ATHENS, Ala., Sept. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edgewater Fullscope, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Edgewater Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:EDGW) and Microsoft Gold Certified enterprise resource planning (ERP) partner in North America, and Sable Systems, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and integrated solutions vendor (ISV) in Australia, have entered a strategic partnership to integrate, market and sell their respective solutions and services in North America and Asia Pacific. Both partners market Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP and have developed extensive additional product functionality. Sable offers a range of supply chain and operational functionality, while Fullscope has developed additional features for process industries. The partnership will integrate their products and thereby create a deeper single solution, especially for food and beverage companies, while also expanding its global potential. Sable Systems will sell the integrated Microsoft Dynamics AX solution in Asia Pacific as "Fullscope Australia," while Fullscope will sell Sable's ISV products primarily to food and beverage manufacturers throughout the United States and Canada. The partnership extends Fullscope's sales and service capabilities to the Asia Pacific market, with Australia and New Zealand as the initial entry points. Sable will benefit from a strong partner that will sell and implement its ISV products to process companies in North America. "For several years we've been selling Sable solutions to our process customers in the U.S. and Canada as stand-alone options in order to address certain issues, including landed cost and demand planning," said John Scandar, senior vice president of Edgewater Fullscope. "But now the integration of Sable with our solution allows us to offer these customers an even more robust product, while dramatically extending our geographic footprint and market for Microsoft Dynamics." Martin Wildsmith, executive vice president of Sable Systems, commented: "Leveraging Fullscope's reputation and expertise in process industries and manufacturing will allow Fullscope Australia to grow aggressively, as well as deliver local support to our growing international client base. As with Edgewater Fullscope, this new partnership also significantly expands our Dynamics AX marketplace."
