Media Release: Sapphire – number one Professional Advantage partner

SAPPHIRE is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Professional Advantage Reseller of the Year 2011 accolade, maintaining the pole position for the third consecutive year.

Says a spokesperson: “Professional Advantage develops software products that enhance the value of leading international software solutions including the Infor FMS SunSystems range – for which Sapphire is also the global number one partner.”

Said Steve Howcroft, joint managing director at Professional Advantage: “Sapphire continues to impress and each member of the sales team has raised their game on last year, resulting in a 55 per cent increase in product sales. Given the current climate across the entire channel, this is an amazing result for the whole team.

“It is also worth noting that Sapphire has the largest iPOS customer base out side of Professional Advantage – a real testament to the team’s procurement expertise.”

David Singh, sales and marketing director at Sapphire, added: “As you can imagine, this is great news for us and we are all thrilled that our run as the premier solutions partner for Professional Advantage continues for another year. Our customers find the ability to extend their use of Infor FMS SunSystems with solutions such as Cash Desk [for electronic payment processing] and Collect [for credit control] great for further improving operational efficiency.”
