SoftBrands, a global supplier of enterprise application software, today announced an extension of its partnership with SAP AG, a business software provider . The companies will jointly pursue opportunities for affiliates and smaller sites of large enterprises. The goal and commitment is to pursue a SAP-centric solution at the plant level for large enterprises. SoftBrands is one of the first partners to work with SAP on a joint market approach and strategy for this market segment.
"While we have been working with SAP informally to sell to the affiliate level in the past, we now have formalized our efforts and defined a shared vision of success," says Ralf Suerken, Senior Vice President and General Manager, SoftBrands Manufacturing. "By leveraging this partnership we can reinforce our ability to deliver ERP solutions and services of the highest caliber."
"SAP looks forward to expanding its strategy to place SAP Business One into the ecosystems of our large enterprise customers," says Ralf Mehnert-Meland, global senior director, Software Solution Partners, SAP. "SoftBrands has proven that they can sell, implement and support plant-level solutions at some of our most important customer sites. In addition, the SAP Business One solution is a strong fit at this level. This initiative will help ensure that large enterprises that run or intend to run SAP solutions at their headquarters and business units are offered an affordable SAP-centric solution at their plant-level and smaller sites."
