FRx Poised to Permeate Many More General Ledgers Part Four: Competitors and User Recommendations


With Integration Designer and Forecaster, FRx has taken critical steps forward in creating value for its customers and resellers. FRx should expend the marketing effort required to insure all its customers, prospects, and affiliates fully understand the value proposition of its products.

Financial Reporting, Planning, and Budgeting As Necessary Pieces of EPM Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations


Although CPM (aka EPM) starts with strong financial management, it will eventually extend beyond financial planning to almost all areas of corporate activity.

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Three: Product Differentiators


Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the purest in terms of a standard Microsoft technology stack, and without any proprietary additions. Furthermore, its sharp focus solely on Microsoft technology from ground up, coined in ''the power of one'' motto (one OS platform - Windows XP/NT/2000, one database platform - MS SQL Server, one development environment - MS Visual Basic, etc.), also presents an attractive, risk-adverse option for penny-pinching mid-market customers. Solomon IV has consequently been very competitive in speed of implementation, feasibility of customization, total cost of ownership (TCO), and price/performance ratio.
