RheinBrücke IT Consulting, an enterprise business systems and IT solutions and services company, has been recognized by Epicor Software as the 2016 Epicor International Channel Partner of the Year at their recent annual Ignite Global Sales Conference. An Epicor Platinum partner for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (EMEAI), RheinBrücke won the award for their remarkable contributions in customer support, overall sales growth and innovative approaches to leveraging Epicor ERP solutions.
Congratulating RheinBrücke and speaking at the event, alongside Craig McCollum, EVP, Americas, Hesham El Komy, Senior Director, International Channel said, “We are delighted to have a partner like RheinBrücke that has over seventy-five highly qualified associates to deliver excellence and inspire customer satisfaction, and in doing so, create the foundation for sustained business growth and enable business transformation to stay ahead of the competition.”
“RheinBrücke’s strong growth in EMEAI can be attributed to the successful execution of our Epicor ERP strategy. In line with Epicor’s strategy of providing industry specific ERP solutions and cloud first deployments, we have invested in a team of solution architects with extensive domain knowledge in Manufacturing, EPC/Construction and Distribution. Between our unrivalled technical capabilities and our focus on the mid-market segment, leveraging our global footprint, today, we have over forty clients in the EMEA region across our service offerings including ALCON, Al Hajery Group, Arabian Industries Group, Bin Hindi Group, Federal Mogul Auto Parts, FLSmidth A/S, Kern und Sohn, Sandoz GmBH and ZF-TRW Automotive”, said Suresh Chandrasekharan, Chief Solutions Architect at RheinBrücke.
“In today’s competitive marketplace, we understand that our clients want to make every investment count. We are committed to helping enterprises optimize their IT costs and I would like to thank the Epicor channel team for their relentless support throughout our journey. The award exemplifies this commitment to our customers, industry and the Epicor community,” said Srikanth Gaurav, Chief Mentor and Operations Officer of RheinBrücke EMEA.
Along with Epicor ERP solutions, RheinBrücke also provides Epicor HCM as one of their services. RheinBrücke has a HR Technical Centre of Excellence of highly skilled Epicor HCM certified consultants that leverage Epicor to streamline and automate processes and improve efficiency and productivity of HR departments at organizations across EMEAI. As a value add to Epicor HCM, in June 2015, RheinBrücke launched EpicPay, a payroll solution for Middle East countries built on the Epicor HCM platform. EpicPay is seamlessly integrated with Epicor and helps automate the payroll process, avoiding the issues associated with manual payroll processing. The solution has been extremely well received in the region and in just over fifteen months since the launch, six enterprises in the GCC and one in Africa have already successfully implemented EpicPay.
“We have had several significant customer wins across the Middle East, making it one of our strategic markets. We have recently opened our second office in Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) and significantly expanded our solutions, support and sales teams to help our growing Middle East business and our plan is to double market share in the region by 2018” concluded Sreekanth Ramakrishnan, Director Epicor Practice, RheinBrücke.
