Defining the Future of Finance


SAP ANZ Awards for Partner Excellence recognise top partners for their performance in overall sales, innovation, technology, and services, as well as solution-specific areas.

The Australia & New Zealand based professional services firm Bluetree Solutions was awarded the 2020 SAP ANZ Partner Excellence Award for SAP Platform and Technologies. The business was among SAP’s first services partners with a clear focus on SAP Analytic Cloud (SAC) and has been at the forefront of promoting and implementing the Analytics, Reporting and Planning capability of SAC, helping SAP to define the future of finance in the ANZ market.

Co-Founders Alan Contreras, Bernhard Jantschgi and Christopher Kaszelik agree partnering with SAP allows Bluetree to make a real impact in the market. SAP’s technologies and particularly SAC, with its cloud-based planning, analytics and predictive features, play a central role in efficient financial connectivity, overcoming the challenge of point solutions and data silos.

SAP Analytic Cloud: The Future of Finance

Bluetree Director Christopher Kaszelik notes:

“We use our experience in budgeting, planning, reporting and analytics and the power of SAP to shape the future of our customer’s finance departments and their business as a whole. Bluetree has been on the forefront of promoting and implementing cloud-based Planning and Analytics solutions for our customers, which allows us to be a step ahead of other players in the market.”

Director Alan Contreras says:

“We see the market moving toward Cloud Based solutions. SAC is the one tool that can support fully integrated Planning and Analytics with full integration to S/4HANA, SuccessFactors, Ariba, and many others. The list of standard connections is constantly growing, which is great for our clients as they are getting value for money, especially with the introduction of SAP DataWarehouse Cloud”.

Bluetree partners with its customers to consult, design, build, operate and support SAP business solutions. The SAP solution has reinvigorated its customers’ corporate finance and reporting, allowing enterprise-wide access to analytics, simplified financial planning and analysis, enabling them to plan and forecast in real time.

Bluetree has been building strong partnerships with clients such as Taronga Zoo Sydney. Australia’s largest zoo went live with Reporting and Analytics in October 2019 under the leadership of Bluetree Director Bernhard Jantschgi with the next phase of the journey being the implementation of an Integrating Planning Solution.

 “This award demonstrates Bluetree’s commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction and is not the first award our team has won.” Bernhard continues “We’d like to recognise the important contributions of our dedicated team, their ingenuity and hard work, which distinguishes us from our competitors and proves Bluetree worthy of recognition. We also thank our committed customers and SAP for being on this journey with us.”

Patrick Elliott, Vice President, Head of Platform & Technology, SAP ANZ said:

“SAP is proud of the partnership we have built with Bluetree, who were worthy winners of this year’s SAP Platform and Technology Partner of the Year, ANZ. Bluetree’s focus on customer success means they consistently deliver strong business results, quickly, while building a true-partnership approach with their customers to ensure their success long into the future.”

“SAP works closely with Bluetree through the entire customer lifecycle, from proposal to delivery. This close collaboration, combined with Bluetree’s commitment to excellence, has meant that we have an excellent track record of winning and delivering successful projects on SAP Analytics Cloud, for both Analytics and Planning scenarios.”  

SAC — It’s the way of the future. It’s accessible, simpler financial analytics that make sense.
