Bluekey Software Solutions awarded the SAP Pinnacle award 2008
BLUEKEY Software Solutions has won the prestigious SAP Pinnacle Award in the SME Channel Partner category.
SAP Pinnacle Awards are granted to leading SAP partners that have excelled in enhancing the customer experience by teaming with SAP to help customers to address critical issues such as accelerating innovation and improving return on investment. Winners were selected based on nominations received from partners and SAP employees.
Bluekey Software Solutions received the award at a special ceremony held on the eve of SAPPHIRE(r) Berlin, SAP's international customer conference which took place in May 2008.
The fast-growing company – it has branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and plans to open in Nairobi this year – also received the local SAP SME Partner award in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Bluekey said it was gratifying to receive international recognition, while it was also a reflection of the calibre of staff and the overall satisfaction of its customers.
MD Paul Marketos said the company was continually looking for ways to improve the levels of service and support to its customers. “We work closely with the staff at SAP, but also look to share ideas and experience with as many other SAP partners as possible – both in South Africa and abroad,” he said. “In this spirit of 'give and get' we have been able to streamline our SAP Business One implementations and increase customer satisfaction.”
He said the award was also a reflection of Bluekey’s commitment to collaboration with partners, suppliers and customers.
Derek Kudsee, director: SME & Channel, said the Bluekey team was focused not just on building its own business, “but also being a positive contributor to the entire SAP Business One partner ecosystem”, which was a key factor in winning the award.
“SAP is committed to extending the customer experience by orchestrating a unique ecosystem to foster co-innovation between SAP, customers, and partners,” said Zia Yusuf, executive vice president, Global Ecosystem and Partner Group, SAP. “This year's SAP Pinnacle Awards recipients have demonstrated industry-focused excellence, innovative solutions and reliable services that address high priority business needs and deliver exceptional customer value. We thank Bluekey Software Solutions for their dedication and passion to teaming with SAP to help redefine the customer experience.”
Stuart Young, MD of Stingray Group, said Bluekey had helped his company to ensure that SAP gave it the flexibility to adapt to customers’ needs and have the visibility of information to help drive the process. “Bluekey helped us to achieve this by ensuring our business complexities and needs were correctly analysed and assessed up front, leading to a successful installation on time and budget. “The continued accessibility of Bluekey personnel to help us maximise the benefits of SAP is also important to us," he said.
