ENGLEWOOD, CO. – (December 6, 2011) MBS DEV, a leading enterprise resource planning (ERP)software provider for distributors, wholesalers, and resellers has announced general availability of a hosted product offering for office supply dealers. MBS DEV’s hosted ERP solution contains much of the same rich functionality as a traditional deployment, but uses the convenience of the cloud.
“Enabling MBS DEV’s robust ERP solution for office products dealers for a cloud computing model was driven by our commitment to the Independent Dealer Channel,” said Paul Hesser, chief operating officer, MBS DEV. “Hosted software gives small- and medium-sized businesses an opportunity to exploit a robust e-commerce and ERP solution to develop another competitive edge at an investment level that is appropriate for them.”
“Having our system in the cloud means we get to take advantage of the broad capabilities of MBS DEV and Microsoft Dynamics® AX while retaining control and visibility to IT costs,” said Kirk Ramsdale, president, Cardinal Office Products. “We have been able to extensively leverage the flexibility of MBS DEV to improve our customers’ experiences, particularly in the area of eCommerce.”
The initial introduction of hosted MBS DEV solutions is centered around the company’s innovative suite, which helps streamline business operations in areas including high volume distribution, warehousemanagement, and forecasting.
“We are excited about this cloud offering for office products dealers,” said Hesser, “and we expect that our hosted services will quickly develop into a service that will become an essential resource for distributors in the other markets we serve as well."
