Aptean Ross ERP, Food & Beverage, Partnership

Alpharetta, GA, March 21, 2017 – Aptean, a leading global provider of mission critical enterprise software solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with established Canadian Value-Added Reseller (VAR), Vokeso. This partnership will play a significant role in broadening Aptean’s presence in Quebec and eastern Canada.

Vokeso will sell and support Aptean’s industry leading process solution, Ross Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). Food and beverage process manufacturers use Ross ERP to streamline operations, quickly bring new products to market, and easily ramp up production, while cutting costs and complying with ever more stringent retailer requirements and federal regulations. This is an audience Vokeso knows well having provided implementation consultation for Ross ERP solutions for more than two decades.

“Expanding our existing relationship and becoming a VAR for Aptean’s solutions is a natural extension for us,” said Sylvain Lafond, president of Vokeso. “Through the years our team has provided support for users of Aptean’s Ross ERP solution, supporting manufacturers with their technical implementation and providing consultative assistance to ensure their on-going success. Aptean’s Ross ERP will help us meet the growing demand for ERP solutions specifically designed for food and beverage manufacturers.”

With Vokeso as its local reseller, Aptean can better serve existing customers in the Canadian market. Further, Aptean can rely on Vokeso’s knowledge and experience with the regulations and processes required for them to successfully conduct business in the region.

“Continuing to grow our food and beverage customer base and better serve our existing customers in Quebec is a priority for Aptean and we now have the partnership to help us be successful in this effort,” said Brad Steger, Aptean Senior Vice President Process ERP and Supply Chain Management Product Group. “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Vokeso and bring their understanding of our ERP technology, the food and beverage manufacturing industry and commitment to quality customer service to our team.”

Vokeso also soon will expand its Aptean offerings beyond Ross ERP to include products like Factory MES, a manufacturing execution system, and AssetPoint EAM, an enterprise asset management solution.
