Antrim based company, Parc Computing, has consolidated its position as Ireland’s leading consultancy for users of SAP™ software, having recently been awarded the exclusive rights to resell SAP’s packaged services in Ireland.

SAP, based in Germany, is an international market leader in business software solutions and Parc Computing is one of a limited number of companies worldwide, accredited to deliver SAP consultancy.

Parc Computing and SAP recently co-hosted a major event in Dublin to introduce the new packaged services to their client base in Ireland.

The packaged services are designed to add new functionality, at a relatively low cost, to SAP software already being used by customers. Part of the suite on offer is a reporting package developed by Parc Computing. This package allows companies to draw financial reports from their database and use a web browser to put them on an intranet. Access to the reports can be controlled with a password.

Invest Northern Ireland supported the company in the development of the reporting package. Commenting on the company’s success, Noel Brown, client executive of Invest NI, said: “We have been working closely with the company to support its product development and marketing activities. The new deal with SAP strengthens Parc Computing’s relationship with this major global company and puts it in a very strong position to increase its level of export sales.”

John Smith, Business Development Manager at Parc comments: “These new packaged services are aimed at all sizes of customer, and provide an innovative way of implementing SAP solutions to solve technical issues like poor performance or archiving. Each package is clearly defined in scope, has a definite end deliverable and is available at a fixed price. They will also have a quick implementation time resulting in a quicker return on investment for clients.”

The Dublin event was sponsored by Samsung SDS, the software division of the Korean multinational. Parc has recently been signed by Samsung as an alliance partner in the UK.
