Theta partners with US reseller as global demand grows

20 May 15

Theta, the Kiwi firm specialising in business intelligence and solutions, has officially entered its second international reseller agreement for 2015.

Seattle-based Talus Solutions Group has partnered with Theta for the marketing, sale, implementation and support of Six Degrees in the United States.

Six Degrees is Theta’s enterprise planning software built on the MicroStrategy business intelligence platform.

Talus is an established MicroStrategy partner, with business intelligence and human capital management expertise and several blue-chip customers, says Theta.

Susan Paterson, Theta chair, says, “It’s exciting to see this innovative, Kiwi-developed software meet an international need, and we’re ready to make the most of the opportunity.”

“Talus’ extensive experience in the people side of planning will help us further develop Six Degrees, not just as resellers, but as collaborative development partners.

“Their access to companies like Amazon, Starbucks, Boeing and Expedia will help Theta take Six Degrees to the world,” she says.

Russ Anders, Talus CEO, says the team is ‘delighted’ to be representing Six Degrees in the US.

He says, “It occupies a unique niche in the planning software market, and partnering with Six Degrees means that we didn’t have to develop our own planning and forecasting solution.

“It also provides an excellent platform for us to develop enhanced reporting and analytics for our human capital management solution.

“It’s definitely something our customers are interested in, and we’re looking forward to working with Theta on new product features.”

Together with Project X in Toronto who signed earlier this year, Theta now has two resellers in North America, and continues to develop a partner ecosystem to extend coverage and business opportunities.
