Softtek Strengthens SAP Offerings by Purchasing Systech Integrators
By Meenakshi Shankar, TMCnet Contributor
SAP (News - Alert) solutions empower more businesses to run efficiently and in real time, much more effectively than any other enterprise platform. On this backdrop, IT services provider Softtek is creating more possibilities for its customers.
The integration of Systech into the Softtek family is part of the company’s ongoing strategic effort to help clients maximize the value of their investments in SAP solutions and create market-leading positions for them.
This acquisition is believed to further strengthen Softtek’s SAP qualifications by adding capabilities for cloud, mobility solutions and the SAP HANA capabilities, as well as cross-process and industry domain expertise to its solutions portfolio.
“We have one of the strongest offerings for SAP solutions in the Americas, and now an even stronger Global Nearshore model,” Blanca Treviño, president and chief executive officer at Softtek, said in a statement.
Softtek’s SAP solutions account for nearly a third of the company’s global revenue. The company’s capabilities for SAP solutions include implementation, upgrade, cloud, analytics and application management services in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia.
The addition of Systech’s SAP solutions expertise and India delivery center enhances Softtek’s SAP capabilities through its existing network of global delivery centers (GDCs) in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and China.
Thrilled by the new opportunities that lie ahead by joining Softtek, Sam Tyagi, chief executive and cofounder of Systech, said the combined capabilities, experience and geographic scope will unequivocally provide new avenues to deliver SAP software-based innovations to the market.
Tyagi also clarified that he will now be the Managing Director of Softtek’s ERP practice for North America. Softtek's new ERP North American practice will operate under the name, “Systech, a Softtek Company” for a limited period of time.
This announcement follows Softtek’s recent acquisition of SCAi, announced in Q3 2012. Collectively, the newly acquired capabilities add to Softtek’s strong SAP practice of nearly 2,000 consultants and more than 800 implementations.
Robert Enslin, president of Global Customer Operations and member of Global Managing Board, SAP, stated that with the acquisition of Systech, the company expects Softtek to be an even stronger partner to deliver SAP software-enabled innovation and agility to its customers.
