Sujoy Sarkar, Director, SAP Practice Rakesh Chitradurga, Vice President, Application Services
Although SAP solutions have been around for quite some time, companies are still facing challenges with integrating them with their current systems. With companies challenged to respond consistently to the pressures of evolving markets, there is a need for more flexible and scalable solutions. In addition, companies look to maintain internal SAP support staff while deploying solutions to protect their SAP investment, all this without sharply increasing their total cost of operations. Stefanini from Southfield, MI tackles these issues by bringing decades of IT outsourcing expertise to clients around the globe. “We support mid-size and large corporations through offshore, onshore and nearshore IT managed services, systems integration, consulting and strategic staffing,” says Rakesh Chitradurga, Vice President, Application Services, Stefanini.

Stefanini offers enhanced services that includes IT infrastructure outsourcing, ap¬plication development/systems integration, ERP/SAP consulting, and strategic IT staffing solutions. With a strong client base which includes more than 300 multinational companies, Stefanini maintains a strong presence in industries such as financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications, chemical, public sector, and utilities. “Our highly skilled and experienced SAP professionals have the ability to team effectively within your organization and enhance your ability to extract value for the betterment of your business. Our unique software factory model offers a robust and industrialized approach for both new and existing applications across a variety of platforms and technologies,” says Sujoy Sarkar, Director of SAP Practice, Stefanini.

Stefanini provides SAP services across the entire SAP life cycle including Business Solution Consulting, SAP Design and Integration services, SAP Operations Management, and Service Desk support. Stefanini also helps clients increase efficiencies through continuous improvement initiatives leveraging Run SAP certified best practices.
“Designed on best practices, tailored for your business, our global SAP Application Management Services (AMS+) achieve measurable return on value for your enterprise,” says Sarkar.

For a detailed understanding of Stefanini’s SAP services, consider the example of a global SAP implementation and rollout for the world’s leading construction equipment manufacturer. The company required a rollout of SAP ECC 6.0 to over 100 manufacturing locations across North America and Europe with a very aggressive timeframe. Stefaninii was able to work closely with the client to identify specific SAP resource requirements in line with the rollout plan. Stefanini leveraged its SAP recruiting center of excellence to onboard consultants with the required skills and certifications and kept the project on schedule. Stefanini leveraged its blended shore delivery model, consisting of on-site Senior Engineers to interface directly with the client, while leveraging off-shore development and consulting resources. The results were stellar—Stefanini met the client’s aggressive rollout schedule, and kept costs within budget. The client benefitted from a successful SAP rollout and now has a sustainable platform to support their future growth.

“Beyond SAP Consulting Services, we also have a unique Application Services solution and are exclusively placed from an expertise perspective,” says Chitradurga. Stefanini is one of the leading providers of state-of-the-art Applications solutions in the nearshore market. “Nearshore Software Development and Managed Application Outsourcing Services constitute the core of our efforts over the past decade, and we leverage this focused approach to deliver New Custom Software, Business IT Managed Services and Software Application Migration Tools and it makes us completely unique in the market,” adds Chitradurga.

Going forward, Stefanini is looking at a very aggressive growth. The company also wants to craft its global delivery model to offer state-of-the-art products and services. “One of the other things that we are looking at is to diversifying our portfolio in the near-shore to make it stronger,” concludes Chitradurga.
