New York, NY – April 26, 2013 – Net at Work, a leading provider of integrated business technology solutions and a top Sage Software business partner, today announced the formal launch of its Nonprofit Practice with the acquisition of Huckstep & Associates (Huckstep), providers of accounting, HR and software implementation services to nonprofit and governmental organizations.
In addition to providing industry-leading support for Sage Nonprofit (formerly Sage MIP) and increased service and consultation resources for Sage HRMS, the acquisition will give Huckstep’s clients (over 350 nonprofits and public sector agencies in 35 states) access to Net at Work’s full complement of business technology solutions and IT consulting services, including document and enterprise content management, custom web development, eCommerce, marketing automation, and infrastructure-related services.
“For years we’ve worked with a number of prominent nonprofits, and have been waiting for the right opportunity — which is to say, the right partner — to establish a dedicated nonprofit practice,” said Alex Solomon, Net at Work’s Co-President. “Jeannie Huckstep and her team bring unmatched expertise in fund accounting, HR, payroll and software implementation, with a deep understanding of the inner workings and needs of nonprofits and government agencies. In addition to providing Huckstep’s sizeable client base with comprehensive business and IT support, we’re now equipped to extend our full complement of services to nonprofits in all niches, including workforce, community action, health care, education, research, and other types of nonprofits.”
“Just about every nonprofit is trying to do more with less in managing fund accounting, time keeping, customer management, and maintaining smooth day-to-day operations,” said Jeannie Huckstep. “Joining Net at Work enables us to expand support for Sage Nonprofit, and provide our customers with a single source for all their business and IT needs. As fellow Sage business partners, we’ve known Net at Work for some time now, and have always been impressed with their high level competency and our shared focus on customer support.”
