Whether you are just starting out on your SAP journey or are live and need to expand your SAP Solution footprint, you may find you need SAP consulting in one or more of the core SAP modules. That's why you may need staff augmentation or the use of an outsourced team from one of the best sap consulting companies in the USA.
This is especially prevalent when you're implementing or upgrading your SAP BW system. Unfortunately, the best SAP consultant is usually a highly qualified SAP freelance consultant, holds one or more SAP Certifications and is in short supply! A SAP Functional Consultant in certain areas, like SAP TM, is very difficult to find. A SAP Project Manager is an even rarer breed. That is why a high SAP Consulting Salary is not unusual.
In our never quest to be considered one the best sap implementation companies we have developed a network of over 10,500 SAP certified consultants to call upon. You need the A-Team! No matter the specific skillset required, we probably have it available in our network.
Each SAP ERP Consultant has been vetted by us and they have provided constant feedback for us to improve our service offering, which includes extensive 'real world' consultant development skill development. That feedback, coupled with our own hands-on implementation service, is what allowed us to develop an Industry Unique Delivery Methodology that helps assure your success.
Our On-Shore SAP Consulting support delivery capability is staffed with Senior SAP Consultants who are equipped with advanced support delivery tools. This allows our clients to 'subscribe' to our SAP support service.
Combined with the unique 'roll over' minutes model, it means we can deliver just the SAP consulting support you need and if you don't need all the hours you contract for during a given period, they simply roll over for use at a later time. We believe this is the best SAP industry solutions consulting model available in the marketplace today.
In order to ensure our customers have access to the widest possible array of specialist SAP Consulting skills, such as DFPS, we have developed extensive partner relationships with a large number of both SAP and non-SAP partners. Our ability to combine SAP with Salesforce for example, allows us to bring high performance CRM capabilities to you at minimum cost.
Though the concept of ERP is widely applicable to most industries, each industry typically has specific requirements. That is why SAP has developed Industry Specific Solutions.
They have over 30 Industry Specific solutions and in order to implement them, you typically need SAP Consultants who have been trained on the SAP Industry Specific Solution. For instance, SAP IS-Retail has a month long Academy and is only run occasionally. With more than 12,000 SAP retail Customers, this means it is often difficult to find SAP Retail Consulting expertise.
There are many industries and solutions within the SAP Industry Specific Solution Portfolio that are even more difficult to recruit for.
One such industry, which is the most difficult of all to recruit for and is the core industry solution of the company founder, is MRO or Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul.
This is because it requires actual hands-on experience repairing airplanes, typically in the military and then experience gained working on SAP Airline MRO projects or in some cases, MRO repair facilities. Within the MRO space, there are even rarer specialties, such as SAP Warranty Management, which has only a few practitioners. Though technically a part of the EAM or Enterprise Asset Management solution, it is of such complexity and importance to companies that SAP Warranty Specialist are considered unicorns.
Some of our other industry focus areas include the complex world of FDA CFR 21 Part 11 Regulation compliance, which is especially critical to medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies.
In order to provide this expertise to our clients, we have worked on these types of projects and developed specific, unique expertise.
Other practice areas where we have particular expertise and a 'network' include Postal, Logistics, Travel & Transportation, Railroad, Shipping and Professional Services.
In addition, we have deep expertise with e-commerce and the fashion industry.
Please keep in mind there is usually some lead time required to align these specialized consultants with your project timeline, so a fixed price project is at best, infeasible and at worst, unstaffable. However, our deep bench exist for these types of roles.

We strive to have our consultants SAP Certified in one or more modules.
Getting the very best SAP Consultants on your project must be your goal. This is not always easy, especially if the primary criteria is to hire the cheapest versus the best. The best are rarely cheap, and a project is unlikely to succeed unless it has the A-Team
How unlikely is it to succeed? According to Gartner, 100% of the time.
One of the key if not The Critical Success Factors of a successful SAP Implementation (successful meaning the goals of the business case were met) is active and highly visible executive sponsorship. This has to be present from before the contract is signed until well after the system is live and stable.
No less important than executive sponsorship to a successful ERP implementation is having engaged customers. This means that key business stakeholders, not just the IT department, are aligned with the goals of the project.
This is one of the pre-requisites for not just a SAP project but indeed, for any project. But given the typical scale of a SAP project, knowing what the payoff is going to be will prove critical to keeping the project on track.
