Please realize that I did not write my response to the original question to
bash any Strategic Partners.  I replied to make the customer aware that ,
even though MAPICS does not want you to know about it, there are other
solutions for products that may compete with what they offer.  EAX is one of
those products.  I am sure if Dale at FFT had seen EAX before COM_Net, he
may be praising their products as well.

But now that the door is open regarding Strategic Partners, just because
their products are "certified", it does not mean that they may have the best
solution to offer.  The affiliate is going to recommend a product that will
give them the best bang for their buck (Commission).  It also does not mean
that the Strategic Partner will be one forever (this is not the case with
Lexel since the have many products).  Just ask anyone who purchased MMA from
Silvon, Wisdom or the MAPICS Portal to name a few.  Their companies were
once Strategic Partners, their products were sold and eventually the
partnership was broken.

For those customers expecting to see these other great 3rd party products at
the upcoming conference - unless the vendor is a Certified Solution Partner
($$) - you will not be privy to experience those products at the Tech expo.

Eric

P.S. I hope I did not open up any old wounds with the MMA, Wisdom or Portal
comment.
