13 December 2022 – SAP ANZ is excited to share it has taken out the top award of the night at the annual Woolworths Group Technology Awards, after being named the iconic Australian retailer’s Technology Partner of the Year for 2022.

The award is an acknowledgment of the long-standing strategic partnership between the two companies that has been in place for over 15 years. During this period Woolworths Group has adopted SAP technology across its retail and corporate operations, increasingly in the cloud since 2013, as well as played a pivotal role in many of SAP’s global advisory boards, which influence product development and roadmaps.

SAP technology supports Woolworths Group in ultimately getting groceries in the hands of consumers, through the enablement of many of its critical business processes. This includes the ordering of goods, driving promotions and managing inventory, as well as supporting business functions such as finance, procurement, and people.

“Through these endeavours, and others, SAP has demonstrated true strategic partnering in deed as well as in word and we look forward to many years of continued partnership,” John Hunt, Woolworths Group Chief Information Officer, shared.

The Woolworths Group Technology Awards have been running for five years, recognising and celebrating strong partnerships in the retail technology space.

Evan Mantis, Executive General Manager, Enterprise Industries & Growth Markets, SAP ANZ, said on the win: “We’re thrilled and honoured to be named as the Woolworths Group Technology Partner of Year. To play a part in helping Woolworths serve over 22 million customers each week, and by supporting their nearly 200,000 team members across Australia and New Zealand through our technology, is something that we are incredibly proud of.”

He concluded, “Helping our customers to run at their best is very important to us, so to be acknowledged through winning this award is testament to the effort put in by so many talented individuals over many years. When our customers succeed, we succeed, so I look forward to many more years of partnership with Woolworths!”
