Jack’s career began doing application and sales support for Solomon Software- the firm that created Dynamics SL. Jack was promoted to regional manager when the firm moved him from Philadelphia to Chicago in 1988.

Jack has an honors degree in accounting from Penn State (1984) and passed the CPA exam while at Boyer & Associates.

Thanks for this post. It is good information for partners, customers, and partners to be aware of, when considering how to extend their GP solutions.

It's good to hear from other's experience and perspective on these options.

PowerObjects should have more than 200 people at their PowerConnect Dynamics CRM event here in Minneapolis on October 5th. This arrangement helps us focus on ERP and provides a source of referrals for both of us. www.boyerassoc.com/blog
