North 40 Systems, which provides practice management software, introduced a reseller initiative aimed at building partnerships with CPAs and accounting professionals for its Office Tools Pro product. The Office Tools Pro program offers professionals the opportunity to choose from the Authorized Reseller or the Authorized Trainers program. Office Tools Pro is a practice management package that includes contact management, time and billing, scheduling, document management, due-date reporting and project tracking. The software starts at $299 per user. To become an Authorized Trainer, the reseller must participate in an in-depth, online training session with their Office Tool Pro account manager and complete a certification exam. The annual reseller program fee is $200, but is waived for resellers in their first year. North 40 Systems hope to have approximately 100 authorized resellers and trainers by March 2006. Benefits to CPAs and accounting professionals include: o- Up to 40 percent commission on sales of Office Tools Pro software; o - The annual program fee is waived for resellers during their first year; o - Free support and training for resellers and their customers; o - A quarterly educational newsletter that includes corporate updates, technical tips, upcoming events and company news; and, o - An account manager to support each partner's needs.
