BluePencil is pleased to announce that we have been honoured as a 2014 SAP
Pinnacle Award Finalist in the category ‘Run SAP partner of the year’.

Pinnacle awards are presented annually to the top SAP partners that have excelled in developing and growing their partnership with SAP and driving customer success.

We are honoured to receive our second Pinnacle Finalist award in three years, both in the Services category, specifically for SAP Solution Manager. This is especially exciting for us as this is a hot topic in the industry. To be nominated from a competitive pool of 42 global and local partners and then recognised with this award is proof of our fullest commitment and ability to deliver and support SAP Solution Manager no matter how large the landscape.

Our innovation and thought leadership with respect to ‘Nucleus’, our Solution Manager as a Managed Service offering is a culmination of our own SAP Solution Manager journey, and this Pinnacle Finalist award from SAP AG is validation that our efforts and vision are aligned to what the market expects.

We could not have achieved this success without the ongoing support of our valued customers. We would thank them and we look forward to a long and prosperous partnership with our customers into the future.

Pinnacle award finalists and winners in 19 categories were based on field recommendations, customer feedback and performance indicators in the following four categories: co-innovation, market expansion, service delivery and sustainability.
