IRVINE, Calif. - Iteration2 has been selected to join the Microsoft Industry Builder Initiative (MIBI), an independent software vendor (ISV) that offers business management solutions for industry-specific issues. MIBI selects ISV candidates that have developed leading industry-specific solutions.

"Today's field service customers demand complete solutions to automate their field service requirements and meet their organizations' unique needs," said Mark Jensen, general manager of Microsoft Axapta at Microsoft. Iteration2's Commander Series (ICS), which includes Field Service and Mobile Work Force, will now also support MIBI's Field Force Automation that is offered with Microsoft's Axapta. ICS will be packaged and promoted with Microsoft customer support to Microsoft Business Solutions partners worldwide.

Gary Peterson, vice president of Iteration2 and Commander Series Practice director said, "Being selected to participate in the Industry Builder Initiative is the highest recognition we could receive for our Commander Series solution. Customers gain from best-of-breed solutions, Microsoft gains by expanding their capabilities, and Iteration2 gains by having the largest indirect sales channel in the world distribute its product."
