Why SAP Business One gold status is important

When you’re ready to invest in an ERP solution for your business, picking SAP Business One is an excellent and assured choice. Throughout the world it is one of the most popular options for small to mid-size companies with between five and 150 users. In fact, it’s already installed in over 55,000 companies across 150 countries.

But how do you ensure your ERP installation goes to plan and meets your objectives? Fundamental to the success of an implementation is your choice of partner to supply licences, implement and support the platform moving forward.

Choose a partner with the best credentials

Many companies initially speak to SAP to recommend a partner, or at the very least log on to the SAP website and search for accredited partners in a particular area. Of course, SAP knows its software inside out and understands how best to implement it and ensure your project gets the best ROI possible. So, a list of accredited and recommended suppliers is the obvious place to start your search.

We recommend you immediately narrow your search down to the partners with the best credentials. Gold is SAP’s highest accreditation for SAP Business One. It is awarded to companies such as APH that have clearly and consistently demonstrated their expertise of the software, its add-ons and their application in particular sectors.  SAP Business One Gold partners are recognised by the SAP programme as experts who deliver value-added solutions and services to SAP customers across the entire lifecycle of activities such as sales, education, implementations & support.

Top three reasons to select a gold partner:

  • Gold partner status showcases a partner’s commitment to SAP technology and leading-edge services by continuously meeting SAP’s expectations for product quality, industry expertise, sales proficiency and a high level of customer satisfaction. A partner that has invested in the rigorous Gold accreditation process is committed to SAP in the long term. You can therefore be confident that your partner will support your SAP platform for years to come.
  • The gold status provides a partner with additional and deeper lines of support from SAP, which inevitably increase the customer value. Gold partners also have immediate access to portfolio extensions before other partners meaning we can quickly bring these to market on launch.
  • As a general rule SAP Business One Gold Partners are the most experienced – offering more technical, implementation and support band-width. The more experience a SAP Business One partner has in your industry and geography the more cost effective and timely your implementation and support of SAP Business One is likely to be. As an example, an experienced SAP Business One partner with knowledge and experience in your industry will have previously configured SAP Business One for similar requirements to yours and will have pre-written reports and functional sets for your industry. APH has implemented more than 250 customer projects across the UK and has developed accelerate-to-value implementation methodologies, best practices, content and tools, bringing unique value propositions to companies looking to move their ERP infrastructure to the cloud.
