Tribridge, which carries all four Dynamics ERP packages, has stellar credentials. The Tampa, Fla.-based reseller was named 2015 U.S. Microsoft Dynamics Outstanding Partner of the Year at the Worldwide Partner Conference this month. The business was the top global VAR in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013 and the top U.S. reseller in 2007.

A couple of months ago, I had an involved conversation with someone from Columbus, the Danish Dynamics reseller, about the impact of Interdyn BMI on the company's financials. This week's webcast of results left no doubt. CEO Thomas Honorè pointed to areas in which Minneapolis-based BMI, purchased by Columbus in February, was a major factor. A 15-percent increase in consulting revenue was "largely driven by Interdyn BMI in the U.S.," he said. Overall, Columbus had net profit after tax of about $3.9 million, an increase of 47.9 percent from the first half of 2014.
