San Fang Honored with “Best Strategic Partnership” Awards
MANILA, November 18, 2021 – Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products and a Salesforce partner, today announced that it has recognized its client San Fang Chemical Industrial Company of Taiwan with a “Best Strategic Partnership Award” at its Global Client Forum 2021 in Southeast Asia. The recognition celebrates this industry-leading organization’s strategic vision in continuously striving to stay ahead of the competition and market dynamics by optimizing its existing core technologies and investing in new technologies and resources. As a result of its engagement with Rimini Street, San Fang was able to unlock savings from its annual maintenance and IT budgets to direct investments into innovative solutions to meet its business growth goals and increased production requirements.
A Strategic Partnership to Support Business Transformation Goals
A client since 2018, San Fang Chemical relies on Rimini Street to support its Oracle E-Business Suite application and Oracle Database software. By leveraging Rimini Street Support, the global manufacturer and distributor of artificial leather products was able to significantly reduce its annual maintenance cost, while maintaining its robust Oracle system for a minimum of 15 years from the time that they switched vendors, with no forced upgrades required for maintaining full support. With its newly liberated savings, San Fang was able to re-invest in digital transformation and cloud infrastructure projects to support its growing business.
“Since engaging Rimini Street, we have realized cost savings as well as efficiencies in human resources deployment, optimal resources allocation and management, leading to a significant increase in our overall business operations. The most notable difference is that we now enjoy a broader range of services and a higher quality of support for significantly less than we were paying the vendor,” said Heidi Hsu, IT manager, San Fang Chemical.
Optimize, Modernize, Transform
The Rimini Street Global Client Forum 2021 in Southeast Asia brought together clients, partners and industry professionals to discuss how investments in technology are fundamental to accelerating digitization and ensuring future resiliency. Themed “Optimize, Modernize, and Transform,” the forum explored insights from industry experts on how enterprise CIOs can better collaborate with their business stakeholders to ensure IT investments are optimized. It also addressed how a strategic partnership with Rimini Street can accelerate an organization’s innovation goals and ultimately help boost their business growth.
“San Fang represents a shift in thinking in competitive strategy across Southeast Asia, which is focused around unlocking the over-spend on ERP and core transaction systems within their current IT operating budgets to help fund critical digital innovation projects that enhance competitive advantage and support growth,” said Seth A. Ravin, Rimini Street CEO. “This strategic thinking and approach to its IT spend and enterprise software roadmap sets San Fang – as well as our thousands of other clients around the world – apart from the competitors in their industry. We are proud to work with these forward-thinking organizations who recognize that they have the ability to transform their business immediately without additional budget spend – just by partnering with Rimini Street for their current and future Oracle, SAP, IBM, Microsoft and Salesforce IT needs.”
