Viernheim (Germany) January 18th 2017 – After 2016, the SAP partner all4cloud will again post record results for 2017. In 2017, sales grew by 50% while the number of employees increased by 30%. The company cites above-average growth of the solution-based partner business as well as the acquisition of new international customers as drivers of this growth. Beyond this, the 100% cloud company received several awards such as the SAP Excellence Award for being the most successful SAP Business ByDesign Partner in the Central and Eastern European region.
Henrik Hausen, CEO of all4cloud, says:
The Cloud ERP market is growing and so are we. Companies are recognizing that Cloud ERP systems are accelerating their processes and that they can therefore better organize themselves.
This popularity once again provided the Viernheim-based company with a record-setting year. Never before has the company acquired more customers than it did in 2017. These new customers helped create a significant increase in both sales (+50 percent over 2016) and the number of employees (+30 percent over 2016). Hausen’s statement is confirmed by data received from the BITKOM monitor 2017: based on this data, currently 2 out of 3 companies use cloud services. And an additional 18 percent are planning or discussing the implementation of cloud services.
Reception ensures record-setting result – the trend will continue in 2018
According to BITKOM monitor, companies were particularly convinced by the mobile access to IT resources (77%). Approximately 62 percent see advantages in that IT services are more quickly scalable and can be more flexibly deployed.
The market growth is reflected in our customer projects,
notes Hausen. An increasing number of potential customers are approaching the company with this claim. The goal for the coming year is therefore clear:
We also want to grow in 2018 – at least double-digit growth and, if possible, above-average growth. This applies to both the revenue as well as the number of customers and employees.
The market can support this, Hausen adds. In addition, SAP is investing heavily in the cloud segment, since it is becoming very interesting for an increasing number of companies.
Business with partners and international customers is growing
all4cloud also wants to achieve growth through its international customers. In this year, the company has already acquired numerous international projects, such as in The Netherlands, Spain, Serbia, Ireland and the United Arab Emirates. Both the implementation of SAP Business ByDesign as well as in-house add-ons such as eam4cloud or scan4cloud were the basis for the numerous international projects. Wolfgang Kröner, Co-CEO at all4cloud and responsible for the international business says:
We have invested a lot in our international strategy. With AGILTA and DyFlex Solutions we have gained two very prestigious and successful partners for Switzerland and Austria. Our plan now is to significantly expand the international business in the coming years and to also establish ourselves internationally.
Awards and distinctions: Rewards for the team
Apart from the acquisition of numerous customers and new partners, all4cloud was also able to accept awards and distinctions. At the beginning of the year, the company was given the SAP Partner Excellence Award and was voted as the most successful SAP Business ByDesign partner in the Central and Eastern European (MEE) region. In the late fall, the distinction “Cloud Challenge 2017” for the mobile warehouse app scan4cloud, which runs on the SAP Cloud platform, followed. Beyond this, SAP reaffirmed the company’s distinction as SAP Recognized Expertise and recognized its maintenance solution eam4cloud for its ability to integrate into SAP Business ByDesign.
We are a very agile company that has flat hierarchies. These awards do not just underscore our status as one of the most successful cloud ERP partners of SAP. They are also a very nice reward for our team, which is fully committed and works really hard.
