We don’t make ERP or database software like Oracle and SAP. We support and manage that software. Over the past 15 years, we have helped over 3,000 clients save billions of dollars. It’s because we are built for support. Built to help clients avoid costly fees and ERP upgrades, so they can innovate and fuel growth. Other companies do software. We do support.
Rimini Street delivers integrated Application Management Services plus Levels 2 through 4 ERP support for enterprise software.
Companies and IT organizations that provide technology support services (either internally or externally) are struggling to find a service approach that moves knowledge closer to their customers—one that lowers costs, improves customer experiences, and, importantly, balances technology and the human connection.
Saving at least 50% on SAP support costs to leverage the investment made in implementing an existing SAP system is an attractive proposition for most IT leaders, especially in today’s economic stress. Third-party support provides this option. In fact, Gartner calls “third-party support a safe haven.”
ERP and database vendors don’t want you to know who we are, or that we’ve saved our clients nearly $5B to date on support fees. Rimini Street is a global partner organizations can trust to help cut costs to drive innovation and growth. Other companies do software. We do support.
Adoption of third-party support for enterprise software is now mainstream. Independent research firm Valoir analyzed its growing acceptance, finding that demand is widespread — from cost-cutters to innovators to a variety of companies in-between. Even ERP vendors reluctantly acknowledge its utility as they focus efforts on the cloud. Independent, third-party support has evolved into a strategic portfolio management tool for enterprise applications, gaining broader strategic acceptance from its origins as a cost containment tactic. Valoir found that its versatility facilitates: Innovation around the edges of a mature, highly functional ERP system Maximizing value from existing investments Taking a measured approach to cloud evolution Digital transformation Tactically, independent, third-party software support helps CIOs save resources and keep IT teams engaged with new initiatives rather than routine support. Strategically, it helps CIOs meet business objectives, demonstrate value, and move to a Business-Driven Roadmap from one dictated by an ERP vendor. In analyzing third-party enterprise software support providers, Valoir specifically recognized Rimini Street for its: Breadth of knowledge and depth of support, featuring a Primary Support Engineer model Pure focus on independent, third-party support versus other IT or consulting services Track record of strong client relationships Value, service, price
In a dynamic business environment, it’s critical to have expert, responsive IT resources available to help maximize productivity and drive growth, often within the constraints of a reduced or frozen budget. Application management services (AMS) seem like a good option to consider on a limited budget. Lower priced plans seem ripe for cost savings, yet traditional AMS models staffed with lower-skilled resources can deliver lower value at higher than expected costs. This results in an AMS “tax” where companies contracting with traditional AMS providers overpay for suboptimal value. Rimini Street has a solution: a single provider, integrated AMS + enterprise software support model that reduces costs and frees up IT teams for critical growth initiatives. Rimini Street support teams resolve incidents and root causes with no ERP vendor dependency, no lower-skilled resources, and no hidden costs. The results: seamless AMS and enterprise software support improved total cost of ownership (TCO) for ERP systems and applications better business outcomes Download the eBook “Optimizing Application Management Services (AMS) to Drive Business Growth” for more information on avoiding the AMS “tax” and funding innovation in a dynamic economy.
