Deloitte, which was the first SAP Concur customer in Australia and New Zealand, has become the cloud-based travel and expense company’s first Certified Implementation Partner.
The certification will allow the company to configure the solutions directly for clients, in the way the internal SAP Concur team has done to date, as well as provide existing client-side integration services such as solution design, project governance, and change management.
Greg Haskins, advisory partner, Deloitte, said, “Being recognised as a SAP Concur Certified Implementation Partner was the logical next step for our practice, having already worked with over 80 clients in adopting SAP Concur. This designation means that we can deliver the end-to-end implementation cycle, which gives our clients a lot of confidence in our time-boxed delivery approach. Our experience to date has shown that in most cases, adopting this solution shouldn’t be a drawn out and expensive process.”
The certification process required Deloitte to undertake classroom training and participate in SAP Concur on-the-job training and support.
Matthew Goss, managing director, ANZ, SAP Concur, said, “This milestone certification with Deloitte reflects the increasing demand in the Australian and New Zealand marketplace for smarter and more scalable trade, expense and invoice management solutions delivered as-a-service. As businesses have explored digital transformation, the value of these solutions has become crystal clear: companies are saving money through reduced expenses and streamlined processes.
“SAP Concur’s relationship with Deloitte is incredibly strong and this expanded alliance will let new customers gain similar benefits by using SAP Concur. In Deloitte, customers have access to a company with immense knowledge and experience both as a long-time customer and a partner of SAP Concur. It fits neatly with our goal to take companies of all sizes beyond automation to a completely connected spend management solution.”
