ACCPAC Fuels CRM Growth With Expanding Development Partner Program

My spin: Software vendors know how to make $$$ – partnering is the key. Partnering with resellers to sell their products and partnering with independent software vendors to make 3rd party solutions. ACCPAC International, Inc., a subsidiary of Computer Associates International, Inc. (NYSE:CA) , announced today the availability of more than 50 add-on applications developed by independent software vendors (ISVs) for its ACCPAC CRM(TM) customer relationship management software. More than 70 ISVs have committed to providing enhancement solutions or customizing ACCPAC CRM for specific industries since the ACCPAC CRM Development Partner Program was launched in August 2003. In addition to the more than 50 applications now available that support ACCPAC CRM, many more are in development.
The Intuit Developer Network (IDN) is similar to what ACCPAC is doing.
