Oct 8, 2010 What you want... When you want it Volume 10.2
Company Announcment

October 8, 2010 - PVX Plus Technologies is pleased to announce it will be assuming all ongoing sales, development and support of the ProvideX product line for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) effective immediately. Sage, which owns the ProvideX intellectual property, will continue to develop and support the language for use with its own products. We are looking forward to the opportunities that this acquisition brings to the table, for both the ProvideX and PxPlus customers.

By consolidating the development and planning into a single organization, PVX Plus is poised to fully focus on protecting the investments made by developers in their business applications. This consolidation will also allow us to maximize the potentials of the latest technologies which will greatly benefit our current and future customers.

We would like to take this time thank all of our loyal customers for trusting us with your business for the past five years. Now, join us in welcoming the ProvideX customers. Together we will make a stronger force in the programming community.

Questions & Answers:

What’s happening with ProvideX?

Sage is licensing the rights to develop the ProvideX language for the non-Sage applications to PVX Plus Technologies. Sage will continue to own the ProvideX intellectual property and is continuing to develop ProvideX for use with its products.

Why are these changes being made?

This change benefits both non-Sage ProvideX customers and Sage MAS 90 and 200 customers alike. Non-Sage ProvideX customers get the dedicated focus they need, while Sage can continue to focus exclusively on adapting the ProvideX technology to address the specific needs of their MAS 90 and 200 customers.

What happens if I was a Sage ProvideX customer?

Sage ProvideX clients and contracts will not be affected by this change. If you worked through a dealer or distributor, all of your contacts remain the same. Otherwise, if you purchased directly form Sage, the only major change is that all future communications, orders, and support queries should be directed to PVX Plus Technologies, Ltd.

What does this mean to me as a developer of a ProvideX base application?

Any of your ProvideX development needs will be now handled directly through PVX Plus. Where as, any development work related to a Sage MAS 90 or 200 products, will continue to be supported and managed through Sage.

Who will be leading the future ProvideX development?

Michael King, president and founder of PVX Plus Technologies, Ltd., and the original developer of ProvideX and PxPlus is ready for the challenge. In the past 26 years, Mike has actively worked in the business basic community, growing the client base and continually improving the development language with numerous new features and tools for the application developer.

Will there be different versions of ProvideX code now that it is being supported by two different organizations?

Yes, we believe that over time, you will see differences in the PVX Plus and Sage versions as these two product lines continue to evolve independently.

Who is taking over the ProvideX customers?

Founded in 2005, PVX Plus Technologies, Ltd. is the provider and home of the PxPlus development language and toolkit used by over 1,000 companies worldwide. From its base of operations in Markham Ontario, PVX Plus Technologies provides development and support services for business software application providers and dealers. PVX Plus Technologies is a privately held Canadian (Ontario) corporation owned and operated by Michael F. King, the original developer of ProvideX with over 26 years of experience in the business basic community.
