ASNA and Centerlogic are proud to announce an alliance that makes these two companies one of the premier providers of ASNA-based AS/400 and .NET solutions.

Centerlogic, founded in Portland, Ore., over five years ago, is a privately held organization actively harnessing the latest advancements in technology. "The focus of our business is to provide intelligent, secure access to core business information. We help businesses of all sizes become more productive and profitable by leveraging their existing infrastructure more effectively," says Kevin McVicker, president and CEO of Centerlogic. "We create our solutions through a specialized approach called 'Fundamental Business Architecture.' This architecture provides a complete solution that strengthens and secures the network infrastructure, enhances core business applications, integrates existing information and intelligently extends the information beyond the enterprise. Our solutions allow our clients to run their organizations more efficiently. Centerlogic is very excited about building a 'Center of Excellence' for ASNA to serve the Northwest."

"Our relationship with ASNA allows us to expand our methodology into new markets," said Rob Fenstermaker, chief information officer for Centerlogic. "The ability to build native applications with the AS/400 through ASNA 's AVR and Visual Studio .NET creates a great opportunity for Centerlogic and ASNA to extend the usefulness of the AS/400 and allow it to still solve complex problems. The 'Total Cost of Ownership' models that we can create for AS/400 and .Net customers using ASNA will be measured in months not years. This allows us to maintain the highest level of capability to the customers that we serve."

"The potential of the ASNA and Centerlogic relationship is just starting to be realized," says Martin Gossen, vice president of business alliances for ASNA. "Centerlogic and ASNA have been focused on developing a new market for ASNA technologies. We have a number of early success stories that will be defined when our .Net product is generally available." The response to the joint marketing efforts that ASNA and Centerlogic have initially rolled out has been very encouraging, says Gossen. "ASNA takes a real stake in our partners' success. Our ability to assist in creating opportunities for Centerlogic, as well as support their application development efforts with the best application development technology available, is the foundation for a lucrative relationship. Our joint abilities provide real, unique capability for the iSeries and .NET."

"The relationship that we have with Centerlogic provides another channel success," Martin continued. "ASNA's primary sales and marketing focus is to continue to build partnerships with like-minded firms to solve the most pressing business issues that face our clients. The vertical and solutions focus that is created out of our third-party relationships allows our customers to have unmitigated success with our joint solutions."
