ECi, which acquired ERP vendor Macola last year, has made another acquisition relevant to their Manufacturing Division, purchasing Vineyardsoft, whose KnowledgeSync product was already being used by Macola and every other member of the Division. Vineyardsoft sold entirely through channels, and the plan is to expand those channels further.
FileCloud has been selling their Enterprise File Sync and Sharing Solution mainly direct, and through larger MSPs who do their own hosting.
