Sage Business Solutions has appointed Irish-based Enbu Consulting as a Sage CRM business partner in Australia.
The appointment follows a distribution agreement between the two companies which has enabled Enbu Consulting to provide Sage CRM add-on modules and consulting services to Sage business partners in Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji.
Enbu Consulting will now become a Sage CRM partner in Australia in its own right providing local Sage partners and users with even greater access to Sage CRM solutions, consultancy and services.
The company is also now in the process of establishing an office in Sydney and recruiting new sales and technical consultants to service local customers.
This will enable it to provide expertise in CRM implementation while both complementing and supplementing existing A/NZ partner offerings.
Sage Business Solutions managing director, Mike Lorge, said Enbu Consulting’s entry into the Australian market was testament to the flourishing market momentum and overall demand which his company is seeing for Sage CRM locally.
“We look forward to the benefit which their knowledge and skills gained through a global ten year relationship with Sage globally will now provide to Australian businesses.”
According to a company statement, Enbu Consulting’s growth over the past decade has been based on the development of consulting services and Sage CRM add-on modules which integrate seamlessly with Sage to help businesses manage key functional tasks such as time and billing; resource scheduling and management; call management; customer service and contract management.
Enbu’s Webservice Framework for Sage ERP X3 and Sage CRM Integration, due to be released later this year in Australia, addresses an increasing demand for Sage ERP X3 integration into Sage CRM.Read more: INSIGHTS 2011: Sage Business Solutions inks partnership with Macquarie Telecom

Enbu Consulting managing director, Fran Meggs, said, having recently expanded the company's relationship with Sage in the US, Africa and Singapore, she saw the Australian market as a major new business revenue opportunity where it could resell Sage CRM and provide services in its own right.
“At the same time, we are coming into the market to embrace the existing partner channel and help everyone drive additional business," she said.
"We also believe there are major opportunities in Australia for ongoing support and maintenance contracts which will enable us to create long-term, value-added relationships."Read more: Sage ERP X3 gets Gartner ERP magic quadrant nod
