TOWCESTER/LUTON, October 15 2010 - Glovia International Ltd., a subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited and a leading provider of extended ERP solutions for discrete manufacturers, announced today a partnership with Webcontrol Ltd. Following this new partnership Webcontrol will sell, implement and support the leading edge glovia G2 ERP solution throughout the UK.

Webcontrol carried out a thorough analysis of the ERP systems in the marketplace. The criteria that they were looking for was extremely demanding. "Our years of experience of implementing ERP systems combined with our 10 years specialist internet skills gave us the ideal background to evaluate modern ERP systems. We knew what was needed in terms of comprehensive manufacturing functionality and we also knew what was needed, to be future proofed and able to take advantage of emerging internet and integration technologies," said David Marshall - Managing Director at Webcontrol Ltd. "Glovia met all criteria that we considered to be essential in today's market. glovia G2 has evolved from the Chess ERP system that was first released back in 1990 thus limiting the risk of untried and untested software," Marshall concluded.

At the other end of the partnership, Glovia International welcomes the years of experience in discrete manufacturing and knowledge of the UK market for extended ERP solutions that Webcontrol brings. "Partnering with Webcontrol allows Glovia to expand further in the UK, thus creating an additional revenue stream," said Jim Errington - Managing Director EMEA with Glovia International. "Working with Webcontrol enables Glovia to broaden the success of our glovia G2 system. We can now multiply the potential of our solutions to meet and exceed manufacturers' business needs for higher value, complex solution services. It's really a win-win situation." Errington added.

To kick off this newly formed partnership, Webcontrol are hosting a free seminar at their headquarters at the Caswell Science and Technology Park in Towcester on October 27th.  On the agenda will be demonstrations of the glovia G2 ERP system as well as the Webcontrol catalogue of products.
