London, United Kingdom – (The Hosting News) – May 3, 2006 –
Managed services company, Attenda Limited, has become a fully accredited SAP Hosting Partner. The certification process was conducted by SAP AG’s specialist staff from Germany and is valid for two years.
Ciaran Rafferty, Director and General Manager SME SAP UK and Ireland, commented, ”Attenda is a dynamic, customer focussed Partner that SAP is proud to have a strong relationship with. This enables SAP to offer an easier way to do business with our customers.”
According to the company, Attenda’s SAP Managed Service takes on the operational responsibility and management of SAP in a secure and robust environment, at an agreed fixed price.
Mark Fowle, CEO of Attenda added, ”This accreditation confirms our SAP expertise, giving our clients the peace of mind and ability to focus their resource on the development of SAP business process rather than the mundane tasks of operations. It underlines our particular experience in ensuring that business critical applications are always available and always secure. It also recognises our ability to offer SME clients IT certainty, up to 99.9%, at an agreed fixed price.”
Attenda’s involvement with SAP has been driven by demand from clients. It already manages SAP for a number of clients, one of these being Princes, the UK’s leading importer of canned food and one of the UK’s largest drinks manufacturers.
Neil Crew, Group IT Director at Princes Limited commented, ”We wanted an operations partner that we could trust to maintain the integrity and availability of our SAP systems. This accreditation compliments Attenda’s already strong process-led approach to managing business critical systems.”
Attenda is ISO27001 accredited, an HP SP Signature Partner, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, a SunTone accredited managed service provider and a SAP Hosting Partner. To become an accredited SAP Hosting Partner, Attenda underwent a rigorous qualification process that involved verification of the business model followed by an exhaustive technical audit.
According to Attenda, it is one of only seven companies to have been ranked in the UK’s Sunday Times ARM Tech Track 100 for three consecutive years.
The company’s accreditation portfolio of clients includes Avis Europe, bmi, easyCar, Compass Group, Microsoft, NHS and Sun.
