Cloud aggregator rhipe has been named the first distributor for Wiise, the Microsoft-powered cloud accounting software formerly known as Financials for Office 356, and relaunched this year by KPMG and Commonwealth Bank.
The software combines business management capabilities with online banking and payments, integrating with Office 365.
The distribution partnership will have Wiise fully supported and integrated with rhipe’s existing suite of Microsoft CSP products, which includes Dynamics and Office 365.
Rhipe chief executive Dominic O’Hanlon said: “As a cloud first, channel first company, we’re excited to provide our partners with this opportunity that will enable them to have a new conversation with their customers and accelerate cloud profitability.”
Customers will be able to pick up Wiise through rhipe’s ecosystem of 2500 partners.
Wiise executive director John Munnelly said his team was excited to accelerate the growth of the software with rhipe.
“In the few months since we launched we found there’s a huge demand for software that fills the gap between cloud accounting and enterprise-scale ERP solutions – and rhipe is the ideal partner to bring Wiise to SMEs across the country.”
Financials 365 was spun out from Hands-On Systems four years ago as a competitor to the likes of Xero and based on Microsoft Dynamics. The independent software vendor (ISV) was a finalist in the 2018 CRN Impact Awards.
