Qnovate, Through Participation in SAP Co-Innovation Lab, Develops and Delivers CRM Functionality Designed for the Chemical Industry
May 12, 2014 (Newswire) - Qnovate, a leading provider of customer relationship management solutions and an SAP partner, today announced availability of its QEdge Chemical Value Add-Ons for the SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) application. This portfolio of add-ons and packaged services for SAP CRM is designed to address specific requirements for customers in the chemical industry.
QEdge Chemical Value Add-Ons for SAP CRM integrates with the SAP ERP application and SAP CRM and provides end-to-end business processes - from lead generation to opportunity tracking to closing sales. In addition to the functionality provided by the SAP solutions, the QEdge portfolio provides added capabilities designed for customers in the chemical industry, such as chemical sample management or dynamic list uploading of opportunities and contacts to support massive data imports after trade shows.
"Chemical companies need CRM solutions that are easy to use and support critical business processes, including sample management," said Frank Kochendoerfer, vice president, Strategic Industries at Qnovate. "Qnovate's QEdge Chemical Value Add-Ons for SAP CRM delivers these needed features and functionality. The portfolio is specifically designed to meet industry requirements, from chemical sample management and dynamic CRM data upload to enhanced report formatting capabilities, helping to provide improved integration with ERP solutions and to duplicate record checks."
Through its participation in the SAP Co-Innovation Lab, Qnovate worked with SAP to integrate and test the new add-ons. The SAP Co-Innovation Lab was instrumental in helping drive this project. Specifically, SAP provided the infrastructure for testing the solution, helped to integrate the on-premise deployment of SAP CRM running in an SAP HANA Cloud Integration technology-based environment, and also provided the rapid-deployment support for development of the add-ons.
"Qnovate's Edge Chemical Value Add-Ons portfolio for SAP CRM complements SAP's innovative IT solutions, offering additional CRM capabilities designed specifically with chemical companies in mind," said Don Mahoney, Vice President and Global Head, Chemical Industry Business Solutions, SAP. "We recognize that the sales and field service needs of chemical companies are different from those in other industries. With this new portfolio of solutions from Qnovate - developed through participation with the SAP Co-Innovation Lab - customers will be enabled to create added value that will help improve performance and productivity and can increase user adoption."
Qnovate supports SAP CRM offered in an on-premise environment and the SAP Cloud for Customer solution, not only from a systems-integration perspective but also by offering strategic consulting and hybrid deployment services (i.e., concurrent use of on-premise and cloud solutions). Such hybrid environments are important for customers who have already made investments in on-premise deployments but have the need for an alternative and potentially more flexible or mobile solution that, among other expected benefits, can better enable their field sales force.
Qnovate is an SAP channel partner specializing in solutions and services that help chemical companies to increase efficiency and leverage the competitive benefits of their deployments of SAP solutions. Qnovate is led by a team of seasoned managers with deep SAP solution-based and industry expertise and a proven track record of deploying successful projects involving SAP software - evident by our growing base of loyal customers.
