Winston-Salem, NC - Avid Solutions, a system integrator specializing in automation and information solutions, is now a member of the SAS® Partner Program. SAS is the leader in business intelligence and analytical software and services. As a fast-growing system integration company, Avid Solutions believes that the pace of change in the world continues to accelerate; therefore, the value of data has never been more vital to business success.
