Softtek Receives Qualification by SAP® for JIT Supplier Automotive®

The hosted, cloud-based solution covers the business needs across North America; includes large U.S. automotive market projected to sell more than 16M vehicles in 2014

MONTERREY, Mexico – January 8, 2014 – Softtek, founder of the nearshore industry and leading global IT services provider dedicated to maximizing the value of applications, announced today that it has received the qualification for its rapid deployment solution (RDS) from SAP for its Just-in-Time (JIT) Supplier Automotive RDS, which is designed specifically to fulfill requirements of the automotive industry across North America. This accreditation is an expansion of coverage from the announcement of its JIT Supplier Automotive for the Mexican market, announced in 2013.

Softtek’s comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution is based on proven industry best practices and designed for rapid implementation, adaptability and fast return on investment. JIT Supplier Automotive RDS addresses the main regulations in the automotive industry, improves efficiencies and adapts to the needs of each client. Among the list of features that the RDS offering includes: increased ROI through medium and long-term planning models, electronic data interchange (EDI) with customers and suppliers, monitoring and evaluating resources.

“SAP services account for roughly a third of Softtek’s global revenue, and we are excited to bring JIT Supplier Automotive, a SAP Business All-in-One RDS, to our largest market—the U.S.—also the world’s second largest vehicle market,” said Oscar Valdes, Director of cloud industry solutions for Softtek. “With increased capabilities for cloud-enabled and mobility solutions, we look forward to our continued momentum in the SAP space to expand relationships for a variety of customers operating in highly regulated industries,” said Valdes.

The JIT Supplier Automotive Solution fully supports the key business processes of midsize auto part manufacturers and enables them to eliminate redundant processes, reduce cost, and speed up order fulfillment turnaround. This includes electronic data interchange (EDI) demand management, operation planning, repetitive manufacturing, on time deliveries, and total inventory ownership along the supply chain.

In 2013, Softtek received several SAP-related qualifications and partnerships, including becoming the first SAP®-qualified partner to offer SAP® Syclo Work Manager RDS; accreditation for its implementation services for ERP Manufacturing (Brazil); and accreditation of its JIT Automotive Supplier RDS (Mexico).  Softtek recently announced it was positioned in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for SAP Application Management Service Providers Worldwide, as the first and only Latin American-headquartered IT services provider included in the report. In Q1 of 2013 Softtek acquired Systech Integrators, a leading global provider of SAP services.
