Company already leveraging Rimini Street support for SAP products, expands support services scope to include Salesforce products
LAS VEGAS, March 14, 2019 – Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products and a Salesforce partner, today announced that EBSCO Industries, a global holding company with more than 26 business units around the world, has chosen Rimini Street Application Management Services (AMS) for Salesforce to maximize the value and ROI of their Salesforce investment. EBSCO has been successfully leveraging Rimini Street support for its SAP system since 2015, and has now expanded their Rimini Street support service scope to include its Salesforce system.
EBSCO Leverages Rimini Street AMS for Salesforce
Many of EBSCO's business units use Salesforce to help grow their business, and they want to maximize the effectiveness of their Salesforce investment. EBSCO selected Rimini Street's AMS for Salesforce for the same high quality support, ultra-responsive service, creative problem solving and support for customizations that they were already enjoying with their Rimini Street support for SAP.
"Our company is made up of numerous business divisions that operate independently of each other, but we were looking to optimize our systems and where possible offer leveraged shared services either at a better cost, speed or quality than any business unit can provide individually. When we heard that Rimini Street could provide its premium-level service for our Salesforce system, in addition to the high quality support they already provide for our mission-critical SAP system, we were excited by the opportunity to unify our service," said Bryan Bee, vice president, Enterprise IT Systems, EBSCO. "When we first switched to Rimini Street in 2015, our goal was to enable EBSCO's businesses to optimize their profit position while making IT 'easy' with demonstrative value. Rimini Street has helped us deliver on this goal, providing an ultra-responsive support model that allows us to maximize the investments in our SAP platform – all at half the previous cost. Leveraging Rimini Street's Application Management Services for Salesforce was a logical next step."
