The annual SAPPHIRE conference will be held again in Orlando, USA from May 16-18, 2017. United VARs will be an exhibitor at the event again this year together with three local partners: Answerthink, Illumiti and Seidor.
In addition to holding talks with international customers, there will be also be a focus on networking, especially with SAP representatives or other partners.
United VARS was established in 2006, by All for One Steeb AG and Seidor S.A, Barcelona. with six SAP resellers in 10 countries. The group now embraces 40 partners from 80 countries and serves as a powerful one-stop provider for the SAP activities of its global clients.

The concept is designed around the best-of-breed strategy from the local market leader with a profound knowledge of the country, market and culture, which results in a delivered solution that optimizes business processes, reduce costs, and complements business strategies.
“As a global VAR of SAP, we want to be faster in implementing innovations, closely guide the development of more powerful and service-oriented real-time business models and rapidly expand our own portfolio of solutions for the SAP HANA Cloud platform with support for SAP S/4 HANA, cloud solutions from SAP, as well as solutions from SuccessFactors, Ariba and Hybris,” explained Detlef Mehlmann, United VARs Director and Head of Business Development International at All for One Steeb AG.
