Tribridge Expands Microsoft Dynamics™ CRM Capabilities with Acquisition of Productive Gap    

TAMPA, Fla. and Austin, Texas -- (March 5, 2008) – Tribridge (http://www.tribridge.com), a Microsoft consulting firm with offices across the United States, has acquired Austin-based Productive Gap (http://www.productivegap.com), a leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics CRM products, services and solutions; with the acquisition effective March 1, 2008.     

“The launch of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 makes this acquisition particularly timely, as it heightens the demand for dedicated, experienced Microsoft Dynamics CRM consultants who understand the potential and applications of the software,” says Tony DiBenedetto, Tribridge chairman and CEO. “Incorporating Productive Gap into Tribridge’s operations allows us to increase our penetration in this rapidly growing market and supports our vision to be regarded as the national Microsoft Dynamics experts.”  He adds that deployment of CRM systems nationwide has doubled in each of the past two years.

Spun off in January 2007 from Onsite Computer Solutions, Productive Gap and its team members had been developing, consulting and delivering on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM     business platform since its beta release in 2002.  Productive Gap Co-founder Ed Benson, master certified in CRM, joins Tribridge’s CRM division as a senior manager. 

“Our association with Tribridge will allow us to offer clients a much broader range of products and access to a highly respected Microsoft consulting team,” says Benson.  “We are pleased to join Tribridge because of the marketing support they can provide our intellectual property, the congruence with our corporate culture, their dedication to excellent customer service and their aggressive growth goals.”            

The Productive Gap acquisition is one of a series of Tribridge acquisitions that has resulted in the Firm’s growth to 150 employees with plans for additional expansion this year.  Tribridge was recently named 2007 Microsoft Dynamics U.S. Partner of the Year. Tribridge is headquartered in Tampa, with offices in seven locations across the country.
