SAP Partner Awards are presented annually to the top performing SAP partners that have excelled in developing and growing their partnership with SAP, delivering exceptional performance across diverse industries and solutions to customers. The criteria for the SAP Partner Awards assessed partners’ year-on-year revenue growth, the number of net new customers, number of customers sold to as well as customer references and customer enablement.

EOH general manager Kirtan Sita says the SAP Partner and Quality Awards are aimed at recognising partners who have achieved excellence in planning and executing their SAP projects and programs; delivering significant benefits to their organisations.

“EOH took top honours in the SAP Partner of the Year category. In the ten key categories, EOH was nominated six times and we won three of the top awards.”

The SAP Quality Awards celebrate partners in Africa that use SAP’s quality principles in key focus areas which includes effectively manage software implementations marked by complex technical and business process requirements; making the extraordinary look ordinary, excelling in execution and delivering significant benefits and achieving fast, low-cost implementations to meet today’s demands for fast time to value.

Furthermore, the ‘SAP MD's Special Award’ demonstrates EOH’s excellence in the industry, this in support of its service excellence in helping customers realise best value from their investment in SAP. EOH SAP Services sales executive Mike Hartman was bestowed the highest honour of ‘Sales person of the Year’.
