A Quiet ERP Vendor Merger That’s Worth a Closer Look


The CMS Software-XKO Software merger into Solarsoft Business Solutions offers proof that smaller enterprise resource planning vendors are not extinct yet. Perhaps in the grand scheme of things, no one should really care about such events, but these less well-known vendors haven’t said their last words yet.

ecrs cms  Quiet ERP Vendor Merger That’s Worth a Closer Look Mergers and acquisitions (M&As) among enterprise resource planning (ERP) providers are hardly uncommon, but by now the market has become accustomed to witnessing either “mega-mergers” or those involving at least one participant with a global presence. Thus, not many heads turned in April 2007 when two low-profile (or even obscure) vendors from Canada and the UK respectively announced their merger to create a more notable international ERP entity, Read More

Small Merger Challenges and Recommendations to Users


The recent merger of enterprise resource planning vendors CMS Software (now known as Solarsoft Business Systems) and XKO Software presents some challenges. Although little overlap exists between the companies’ product lines, customers should verify that pre-merger support and service contracts are honored.
