Polaris Business Solutions

10 Years

I am incredibly grateful and excited to announce that Polaris Business Solutions is celebrating its 10th anniversary this February.  A decade is a long time, especially for a small business in the tech world.  Obviously we could not have been successful without the great and loyal customers we have been fortunate to work with over the years – some have been with us since the beginning.  It has also been a privilege to work very closely with several of our vendors towards our mutual goals.  And as any small business owner will tell you, they can’t succeed without their friends and family by their side – to help you through the lows and to celebrate the highs.

I am happy to say we are close to making some big announcements over for the next year that I believe will better help Polaris provide you with the high level of Dynamics SL and Acumatica support that you have come to expect from us over the years.  The ERP world is changing fast and we are excited about the changes and opportunities to come.

Thank you for the 10 years of support, I feel fortunate to be able to do what I love to do.  As we take the next steps towards another 10 years, we hope you will come along for the ride.

Sincerely,

Todd Delaney

Why Acumatica Makes Even More Sense After the NetSuite Acquisition Announcement

On July 28th Oracle announced plans to acquire NetSuite for $9.3 billion in cash.  This didn’t come as a complete surprise as Larry Ellison, Oracle’s chairman, is the single largest shareholder of NetSuite and Oracle is aggressively trying to increase their cloud-based revenue.  For NetSuite, a merger, in theory, could make sense for a company that has never made a GAAP profit in any quarter or year in its existence, and according to their last 10-k filing “may not achieve profitability in the future“.
