New York, NY (April 05, 2007) – Net@Work, a leading provider of integrated business technology solutions, today announced that it has expanded its Sage Pro ERP practice with the acquisition of Apptech, a Connecticut-based consulting firm specializing in Sage Pro ERP sales and support.

Apptech’s two founders will remain in senior positions: Rod Quenneville will serve as Senior Development Specialist and Michael Healy will continue on as Senior Sales Consultant, enhancing Net@Work’s Sage Pro ERP domain expertise.


“As their customers will all attest, Apptech enjoyed a well-deserved reputation for responsive service, knowledgeable support, and business-driven technology solutionsall of which makes Rod, Michael, and their team such a great addition to Net@Work,” said Alex Solomon, Net@Work’s Co-President.

“The acquisition further strengthens our already robust Sage Pro ERP practice, but just as important, gives us a well-positioned “beach head” from which to seamlessly service a broader swath of customers across the Northeast,” said Edward Solomon, Net@Work’s Co-President. “Today’s announcement comes on the heels of several recent acquisitions, all of which underscore our ongoing commitment to providing our customers with easy access to the best consultants and support technicians in the business.”

“Net@Work is one of the region’s most dynamic, full-service VARs, with an especially strong Sage Pro ERP practice,” said Michael Healy, former Apptech President and co-founder. “By integrating Apptech’s domain expertise and business-driven technology consulting, Net@Work will be an even stronger presence across the region, with readily deployable resources. Our customers will receive the same level of support they’ve come to expect, while gaining access to Net@Work’s broader array of network and infrastructure services. Indeed, all organizations across the region stand to benefit, as we can now provide a full complement of affordable, custom-designed solutions under one roof.”
