A partner of SAP has recently been recognised for its contribution to sustainability and co-innovation, which led to improvements on customers' businesses.
Atos, a global IT services provider, received the SAP Pinnacle Award which were handed out during the recently concluded SAPPHIRE NOW, SAP's annual international customer conference. Atos was named Sustainability Partner of the Year and Application Co-innovation Partner of the Year.
With Atos' help, SAP customer Taminco was able to streamline current and future regulatory compliance while at the same time lowering operational risks and costs. To achieve these successes, global chemical producer Taminco is running the SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management application on SAP ERP.
Taminco, with head office in Belgium, said the SAP application also helped the company maintain its corporate social responsibility while remaining profitable.
"We partner with Atos for its solid expertise in sustainability solutions, especially combined with its knowledge of SAP solutions. Given SAP's leading position in sustainability products, we feel that relying on these two global leaders in sustainability - SAP and Atos - will help safeguard the success of Taminco's social and environmental commitments," said Robert Moeyens, application manager, Taminco.
Atos was also able to help other SAP customers such as PSEG, Energie Steiermark and Varian Medical Systems through application co-innovation. The companies are using SAP Work Manager and SAP Multi-resource Scheduling rapid-deployment solution and other SAP solutions to streamline their production processes with the help of SAP partner, Atos.
For these, SAP recognised Atos through the 2013 SAP Pinnacle Awards.
Eric Duffaut, corporate officer and president, Global Ecosystem and Channels, SAP, said its ecosystem of partners, to include Atos, "is critical to the company we are now and the company we want to become in the future.
"Together with our partners - who are co-innovating with us, reselling and implementing our solutions - we offer choice and deliver transformational value to our joint customers of all sizes. Partners like Atos are our force multipliers, and today, more than ever, they are essential to our customers' success."
Finalists and winners in the Pinnacle Awards were chosen based on field recommendations, customer feedback and performance indicators in the following four categories: co-innovation, market expansion, service delivery and sustainability.
