Harwinton, CT – January 10, 2006 – Revolution is defined as a drastic change in ideas or practice. As of January 1, 2006 two of Connecticut’s leading Microsoft partners focused on Great Plains financial management applications have joined forces. CAL Business Solutions Inc. (formerly Computer Associates Ltd) of Harwinton, CT has acquired IntelliBridge LLC of Milford, CT. This acquisition has inspired CAL to revolutionize the company – choosing a new name, launching a new website and collateral and literally doubling the size of it’s team.
For more than 20 years, CAL has built a reputation as a leading Microsoft Great Plains partner serving more than 130 clients in a variety of industries. CAL focuses on Great Plains consulting, data conversion, implementation, customization, training, and support as well as writing custom industry specific programs to enhance the functionality of Great Plains as an ERP system. IntelliBridge LLC also focused on Great Plains financial management systems (now called Microsoft Dynamics GP) as well as building practice areas around network infrastructure support and Microsoft SharePoint portal and collaboration tools. Both companies are dedicated to the Microsoft platform and helping customers use technology to solve business challenges.
“Our business has grow rapidly in the past few years and now we have the opportunity to leverage the resources that have made IntelliBridge LLC successful as well. Although our team has doubled in size, we feel that we are gaining complimentary skill sets in every area of the business with very little overlap. I feel confident that our customers will benefit greatly from this expansion,” states George Mackiewicz, owner of CAL Business Solutions. “It truly feels like a revolution that is going to take the company to new heights.”
With the addition of the IntelliBridge team, CAL will continue to focus on Microsoft Dynamics GP and related network infrastructure support and customization. CAL will also explore the Microsoft Information Worker competency which focuses on portal and collaboration tools such as SharePoint. “SharePoint is a hot new tool in the industry driving enormous demand. We really see a synergy between the financial applications and SharePoint. Being able to share and communicate important financial information better throughout the company can have dramatic results,” says Anya Ciecierski, Marketing Manager.
CAL Business Solutions serves companies throughout the United Sates with a strong concentration in Connecticut. This merger will allow increased exposure in the Fairfield and New Haven county markets. CAL Business Solutions looks forward to the new year, one that has already been defined by drastic changes in ideas and practices.
