“I started Blue Link Associates in 1992 from my basement in Richmond Hill. Prior to Blue Link, while practicing as a CPA and consultant, I worked with many
owner-managed product-driven customers who could not find the right software to manage their operations. I could see their frustration and wanted to find a solution that could help – this sparked my interest in the software industry. I wanted to be able to provide businesses with an all-in-one solution and so I set out to learn everything I could about software development and the technology behind business solutions. I was soon immersed in the world of technology and loving every minute of it. I quickly found that my first-hand knowledge of wholesale and distribution businesses, combined with my accounting background, were huge assets in designing a solution that could suit the needs of small-medium size wholesale and distribution businesses. Enter Blue Link ERP! Jump ahead almost 30 years later and our goals have slightly changed, but most importantly, we still strive to be the most valuable, important and trusted business partner in the eyes of all our customers. I believe it is this mindset that allowed Blue Link to grow and see continued success over the years and today. We now employ dozens of consultants, programmers, support representatives and sales and marketing staff from an office in Vaughan. It’s been an exciting 27 years and I look forward to continuing to help our customers in the future!”

Although our software works great for wholesale and distribution businesses, through our experience over the last 26 years, we’ve found that there are a few situations where we are not a good fit and unlikely to contribute high value to an organization. As part of our sales process, we work to identify these unique cases as soon as possible to make sure we don’t waste anyone’s time.
Blue Link has been amazing right from the sales team, support, training…everything. We couldn’t have asked for a better partnership with an operating system.
