All for One Steeb AG also earned the distinction of being the only German company recognised with an award this year. Most of the winners within the 19 Pinnacle Award categories are globally operating corporations including IBM, HP, Accenture, Atos, Tata Consultancy, Cap Gemini, Deloitte and Open Text, some of which took first place in multiple categories. The finalists and winners in 19 categories were based on field recommendations, customer feedback and performance indicators in the following four categories: co-innovation, market penetration and expansion, service delivery, and sustainability.

»We congratulate All for One Steeb on its well-deserved receipt of a 2013 SAP Pinnacle award and for its outstanding partnership with SAP«, said Eric Duffaut, corporate officer and president, Global Ecosystem and Channels, SAP. »SAP is an innovative and fast-growth company. We put customer success at the center of everything we do. Our vibrant and expanding ecosystem of partners is critical to the company we are now and the company we want to become in the future.

Partners like All for One Steeb are our force multipliers, and today, more than ever, they are essential to our customers’ success«, added Duffaut.

Duffaut also underscored the importance of the SAP partner ecosystem at the recent presentation of the awards in conjunction with the SAP Leadership Forum at SAPPIRE NOW in Orlando, Florida. This forum regularly brings together an exclusive group of leaders and executives representing SAP clients, potential customers and partners, and provides an unparalleled opportunity for networking and the exchange of business ideas. All for One Steeb chief executive officer Lars Landwehrkamp was pleased to comment, »Above all else, this award is SAP’s way of recognising the outstanding developments among our many customers in the fields of machinery and equipment manufacturing, the automotive supplier industry, project services, and of course in technical wholesaling and the consumer-goods industry«.
