Media Release: SAP rewards top partners for customer relationship achievements


SAP UK & Ireland this week announced the winners of its annual 2010 PartnerEdge awards.

Sapphire was rewarded for excellence in the Outstanding Sales Performance for 2010 category for SAP Business One.

SAP’s PartnerEdge program offers education and support, dedicated sales and marketing support, and business opportunities and leads, to value-added resellers (VARs), to enable them to successfully sell, build and deliver SAP solutions to meet the needs of a growing UK and Irish market.

The SAP PartnerEdge awards are designed to acknowledge the partners who have most heavily invested in their customers’ success.

Outstanding Sales Performance awards were given for showing an innovative response to win business in an ever competitive marketplace.

SAP rewarded eight of their partners for excellence in a number of categories.

“The channel market is vastly expanding, and our partners are crucial to our target of doubling the channel’s share of SAP sales over the next four years,” said SAP UKI channel director, Robert Furnivall.

“We are grateful to our whole partner eco-system, and the PartnerEdge awards are our way of recognising partners for ensuring that our mutual customers are provided with the very best possible solutions and services. Congratulations to all of those who have received awards.”

David Singh, sales and marketing director at Sapphire Systems, said: “We are very pleased to have been recognised by SAP with this award. Sapphire’s ‘customer first’ ethos has helped us build long lasting relationships with our customers and also engage with new customers. SAP Business One is a great solution, but it is important to offer users a range of post implementation services including training, consultancy and support. Proactive account management and customer newsletters and events – online and in person – also form part of the Sapphire offering.”
