Britehouse SSD, SAP's South African Alliance Partner, announced that it has reached "Gold Partner" status as a value-added reseller of SAP software in only eight months. The new status will entitle Britehouse to benefits from SAP, including discounts. Britehouse is the only company on the African continent to offer the full spectrum of SAP products.
"We're not just resellers," said Paolo Masselli, CEO of Britehouse. "We offer an end-to-end SAP service that supports SAP's strategic focus areas: cloud, mobile, analytics, database and technology services.
"The significance of this to our customers is that SAP invests more than any other business solutions company in researching market trends and business requirements, designing its solutions to fully optimise the way organisations operate - today and tomorrow. So, by aligning ourselves with SAP's focus areas, we're best positioned to make our own customers best-run, future-proofed organisations."
Masselli also stated that Britehouse's close relationship with SAP will help its customers get the most relevant solutions for the growth and agility of their businesses. In addition to being an SAP Africa service alliance partner, Britehouse is also Africa's only-SAP-certified cloud partner and South Africa's largest SAP Analytics partner.
"Everything we do is aimed at enabling organisations to spend less money running the past and free up the money they need to spend on the future," Masselli says. "In the future business environment, organisations' IT spend[ing] needs to shift away from a maintenance focus - which limits them to trying to reduce complexity, cost, time and risk - towards making themselves more competitive, by having the capacity to innovate, change and collaborate - at speed."
