2 November, 2011 – The Sage Group plc (LSE: SGE), a leading business management software provider and Deveho Consulting have announced the signing of a partnership for the localization of Sage ERP X3. Deveho Consulting joins the Global Partner Program, allowing Sage to market its offering from the second quarter of 2012 in four new countries: Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic. This announcement, which follows the launch of Sage ERP X3 in Russia, demonstrates Sage's intention to establish itself in the medium to large enterprise market in Central and Eastern Europe.
As part of the Global Partner Program, Deveho Consulting will be responsible for translation, localization, maintenance and development, and marketing in full collaboration with Sage. The localized solutions will also be available for all Sage partners and subsidiaries.
Sage ERP X3 has been designed for medium to large enterprises, employing between 50 and 2,500 staff, who not only require a robust local solution, but also one with functionality extended for international operations. Today, more than 3,300 enterprises representing over 165,000 users in more than 50 countries use Sage ERP X3.
Fabien Poggi, Manager of Sage's Export division, focusing on Sage development in new countries, is delighted with the partnership: "Deveho Consulting is a long-standing partner of Sage. They bring their experience and expertise in working with large enterprises and they also know the specific requirements of these businesses, particularly when there is an international dimension. Thanks to this alliance with Deveho Consulting we continue opening up new markets for Sage ERP X3 and to position ourselves in those countries where we expect high growth over the coming years."
Guy Leclercq, co-founder and CEO at Deveho Consulting, added, "This partnership is naturally a recognition of our expertise, but it is above all an excellent opportunity in terms of long-term business, which will allow us to continue expanding into those markets where we see high demand. Moreover, we will be installing subsidiaries in Bratislava and Bucharest so that we can support this development in close proximity."
Emmanuel Obadia, Senior VP Sage ERP X3 commented, “I am pleased that Deveho Consulting is now part of our Global Partner Program which launched in May of this year and enjoy already great success. By localizing Sage ERP X3 for markets in Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Sage fulfills customer growing requirements of supporting their operations in Eastern Europe.
