SAP announced BCX as top place winner in the category of SAP EMEA South Award for Partner Excellence for service excellence at a ceremony on January 14. The award is measured by year-on-year increase in certified personnel.

“This award is about service excellence and is a great way to kick-start 2020 across our markets. It talks to our values of collaboration, innovation, service and agility,” says BCX CEO Jonas Bogoshi.

“BCX has repositioned itself with a customer-centric strategy, focusing on customer- service challenges and putting the customer at the heart of the organisation, so to be recognised by a partner for this is proof that we are walking the talk.”

As the information and communication technology (ICT) market disrupters, BCX collaborates to anticipate all stakeholder needs with fast, innovative solutions and high-quality services. Its goal is to maximise client’s productivity, increase profits and future-proof their business.

The awards recognise top partners for their excellence in overall sales, innovation, technology and services, as well as in solution-specific areas.

Rich Phillips, vice-president of channel at SAP says, “BCX securing the SAP EMEA South Partner Excellence Award for service excellence is a testament to the investments and focus of BCX as it develops its SAP practice. This investment enables BCX to offer compelling SAP solutions to the SA market allowing its clients to leverage world-leading technology to enable their business to run better.”

Winners of the regional awards for partner excellence were selected from SAP’s wide-ranging partner base, and nominations were based on SAP’s internal sales data. A steering committee comprising regional and global SAP representatives determined the winning partners in each category per region according to numerous criteria, such as sales achievement and performance.
