J. J. Croney & Associates Acquires Las Vegas Firm;
Expands with Branch Office

PHOENIX, Ariz. --- J.J. Croney & Associates  (J2C+A), Phoenix, a rapidly growing full-service computer systems integrator for such clients as Starwood Hotels & Resorts and the Del Webb Corp., has acquired certain assets of Nevada Data Systems and has opened a new branch office in Las Vegas.  The announcement was made by Emily Clancy,  J2C+A vice president of sales and  marketing.

Michael Lewis, former president of Nevada Data Systems, will head up the new J2C+A  location in Las Vegas as branch manager.
 
"Lewis brings with him a significant installed base of IBM midrange customers, including clients in manufacturing, retail, distribution and other major business sectors.  We'll continue to develop those areas and expand into Nevada's growing hotel and resort markets," said Clancy.  She added, "J2C+A plans to complement the sales of computer hardware, software and technical services, by establishing both a cabling and a hardware service department in Las Vegas."

"It was logical for J.J. Croney & Associates' executives to leverage the strength of their offerings and expand into this rapidly growing region," said Lewis. "Because of J2C+A's successful implementation of SAP R3 running on IBM AS/400's at Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Las Vegas with its many resorts and hotels was very attractive.  Additionally SAP R3 has many cross industry applications that can provide a productive working system of high value for most major corporations."

J.J. Croney & Associates, founded in 1991, is an IBM Business Partner as well as a business partner of such companies as SAP, Novell, Microsoft and Lakeview Technologies (MIMIX). With over 90 employees J2C+A is one of IBM's leading Solution Providers in the Southwest.

They recently completed, ahead of schedule, the first phase of a global computer implementation project for Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. In just 100 days from start to go live, J2C+A implemented SAP R3 on IBM's AS/400 hardware supporting 129 Starwood properties across the entire country.
