LIVINGSTON, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- SilverSun Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SSNT) (OTCQB: SSNT), a company engaged in delivering transformational business technology solutions and services, today announced that its principal operating subsidiary, SWK Technologies, finished 2012 with a record number of sales of its MAPADOC™ EDI (electronic data interchange) solution.

Jeffrey D. Roth, CEO of SWK Technologies, stated, "Our MAPADOC™ business has grown 130% over the last four years, and a large portion of this growth is attributable to our partnership with SPS Commerce. We now have over 350 customers nationwide using MAPADOC™ to build their trading partner relationships and manage and fulfill orders."
"SWK Technologies has outperformed our customer's expectations at each implementation," said David Novak, Executive Vice President of Business Development at SPS Commerce. "MAPADOC™ allows SPS customers to connect our supply chain network with their internal ERP system to power their relationships with retailers, vendors and 3PLs. We have hundreds of customers using the Sage 100, 500 and X3 ERP solutions, and are pleased to offer them the proven MAPADOC™ solution to enhance their use of our cloud services."
Novak continued, "Our partnership with SWK helps retail organizations realize more from their supply chain relationships. As a result, we are investigating new and exciting ways in which our organizations can cooperate for the betterment of both our organizations and our customers."
Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun Technologies, commented, "We continue to explore new markets for our line of proprietary software solutions, including MAPADOC™. For example, we are actively engaged in exploring the launch of MAPADOC™ in Europe, which will expand our potential market substantially. We look forward to making announcements in the near future regarding these potentially exciting developments."
