SAP Business One, UK & Nordic Partner Day

April 22, 2013

Enprise product manager, James Brading and I arrived in London over the weekend in order to attend the UK & Nordics SAP Business One Partner Day on Tuesday 23rd April. Over the next few days we hope to meet with most of our resellers in this region.

Our main message to the partners here is that Enprise is now better equipped in the following ways to help them grow sales;

  • We have a new Technical Account Manager, Corban Slabbert who is based in the local time zone and is the first point of contact for our SAP Business One partners based in the UK, Nordics, Africa and Continental Europe. In addition to managing our partner relationships, Corban has product and technical expertise, so is well equipped to assist partners with sales and product related issues. This is in addition to Enprise’s web-based support and support tracking systems.
  • Since we last visited the UK, we now have a new product offering in the form of Enprise Rent, which extends the functionality of Enprise Job to give it functionality for businesses which have a project rental focus.
  • We have recently produced translations of our Enprise Job and Enprise Rent products to the French language. We also have a German partner producing a German translation. Further future translations are now being considered.

We are excited about the sales potential for Enprise SAP Business One solutions in the UK and Nordic region, given the strong market here for well proven software like ours that caters for service related industries. In the past, our partners and customers here have loved our products, but found that our lack of a local contact and time zone support limited our mutual success. This has now been addressed by the addition of Corban to our team, who is based in South Africa, specifically to be of service to this region.

All eyes on SAP HANA in Bratislava

April 10, 2013

Next week, April 17-19, around 270 SAP partners and personnel from around the world will meet in Bratislava, Slovakia for the SAP Business One HANA Tech-Summit. During this event, SAP Business One consultants and developers will gain knowledge and experience on SAP Business One running on SAP HANA.


James, Lita and I will be there from Enprise. We are in the process of adapting all of our solutions, (including Enprise Job and Enprise Rent) for SAP Business One to run on HANA.

HANA extends the reach of SAP Business One and partner solutions up-market to larger business with more users, data and analytical requirements.

We are excited to be part of this major market opportunity and are convinced that SAP Business One and solutions such as Enprise Job will benefit greatly from the industry-leading, game-changing analytical horsepower of SAP HANA.

Enprise goes to Bratislava

April 8, 2013

Next week James Brading, Lita Teng and I will travel from New Zealand to Bratislava, to attend the SAP Business One Tech-Summit. This is a global event where we will learn directly from SAP about their latest technologies, including HANA – SAP’s new High Performance Analytical Appliance.

HANA is of particular significance to Enprise, because we are presently developing the capability for all of our products to run on HANA. Similarly, SAP is also releasing all of its software to run on HANA – including SAP Business One.

HANA gives SAP Business One and solutions such as Enprise Job a lot more processing power and analytic capability, enabling the solutions to be suitable for larger customers with larger volumes of data and more sophisticated data analysis requirements.

Following the Tech-Summit, James and I will continue up to London for the SAP Business One UK & Nordics Partner Day.

We look forward to meeting many of ours and SAP’s reseller partners from around the world at both of these events.
