Montreal (Quebec), November 17, 2010 – GFI Solutions Group (GFI Group), a leading Quebec provider of IT products and services, has been given two prestigious honours from Sage North America for the 2010 financial year: GFI Group subsidiary Fortsum Business Solutions has been named to the President’s Circle and the Million Dollar Club. The firm is the only Quebec company to join the Club this year. GFI Group remains the number one software integrator in Quebec, and the number three integrator in North America.
The President’s Circle is composed of the top-performing companies to integrate such Sage Business Solutions (SBS) products as Sage Accpac ERP. The Million Dollar Club is made up of companies whose revenue from the sale and integration of Sage products has surpassed the million-dollar mark at the close of the 2010 financial year.
“This is the third consecutive year in which the President’s Circle is welcoming Fortsum Business Solutions, our partner specializing in Sage Accpac solution integration,” says Paul Johnson, EVP Sales at Sage Business Solutions. “It’s a pleasure be re-honouring a business partner which has again distinguished itself through its sustained efforts to meet our clients’ needs this year.”
“We are extremely proud to have been awarded this distinction for 2010, especially in light of an economic situation which has been, at the very least, difficult,” says François Paré, vice-president ERP at Fortsum Business Solutions. “Our experts have successfully guided their clients toward the Accpac ERP solution best suited to each client’s activity. This has allowed us to remain a leader in terms of sales and business development vis-à-vis our partner Sage for a third year in a row.”
