Simplement and Complexus Software Announce Partnership to Help Customers
Optimize their Microsoft and SAP Investments
Simplement, Inc., a provider of simplified and streamlined data sourcing solutions for SAP customers, and Complexus Software, a niche software distributor and consultancy, announced today their partnership to bring Simplement's leading enterprise SAP Business Intelligence solutions to South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
With a growing list of global clients, Simplement sought out a partner to help develop its footprint in the African continent. “We were looking for a business partner that shared our philosophy of helping clients move away from handcrafted and expensive to maintain integrations with SAP. Many companies spend millions of dollars to perform basic reporting and data abstraction from SAP, whereas Simplement can make those key processes easy, fast and radically reduce initial and ongoing costs,” said Robert MacLean, President of Simplement. “Complexus is doing the same with its clients in Africa, helping clients move away from the broken cycle of ‘develop - fix - maintain’ to the modern approach of ‘analyse - configure - deploy.’ We have a shared commitment to help clients gain more value from their existing Microsoft and SAP investments, and to deliver the highest levels of client support and satisfaction,” MacLean added.
Nick Bradshaw, Director of Complexus, said: “When we first started talking to the team at Simplement, we realised from Day 1 there was a great fit. Our approach with clients is to help them abstract value from their investments in SharePoint and with a growing need to surface data “trapped” in SAP into platforms like SharePoint, we knew this would be a great addition to our growing portfolio of niche, value add products.” Bradshaw concluded, “We are already talking to several major Enterprises in Africa who have expressed an interest in Simplement and are looking to improve efficiency and reduce costs in this area of their business operations. We will be officially launching the product at SHARE 2013  conference, at the The Sandton Sun, Johannesburg, 11-13 March 2013.”
