Purpose Software has partnered with MWA Intelligence to launch FORZA, a SAP Business One-based system which is the first of a new generation of total business management software solutions for the Managed Services and Print Reseller industry. FORZA includes all sales, service and accounting functionality on an integrated platform giving instant access to a single source of real-time data when and where it is needed the most to increase performance, efficiency and profitability.
According to Purpose Software: “Instead of just releasing a cloud-based version of our existing software, we have taken a totally different approach by launching an integrated platform based on SAP Business One, the world’s most installed ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. We now have the widest portfolio of current solutions and FORZA will further extend our market leadership and reach. Also, as our customers continue to extend the services they offer to their clients, they can be confident that FORZA will provide the required functionality and support their growth.”
MWA is a premier SAP Business One OEM Partner with a passion for developing innovative business software to meet the specific needs of resellers with over 25 years’ experience of working with the MPS and Print Reseller industry. The company has the same heritage as Purpose Software which has established itself as the leading UK supplier of service and business management solutions over the last 30 years. This level of combined expertise is unrivalled in the industry.
“The immediate attractiveness of FORZA from a business perspective is quite remarkable,” continued Purpose Software. “We knew that this product would provide an immense opportunity for us to grow as well as form a new cohesive partnership with MWA, a company that shares our approach to meeting the specific needs of resellers. The FORZA platform will help resellers expand into other new markets such as such as cloud services, managed services, managed network services, security and more.”
It is particularly significant that FORZA is based on SAP Business One, which is used by more than 50,000 organisations worldwide. As a SAP Innovation Partner of the Year, MWA has consistently demonstrated its commitment to introducing resellers to the benefits that this new generation of ERP solutions can provide. It is clear that with SAP investing tens of millions of pounds into the Business One product, resellers are going to see faster and more advanced developments than could ever be achieved with traditional bespoke service management applications.
Michael T. Stramaglio, President and CEO of MWA Intelligence, Inc. added: “After establishing FORZA in the USA as an ERP built by the industry for the industry, we knew that Purpose Software would be our dream partner for the UK market. We see the company as part of the FORZA team, helping to make the channel stronger whilst enabling resellers to make the move into new areas without having to worry about having the infrastructure to manage new and profitable revenue streams.”
MWA is aligned with key partners, both inside and outside the channel, including SAP, Intel, Konica Minolta, Xerox, Sharp and many others. The company also has an established support network, the FORZA Focus Community, which includes a knowledgebase with documentation for the FORZA solution. It is where users can post questions, ask for support and make feature requests that are easily sorted and tracked. This ensures that FORZA users, in addition to using the industry’s most advanced ERP solution, are provided with the highest level of ongoing support to maximise the benefits of this revolutionary new system.
