Cedar Knolls, N.J. (July 22, 2002) Altara, the accounting software reseller formerly known as DMS Technology Solutions, has added its second new business and location since late last year, by merging with Enterprise Resource Group, a Sacramento, Calif.-based reseller of Microsoft Business Solutions' Great Plains products.

The merger brings Altara, based in Cedar Knolls, N.J., to 50 employees total, and expands its Great Plains expertise.  The company also handles Microsoft's Solomon products and Best Software's Best Enterprise Suite.

Altara established a Minneapolis office late last year by hiring Scott Boedigheimer, a former Microsoft/Great Plains product practice leader for Larson Allen, Weishair & Co., a regional CPA firm in that city.

Greg Kaeser, co-founder of Enterprise Resource Group, will serve as Altara's chief executive, responsible for acquisitions, accounting, legal, and human resources. Helene Cole, founder of DMS, will be president, responsible for business corporate relationships, sales and marketing.
