, Avante Solutions provides IT service management, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and business intelligence services to a variety of customers. For its existing SalesLogix clients, transitioning to The Answer Company means access to consultants with proven experience providing the complete suite of Sage software solutions, like ERP and accounting products.
Both companies have expressed strong commitment to working together to ensure the transition is smooth for existing Avante's Sage SalesLogix clients. The Answer Company will be honoring all existing support agreements and has hired Avante staff, including Calgary based consultant Paul Garratt, to ensure continued excellence in support and guarantee a seamless transition.
The announcement is another example of The Answer Company's continuous growth. It comes on the heels of a strategic partnership formed with Idasa Sistemas, makers of Rosimann MMS software, announced last October. More recently, the company hired Epicor's experienced consulting manager, Mark Legget, increasing the company's product offerings and support for Epicor software solutions.
"This is a pivotal event for The Answer Company, our first company purchase. With this purchase, The Answer Company becomes one of the largest SalesLogix resellers in Canada, which is very exciting," says Shawn Ostheimer, President of The Answer Company; "We are already the largest MAS 500 (Sage 500) partner, so this acquisition ensures that we maintain our standing as one of the premier Sage partners in Canada."
