Manufacturers, Distributors and MROs Using Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP Stand to Gain B2B Integration Agility from Latest Clients First and Cleo Partnership

DALLAS, Texas and ROCKFORD, Illinois – October 20, 2020 – Clients First Business Solutions  of Texas, a leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP solutions for manufacturing, distribution and MRO customers, and Cleo, the global leader in ecosystem integration software, today announced a new partnership aimed at helping joint clients rapidly expand their digital ecosystems through a more agile cloud-based B2B integration solution, Cleo Integration Cloud (CIC).  

The partnership stands to benefit companies in the U.S. that utilize Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, or Acumatica Cloud ERP.  Such companies will now have access to CIC, a cloud-based platform for API and EDI integration that extends the reach of an ERP solution by enabling seamless end-to-end integration between other businesses, eCommerce solutions, online marketplaces, and other applications.  

As a perennial early adopter of new technology and one of seven Clients First Business Solutions U.S. locations, Clients First of Texas specializes in providing highly scalable business process solutions for manufacturers, make-to-order job shops, and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) businesses, as well as distribution companies, locally and worldwide  

Michael Conti, Managing Director with Clients First of Texas, said, “Over the years we have implemented many integrations for our clients, but each company’s situation is unique. In Cleo we see a single-platform, highly flexible solution that significantly reduces downtime risk, is easy to adjust to suit the client’s need, and has a far shorter integration development cycle.  As our manufacturing and distribution customers evolve their current ERP environments to embrace an increasing volume of B2B transactions, we are confident this partnership will show its true value.”  

Bob Hoch, Strategic Account Manager, North America Channels for Cleo, added, “Cleo is continually expanding its focus on the Microsoft Dynamics ecosystem, and by teaming with Clients First of Texas we can complement their expertise in cloud ERP implementations by sharing the ecosystem integration capabilities of the Cleo Integration Cloud platform.  Through our commitment to the Microsoft Dynamics customer base we look forward to helping our joint customers discover faster time-to-value as their ecosystems expand to include new integration use cases brought on by eCommerce and marketplace channels. Organizations can have the confidence and control over their integration strategy to ensure acceleration of team efficiency, process improvements, and new revenue streams.”
