Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

US-based Lilly Software Associates has bought out its UK reseller, Utopia Systems, for an undisclosed sum as part of its "orchestrated" move into the European market. The tie-up has come as no surprise to industry watchers since the Hertfordshire-based company only dealt with LSA products. What's more, LSA UK is already reaping the benefits of the arrangement and is already actively recruiting new staff as the parent company ploughs investment into its UK operation. "With this UK office, we're positioned to be a force in the European market," said LSA CEO Dick Lilly speaking publicly about the deal. The company is positioning the move as the last piece in the jigsaw in LSA's march into Europe. The first was to equip VISUAL Manufacturing, LSA's flagship ERP/APS software, to handle European currency and accounting practices. With revenues of £27 million, LSA is ranked just outside the top one hundred fastest growing companies in the US according to Inc Magazine. LSA produces VISUAL Manufacturing, a Windows-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Manufacturing Execution System (MES), and Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software package that manages total supply chain management. ® Click for more stories Click for story index
