- SAP Consultancy Firm itelligence Completes its Range of Global Services With Two-Fold Expansion in Asia
itelligence AG announces expansion of its presence in China and opens its first SAP Application Support und Maintenance Center in the country. With an initial 12 employees, itelligence is to provide consultancy and support from its base in Shanghai for SAP Application Support und Maintenance customers throughout Asia in English, Japanese and Chinese. This completes the SAP consultancy firm's global application support service.
Uwe Bohnhorst, COO of itelligence AG: "The new SAP Application Support and Maintenance Center in Asia is evidence of itelligence's growing global presence and confirmation of the importance to our customers of Asia as a region and China, in particular, as an economic location. The new support center is also an important component of itelligence's global customer support network.
At the same time, the SAP Application Support and Maintenance Center is an addition to the maintenance services provided for the increasing number of Chinese customers on site. Customers throughout China can be served from the modern office complex that complies with the high safety standards of SAS 70. In this respect, the SAP Application Support and Maintenance Center and the new branch in South China complement one another.
Andreas Leidloff, Director of itelligence AG, Asia: itelligence has very successfully established itself in this fast-growth Chinese market and already provides a wide range of services for local and international customers. We intend to expand this significantly with these new investments.
In addition to the SAP Maintenance Centre in Shanghai, the full-service IT provider is opening a consultation facility in Shenzhen, a city with around ten million inhabitants in South China. The city is located in the border zone with Hong Kong, China's most heavily populated region, and has a fast-growing economy serving both the Chinese and the international markets. With on-site employees in the new branch, itelligence's enhanced service will particularly benefit Chinese customers in South China: SAP consultancy and license sales will be expanded here.
The SAP All-in-One industry solutions, enhanced with special itelligence AG industry features for the hi-tech, automotive supplier and machinery and plant construction industries, in particular, will make it easier for Chinese customers to export their products. Customers will benefit from itelligence's commitment. For example, the full-service provider's industry solutions already include processing customs warehousing formalities.
itelligence AG is extremely familiar with the Chinese market. The full-service IT provider established itself in Shanghai as early as 2007. itelligence China was made an SAP Gold Partner in 2010.
