SSi secures US distribution deal

Christchurch based software company SSi Limited has signed a joint venture distribution deal for its GlobalBake software with Arizona company Datapax.

GlobalBake is an ERP software product for food manufacturing companies.

Sales and marketing director Kerry Glynn says the deal means Datapak will sell GlobalBake to its 2500 sites in the US and Canada as of June 1.

“Datapax are also using GlobalBake to spearhead an aggressive campaign into new accounts.”

Glynn says the deal has the potential to double SSi’s revenue over the next two years.

“This agreement gives us what every Kiwi software exporter wants – a distribution partner with a large customer base, credible brand and implementation and support capabilities.”

According to Glynn, SSi’s performance in North America has helped it achieve the deal.

“In that time we have increased sales by 100 percent and secured customers in 10 US states and Canada, including some high profile, high volume food manufacturers.”

The deal will also help the company strengthen and expand its New Zealand and Australian operations.

Glynn says there are exciting opportunities in the US, even with the economic downturn.

“Solutions offered in the food manufacturing sector are typically horizontal business applications rather than purpose-built software products like those our joint venture will offer.”
