Acacia Joins AS/400 Custom Server Program

Acacia Technologies (Lisle, Ill.) has joined IBM's AS/400 Custom Server Program. Under terms of the program, AS/400 customers will now be able to buy Acacia solutions pre-installed on new AS/400e servers.

Acacia products that are available for pre-install include PRMS, Acacia's flagship ERP solution; KBM, an ERP solution specifically designed for custom manufacturing; and Warehouse Boss, Acacia's warehouse management system. Acacia becomes the 10th AS/400 ERP vendor to join the Custom Server Program, joining J.D. Edwards, SSA, SAP, Baan, IBS, Infinium, Intentia, JBA and MAPICS.

"The pre-load option offers our clients a way to compress the traditional software installation timeframe," says Ken Ramoutar, VP of worldwide marketing at Acacia. "Quick implementation has always been one of Acacia Technologies' key strengths, and this program enables our clients to implement even faster now."
