UK-based data warehousing firm expands channel business into APAC
ZAP, a data warehouse software company headquartered in the UK, has announced its intention to recruit new partners in the APAC region as part of a broad expansion of its channel efforts.
Founded in 2001, ZAP’s Data Hub software — and its solutions for Microsoft Dynamics, Sage, Salesforce, SAP Business One, and SYSPRO — are used across several industry sectors and utilised by mid-size businesses through to Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 organisations.
The new partner programme will focus on reseller and service partners offering key enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, ranging from SAP, Sage, Microsoft Dynamics, Salesforce, Syspro, and through to more generalised data warehouse solutions.
“The company is experiencing strong customer and partner growth around the world, despite the disruption caused by the pandemic,” says ZAP CEO Garth Laird.
“Our continued focus and emphasis on customer engagement combined with a clear mandate to grow our strategic alliances and channel partners in this region puts us in a strong position.”
Laird says the recently launched Sage Data & Analytics for the Sage 300 ERP solution will be available as a SaaS subscription service — whether the customer is using an on-premises or a cloud instance of Sage 300. This will make their digital transformation journey easier.
ZAP Data Hub’s pre-built reporting solutions are a fast and cost-effective way to get accurate reporting from the most widely used ERP, customer relationship management (CRM), and finance systems.
ZAP Business Intelligence is a business intelligence platform that delivers an integrated data modelling experience and supports all self-service, enterprise, and embedded business intelligence requirements with a centralised view of the business.
It is the fastest way to deliver accurate financial and operational reporting in BI visualisation tools, including Tableau and Power BI. ZAP also has optimised solutions for Microsoft Dynamics, the Sage portfolio, Salesforce, SAP Business One, Syspro, and smart data connectors for many other data sources.
Laird says: “The partnership enables the roll-out of Sage Data & Analytics with expertise in a clear, affordable SaaS product set that delivers ever-increasing, fast return on investment, and a total cost of ownership that is demonstrably reduced thanks to the wide range of add-ons and options that are available.
“The APAC launch of Sage Data & Analytics for Sage 300 customers is the latest chapter in a close-knit, long-standing partnership between ZAP and Sage contributing significant to the continued regional growth,” says Laird.
“It’s an exciting time ahead.”
