SAP consultancy, Absoft, has announced it secured £6.5 million worth of contracts during 2020 with more work already secured for this year across oil and gas, manufacturing, rail and public sectors.
Lat years contracts included the completion of several Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) migration projects, including a number related to high-profile North Sea operator acquisitions, as well as system migration projects necessitated by the recent spate of rail franchise transfers into public ownership.
COVID-related restrictions saw the company complete its first “remote” data migration during spring 2020, coinciding with the launch of Datama, a proprietary software designed to technically migrate ERP systems in unprecedently short timescales.
Of specific benefit to those working within restricted transition service agreement schedules as a part of the merger and acquisition process, Datama has been successfully deployed across five migration projects.
Absoft’s SAP landscape and user support services have continued to demonstrate growth across all sectors, not least as a follow-on from successful M&A migration projects, with multi-year operational support deals signed to manage and optimise the migrated systems.
Don Valentine, Absoft commercial director, said: “As an SME consulting company with a strong track record of ERP systems migration in acquisition and divestment scenarios, Absoft has found itself to be perfectly placed to assist a wide range of companies to not only transition their new ERP but also leverage the Cloud to rationalise and optimise their IT landscapes, making them more agile, leaner and more suited to the new owners’ business requirements.”
The past 12 months have seen this demand for Absoft’s business process optimisation capabilities grow, with a particular focus automation of process monitoring/support, including automated monitoring, incident self-healing and self-service features, particularly within the food manufacturing, hospitality and public sectors.
As a result, Absoft has appointed SAP expert Robert MacDonald to the new position of Innovation and Technology manager.
