EY announces that it is the recipient of two SAP® Partner Excellence Awards 2018:

  • SAP EMEA/MEE Partner Excellence Award 2018 for Joint Collaboration Experience
  • SAP Latin America/Caribbean Partner Excellence Award 2018 for Top Influencer Partner

The awards were presented by SAP (NYSE: SAP) to the top performing SAP collaborators in the Europe, Middle East and Africa/Middle and Eastern Europe and Latin America/Caribbean regions that have made outstanding contributions to driving customers’ digital transformation. In collaboration with SAP, recipients of this year’s awards helped customers use SAP solutions to adopt innovation, generate positive results rapidly, grow sustainably and operate more efficiently.

Tim Fuller, EY Global SAP Go-to-Market Leader, Advisory, says:

“It is indeed an honor to receive these prestigious awards. The comprehensive, business-focused perspective of EY allows us to address strategy, processes, technology and operational impacts simultaneously for clients. This helps determine that clients get real business impact and greater return on their investments. The results speak for themselves: high customer satisfaction and retention and a growth rate with respect to SAP services that exceeds industry averages.”

Nominations for the SAP Partner Excellence Awards were based on internal SAP sales data, selected from its wide-ranging partner base. 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. Awards were presented in a variety of categories, including overall sales, innovation, technology, services and solution-specific areas.

Rodolpho Cardenuto, President, Global Channels & General Business, SAP, says:

“The SAP Partner Excellence Awards exemplify the shared purpose, commitment and success that allow our partners, together with SAP, to deliver value to our customers on an ongoing basis. To that end, I am pleased and honored to recognize and congratulate EY as the recipient of the two prestigious SAP Partner Excellence Awards 2018. We look forward to continuing to work closely together with EY to realize even greater success in 2018.”

As part of its ongoing strategic alliance with SAP, EY is working together with SAP to further advance deployment of blockchain across industries worldwide. Under their existing alliance relationship, the organizations are collaborating to integrate blockchain applications and services with the SAP Leonardo digital innovation system to help accelerate enterprises’ implementation of blockchain across their business operations. EY Ops Chain, which is designed for customers to use to simplify supply chain management, is one of the first blockchain-based solutions that will be integrated on SAP Leonardo.

EY received the awards during the SAP Field Kick-Off Meetings in Barcelona and Miami, the annual gatherings of SAP executives, SAP field employees and partners. It is SAP’s largest yearly sales meeting, intended to gain and exchange information on SAP’s strategy, sales methodology, business growth opportunities and product innovations as well as drive success during the upcoming year.
