Pioneer upgrades its SAP solution with consolidated hosting and support services
The car electronics company had been using SAP for over 12 years to support their business operations across Europe. Pioneer had previously outsourced the hosting of SAP, but wanted to review this service and the provision of SAP support to better address its current business needs. They turned to SOA People to do so.
Pioneer is a Japanese multinational corporation that specialises in car electronics. Introducing the world’s first component car stereo in 1975 and the world’s first GPS car navigation system for consumer market in 1990, Pioneer has always offered products at the forefront of the times.
As their business had evolved, they took the opportunity to review the use of SAP, and consolidate SAP support. This was a broad review that covered SAP licencing, contracting, maintenance, support, business consultancy and SAP hosting service.
“We determined that SOA People had the potential to provide the most comprehensive SAP service. They are immersed in SAP and were able to demonstrate relevant knowledge and experience.”
