SAP and Citrix announced this week they have agreed to co-market a software bundle that leverages both companies’ product strengths to provide comprehensive, easy to deploy, integrated applications for small and mid-sized businesses (SMB).
The bundle will include SAP Business One with Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server for businesses with up to 250 users.
Business One provides SMBs with business management solutions that are as integrated and comprehensive as systems designed for much larger businesses, from general ledger and banking, to customer service, sales and inventory, according to the companies’ joint statement. To this, Citrix’s MetaFrame Presentation Server adds the ability to deploy, upgrade and manage Business One solutions centrally, thus simplifying systems management and application maintenance.
The bundle will initially be delivered through a network of qualified channel partners in North America, the companies said.
