To meet the budgeting needs of mid-size and large companies, Comshare and Microsoft will bundle Comshare BudgetPLUS with Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 database. The bundle will be launched in Microsoft’s Greater Pennsylvania District, which includes Pennsylvania, Delaware, and southern New Jersey. “This joint effort places both Comshare and Microsoft in a very strong leadership position with this innovative bundle of software and database technology specifically packaged for planning, budgeting, management reporting, and analysis on Microsoft SQL Server,” says Larry Kerber, Comshare planning and product marketing vice president. Comshare and its partners will be the solution providers for initial implementation of the budgeting bundle. Microsoft Solution Providers will be invited to participate in the program when it is available nationally.
