Following Quadrant Software's recent acquisition of BCD Software, the vendors have worked together to establish a unified Channel and Strategic Alliance Group.

The resulting Business Partner Program will better assist partners in maximizing, modernizing and mobilizing their customer's investment in the IBM i with RPG and PHP web applications, web GUIs for existing green screens and new RPG applications, mobile applications, web-based reports, automatic report beautification and distribution and cloud-based solutions.

Mike Crowley, a BCD sales rep for over 12 years, is now the dedicated point of contact for all BCD and Quadrant partners. His knowledge of our solutions and his commitment to helping our partners succeed is unparalleled," says Jeff.
Under the BCD-Quadrant Business Partner Program, partners can expect:
- The ability to resell both Quadrant and BCD solutions so they can further expand their IBM i modernization offerings.
