Eugene Olivier, business development director of 4most, the Pretoria-based SAP Business One ERP software and technology solutions supplier and implementer, has been named Sales Person of the Year by SAP for 2011.
“Our infrastructure development activity and the effort we put into developing new business in the SADEC region, particularly Zambia, Namibia and Botswana, has certainly paid off,” says Olivier.
“We focused on building up expertise in SAP solutions relating to specific fields of business, including the job processing, retail, manufacturing and automotive industries. This endeavour has yielded very positive results.”
He adds that looking ahead, 4most has structured plans to continue extending its business base within South Africa and neighbouring territories such as Zambia and Namibia.
“Our emphasis within this expansion is on knowledge, expertise and skills development transfer to locally recruited employees charged with servicing and supporting our growing client bases in these areas.”
4most as a company was also nominated runner-up for  the 2011 SAP Business One Value-added Reseller of the Year award. The VAR of the Year criteria included the number of customers sold to, revenue generated, year-on-year growth, use of the marketing development funds, customer references and training courses completed within the SAP PartnerEdge programme to upgrade and expand the knowledge base.
