US ERP vendor Nextworld has moved into Europe with the signing of Steltix as its first European reseller. Netherlands-headquartered Steltix will sell Nextworld's solutions across Europe and South Africa.
Steltix operates worldwide with ten offices and a wide customer base. Their consulting group will play an “important role” in Nextworld product development strategy, said the Denver, Colorado-headquartered supplier. Steltix operates a product and service development centre in South Africa.
Kylee McVaney, Nextworld CEO, said: “Steltix's breadth of ERP knowledge and depth of industry expertise coupled with our advanced technology make this a strategic partnership for us both.
“They are a crucial element to expanding into the European market and we are thrilled to sign them as our first European and South African reseller.”
Jan Jaap Weerstand (pictured), CEO of Steltix, said: “We have been looking for an ERP company that is innovating on the latest advancements in the industry. Nextworld is the only one building a full suite of enterprise solutions from the ground up on a no-code development platform. “Their state-of-the-art architecture insulates customers from rapid technology changes and keeps them ahead of what's next.”
Nextworld offers a suite of applications for manufacturing, distribution and financial companies. The firm was founded by Ed McVaney, one of the co-founders of JD Edwards before it was acquired by PeopleSoft in 2003 (which was then acquired by Oracle in 2005). McVaney recently died and the firm led by his daughter Kylee. Germany's Centric IT Solutions recently sold its Oracle JD Edwards business unit to Steltix Deutschland, an Oracle Platinum Partner. Centric mainly specialises in SAP deployments.
