In the fall of 1988, Quantera Systems was launched with the mission of Helping Business Run Better with creative solutions, common sense, and uncommon service.  After reviewing all the major mid-market accounting software products, I chose MAS 90 by State of the Art (now Sage 100cloud).  After 30 years, both the mission and the product have stood the test of time. 

As you may know, we have been partnered with DSD Business Systems for 10 years.  Headquartered in San Diego, DSD is a premier technology business partner with 38 offices nationwide and is a leading developer of Sage 100cloud enhancements.  DSD also has expertise in many powerful solutions for ERP and Accounting, CRM, HCM, manufacturing, distribution, and warehouse automation.  Quantera and DSD have enjoyed a relationship based on shared values and trust, and by being a champion for our clients.

Now it is time for us to take the next step in helping you, our valued client, by joining forces with DSD.  Beginning this month, we will merge Quantera operations into DSD.  The new location will be named DSD – Silicon Valley and will serve the greater SF Bay Area and beyond.  We believe this is a very positive move for you and for us. 

Here’s what is going to happen next. 

  • Bob, Barbara, and Clark will continue serving as your consultants.
  • We will begin using DSD email accounts.
  • Quantera email addresses and phone/fax numbers will be routed to DSD.
  • Billing and payments will be processed by DSD.
  • You will be assigned a personal Account Manager.
  • The Quantera physical office at 96 N. 3rd Street in San Jose will close by September 30th.
  • We expect this transition to be complete by the end of September.

You may be wondering about Farideh, our beloved Office Manager for the last 18 years.  Farideh has joined one of our premier clients and has already embarked on a new chapter in her career.  We will miss her but are confident she will flourish in her new position. 

As Quantera, we have always strived to earn our client’s loyalty and trust.  As DSD, that commitment is re-affirmed.

As always, I welcome your call and look forward to continuing to serve you.
