Administrators called in at titsup Sage reseller

Numbers didn't add up

The fate of Sage reseller BDE Group has been confirmed by the appointment of administrators.

Neil Mather and Mark Fry at Begbies Traynor were appointed joint administrators on Tuesday, CRN reports.

We reported yesterday how the firm's 100 staff feared the worst when they were sent home without pay last week.

That came after Sage said it was unable to offer any further financial support to the firm. According to Sage it had been in difficulty for "some time".

Rival resellers are now bidding to carve up BDE Group's 800 or so customers. ®
