NEW ORLEANS, LA — July 30, 2015 — Net at Work, a leading provider of integrated business technology solutions and a top Sage business partner, today announced that it has acquired AXIS Integrated Solutions (AXIS), a consultant and reseller of Sage 300 and Sage CRM serving businesses across St. Louis, Tulsa and Kansas City.

“I’ve known Kelly for many years, having served with her on Sage’s Business Partner Advisory Council, and have long admired her leadership and the depth and breadth of her Sage 300 expertise,” said Alex Solomon, Net at Work’s co-President. “Kelly is truly one of the most influential people in the Sage ecosystem and is the final piece in our Sage 300 ‘dream team.’ “This gives us an unmatched ability to implement complete business solutions and position our customers — as well as our partners — to succeed in today’s ever-changing business landscape.”
Under Kelly’s leadership, AXIS was a member of both the Sage Chairman’s Club and Sage President’s Circle and garnered a number of industry awards, receiving recognition as an Accounting Technology Pacesetter and a listing among the VAR 100.
“I’ve watched Eddie and Alex grow their firm successfully and gracefully, always advocating for their customers and partners, both big and small,” said Kelly Hummel, Net at Work’s new Sage 300 Practice Director. “I’ve always appreciated their best practice approach and implementation methodologies, as they’re very much in sync with ours. We’re all very excited to be part of the Net at Work team and look forward to making this the strongest Sage 300 practice in the industry.”
