)-- Two of the Pacific Northwest’s leading Microsoft providers – Fine Solutions and Autonomix – announced today that they are merging, creating the leading provider of Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) Dynamics AX, GP, CRM and Microsoft SharePoint in the Pacific Northwest.
Fine Solutions, the leading Northwest company focused on Microsoft Dynamics (GP and AX), and Autonomix with an expertise in networking infrastructure solutions, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), unified communications, databases, and network management combine with a regional focus that includes clients from Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The merger accelerates both organizations’ go-to-market strategies including Microsoft’s product offerings, such as Dynamics AX, Dynamics GP, Dynamics CRM, SharePoint and SQL Server Reporting Services.
The combined company will operate as Fine Solutions. Dan Fine, Managing Partner of Fine Solutions, will become Chief Executive Officer. Erika Colson, CEO of Autonomix, will assume responsibility as Senior Associate Consultant. Scott Colson will take over Practice Director for CRM and Network Management.
"This combination offers tremendous synergies as Fine Solutions and Autonomix have very complementary strengths," said Dan Fine, Fine Solution's Managing Partner. "Fine Solutions has quickly grown to be the market leader in the Pacific Northwest with Microsoft Dynamics AX, ERP and reporting. Autonomix is a leader in the Pacific Northwest with Dynamics CRM, SharePoint and network administration. Both companies have a very strong focus on building lasting customer relationships and share the same core business values. The timing couldn’t be better."
Fine Solutions will employ over 25 staff and grow to 50 in the next three years. The company will maintain headquarters in Lynnwood, WA at the juncture of Interstate I-5 and I-405. This will give the company easy access to clients north, south and east.
“Joining forces is a natural next step for Autonomix and Fine Solutions,” said Erika Colson, CEO of Autonomix. “We have referred business to one another for years, because we have complementary service offerings and trust the other to serve our customers well. While working together on some recent projects, we realized just how closely our company values and long-term goals align. Customers will benefit from our combined expertise, our complete set of technology solutions, and our shared commitment to our customers’ success.”
