Norcross, GA—January 7, 2007—Equinox Software, Inc, The Evergreen Experts, is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with Alpha-G Consulting, LLC. Equinox and Alpha-G have signed an agreement to facilitate migration of customers choosing to move from Horizon to Evergreen.
"We've done a fair number of migrations from Horizon to other systems," remarked John Craig, Managing Partner of Alpha-G Consulting. "We have always worked to ensure that our clients got the most complete migration we could do. The migration to Evergreen presents some unique challenges that we're excited to take on. Working with Equinox, we believe anyone who chooses to migrate from Horizon to Evergreen will have the benefit of the best expertise available--on both ends of the process."
Brad LaJeunesse, President of Equinox said, "This partnership provides a clear path for Horizon libraries who wish to switch to Evergreen. We are very pleased to be working with Alpha-G. They have an enviable reputation in the Horizon community for high-quality service."
Equinox and Alpha-G have complimentary knowledge of two complex systems: Equinox employees wrote the Evergreen system and Alpha-G has expert knowledge of Horizon. By working together, the two companies can use this complimentary knowledge to provide a seamless path to Evergreen.
