Microsoft Dynamics NAV Partners Targeting Customers of Struggling CDC Software’s Ross ERP
In October, CDC Corp., parent company of business-management software maker CDC Software, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to "facilitate a restructuring, which is designed to restore the company to long-term financial health." Additionally, both organizations have been suspended from NASDAQ.
Now, some Microsoft Dynamics NAV partners in competitive verticals are spotting opportunities to offer a more attractive roadmap to ERP customers of beleaguered CDC Software.
CDC Software is a collection of software products assembled through acquisition and OEM partnership relationships, including ties to Microsoft Dynamics ERP. They have purchased Dynamics-related firms in the past like c360, and they became a GP and AX partner. But they have their own ERP product acquired in 2003 from Ross Systems, now called CDC Ross ERP.
Marc DiGiorgio, vice president of JustFoodERP, whose food industry ERP solution is based on Dynamics NAV, believes CDC Software customers may be shaken by the series of events surrounding their vendor.
