arcplan Welcomes MPS Partners to Channel Partner Community

The two companies align to provide simplified business intelligence to the SAP community

Wayne, PA, USA / Langenfeld, Germany – June 5, 2013 – International business intelligence software provider arcplan is pleased to announce that MPS Partners is its newest Channel Partner. MPS Partners' extensive SAP and Microsoft knowledge combined with arcplan's powerful BI platform will allow the two companies to deliver world-class dashboards, scorecards, and reporting solutions to SAP clients. 

MPS Partners has worked with SAP customers for years, integrating disparate SAP solutions with the Microsoft platform. Its team often uses Microsoft SQL Server to improve the performance of SAP systems and delivers business intelligence through the SharePoint portal. A partnership with arcplan makes sense, as arcplan's core strength is the seamless integration of multiple data sources, including SAP BW, SAP BW-IP, SAP ECC (R/3) and Microsoft SQL Server. In fact, arcplan has been ranked as the most widely used BI frontend to SAP BW eight years in a row.

MPS Partners plans to sell and implement arcplan for SAP customers who need a simple yet successful business intelligence solution for easy-to-use dashboards, mobile BI, and self-service reporting. 

MPS Partners and arcplan will offer SAP customers:

  • A BI solution that leverages the company's current infrastructure investments
  • Short deployment time – arcplan is the #1 Enterprise Reporting Vendor in Project Length according to the BI Survey 12
  • Integration with Microsoft Excel that offers secure, real-time data access and write-back
  • Excellent usability for all levels of decision makers
  • Deep and broad data integration, joining data from SAP and non-SAP sources into a single table, report or dashboard

"We believe arcplan will help our customers get more value from their SAP and Microsoft investments," said Bill Topel, Managing Partner of MPS Partners. "We want to offer them a BI platform with a low TCO, powerful SAP frontend, and cost effective implementation timeline."

John Kozlowski, Director of North American Alliances at arcplan, explained, "Reporting and analytics within an SAP environment can be cumbersome and costly. MPS Partners uniquely understands the needs of SAP customers, and recognized that organizations looking for a better way to get information of their systems come to arcplan. The partnership is a win for both sides – and a triumph for SAP customers."
