- OBS to spearhead a major distribution and localization of Openbravo leading open source business solutions in the UK and Ireland -
Barcelona (Spain) and London (UK), Dublin (Ireland) - November 28th, 2013 - Openbravo, the leading web-based open source business management solutions provider, has once again underlined its commitment to international growth, by confirming Open Business Solutions Ltd (OBS) as its main distributor and localization partner for Openbravo products and services in the UK and Ireland.
Open Business Solutions Ltd., a software provider and consultancy that specializes in the needs of SME’s, will become an Openbravo Master Distributor (OMD). In this role as the OMD for the UK and Ireland markets, OBS will recruit and work with resellers and companies that will develop further verticalizations, software extensions and versions of Openbravo business solutions. This will uncover new opportunities within the market, building on Openbravo’s strong localization with software that is market-ready - for example user-friendly and configured for the UK and Irish markets.
Chris Smith, Director of Open Business Solutions ltd., said:“In the UK and Ireland the ERP market is ready for a new fresh approach to business systems with many mature implementations reaching end-of-life and we also see tremendous growth in the entry-level sector. Openbravo provides open-source business solutions that are both modern and affordable and as such, offer a great new and economic option for buyers. At OBS, we can offer not only the best software with Openbravo but also world-class consulting and development services to our reseller partners, lowering risk and enhancing the opportunity for such partners to grow with us. A strong partnership agreement like the one between ourselves and Openbravo underpins this and offers security and strength to our customers.”
Marco de Vries, CEO for Openbravo, said:“This is an excellent partnership that will provide a strong foundation for Openbravo and Open Business Solutions Ltd. users and partners in the UK and Irish markets. One of the key strengths of Openbravo is our determination to expand into new markets, championing innovative business solutions. To be successful we consider there is no substitute for a local team of expert consultants who combine extensive consulting experience with in-depth product knowledge. Together with OBS we are very well positioned to help businesses in the UK and Ireland deploy innovative, comprehensive and flexible business solutions at a fraction of the cost of proprietary software.“
