SAP Award for Arvato Systems
Arvato Systems today announced it has received the Fast-Growing Reseller of the Year Award, EMEA/DACH. Awards were presented by SAP during the SAP® EMEA & DACH Field Kick-Off Meeting (FKOM) 2012, held Jan. 23-25 in Milan, Italy, to the top-performing SAP channel partners and SAP services partners in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH) regions for outstanding contributions that impact overall SAP sales and pipeline-generation goals.
"We are very pleased to win this award. It underlines our strategy and our market orientation. It is another important step towards reaching our overall goal to belong to the TOP resellers and systems integrators in the DACH region by offering future proof services with added value for our customers," said Hartmut Fries, VP of Arvato Systems.
Selected from SAP’s wide-ranging EMEA and DACH partner base, nominations for the SAP Partner Impact awards were based on internal SAP sales data. A steering committee composed of regional and global SAP representatives determined winning partners in each category according to numerous criteria such as sales achievement and performance. As the recipient of the Partner Impact Award EMEA & DACH 2012, Arvato Systems has been honored as a top performing partner. Winners will receive strong recognition from the SAP field for their accomplishments.
Arvato Systems received the award during the SAP EMEA & DACH FKOM 2012, an annual gathering of SAP executives, SAP field employees and partners to learn about SAP’s strategy, sales methodology, best practices, business growth opportunities and product innovations. The theme of this year’s meeting, “Run Better Win Bigger,” prominently featured SAP’s innovation story focusing on its core pillars – analytics, cloud, mobility and in-memory computing – as well as solutions for industries and lines of business on a consistent core. A focus of the event was on helping SAP’s strong partner ecosystem succeed in 2012 by providing visibility into SAP’s company direction, education on products, networking opportunities, and exposure to SAP leaders. SAP and its partners help customers adopt innovation easily, gain results rapidly, grow sustainably and ultimately run better with SAP solutions. This year’s EMEA & DACH FKOM hosted approximately 4,500 attendees from the region.
“At SAP, we are convinced that the ability to grow and develop a vibrant partner ecosystem is a pivotal competitive advantage as technologies evolve faster and faster,” said Dr. Friedrich Neumeyer, senior vice president, SME, OnDemand & Partner Ecosystem, SAP DACH. “We are delighted to be able to award a distinct group of those partners who have proven their ability in the last year to make a real difference in the DACH market.”
