Deloitte Southeast Asia expands relationship with SAP to provide comprehensive business solutions and services
SINGAPORE, 16 June 2014 — Deloitte Southeast Asia is now a value-added reseller (VAR) of SAP® products and product maintenance support services through a global value-added reseller agreement signed by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (Deloitte Global) with SAP. This agreement permits participating Deloitte member firms, such as Deloitte Southeast Asia, to resell SAP® products and product maintenance support services under a single global framework. As a result, participating Deloitte member firms will be able to offer more complete business solutions that include SAP software and SAP maintenance, as well as industry-specific pre-configured solutions, implementation services, and application maintenance support services.
This new agreement enables Deloitte Southeast Asia to resell SAP software offerings directly to clients, allowing clients to tap into the power of SAP solutions through a single supplier in one packaged transaction. Deloitte is one of the very few SAP Partners participating in the global VAR program, which has specific entry requirements that include global coverage, reseller capabilities and SAP services.
"Here in Southeast Asia, there is a trend in the marketplace where clients are looking for creative approaches to lower cost of ownership, accelerate benefits and preserve high quality through the implementation of SAP solutions,” said Angeline Leong, Executive Director, Deloitte Consulting, Southeast Asia. “By being part of SAP’s VAR program, Deloitte Southeast Asia is able to provide greater convenience to our clients by offering a one-stop service that fulfills their needs."

Deloitte Global’s global VAR agreement with SAP comes in addition to its long-standing commitment to SAP and its strategic alliance program. Deloitte member firms’ worldwide practices dedicated to SAP solutions now totals more than 11,000 practitioners in over 135 countries.
