Mindtree joins SAP to offer managed mobility in Australia
Indian information technology company Mindtree and SAP, a leader in enterprise application software, on Thursday announced their first Managed Mobility Offering for the Australia market.
Mindtree will deliver SAP mobile solutions in the cloud and with a pay-by-usage model.
The managed mobility services from Mindtree and SAP will enable organisations to rapidly mobilize their business with little complexity, minimal set-up time, and zero infrastructure costs.
Mindtree will offer an end-to-end suite of services including consulting, installation, hosting, and maintenance for the SAP Work Manager application in the cloud.
According to the officials, this solution is designed to reduce the deployment time of SAP mobile solutions from months to weeks, improve efficiency and decision making capability of their field workforce by eliminating paper and improving data capture, create a more cost-effective IT infrastructure and mitigate the risk of technology obsolescence.
In addition, the companies offer a suite of pre-built ready-to-deploy apps that clients can utilize for business scenarios ranging from enabling payments to managing loyalty points.
SAP Customer Loyalty, for example, is a customizable mobile application designed to enable consumer-facing brands to build stronger relationships with their customers, as well as boost customer loyalty, transaction volumes, and conversion rates.
"This managed mobility cloud offering speeds time to market through a low-risk solution that cuts across industries," said Parthasarathy NS, President and Chief Operating Officer, Mindtree.
"Mindtree's managed mobility offering combines the best of both worlds: Mindtree's expertise in delivering superior mobile experiences and SAP's leading enterprise mobility portfolio," he added.
"Australian businesses are asking for a cloud-enabled mobile offering from SAP to underpin their cloud strategy," said Greg Miller, Chief Operating Officer, SAP ANZ.
He added, "The Mindtree partnership delivers a consumption-based pricing model that allows customers to scale their mobile solutions over time, and enables ongoing mobile innovation. Importantly, it alleviates significant up-front capital expenditure, which is critical for many clients."
