Softtek’s SAP Practice Garners Accolades in South America

The company also receives prestigious SAP Award of Excellence for 10th time in 11 years

Monterrey, Mexico – March 10, 2008 – Softtek, the global provider of IT and business process solutions and the largest private service provider in Latin America, announced today that its SAP Practice, including consulting services and product distribution, received several distinctions in South America.

For the 10th time, Softtek received the SAP Award of Excellence, its 9th in the South America regional category. The SAP Award of Excellence is offered annually by SAP to one outstanding partner in each geographic (global, regional and local) category for its quality in service solutions. The award is given to the company that scored the highest in a satisfaction survey conducted among SAP clients.

“We are honored to receive this continued recognition for our leadership in SAP Practice. The SAP Award of Excellence is a true testament to our commitment to an outstanding customer experience,” said Francisco Lara, CEO of South America and Caribbean at Softtek. “Over the last decade, we have built trust and credibility in the SAP services market and will continue to improve our offerings to bring the customer experience to the next level.”

In Argentina, Softtek received two awards from SAP: the first for generating the largest contribution to net revenue through its channel partnership with SAP; and the second for certifying the second largest number of consultants in the country throughout 2007.

“Critical components of our clients’ businesses run on SAP products, and we play an integral role in implementing, supporting, and enhancing their infrastructure,” said Mauro Mattioda, executive director for Southern Cone at Softtek. “Maintaining a strong partnership with SAP and retaining a solid base of certified consultants are key elements to our continued success.”

Softtek Colombia was distinguished by SAP’s Andean and Caribbean unit for its Contribution to Incremental Software Revenue.

“For the last five years we have had the privilege to work on some of the most challenging projects in the region’s large enterprise sector,” said Gerson Granados, executive director for Softtek Colombia. “I want to thank our clients for their trust and commend our consultants for their talent and commitment to excel.”

A December 2007 report from Forrester Research, Inc., titled “Forrester Wave™: SAP Implementation Providers, Q4 2007,” recognized Softtek as a “strong performer” based on 108 criteria including its current product offering, strategy, and market presence. The report highlighted Softtek’s 13-year experience in the SAP practice, the largest in Latin America.
