CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 07/10/12 -- Less than four months after signing an initial agreement, Cincom Systems (http://www.cincom.com), a worldwide provider of business software, has further extended its relationship with the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT). Cincom has added its Cincom Acquire® configure, price, quote software (http://acquire.cincom.com) to its Global Independent Software Vendor (ISV) agreement with Microsoft Dynamics.
The partnership integrates Cincom Acquire with Microsoft Dynamics CRM and includes the integration of the Cincom Guru business rule engine (http://guru.cincom.com) to knowledge-enable the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform by automating decision-making using business rules.
"This agreement provides fully integrated configure, price, quote functionality for Microsoft Dynamics CRM users," says Jerry Miller, managing director of Cincom's Intelligent Selling Solutions division. "This enables Cincom customers and Microsoft Dynamics CRM users to rapidly grow direct and indirect sales channels by helping sales reps and channel agents make better decisions faster."
Customers in the discrete manufacturing industry will be able to realize exponential gains in profitable growth immediately as a result of this global agreement.
"Cincom Acquire combines Cincom's vertical industry expertise with the powerful Microsoft Dynamics CRM application, and is an example of the innovative solutions being delivered by our partners to help customers achieve their business goals. Cincom Acquire will be a significant benefit to manufacturing customers worldwide," said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Microsoft Dynamics Partners and Support Services.
Cincom was selected by Microsoft to build on the Microsoft Dynamics foundation as part of its Global ISV program because of Cincom's reputation as an industry leader with more than 40 years of transforming complexity into sustainable competitive advantage for global manufacturers. Cincom fulfills a critical customer need by providing deep domain expertise in solving the most pressing complex enterprise challenges from sales to supply chain. The extension of this partnership will enable companies that sell complex products and services to quickly transform into dynamic businesses.
