VAR Licensing Benefits
There are many reasons as to why many direct SAP customers are moving to an indirect model with a Value Added Reseller such as Absoft. The first main benefit that an organisation could receive would be the potential ability to re-license their entire SAP estate via the Partner Managed Cloud offering, which can offer up to as much as 50% savings in license and ongoing maintenance costs.
In addition, if your business currently works with Absoft for all of their day to day SAP support and projects and with SAP UK for all licenses and maintenance, a VAR transfer would therefore mean there would be one point of contact for all SAP queries going forward including the resolution of SAP ‘bugs’, license management and audits.
With Absoft as your VAR partner, you can be confident that we know your business well and will therefore make the best licensing recommendations based on the company’s overall ICT and SAP strategy.
Technical Quality Checks (TQC’s)
Finally, via the indirect model, if your organisation were to move to an Enterprise Support Model, you could have access to numerous value added services. This model allows the partner to offer proactive services such as Technical Quality Checks (TQCs). There are approximately 20 different TQCs which are free for clients on Enterprise Support that can add real value, including business process performance optimisation, security optimisation, and performance optimisation to name a few.
To summarise, there are many benefits available by becoming an indirect SAP customer via a VAR partner. Discuss these options further with Keith Davidson on +44 (0)1224 707088, and fully explore all of the options which are available.
