DENVER and CAPE TOWN, South Africa, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Spinnaker
Support, the global market leader for SAP and JD Edwards third-party
maintenance, co-sourcing^SM, and consulting, is proud to announce their
official entry into the South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa regions for SAP
and JD Edwards. Complementing their entrance is the signing of a strategic
partnership with Mantrasys (Pty) Ltd., a South African distribution company
that provides a diverse range of advanced technology and enterprise solutions
to SAP customers within the Sub-Saharan African region.
"Due to the increase in ERP vendor maintenance costs, Spinnaker Support is
fielding inquiries from CFOs and CIOs across the globe about the efficacy of
third-party maintenance," commented Matt Stava, Managing Principal for
Spinnaker Support. "Formally expanding our services footprint into South
Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa was an easy decision due to the interest we have
recently seen in this region. We are extremely enthusiastic about having
Mantrasys as our partner, particularly with their reputation for providing
leading-edge solutions to their customers. The relationship exponentially
boosts our efforts to become the go-to maintenance alternative for SAP
customers in the region."
Spinnaker Support's commitment to the South African market began earlier this
year with some strategic hires. First Mrs. Barbara Harper joined the company
from Oracle and more recently Nigel Pullan was appointed VP, EMEA. Through
this new partnership and exclusive sales agreement with Mantrasys, the
organizations will work jointly in educating the SAP marketplace about the
savings to be had with third-party maintenance and co-sourcing services.
"With economic conditions becoming more difficult, South African companies are
looking at ways to improve bottom-line profitability, and as such, pressure is
being put on reducing IT budgets. Reducing annual support fees is one way of
achieving this; however a company's ERP deployment should not be put at risk.
Previously, SAP customers had no alternative to high SAP Maintenance support
fees but now, with Spinnaker Support entering the Sub-Sahara market, via
Mantrasys as a new sales partner, there is a proven, world class alternative,"
stated Steve Berry, Director at Mantrasys.
