"Microsoft's Open Borders program was very important to us (Adlon Software) when we started our international expansion journey two years ago. The Microsoft iBDM team and later The OpenBorders Group, as the worldwide preferred vendor, were trusted advisors on channel development, cross-country settlement, regional alignment with Microsoft, and mergers and acquisitions.

"We are now moving into the second phase of our expansion into the UK, Netherlands and North America - all under the professional guidance of The OpenBorders Group. With the support of the group, we firmly believe that local channel development supported by a smart marketing program will lead to successful, scalable international business for us and Microsoft in our destination countries."
