Aberdeen-based software consultancy Absoft has secured significant contract wins within the public sector in the last year, amounting to more than £1 million.
Contract wins for the SAP® specialists stem from successful process optimisation and support services undertaken with three local authorities in the UK.
Absoft is experiencing successful expansion across multiple sectors and the consultancy’s credentials in delivering best-in-class SAP solutions within the public sector continue to develop from strength to strength.
Some of Absoft’s work in the public sector includes the provision of technical and managed services, which form part of the firm’s Integrated SAP Support offering.
Keith Davidson, Integrated Services Director at Absoft commented: “As an important strand of our business, we are very pleased to see our presence and work within the public sector continue to grow. The nature of our technical and managed services is highly transferable across many industries, and together, with almost three decades of SAP experience, this has been instrumental in securing ongoing work within the public sector.
“We understand that local authorities and county councils are under mounting pressure to streamline processes and achieve cost efficiencies. As a result, a major part of our services to the public sector now involve optimising business processes in SAP. Helping local authorities to augment existing SAP processes, has amounted to cost savings in the region of £300,000.
“These cost efficiencies are testament to our experienced delivery team here at Absoft and we plan to build on this local authority expertise with the appointment of Dawn Evans as our dedicated engagement manager for the public sector. Based in London, Dawn Evans brings over 25 years of public sector experience, 15 of which involved working with SAP.”
Dawn Evans added: “I believe that my public sector experience will bring valuable insight to assist Absoft’s continued growth in this sector. I have experience of working with the SAP consultancy on a very successful programme which delivered significant cost efficiencies and streamlined business processes. I am honoured to be representing Absoft in the public sector arena and I’m excited at the prospect of assisting other organisations to benefit from the SAP solutions we offer.”
