Andover, MA- ALKU has been successfully staffing within the SAP world for over 10 years, providing high level technical and functional SAP resources to large and mid-sized companies throughout the U.S. This will be ALKU’s seventh year exhibiting at the SAPPHIRE NOW ASUG Annual Conference to continue supporting their growing client needs across the entire SAP space.
Through exhibiting at this conference, ALKU’s SAP team has been able to establish and build upon new and old relationships with customers and consultants in the SAP marketplace. In addition, this conference has presented valuable face to face networking opportunities for ALKU’s sales team with various SAP clients. “Being able to meet managers and clients in person and not only interact but catch up with them at SAPPHIRE NOW has grown ALKU’s SAP client base immensely over the past few years.” Said Erin McCormick, SAP Account Manager. “It goes a long way to be able to speak to them in person as opposed to over the phone. Not only just with new clients that we are targeting or clients we’ve never heard but it has also furthered our relationships with current clients that ALKU has been working with for years. Some of my best clients have come from this tradeshow.”
At SAPPHIRE NOW ALKU has also been able to learn about the new SAP tools and market trends in turn allowing the ALKU team to proactively recruit for future SAP skillsets and resources for their clients. A great example of this was SuccessFactors, during previous conferences ALKU was able to become further educated with SuccessFactors and network with skilled consultants and clients to staff these projects specifically. ALKU mimicked this strategy recently with s/4 HANA developing new relationships with clients and consultants, ultimately allowing ALKU to better support s/4 HANA clients. “This is our seventh year attending SAPPHIRE NOW and every year we have been able to learn about the new trends that will be emerging within the SAP world.” Said Dan Alberico SAP Recruiting Manager. “By learning these new trends, we have been able to be very proactive in identifying which clients are planning on implementing these new technologies. We have also been able to find the consultants that have the true hands-on experience. We found huge success in this strategy with SAP SuccessFactors. We have kept with this process regarding s4/HANA, identifying clients that have or are planning to implement as well as the consultants that have already gone through these implementations.” ALKU is eager to see what this year has in store and what the new and hot trends will be.
