An upturn in business activity in the WA marketplace, including merger and acquisition growth, has driven Perth-based mid-tier SAP consultancy Martarna’s expansion into the broader SAP solutions arena.
The group provides business solutions to clients in Australia and South East Asia, with a background of more than a decade of consulting to large multinationals in Australia, the Middle East and Asia.
Mark Foley, the recently appointed general manager of Martarna, said, “While Martarna’s traditional base has been HR and payroll, we are now expanding into other areas including materials management and logistics, financials and CRM. We are also very keen to offer collaboration and teaming solutions that incorporate new modules such as SAP Streamwork.”
Martarna’s most recent engagement is on BHP Billiton’s 1SAP project, and the company is also working on new alliances with existing SAP consultancies.
Although it currently has an established base of consultants, Martarna is also looking to attract more high calibre professionals to its team.
“We have recognised that consultants need an effective way to network and communicate so we have developed an online collaborative platform that allows them to share knowledge, access software modules, identify and manage opportunities, get training and use other resources to help them grow as professionals,” Foley said.
“We believe that this will provide us with an effective environment to grow our organisation and deliver the high levels of service required to our clients.”
