PRESS RELEASE: MTN Business enters into a strategic partnership with Britehouse, a SAP partner

MTN Business announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Britehouse, a SAP channel and services partner. Through this partnership, MTN Business becomes one of the first telecommunications providers of the SAP(r) Business One Cloud solution in South Africa. The solution will be branded MTN Business ERP and is the first product offering within the MTN Business ERP portfolio, with more solutions to be added in the future.

Commenting on the relationship, Kanagaratnam Lambotharan (Lambo), Chief Enterprise Business Officer (CEBO), former CTO, at MTN SA, said: "We are pleased to join hands with Britehouse to address the growing demand of SAP solutions in South Africa. This will enhance our cutting-edge capabilities of the delivery of state-of-the-art services and business excellence to our customers."

MTN Business ERP is a cloud based, integrated business management solution designed for small businesses or subsidiaries of large enterprises. It is a full end-to-end solution, available for purchase from MTN Business, that integrates all core business functions across a company, including financials, sales, customer relationship management, inventory and operations.

"Bringing this end-to-end solution to our customers allows MTN to further leverage our MPLS network and Internet access investment. Furthermore, this solution complements our existing range of MTN cloud services available to the market, which aligns to our MTN Business growth strategy;" adds Lambotharan.

Unlike many other small business solutions on the market, this solution offers businesses a single application to manage critical business processes, eliminating the need for separate installations and complex integration of multiple modules.

"The purpose of ERP is to facilitate the flow of information between all business functions inside the boundaries of an organisation, as well as to manage outside stakeholders," adds Lambotharan. "The MTN Business ERP solution allows customers to achieve just this, with the benefits of cost and risk optimisation as well as strategic agility."

MTN Business is currently the only service provider that can offer this complete solution to the market, encompassing connectivity, device, and solution access as a single offering. What's more, as it is a cloud based solution, it is easy to set up, use as well as customise to meet the changing needs of a business.

MTN Business is leveraging its extensive network footprint to provide access to the solution for customers looking to manage their businesses from anywhere at any time. This means that customers can have up to the second information and control of their business activities no matter their location. Access to the solution is done via an online portal or through an application on a mobile device. This partnership is another example of how MTN Business is creating a full comprehensive ICT value proposition to the market.

"MTN is committed to partnerships that complement MTN's strengths in the local market and this is another demonstration of that promise. The integrated ERP capabilities of MTN Business enable customers to streamline and optimise operations, increase business insight, and reduce total cost of ownership. This will result in increased business agility through the flexibility to size up or down based on changing business requirements with limited investment risk," concludes Lambotharan.

SAP Business One is used in more than 120 countries globally with localised versions offered in countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Brazil, China, and now is available in South Africa.
