FSN Press Coverage: Mid-Market ERP Vendors Spread their Wings

The paucity of mid-market resellers geared up to serving ambitious medium sized enterprises appears to be a gaping hole. Cambridge OnLine a top reseller of Microsoft Dynamics Nav, is one of small band of re-sellers that recognises it is time to call change in the way that services are delivered to mid-sized companies that operate internationally.
