Bluekey takes gold at the 2011 SAP Partner Awards with SAP Business One Partner of the Year

Bluekey Software Solutions, a South African specialist in the implementation, consulting, support, and extension of enterprise resource planning, business intelligence and other business solutions, has received the prestigious SAP Partner of the Year Award for 2011.

Bluekey, which started in 2004, has won this prestigious award every year since 2005. Adding the 2011 award to its trophy cabinet is testament to the company’s success and skills - further strengthening their position as the most successful SAP Business One Partner in Africa.

Their current African footprint extends throughout South Africa and up into Kenya and Tanzania, with further expansion into Africa expected. To date it has helped customers in 16 African countries become best-run businesses. With the greatest number of SAP-certified professionals, 100+ employees, more than 220 successful implementations, and director experience in excess of 70 years it anticipates helping many more.

According to the company’s managing director, Dennis Marketos, Bluekey has consistently focused on understanding business requirements and implementing the most appropriate, value-adding solutions rather than just selling and deploying software.

“Our emphasis is on delivering solutions that enable businesses to run more efficiently and more profitably. Rather than just getting systems up and running on time, we strive to ensure that our clients get a return on their investment in SAP Business One within 12 to 18 months.

“Coming up tops when being evaluated by SAP against strict criteria which include sales, financial stability, skills and expertise, and most importantly, customer references, validates that we are on the right track,” he says.

Bluekey’s Director, Paul Marketos adds: “Some vendor partner programmes serve primarily to rank resellers in terms of their contribution to sales. With this programme, the standards are set high across numerous areas, amongst which is feedback from customers.

“The number of happy customers is telling of a company’s commitment to adding meaningful value to clients’ businesses. For us, it goes beyond sales and the product. It is the combination of the product, our industry expertise and experience, local industry knowledge and people on the ground that gives us the edge.

“While we are thrilled to have received this award again, we are by no means complacent and remain as committed as ever to delivering world-class solutions and real value to our clients in Africa,” he concludes.
