As TS is more than aware, there are times when you wish the ground would open and swallow you up. This was definitely the case last week when Microsoft Great Plains chief executive Lorne Borgal was explaining the importance of his companies reseller channel following the loss of Deloitte & Touche as a client. Borgal was suggesting despite the loss of its third biggest reseller, other leading resellers were compensating for the loss. Fine, or at least until asked who was its leading reseller.
A flustered Borgal could not remember the name of the company for a full five minutes. For anyone interested the company is Advantage – and Lorne, in case anyone asks, your boss goes by the name of Bill Gates.
