Sage Names Marc Scheipe North America President
Sage announced that Marc Scheipe has been appointed president of Sage North America. If the name sounds familiar, it's because Scheipe has been serving as interim president of Sage North America since late last year which we reported here at top-sage-resellers back in October.
Scheipe is an accomplished business leader, with more than 20 years of financial services experience focused on financial management, strategy development, process improvement and sales/operations leadership.
In the official press release, Sage reports that under Scheipe’s leadership, the region hit financial targets and completed the first stages of an ongoing transformation at the company - accomplishments that undoubtedly contributed to his permanent appointment as President.

RKL eSolutions Acquires Sage 100 Partner Baesis, Inc.
The move also bolsters RKL's Sage 100 practice with added manufacturing expertise including Job Ops for Sage 100 - a manufacturing add-on solution for Sage 100 that Baesis specialized in.
Joe Noll, President at RKL eSolutions, says it all results from mutual admiration between the two companies. “In 2013, we started kicking around ideas on how we might work together and formalized a partnership.” Both companies had a strong Sage 100 practice, but each had expertise and focus on different verticals and industries. Noll says, “The more we talked about it, the more we realized we’d be stronger as one team than we would be just working together as alliance partners.”
