Our Company

Located in Minneapolis, Business Partners Group was founded by the principal, Derek J. Kottke to help wholesale distributors and manufacturers in the SMB market increase revenues and profitability by aligning their technology investment with their business strategy.  

Derek's background in sales and operations ranges from a Fortune 500 company to startups and global ERP companies.  Derek holds a BBA from UW Eau Claire, and an MBA from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

In addition to our partnership with Workwise and Open Systems, Business Partners Group also provides the following services:

ERP Resources - Maybe you run a different solution than TCM or Traverse.  Business Partners Group can still help your business.  Through our extensive partner network, we can provide the resources to help you achieve your goals.

Software Selection - You make purchases every day, but the purchase of mission critical software happens once every few years or more.  Business Partners Group can help guide you through this process to ensure your technology selection is in line with your business strategy.

Business Partners Group is a veteran owned business!!!
