NAPERVILLE, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/12 -- Sikich LLP, a leading accounting and advisory firm, announced its merger with Streamline Systems, a Microsoft Dynamics AX Value Added Reseller (VAR), in Denver, Colorado. This merger will round out Sikich's Microsoft Dynamics Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) practice and put Sikich in the unique position of offering the complete Microsoft Dynamics product line comprised of Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics SL. Both firms share the Microsoft ERP Gold Competency, which demonstrates best-in-class expertise within Microsoft's marketplace, and is a distinction given to only the top 1 percent of Microsoft partners worldwide that have attained an outstanding degree of proficiency. This designation gives customers the confidence that Sikich has the skills, expertise and resources to deploy financial management systems that solve customer problems and improve performance.
The merger with Streamline Systems furthers Sikich's commitment to delivering the best ERP software systems to both the mid-market and enterprise customers. "The addition of Microsoft Dynamics AX to our product offerings will now give us the opportunity to bring a new generation of ERP software to our customers," said Jeff Rudolph, Partner-in-Charge of Technology at Sikich. "Microsoft Dynamics AX represents a generational shift in business software, delivering new levels of capability, unsurpassed agility, and industry-operational functionality."
"This partnership also brings together a great team of ERP specialists that will help our firm continue to develop innovative service offerings that not only help our clients succeed today but also set the path for long-term, sustainable success." Rudolph went on to state, "Streamline Systems' mature Microsoft Dynamics AX practice and its depth of experience in the manufacturing industry will be a perfect complement to Sikich's existing offerings."
Streamline Systems' manufacturing expertise is evidenced in its AMR Advanced Industry Certification for Discrete Manufacturing with Microsoft Dynamics AX. AMR Research and Microsoft Dynamics launched the certification system to enable partners to demonstrate industry expertise. Streamline Systems was the first Microsoft Dynamics AX partner to receive this designation.
Streamline Systems shares in the excitement of this new venture. Al Galinot, Managing Partner of the Microsoft Dynamics AX Practice at Streamline Systems, says, "Our customers require more than just the Microsoft Dynamics AX implementation services we offer at Streamline. They are looking for a partner to provide the Microsoft technology platforms that coexist with Microsoft Dynamics AX -- like SharePoint, SQL Reporting Services, .NET Development, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Managed Services and the Cloud. And by merging with Sikich, we can offer all of this and more!"
Galinot added, "We are incredibly excited about this move. The overwhelming reason we selected Sikich is that the firm is focused on delivering value to its clients and superior service. Sikich has the same core values that we have and by bundling the abilities of our two companies, we will be able to provide our customers a total solution."
The merger will see the integration of Streamline Systems' team members and customer base into Sikich's national operations, supporting the firm's growth strategy and further cementing their place as a top tier IT service provider.
The merger of Sikich and Streamline Systems will operate under the name Sikich.
