S&T is once again SAP Insurance Special Expertise Partner

For the third time: SAP for Insurance Award in Switzerland

A Strong Partner! For the third time in succession, S&T has been presented with the accolade of Special Expertise Partner in the area of SAP for Insurance in Switzerland. With this award, SAP (Switzerland) AG honors the comprehensive skills and knowledge of S&T in the insurance industry.
“This accolade is extremely important to us“, explains Georg Komornyik, Region General Manager at S&T DACH, “because Special Expertise Partners are closely integrated in the SAP communications and knowledge network. We therefore receive early warning about any product releases and continually enhance our consulting skills.” This certification is only awarded to SAP Service Partners that possess proven expertise in particular SAP Solutions or individual industry sectors. The country-specific Special Expertise Partnership is a kind of SAP seal of approval that denotes S&T’s comprehensive process-oriented consulting skills and knowledge, as well as its outstanding performance in the field of IT-supported solutions for the insurance sector.

With IMG, which was acquired by S&T early in 2007, the company has access to long-standing experience in the insurance industry. The consulting portfolio ranges from strategy consulting and process design to implementation in standard software systems with subsequent rollout. The focus here is on process consulting for the core insurance business, such as claims, CRM as well as the product development processes. Also the generation of the resulting requirements analyses is crucial. Supporting the introduction of SAP Insurance Modules is a further core competence at S&T DACH.

SAP for Insurance is a SAP industry sector application that provides insurers with a complete range of administrative solutions based on SAP technology, including collection and disbursement systems, incentive and commission management, claims management and product and policy management. Thomas Gaugler, Director of the Insurance Business Unit at SAP (Switzerland) AG comments: “Due to their profound and comprehensive consulting experience in the SAP Insurance environment, our Special Expertise Partners provide customers with extremely high implementation quality.“

“The Special Expertise Partners represent the most successful consulting and development businesses in the respective industry sectors. This relates to factors such as SAP Product know-how, project experience and the number of specially trained consultants and customer references”, explains Klaus Höfter, Business Line Manager for the Insurance Sector & member of the S&T DACH management team. The partner companies have a central role in SAP’s business strategy and are decisively involved in the success of SAP solutions. They can provide a realistic assessment at any time regarding how products are received in the market or regarding the existence of possible functional gaps in the portfolio. SAP uses such information to drive innovation and for the further development of its range of applications.
