Bill Pollock, the bright and wildly successful owner of Optimation, Inc., a high level MES integrator, has been acquiring other integrators for years– and then inheriting the issues of how to integrate those disparate systems with his own.
Bill introduced me to Kelly Burns with whom he owns Green-Kelly LLC. Green-Kelly (there is no Green–green is the color of money) is a “business procss outsourcing” company aimed at small businesses like integrators. For less than $50 per employee per month you can let G-K do your accounting, your Human Resources, your T&E, your CRM system, etc. When I ws running my rep/distributor/integrator company in the 1970s and 1980s I would have killed for a system like this!
