ROC Partners with Quintisys to Establish ROC France
London: leading SAP HCM specialist ROC, has today announced a joint venture (JV) with Benelux-based SAP HR consultancy Quintisys to establish a business for the French and Swiss markets. The jointly owned company will be known as ROC France.
ROC France will incorporate an operation that has already been established in Paris by Quintisys. The combined force of the JV will aim to penetrate the French and Swiss markets to help organizations in the region implement the full range of SAP’s HCM suite. ROC France is a major step towards ROC’s business objective of becoming the largest global SAP HCM specialist by the end of 2008.
In addition to the French initiative, ROC and Quintisys have signed a cooperation agreement denoting their partnership, where Quintisys leads projects conducted in the Benelux region and ROC is the prominent brand for projects in other international locations. The partnership will prove hugely beneficial to ROC and Quintisys clients and partners, as it allows the companies to deepen their specialization in SAP HCM, provide a broader spectrum of services and have a larger workforce to resource collaborative projects.
Les Hayman, chairman of ROC and ex CEO of SAP EMEA commented: “ROC France is a hugely positive move for ROC in its bid to become the largest global SAP HCM specialist. ROC France underlines our commitment to SAP. Partnering with Quintisys has given ROC a springboard into the French market – having on the ground teams, with the local knowledge, language and culture is imperative in making this a success. The two companies are very closely aligned in terms of approach – entrepreneurial, creative and above all passionate about HCM".
David Goodman, founding director of Quintisys enthused: “This cooperation agreement is a great boost to Quintisys. We look forward to the benefits that global capacity will bring to our people, clients and partners. Together, ROC and Quintisys have made a commitment to further develop the French, Swiss and Benelux markets and the combined force is sure to make the enterprise a successful one".
