K5 Business One Announces an Agreement with SAP to Introduce Business Management Solution to South African Companies

Durban – 25 April 2013 — K5 Business One today announced an agreement with SAP South Africa to deliver the SAP Business One application to small businesses in South Africa.  An integrated, affordable business management application designed specifically for small and growing businesses as well as for subsidiaries of large enterprises running SAP solutions in their headquarter, SAP Business One extends the benefits of SAP’s business applications to a rapidly growing segment of customers.  As an authorized channel partner for SAP Business One, K5 Business One will provide the South African region businesses with the technology, business process and consulting knowledge to easily adopt successful, long-term IT strategies.

“We are very excited that we are now able to offer our customers best of breed Enterprise Resource Planning and related software from SAP. This partnership will allow us to fulfil our mission of empowering businesses and help them dominate their respective markets”, says David Bann, Managing Director of K5 Business One.

K5’s Financial Director, Steve Dunford adds, “Being able to sell SAP product licenses is a new and exciting opportunity for K5 Business One which has traditionally focused on the sale of SAP services including project management, support, training, consulting and 3rd party product development to clients after they had bought licenses directly from SAP. This represents a new revenue stream that will complement K5’s successful implementation and support businesses.”

With offices in Durban, K5 Business One is responding to a growing need among small businesses struggling to gain and maintain competitive operating advantages.  The partnership will provide software and consulting services to enable small businesses with limited resources and technology infrastructure to gain immediate benefits in better managing their businesses.  Together, K5 Business One and SAP will provide small businesses the ability to make smart IT decisions, improve future performance, and achieve long-term IT success with little financial or strategic risk.
