Fusion5 merger offers more partner opportunities

01 Dec 09

There will be more opportunities for channel partners with the merger between Fusion5 and Savio Solutions, thanks to the new organisation’s increased size and market scope, says Fusion5 CRM manager Adam Johnston.
Given the “natural synergies” between the two companies, the merger should be smoothly integrated, with all Savio Solutions customers, teams and partners coming under the management of Fusion5, he says.
The end result will be that the new company will allow channel partners a more diverse range of offerings in the ERP, CRM and HCM spaces.
It will also pave the way for the new company to aggressively penetrate the marketplace in 2010.
“We have several key goals for 2010, including improved servicing, support of, and value-add to existing clients with what we believe is now the largest pool of professional CRM consultants in NZ,” he says.
“There will also be an aggressive push to further penetrate and develop existing markets, as well as educating the general business population around how their organisations can benefit from a CRM mindset and culture – and the role that an appropriate technology solution can play to support this.”
