More than 3 000 service providers turn to SAP


SAP has announced continuing momentum in the adoption of the SAP for Professional Services solution portfolio and of SAP solutions in professional services organisations with the addition of more than 700 new customers during the last two years.

SAP now has more than 3 000 professional services companies among its customer base.
SAP's professional services customer base spans the entire sector's landscape, including consulting firms, audit and tax firms, IT services providers, outsourcers, staffing agencies and legal firms large and small.
IT legacy systems are being replaced by SAP systems to bring talent supply chain management, service delivery innovation and superior client experience to the forefront. These capabilities are giving professional services providers the ability to get noticed and deliver results in a complex and competitive environment.
"SAP recognized early on that building client, talent and service capabilities into IT systems was going to be a top-line concern for professional service providers," says Matthew Horenkamp, industry principal at SAP Americas. "We have made tremendous inroads into the professional services industry by listening to customers and working with them to face the business challenges that lie ahead of them."
SAP for Professional Services is an industry-specific solution portfolio that provides a robust and complete answer to the unique needs of organisations that offer project-based and managed services.
By addressing specific consulting, audit and tax, legal and IT services needs, SAP for Professional Services delivers capabilities for the entire lifecycle – from new business development to project management, staffing and billing. It enables companies to build an integrated, end-to-end environment where information flows freely. With this functionality, companies can effectively manage opportunities, resources, revenues and costs, as well as deliver the high-quality, on-time results that clients demand.
In particular, SAP has invested in enhancing its solution for human capital management, SAP ERP HCM, to help customers quickly find the right people, develop and leverage their talents, and better align their efforts with corporate objectives.
