PR Fire 1 Nov 2010 - Leadent Edge gains SAP services partner status.

Leadent Edge can now leverage its relationship with SAP focusing on SAP Workforce Scheduling and Optimization by ClickSoftware to jointly deliver better value and benefit for customers.

Leadent Edge announce their appointment as an SAP Services Partner, adding further to their credibility. This fully endorses Leadent Edge's capabilities as a specialist consultancy providing a range of services to the SAP user community. SAP Workforce Scheduling and Optimization by ClickSoftware is a key application which enables Leadent Edge to implement strategic solutions with significant business value representing exceptional ROI.

Alastair Clifford-Jones, CEO Leadent Edge, said, "We are already established and proven in providing service organisations with enhanced Strategy and Solutions to optimise their workforce. However, this new relationship positions us strategically with SAP and presents a compelling value proposition for SAP users. Though there are other suppliers in this space, they are neither dedicated to this area nor have the depth of business strategy knowledge and skills required to transform businesses successfully."

The key benefits Leadent Edge help organisations realise are:

* Increased revenues - eg. optimisation of elements of service chain, customer retention, competitive advantage, customer satisfaction, existing customer promotion

* Reduced costs - eg. headcount, fuel, assets, overtime, reduce contractor reliance, travel time

* Achieving Regulatory compliance - eg. European Working time directive

* Improved customer service - eg. SLA performance

* Reduced asset TCO - eg. Asset failure reduction

* Increased Productivity through improved employee satisfaction - eg. giving employees effective and efficient tools for the job.

Alastair continues, "By working closer with the SAP teams we are confident of becoming the trusted partner of choice, enabling our mutual customers to derive the business improvement they seek in a shorter timescale for maximum Return on Investment."

Colin Sharp, Director of Business User & Solution Sales, SAP UK commented, "I believe that working together Leadent Edge and SAP can address many of the challenges facing our customers in improving workforce efficiency and yet at the same time maintain or increase the quality of service.

"This important relationship complements Leadent Edge’s certification as an EMEA ClickSoftware Partner."
