SAP NEWSBYTE — SAP (UK) Limited today announces that three new partners have joined the SAP Business ByDesign community in the UK – CSI, Nouveau Solutions and Softcat.
CSI is a well established provider of solutions to customers based on SAP, IBM and Infor products. An existing SAP reseller of SAP All-in-One and SAP BusinessObjects, CSI are excited about ByDesign as it gives them a Cloud-based offering and will enable them to drive more annuity revenue (a strategic priority).
Nouveau Solutions is a reseller providing hosting services, support, development services and software resale to SMB’s in the UK. As a sales-focused company, Nouveau Solutions will not only be reselling SAP Business ByDesign but later in the year will begin utilising the SAP Business ByDesign Studio to build more vertically orientated solutions. Nouveau Solutions has long been looking to resell a “premium brand ERP solution” and now SAP Business ByDesign offers the perfect entry point into reselling more complex business applications.
Softcat is a privately owned provider of software licensing, hardware, security and related IT services to SMB’s and for its SAP Business ByDesign engagement will be focused on selling CRM Starter Packs. In the first instance, SAP will be basing a salesperson in Softcat’s offices to help train the sales team on opportunity identification, support them in qualifying opportunities and co-ordinate resources to ensure success.
Ian Anstey, Head of SAP Business ByDesign, SAP UKI said: “SAP Business ByDesign is a game-changing product in the Business Application space. One of the key things SAP Business ByDesign enables us to do is reach out to new types of partners who have never before considered partnering with SAP to resell our ERP or CRM solutions. As we continue to build momentum with SAP Business ByDesign we are delighted to announce that CSI, Nouveau Solutions and Softcat are now on-board with us in the UK.”
This announcement brings the total number of Business ByDesign partners recruited in the UK to 12. Globally, SAP has a partner network of over 10,000 companies and a track record of success delivering and deploying SAP solutions from the SME portfolio.
