I.B.I.S., a Peachtree Corners, Ga.-based Dynamics reseller has sold its Dynamics GP practice to Socius. Based in Dublin, Ohio, Socius said the deal enables it to expand its GP market share to more of the United States and it now has more than 150 employees in that part of the business.

Gayle Prokop, director of alliances and channel development. says new Macola sales will be all channel. "Our goal is to have one hundred percent of our growth coming through our partners," she says.
