Partner Pinnacle Award Nominations Are Now Open

SAP Partner Pinnacle Awards Recognize the Best in SAP Partnering Activities

For those who might be unfamiliar with this program, the SAP Pinnacle Awards represent SAP´s premier global partner recognition program. With these awards, SAP recognizes those partners who have excelled in developing their partnership with SAP and in promoting our mutual business activities and priorities — and, of course, the interests of our mutual customers by providing quality products, solutions and services — in the previous year.

Today,  the online nomination form is now open and ready for submissions.  All partners with a valid Partner Agreement in place are eligible to participate, but please note that you will require an S-User to access this site in the Partner Portal.

Partners Are Invited — Encouraged! — to Submit Nominations

If you belong to an SAP partner company, you may access the Pinnacle Awards 2009 website for details and to submit your nominations, using a completely web-based process. The selection criteria for each award is available on that website to help you understand the content to be included in the written submission. Please apply for the award(s) — multiple submissions for different categories is perfectly fine — where you think your company’s solutions and activities best meet the criteria stated.  Deadline: (lucky) Friday February 13, 2009.
