ATOS ORIGIN TEAMS WITH SAP TO DELIVER NEW SOLUTION FOR MID-MARKET CHEMICAL COMPANIES
Atos Origin Will Showcase SAP Solutions at SAPPHIRE® ’06 Orlando Booth #2759, May 16-18
Houston, Texas – May 9, 2006 – Atos Origin today announced it is working with SAP America, Inc. to deliver an enterprise resource planning (ERP) packaged solution designed specifically for mid-market chemical companies. The solution is designed to meet the business needs of mid-market chemical companies, including value-added implementation, system hosting and additional proprietary functionality. Atos Origin underwent a thorough process to become accredited by SAP to implement the new solution.
According to recent AMR research, increasing competition in the market is challenging chemical companies to become more innovative with specialty products, and to offer services that augment commodity products. Atos Origin’s mid-market chemicals solution addresses industry challenges such as e-commerce integration, environmental health and safety compliance, and streamlining IT operations. In addition, it reduces the time of the implementation cycle and is based on a pre-configured mySAP ERP chemicals best practices solution that was developed jointly by Atos Origin, SAP and other partners.
“Mid-market chemical companies have special information technology needs — the industry has heavy merger, acquisition and divesture activity that can result in multiple, incongruous IT systems, and companies often have limited IT budgets,” said Angie Goodwin, vice president of ERP Services North America at Atos Origin. “This solution is scalable to support future business growth and can be deployed within 15 weeks, creating a short, smooth transition period which contributes to considerable cost reduction. This is a milestone in Atos Origin’s partnership with SAP.”
Atos Origin has been an SAP partner since 1984 and is a Certified Global SAP Services Partner and a Certified Global SAP Hosting Partner.
As a sponsor of SAPPHIRE® ''06 Orlando, Atos Origin is looking forward to sharing more information on this solution for mid-market chemical companies and other SAP solutions offered by the company. Atos Origin will host booth #2759 at SAPPHIRE® ’06 from May 16 through May 18.
