Tectura Launches Global Strategic Alliance Program

Redwood City, Calif. – January 22, 2007 - Tectura, a leading global provider of Microsoft integrated business solutions to mid-market companies, larger enterprises and their divisions, today formally announced the launch of its Tectura Strategic Alliance Program, strengthening its commitment to deliver global business solutions with local service and support. Already with a strong presence of its own in most key markets, Tectura expects that its Strategic Alliance Program will amplify its ability to deeply penetrate certain new and emerging markets, while also fostering closely aligned business relationships with local partners. Tectura selects partners only after thorough research and due diligence, requiring the same level of professionalism, expertise, quality and client care from its alliance partners as it does from its own 70 offices around the world. The resulting benefit to customers is the flexible, manageable and cost effective delivery of solutions to the mid market based on Microsoft’s market-leading products. Initial partners are within Europe, South Africa, and Central America and include AGER Solutions, Allium, Bonair, Brain Force spa, C2A Informatique, GEMMA Systems, IT.integro, IT Soluciones, Manzana Group, NAVAX, Oberdata, Real Consulting, Sonex Sistemos and XAPT. Tectura will continue its search for additional alliance partners over the upcoming months in order to expand its geographic and industry vertical footprint.

“Tectura’s solutions are well suited for the demands of even the largest mid-market companies,” said Jeff Lynn, Chief Operating Officer, Tectura. “Today, as a part of the Tectura Strategic Alliance Program, we can work more closely together with top Microsoft Dynamics™ partners to deliver the most advanced and comprehensive integrated business solutions in a joint effort to fully meet evolving customer needs. Our shared clients will be able to obtain local touch combined with global reach, making this a true win-win-win situation for clients, our alliance partners, and for Tectura.”

A primary goal of the alliance is close collaboration on Microsoft Dynamics implementations to ensure quality, efficiency and success for each client. The alliance is mutually binding and Tectura is committed to exclusively work with each partner for Microsoft Dynamics projects in their respective regions. Likewise, each alliance member will partner with Tectura for international projects in countries where Tectura has an office. This enables Tectura and its alliance partners to share vertical and horizontal solutions, best practices, joint projects and global methodologies. Ultimately, this effort serves to greatly benefit local and international mid-size companies and major divisions in the local geographies.

“Working together with our local alliance partners enables Tectura to fully deliver its offerings within that particular region,” said Vince Castiglione, Vice President of Corporate Development, Tectura. “Combining our partners’ experience with Microsoft Dynamics and their respective areas of expertise across our vertical markets is the perfect complement for Tectura.”

“Microsoft is confident that customers will greatly benefit from Tectura’s Strategic Alliance Program,” said Wim Jansen, Senior Director, Partners, MBS, Microsoft EMEA. “With Tectura’s industry solutions, their vast technical resources located around the globe, and their alliance partners who offer leading local service and support, companies now have greater access to even more powerful Microsoft integrated business management solution offerings.”
