Ten Years as Global Leading SunSystems Partner

Sapphire named number one for Infor SunSystems for 10th year running

Online PR News – 07-November-2012 – London, UK – Sapphire is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Infor SunSystems Partner of the Year accolade for FY12, a position it has held for the past decade.

The award was announced earlier this week at the Infor Awards Ceremony – FY12 Partner Recognitions, which took place in Paris, France as part of the Infor on the Road and Infor EMEA Channel Partner Conference.

“We are naturally thrilled to have been named as the global number one for SunSystems this year” said Ian Caswell, Managing Director at Sapphire Systems. “It was great to see the new developments in SunSystems at our Customer User Day last month - along with some of the newer solutions from Infor, such as ION - and get feedback from both our new and long-standing customers.”

“This award celebrates two things,” said Chris Murphy, SVP of financial solutions for Infor. “The first is the longevity of our relationship with Sapphire, who for many years has been the number one global partner for our SunSystems solution. The second is the extensive range of services that Sapphire offers to its growing and global base of SunSystems customers. From 24 hour support and coverage by a range of global offices to user days focused on education and training, Sapphire has the resources and expertise to help its customers leverage the innovative new technologies being delivered by Infor for SunSystems, such as mobility and cloud. We look forward to continuing this incredibly strong relationship into 2013 and beyond.”

Sapphire provides consultancy, training and support for SunSystems implementations from offices throughout the UK, US and Asia-Pac. 24 hour hotline support is part of the standard offering for all customers.

“To have maintained this position for a full decade is an achievement we are all very proud of at Sapphire” Caswell concluded.
