United VARS Announces Its Participation at SAPPHIRE® NOW to Showcase SAP® S/4HANA Solution and Services for New and Existing Customers

Booth Will Spotlight Three United VARS Resellers: Answerthink, Illumiti, & Seidor

Orlando, Florida - May 13, 2016 - United VARS, an SAP platinum partner, today announced that it will participate at SAPPHIRE® NOW and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 17-19 in Orlando, Florida in Booth 1046. Three United VARS resellers – Answerthink, Illumiti, and Seidor – will share the booth with United VARS, showcasing their solutions and services portfolio for SAP® Business Suite 4 SAP HANA® (SAP S/4HANA) to new and existing customers.

United VARS was established in 2006 by All for One Steeb AG and Seidor S.A, Barcelona with six SAP resellers in 10 countries. The group now embraces 35 partners from 75 countries and serves as a powerful one-stop provider for the SAP solutions of its global clients. Today, as a global platinum reseller, United VARS is one of only ten SAP platinum partners worldwide.

This SAP partner network addresses the requirements of multinational implementation projects by offering one integrated project team with global project management responsibility. The concept is designed around the best-of-breed strategy from the local market leader with a profound knowledge of the country, market and culture. This approach results in a delivered solution that optimizes business processes, reduces costs, and complements business strategies.

"As a global platinum reseller with SAP, we want to be faster in implementing innovations, closely guiding the development of more powerful and service-oriented real-time business models. In addition, we want to rapidly expand our own portfolio of solutions for SAP HANA Cloud Platform with support for SAP S/4HANA, cloud solutions from SAP, as well as solutions from SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Ariba and SAP Hybris," explained Detlef Mehlmann, United VARs Director and Head of Business Development International at All for One Steeb AG.

In light of how global IT providers concentrate their support activities in off-shore centers, close customer relations and ties to the local business culture are often neglected. This is, however, not the case with United VARS. These partners, such as Answerthink, Illumiti, and Seidor, provide superb SAP solutions and on-site services in the native language, with a solid understanding of the local business rules, regulations and laws, and spanning every time zone is unrivalled.

"Illumiti is very pleased to be exhibiting at SAPPHIRE NOW together with our colleagues from Answerthink and Seidor, which are also United VARS partners. We are proud to have one of our customers present how we jointly created a particularly effective user experience. SAPPHIRE NOW provides a wonderful venue to meet with others, who are likewise interested in SAP's latest innovations and future direction," said Dror Orbach, Illumiti's COO.

"We are now providing our clients with local support to enter new markets almost everywhere in the world. In whatever economic centers globalization takes our clients, United VARS not only puts them one step ahead, but gives them the advantage of having the most powerful and dedicated SAP partner already on the ground at work," highlighted United VARs' Mehlmann.

SAPPHIRE NOW focuses on how companies can enable their digital business strategy and get more from their technology investments. SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference are the world's premier business technology event and largest SAP customer-run conference, offering attendees the opportunity to learn and network with customers, SAP executives, partners and experts across the entire SAP ecosystem.
