iTech to Resell CODA Financials for IBM i
November 16, 2010 Alex Woodie
CODA Financials is a collection of accounting software that has been in use for more than 30 years. The software, which today is developed in Java, offers deeper and more sophisticated accounting functionality than the financial modules commonly found in ERP suites, according to UNIT4 CODA executives. The Manchester, New Hampshire, company attributes about 30 percent of its revenue from sales to IBM i customers, and touts its capability to run natively on the platform as a big plus.
“We see a real need for a native, best-of-class financial applications on the [IBM] i platform,” said Pete Massiello, president of iTech Solutions, which is based in Danbury, Connecticut. “Our goal is to provide a complete solution which combines UNIT4 CODA’s financial application expertise with our proficiency installing, managing and supporting [IBM] i technical environments.” (Massiello is also president of the COMMON user group).
Steve Pugh, CEO of UNIT4 CODA, says the company is delighted to work with iTech Solutions. “iTech has a longstanding and well-earned reputation serving the i community,” he says in a press release. “We believe there will be a surge in demand for more cost effective and modern financial applications on the [IBM] i not only as a result of the current economic situation, but also because of the cost effectiveness of the IBM Power7 processor-based systems introduced recently by IBM.”
