U.K.-based Differentia Consulting partners with Global Software


Global Software, Inc., provider of real-time spreadsheet financial and enterprise data analytics tools and the author of the Global Data Analytic Suite to BPCS, Infinium, MOVEX and J.D. Edwards, announced that Berkshire, U.K. - based Differentia Consulting Ltd. has signed on as a reseller of the Global Software Spreadsheet Server for J.D. Edwards application.

Under the terms of the partnership agreement, Differentia Consulting Ltd. is permitted to resell the licensing of Spreadsheet Server for J.D. Edwards along with Executive DASH™ in the United Kingdom. Differentia Consulting Ltd. will also provide consulting/installation application and technical services in addition to providing its newly signed customers with a premium level of support of the software.

Spencer Kupferman, Vice President, Corporate Affairs for Global Software, Inc. states, "Global continues to expand its reseller channel into viable markets like the United Kingdom. This market, like many others we have propagated Spreadsheet Server and Executive DASH into, is starving for high-value, functionally rich solutions that offer true 'real-time' access from within the familiar confines of a Microsoft Excel environment. The ability to then drill-down on these balances through to the sub-systems (ala Spreadsheet Server) takes the meaning of analysis to a whole new level. The combination of all of the above, gives our resellers a stark competitive advantage in their respective markets."

Adrian Parker, Managing Director for Differentia Consulting Ltd., "The Spreadsheet Server and Executive DASH applications are long overdue in the J.D. Edwards/PeopleSoft community in the United Kingdom. We are thrilled to be able to provide our customers with these solutions. In partnering with Global Software, Inc. we are assured of a software company's commitment to addressing the needs of the greater J.D. Edwards user community in the present as well as in the future."
