Netfira, a B2B software solutions provider with operations in Australia, Europe and the United States has announced it will partner with Development-X to integrate Netfira’s suite of products with the Development-X Ostendo Operations Software, the leading inventory and operations management add-on solution for MYOB, QuickBooks and Pastel accounting systems in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Malaysia and Singapore.
Pleasanton, CA, June 1, 2010 – Netfira, a B2B software solutions provider with operations in Australia, Europe and the United States has announced it will partner with Development-X to integrate Netfira’s suite of products with the Development-X Ostendo Operations Software, the leading inventory and operations management add-on solution for MYOB, QuickBooks and Pastel accounting systems in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Malaysia and Singapore.
This represents a significant strategic alliance, since Netfira offers the world’s first solution to enable real-time electronic buying and selling between businesses of any size, and Development-X’s Ostendo supports multi-company, multi-user businesses to integrate inventory and crucial operational activities into existing accounting software to give users complete, real-time information allowing them to make accurate decisions and get faster results. Both solutions are compatible with some of the most popular accounting systems in use today.
According to Jay Hennock, Netfira VP ANZ, “We are very excited about the Development-X partnership as there are over 3000 Ostendo users in Australia and New Zealand who can benefit from the integration of Netfira to Ostendo, as well as new Ostendo users having a ‘tick-box’ option to use Netfira. Equally, we believe a number of existing and new Netfira users would benefit by adopting Ostendo. It is the first time that an accounting software vendor partner has used Netfira’s SDK to integrate Netfira to its products. We believe a number of other vendors will see the benefits of integrating with Netfira using our SDK.”
The Netfira integration with Ostendo will officially launch at the Development-X Partner conference in Taupo, New Zealand on July 26, 2010. Meanwhile, Netfira is training Ostendo partners to become accredited Netfira Professional Partners and also implementing pilot demonstration projects. There are 40 Ostendo Enterprise Level Partners and 100 Corporate Level partners, all of whom are MYOB, QuickBooks or Pastel certified consultants. According to Jeff Keith, Managing Director of Development-X, “The Netfira Ostendo partnership provides our users with real-time connectivity to their customers for product pricing and availability, and real-time ordering. Netfira virtually eliminates phone, fax and email processes, manual data entry and the associated errors. By adding Netfira to Ostendo, our users will be able to trade electronically in real-time with their customers, whether they are using, MYOB, QuickBooks or Pastel.”
