“Atos Origin Winner of Two SAP Partner Awards”
London, 25 May 2006
Underscoring commitment to delivery and customer service
Atos Origin, a leading IT services company, today announced that it won two of the seven awards presented at the SAP Partner Awards ceremony held in London on 11th May. Atos Origin was the only company to win two awards and it was the second consecutive year that the company won the Customer Satisfaction and Quality Performance award. Atos Origin also won the "Outstanding Contribution" award in the Small to Medium Enterprise category for work with a number of companies including Johnson Services Group and John Crane.
The Customer Satisfaction and Quality Performance award is particularly prestigious as it is based largely on the results of a customer satisfaction survey, in which customers are asked to rate SAP partners on all aspects of the SAP implementation process, including professional competence, quality of consultants, SAP product know-how and ability to deliver on time and to budget.
“The SAP Partner awards recognise the quality of service and delivery track record of our partners and it is an outstanding achievement for Atos Origin,” said Graham Kingsmill, managing director, SAP UK and Ireland. “I am also delighted to be able to recognise Atos Origin's commitment to the SME market, which is a key strategic thrust for SAP's business globally.”
“Winning the Customer Satisfaction and Quality Performance award for the second consecutive year underscores our commitment to customer service and high quality delivery,” said Paul Bray, head of SAP Practice at Atos Origin. “We work closely with SAP and our customers to ensure we provide services that are closely aligned to their business objectives and that are tailored to their specific needs.”
