Why work with an SAP Partner?
SAP partners have the expertise to maintain the high levels of satisfaction, solution quality, and service delivery that SAP customers expect.
Built just for you
SAP partners play a critical role by building, extending, customizing, and enriching our technology platforms to deliver innovative and tailored solutions that meet the exacting needs of customers all over the world. Each partner brings its own unique blend of expertise, skills, and services to deliver the solution you need and act as your trusted advisor today and into the future.
Keep it local
For some of you, working directly with a large company like SAP may not be practical. This is especially true of our small and midsize (SME) customers. Simply put, working with a partner who is nearby, understands your local market, speaks your language, is embedded in the culture, and can easily navigate local regulations might be the ideal choice.
Quality built in
All SAP partners must adhere to stringent requirements across all areas of their business operations, solutions, and services. This gives you peace of mind, knowing that you’re working with a partner that is not only endorsed by SAP but also continually monitored and evaluated.
Best in breed
Unlike other partner programs, SAP rewards and measures more than just revenue performance. Our programs also incentivize partners on those things that matter most to you such as customer satisfaction, quality, and skill level. This creates a culture that places a strong emphasis on building customer relationships and not just closing deals.
SAP technology paired with the power of our SAP partner ecosystem truly amplifies our solutions and the value they can bring to your business. If you’ve never considered working with an SAP partner, maybe you should?
What our partners do
SAP partners work with you to solve your business challenges and help you become a best-run business.
Many of our partners work across a variety of SAP technologies, and are active in one or more of the following four areas:
These value-added resellers do far more than just “sell” SAP solutions. They act as your trusted advisor and have unique experience in specific industries, while many are experts meeting the needs of small and midsize customers (SMEs). They help you identify the best solution to address your challenges and the deployment model that aligns to your business objectives. They can also provide ongoing maintenance and support services, and help you extract maximum value from your investment in SAP technology as your needs change and your company grows.
Building solutions based on SAP's simplified, next-generation platforms which connect technologies based on the Internet of Things (IoT), the cloud, and mobile solutions, these SAP partners help propel companies like yours into a new digital world. It is because of these partners that the unique needs of many businesses can be met, and innovative ways to run and grow your business are realized. Partners who build SAP solutions extend our technology and functionality and make it more powerful and relevant to more businesses.
Our service partners provide you with strategic business consulting through the design, development, implementation, and integration of SAP solutions. It’s not uncommon for our service partners to work in unison with SAP to deliver the right solution in the right way for your business.
Many companies are moving away from on-premise solutions towards hosted solutions that are managed and run by third parties. Our partners are here to help host, manage, and run your SAP solutions and IT infrastructure on your behalf. This can help free up resources and redirect finances towards high-impact growth strategies.
Work with the experts
Gauge the expertise and experience of SAP partners based on their level in the SAP PartnerEdge program and SAP Recognized Expertise designations.
SAP PartnerEdge Platinum Partners
Our most strategic and global partnership organizations attain platinum status by invitation only and are offered this level based on a business case that is reviewed and approved by the SAP executive board. Working with one of our platinum partners means you’re working with one of our largest and most trusted SAP partners.
SAP PartnerEdge Gold Partners
Performing at a high level across their entire business and illustrating a strong commitment to delivering business value to our customers, we allocate points for competency and strategic alignment. Partners are evaluated on a yearly basis and cannot achieve gold status on business performance or size of customer base alone.
SAP PartnerEdge Silver Partners
These companies have made time, financial, and resources commitments to join SAP PartnerEdge and have met stringent entry requirements, including skills assessments and evaluation checks. They must continue to adhere to ongoing training and business operations requirements to maintain silver status.
SAP Recognized Expertise
When you see one of our partners using the logo for SAP Recognized Expertise, it shows they have acquired a specialization and depth of experience in implementing services in a specific area, SAP solution, or industry. Rigorous training and fulfilment of stringent requirements must be met before achieving a SAP Recognized Expertise designation, you can rest easy knowing they are truly experts in the area of specialization.
SAP Pinnacle Award Winners
Our annual SAP Pinnacle Award shines a spotlight on our most outstanding partners. Finalists are judged by a panel of experts against stringent award criteria, while the “Customer Choice” award gives you an opportunity to nominate your own SAP partner. Working with a winner of the SAP Pinnacle Award means that you are collaborating with one of our most innovative, proven, and top-performing partners.
