Aptelis today announced it has received the certificate of a new
global quality accreditation program by SAP AG (NYSE: SAP). The
certificate was awarded by the SAP(R) Active Quality Management
organization for Aptelis' demonstration of clear quality standards
and processes. Through collaborative interaction with SAP, Aptelis, a
full-service consulting company offering end-to-end SAP software
solutions to maximize business performance, helps ensure that a
customer project is delivered to specification, on budget and on
SAP launched a new global quality accreditation program that focuses
on SAP Business All-in-One solutions as well as members of the SAP
Extended Business program. The accreditation is awarded globally to
partners that prove active quality management of their sales
processes and delivery methodologies.  
Aptelis is closely aligned to the key principles of quality that SAP
believes to be fundamental to the success of every implementation,
designed to deliver high-quality software and support while providing
the right processes, tools and services to drive successful projects
and delivery.  
Businesses today are continually challenged to manage risk in
increasingly complex projects. As a certified member of the global
quality accreditation program, Aptelis will be able to help SAP
customers lower risk, ensure on-time delivery, avoid time and cost
overruns, and improve successful delivery through the program
lifecycle. In addition, the program offers a quality approach for
sales processes and delivery methodologies through access to enhanced
SAP quality templates and processes. With a distinct focus on quality
deliverables, the accreditation also helps partners improve the
success of bids by providing a sales differentiator from other
partners through quality wording and information as well as risk
mitigation activities.  
"This accreditation is a credit to our team and our commitment to
providing customers with a clear view of SAP's ability to influ
the success of its program," said Paul Tran, president, Aptelis. "By
using SAP quality principles, we can help ensure that our customers
achieve smooth implementations as we anticipate benefits as measured
against business requirements. This accreditation reaffirms the work
we do to enable effective implementation of business processes using
SAP solutions and to fulfill requirements to the highest standard."  
The annual partner quality plan and quarterly quality reviews form
the basis for the global quality accreditation program by providing a
way to monitor joint performance and measure success. Partners are
required to submit an annual quality plan to showcase how they will
improve quality in their own organization during the year. In
addition, the quarterly quality review enables joint risk monitoring
via open bilateral communication as well as identifying and
preventing issues.  
"At SAP, we are continually striving to help customers manage the
implementation of integrated software solutions, and encourage our
partners to work to the principles of quality adhered to throughout
SAP," said Niall OCulain, head of Partner Quality Hub, SAP. "The new
global quality accreditation program allows us to work with partners
such as Aptelis to help ensure customers receive the necessary
information to make informed decisions about their solution and
implementation options, as well as realize the value of their
investment early on and to its full potential."
