News and Analysis
There is no indication that Netherlands-based Qurius, a Dynamics reseller, plans any move to the American market. But its recent establishment of an ISV arm is worth mentioning since this is an important direction for resellers. The company has established QIPtree to develop software on the Dynamics platform.
Founded as an intended spin-off, QIPtree reminds me of ToIncrease, the development arm of Columbus, formerly known as Columbus IT Partner, which does operate in this country. QIPtree hit the market with more than 20 products that are designed for industry sectors with titles such as Service Management, IT Business, Transportation and Semi-Process Industry. The company also fields more generic ones that include Quality Management, Electronic Banking, Invoice Workflow and Inventory Status. A third category encompasses products that resellers can utilize in developing and connecting applications, such as Testing, Handheldconnect and Packtax. All of these are preceded by QIP4- as the proper name, but that would burden this report. European resellers have been scrambling to reposition themselves because of the drag the debt crisis has on the economy and I would assume this is such a response.
