K5 Business Awarded Support Contract

At the beginning of the year, K5 ERP Solutions was awarded a SAP implementation project by Grindrod Management Services. Yesterday afternoon, six months later, Group IT Manager Cliff McCormick confirmed that K5 has been selected as their SAP Basis support partner for Management Services.

K5’s Managing Director David Bann said “the implementation of Grindrod’s new HR SAP system went very smoothly thanks to our highly experienced team. We partnered very well with NorthgateArinso who handled the functional side of things, and I believe that the success of the project is based on the excellent communication between Grindrod, Northgate and ourselves”

Bann continued to say, “we are excited about the new support contract – we know the system backwards and have no doubt that we will provide Grindrod with a support service that exceeds their expectations”
