Come Join our Chat with Partner webcast on Aug 21 at 11:30 EST


Informix Business Partner Chat – Fitrix ERP Software – Driving Informix sales into growing small and mid-size discrete manufacturing firms through industry-leading Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Date: Aug 21, 2012
Time: 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM (Central Time)
Hosted by: Anita McKeithen (IBM)
Presented by: Jerry Keesee – Director, IBM Informix Database Development (IBM), Mike Barnwell – VP, Sales & Marketing (Fourth Generation Software)

Fourth Generation Software, the makers of Fitrix ERP, has been IBM/Informix business partners for over 20 years, and our software runs exclusively on and drives net-new sales of Informix database and Genero licenses into the SMB discrete manufacturing market that we target. No other software application in the SMB enterprise has the coattails that ERP does. A Fitrix ERP sale firmly positions IBM/Informix products prominently in these growing organizations, and drives additional license sales as they grow.
Our 21-module Fitrix ERP software suite has the feature set required by SMB manufacturers looking for a “real” ERP solution, but costs a fraction of what ERP solutions from Microsoft, Oracle or SAP do. With ERP licensing typically ranging from $1,500 to $3,000 per user, Fitrix leads the industry in price-performance and TCO, and leaves room in the budget for additional IBM software licenses.
Learn how partnering with Fourth Generation can help drive net-new IBM product sales into growing SMB enterprises in the dynamic discrete manufacturing market. Learn more at http://www.fitrix.com.
