Bluefin Solutions customer SThree, awarded Silver in the 2012 SAP UKI Quality Awards
Bluefin Solutions customer SThree was selected as the Silver winner of the SAP UKI Quality Award in the Small Implementation category.
SThree needed to enable a roadmap of HR and Finance related initiatives, so undertook a project to have its SAP ERP system upgraded whilst simultaneously implementing SAP Solution Manager 7.1.
SThree can now operate the latest version of SAP ECC, with Enhancement Pack 5. This unlocks a huge amount of potential for the business in exploiting new functionality within the suite and supporting strategic business growth plans. Furthermore, with SAP Solution Manager 7.1 the business now has a detailed mapping of all business processes including documentation, transactions and test scripts. This provides the ability to quickly analyse future systems changes against their process to identify risks and opportunities.

The Quality Awards recognise customers who have achieved excellence in planning and executing their SAP projects, delivering significant benefits to their organisations. Each winner showcased the quality processes they put in place during planning and implementation phases, clearly demonstrating how fundamental they had been to the overall success of the project, resulting in significant benefits to their businesses. The judging panel was made up of representatives from SAP and external experts who judged against strict criteria including adherence to SAP's Ten Quality Principles, demonstration of time-to-value and a focus of how quality excellence was achieved through the entire implementation cycle.
