Leading SAP partner Ciber has launched a dedicated solution centre for SAP deployments within UK housing providers, combining the company’s SAP experts in the UK with its off-shore and near-shore SAP resources. The solution centre’s aim is to build a portfolio of interoperable and repeatable industry-specific solutions and custom applications based on SAP technologies.
Alan Miller, sales director, Ciber, said, “The centre of excellence has been set up as a solution factory to harness the intellectual property of highly specialised SAP consultants, housing sector advisors and a network of technical experts worldwide to advance the development of SAP solutions for social housing.”
Through the solution centre, a full spectrum of SAP solutions can be deployed on a single platform to support the entire housing organisation with all processes and data seamlessly integrated. The interoperable solutions provide flexibility in project scale and scope, and can be delivered with a phased approach. Some of the key functionalities covered by the solutions centre include finance and accounting, procurement, scheduling, business intelligence and reporting, property lifecycle management, customer interaction and HR.
Gary Springall, managing director, Ciber, added, “Over the last two years we have been building significant expertise in the housing sector, culminating in the development of our housing solution centre. Comprising a team of 50 dedicated people with expansion plans already in place, our continued investment will provide our clients with sustained benefit.”
