Saturday, December 4th, 2010 - Software Alliance Group (“The Best Choice For Business Software”)
Sydney, 4th December 2010 … Software distributor Software Alliance Group has signed a new channel development agreement with business management software developer Sage Pastel.

The culmination of more than a year of negotiations between the two companies, the new agreement allows Software Alliance Group to take full advantage of new markets that have emerged since Australia recovered from the GFC-related economic slowdown.

Software Alliance Group has a distribution association with Sage Pastel dating back to 1988 and constantly ranks within the top four of Sage Pastel’s world-wide distributors.

This latest agreement ushers in a new era for Sage Pastel in Australia with the development of a new channel program that will enable Software Alliance Group to aggressively recruit new resellers and expand the channel. “Our new channel program will provide a huge business opportunity for both our new and our existing resellers”, said John North, Chief Executive Officer of Software Alliance Group. “We are now able to leverage the massive global brand of Sage which is one of the world’s largest providers of accounting software solutions. Importantly, we offer excellent margins, full access to a impressive range of in-house products and an easy and affordable monthly reseller fee structure.”

Sage Pastel’s range of products accommodates all sizes of business and all types of needs from micro businesses with the My Business software system through to the full Enterprise Resource Planning solution, Sage Pastel Evolution. “When it comes to quality of software system our resellers simply won’t be able to find anything better on the market”, said Mr North.

"Sage Pastel has a long and highly valued association with its distributor Software Alliance Group”, said Daryl Blundell, Sales Director of Sage Pastel. "We are very pleased, via this new channel agreement, to enter a new phase with Software Alliance Group and are confident that the agreement will bring enormous benefits to that company's resellers and customers as well as lay the groundwork for the expansion of Software Alliance Group's channel."
