MS Great Plains to challenge SME market

Microsoft Great Plains has today confirmed its intention to move into the SME market, currently dominated by Newcastle-based software giant Sage.

Speaking at Softworld, Adrian Hobbs, UK managing partner for Microsoft Great Plains, said the company was focusing on the mid-market and the medium enterprise market, but did not rule out moving into the SME market at a later stage.

‘In the US we have been extremely successful in this [the SME] arena. We will see a similar move into this market, but not imminently, as we are focusing on driving our core business here,’ Hobbs said.

‘We believe there is a huge market to gain.’
