Dallas - Sage Software's top reseller in North America for the past two years, Management Information Services Inc., also known as MIS Group, abruptly shut down July 7. The firm had ranked No. 10 on SourceMedia's VAR 100 list, with $25.3 million in revenue in 2008.

"As a result of the current economic crisis, the lack of available credit, and market circumstances beyond our control, we are not able to be viable as a business," said CEO Robert Muir.

Blytheco, a large, high-volume Sage reseller, has since hired several of MIS Group's top consultants and, at press time, said that it intended to hire additional former MIS staff.
