I’m excited and proud to announce that SAP, with whom we have a strategic partnership, has been ranked No. 1 ERP software by revenue for the second consecutive year.
The #1 ranking was reported in Gartner’s Market Share Analysis: ERP Software Worldwide, 2018. As SAP’s strategic industry partner for manufacturing and distribution and SAP’s first OEM partner, OptiProERP saw its relationship with SAP as a way to give our small and midsize enterprise (SME) customers a solution that was previously unavailable to them. Specifically, a complete solution that delivers a level of comprehensiveness, industry-focus, innovation, simplicity and affordability that was purpose-built for SME manufacturers and distributors. Our goal was, and continues to be, to deliver the best of everything ERP for SME manufacturers and distributors – a best-in-class industry solution embedded into the market-leading and future-proof SAP Business One ERP platform. We believe our customers get the industry specificity, scalability, agility and peace of mind they need with a rapid ROI and less risk.
OptiProERP was built to take advantage of SAP’s industry-leading platform, leveraging digital-core technology to enable our customers to gain the agility they need to thrive in a dynamic digital economy.
SAP is the largest ERP provider catering to businesses of all sizes. What is not commonly known is that SAP’s largest customer base is the small and midsize market. In fact, 80% of SAP’s overall customers are SMEs, including the 65,000 who are running their businesses on SAP Business One.
Manufacturing and distribution SMEs, who face the same competitive challenges as larger businesses now have access to a one-stop-shop manufacturing solution on a trusted, scalable, and future-proof platform. With SAP’s continual platform investment, over $4.2 billion on R&D in 2018 alone, combined with OptiProERP’s innovative manufacturing capabilities, our customers have a foundation for growth no matter where their business takes them.
We are excited by SAP’s continuing ERP market dominance and look forward to our continuing partnership as we help SMEs address current challenges and future opportunities with flexibility, speed and insight.
