“Investing in information systems, key for survival”

11 October, 2020

The PBSS Group withstood the storms of the Covid-19 due to the information system that was in place which enabled the company to operate without any hindrance, said PBSS Group Chairman Madura Gamanayake responding to the question which corporates would survive in the new normal.

He said only entities be it business or service oriented with a sound system and infrastructure would withstand crises of this nature and or even worse ones in the future.

“Investing in an information system is vital for any business to survive. PBSS Group was recognised as the partner of the year at the SAP conference in India due to its commitment to innovation, technology and on time delivery of services,” Gamanayake said.

The PBSS Group was recently recognised and awarded as the SAP Business One Partner of the Year 2019 for the India South Sub Continent competing with India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at the SAP Partner Award Ceremony. The company bagged the accolade for making the highest number of new sales during the 2019 financial year. PBSS is a leading SAP Business One Gold partner in Sri Lanka and this award is another endorsement of their excellence.

“We had over 50 percent growth in new inquiries during the height of the crisis,” Gamanayake said.

However, the company’s overseas operations were affected by the pandemic that brought travel to a standstill.

The awards recognise top partners for excellence in overall sales, innovation, technology and services, as well as in solution-specific areas. “This is another feather in our cap on our journey towards achieving greater heights as an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions provider here and abroad,” Gamanayake said. Winners of the regional awards for partner excellence were selected from SAP’s wide-ranging partner base, and nominations were based on SAP’s internal sales data.

A steering committee composed of regional and global SAP representatives determined the winning partners in each category per region according to numerous criteria, such as sales achievement and performance. “The hard work and commitment of our team to lift the bar of service standards enabled us to clinch the award,” Gamanayake said, adding that achieving such a feat competing with India and Bangladesh was not a cake walk.

PBSS Group is the one of the leading software providers and the Gold Partner for SAP Business One in Sri Lanka with over 700 customers. They have completed over 100 SAP Business One implementations of ERP systems in Sri Lanka and throughout the region.
