Socius Accepts Accounting and Association Software Group as an Affiliate in the Microsoft Dynamics Master VAR Program

Socius, a leading provider of business management solutions and a Microsoft Dynamics Master VAR, has expanded its presence in Northern California by accepting the Sacramento-area Microsoft Dynamics practice, Accounting and Association Software Group (AASG), into their national Affiliate network.

In October 2011, Microsoft Dynamics established the Master VAR program with the intention of building mutually beneficial business relationships within the Microsoft Dynamics reseller channel.  Socius was selected as one of three Master VARs in the US and has since been building a nation-wide group of Sales Affiliate organizations who continue to sell to and service their existing customers as agents of Socius and with the support of Socius’ business development processes, marketing efforts, brand recognition, and Gold Certified status in the Microsoft Partner Network.

“It is a privilege to welcome AASG as a Socius Affiliate,” said Ken Ledyard, Socius’ Director of Marketing.  “Having AASG on board strengthens our well-established presence in California which enables us to provide effective and affordable business management solutions to even more organizations on the west coast, and beyond.”

AASG has been providing sales, installation, training and support of Microsoft Dynamics GP (formerly Great Plains software) since 1992.  AASG has built a strong, award-winning reputation for superior knowledge, performance and expertise in the mid-sized business and membership-based organization community.

“Much like Socius, at AASG we have built our business on providing experience-based services with integrity,” said Pilar Archer, President of AASG.   “With such a common foundation, I am certain that our partnership with Socius will have tremendous benefits for both of our businesses and, most importantly, for our clients.”

“The affiliation between Accounting and Association Software Group and Socius is welcome news,” said Jeremy Thies, Senior Director, US Microsoft Dynamics Partners.  “Being a Socius Sales Affiliate should provide AASG with additional growth opportunities and enhanced capabilities to better serve their clients.”
