Awards were presented by SAP UKI on May 26, 2011, at the Soho Hotel in London. Twelve awards were given to the top-performing SAP partners in UKI for outstanding contributions in revenue growth, marketing and customer service.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Partner of the Year - Line of Business award specifically recognises ROC for its close working relationship with SAP in support of customer engagements involving the SAP&reg; ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) application. The award was presented to ROC by Lizzy Squires, alliances director, SAP UKI.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;ROC is a significant and committed contributor to SAP&rsquo;s line of business,&rdquo; said Squires. &ldquo;Over the last 18 months, ROC has launched its <b>t</b><b>HR</b><b>ive</b> on-demand offering, which provides customers a flexible deployment of SAP ERP HCM, quick time-to-benefits realisation, and mobile capabilities.&rdquo; <b></b></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;We are extremely proud of this achievement,&rdquo; said Jerry Chilvers, global CEO of ROC. &ldquo;As an SAP services partner and an on-demand solution provider, we spend all of our time helping customers get the most from their implementations of the powerful SAP ERP HCM application, in ways that best suit the organisations&rsquo; needs. A lot of hard work has gone into creating our <b>tHRive usability suite,</b> which now underpins most of our self-service deployments, as every organisation knows how important it is to maximise the reach and adoption of SAP software. <b>tHRive</b> makes life easy for all users: HR administrators, line managers and employees. This award is a direct result of all the hard work that has been invested by our solution architects and consultants.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;We are looking forward to the next few years, as cloud availability and ease of adoption become increasingly important key factors in an organisation&rsquo;s software decisions,&rdquo; added Chilvers. &ldquo;<b>tHRive </b>caters to these requirements, so we are well prepared to meet customers&rsquo; expectations.

There are many SAP customers who need to widen the reach of their SAP HCM footprint within the organisation&rdquo; says Damian Williams, VP of <b><em>tHRive</em></b> <em>On Premise</em> Solutions. &ldquo;The <b><em>tHRive</em></b> Usability components underpinning our SAP HCM <em>On Demand</em> platform are built in the latest version (EC6), it was a logical step to release <b><em>tHRive</em></b> as an <em>On Premise</em> Usability Suite. We are also seeing lots of interest for <b><em>tHRive</em></b> <em>On Premise</em> from organisations implementing SAP HCM for the first time as well, as they really need to maximise employee adoption in order to drive out the business benefits that support the investment case.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;ROC has been implementing SAP HCM for more than 12 years now and in that time we have seen what works and what doesn&rsquo;t.&rdquo; says Williams. &ldquo;SAP is great technology and version EC6 gives customers a real opportunity to embrace the whole organisation which has a huge positive effect on business performance. Filling in paper forms is time consuming and a thing of the past. And there is no need for employees, managers or administrators to struggle with technology. Our <b><em>tHRive</em></b> <em>On Premise</em> Usability Solutions address these issues right now for customers who already own the underlying SAP technology, for minimal investment&rdquo;.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A number of customers are operational with both <b><em>tHRive</em></b> <em>On Premise</em> and <b><em>tHRive</em></b> <em>On Demand</em> solutions.

We have a <strong>Usability </strong>theme running through this whole edition as we are seeing this play a significant part in client decision making as ease of adoption by employees becomes ever more critical.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>With <strong>Usability </strong>in mind, ROC is really proud to announce the release of tHRive<strong>-mobile</strong>, which allows employees to access Self Services through mobile technology (currently iPhone). Readers can now&nbsp;download this app which includes an offline demo application as well as live access to one of ROC&rsquo;s tHRive systems. The application is available to all SAP users.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>ROC has also released the tHRive <strong>onPremise</strong> solution suite which addresses many of the issues faced by users of in-house SAP systems. There is a webcast running next week for readers interested in finding out more about one of the solution components - the <strong>HR Admin Console.</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A new industry spotlight section has now been included and in this issue we focus on <strong>Food &amp; Beverage</strong> and some of the challenges faced by&nbsp;companies in this sector. There is an update on <strong>SAP Visualization Solutions by Nakisa</strong> from our renowned Subject Matter Expert, Stephen Burr, and our Chairman, Les Hayman, is now a regular blogger on the HR scene (see below for details).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Finally, we are really proud to have made it into the <strong>Tech Track 100</strong> list for a 2nd year running and would like to thank our customers for continuing to choose ROC as their SAP HCM solution provider.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Oh, and if you are at any of the SAP HCM events below, then please come by our booth and say hello&hellip;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Damian Williams</strong></p> <p><strong>Founder, ROC</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Tech Track 100 Wed, 22 Sep 2010 00:00:00 +0000 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>It is 10 years since the first Sunday Times Tech Track 100 revealed Britain&rsquo;s fastest-growing private technology, telecoms and digital media companies. Since then, successive annual league tables have uncovered several firms that have gone on to become well-known brands and stock-market stars. The tables have also charted changing trends in the knowledge economy as broadband and 3G transform the way companies operate and consumers spend their time and money.</p> <p><br />The financial website, semiconductor business Wolfson Microelectronics and online grocer Ocado are among 23 firms that have floated since appearing in the Tech Track 100. A further 139 have released wealth for their founders and backers through trade sales. For example, the online map provider Multimap was acquired by Microsoft for &pound;24m in 2007; the anti-virus software group MessageLabs was snapped up by Symantec for &pound;400m the following year; and the fashion retailer was acquired by the Swiss luxury-goods company Richemont for &pound;350m in April.</p> <p><br />Over the years, several sectors have stepped into the limelight thanks to technological breakthroughs and market trends. The inaugural Tech Track 100, originally slated for 2000, was postponed for 12 months after the dotcom bubble burst, wiping out thousands of start-ups. But in the following year, dotcoms were eclipsed by telecoms companies, thanks to the effects of deregulation in the 1990s. Since then, the emergence of internet shopping, online gaming, price-comparison websites and, this year, cloud computing, have all been reflected in the rankings.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Many of these companies have become household names. Bet365, at No31 in the league table, is appearing for the fourth time, as is the DVD rental service Lovefilm (No51). Charity fundraising website Just Giving (No 82) is listed for the second year running, while the price comparison web- site Cheapflights Media (No100) is listed for a record seventh consecutive year.</p> <p><br />Many more on the tenth anniversary rankings are emerging brands that are transforming our everyday consumer experience. Shazam (No 36) allows people to identify tunes by using their mobile phone to capture the sound. The business is also driving traffic to online music stores, such as iTunes and Amazon, where it claims 8% of users go to download the song that has been identified.</p> <p><br />Meanwhile, (No 21), one of several price-comparison websites in this year&rsquo;s league table, is helping cost-conscious holidaymakers find flights, hotels and car hire. Opta Sports Data (No 85) collates and distributes results and other statistics from 30 sports in 70 countries for media outlets, including the BBC and News International, owner of The Sunday Times.</p> <p><br />Entrepreneurs at the helm of this year&rsquo;s Tech Track 100 companies are creating greater wealth and more jobs in the know- ledge economy than at almost any other time in the past decade. Their success is a testament, perhaps, to Britain&rsquo;s world leading technology and design skills. Together, the 100 companies have combined sales of &pound;2.8 billion, against &pound;429m in 2001, although the league table criteria have changed slightly. As many larger businesses continue to shed jobs, the 2010 league table firms have added 10,564 in the past three years &mdash; some the result of acquisitions &mdash; bringing their combined workforce to 17,265 staff, compared with 5,270 ten years ago.<br />Tech Track 100 firms are not required to be in profit as many are backed by venture capital and business angels, but a full four- fifths of this year&rsquo;s ventures have reported pre-tax profits in their latest accounts. Of the 10 most profitable firms, three are in the online gaming sector, including Bet 365,&nbsp;which&nbsp;recorded&nbsp;the&nbsp;largest&nbsp;profits, at &pound;101m. The healthcare software business Datix (No 86) had the biggest profit margins, at 54%.</p> <p><br />This year&rsquo;s&nbsp;No 1&nbsp;company,&nbsp;PKR,&nbsp;is another web-based betting business, reflecting consumers&rsquo; growing appetite for home entertainment. The company, which operates a 3D poker table allowing players to create their own avatars, was launched six years ago by Jez San, who also founded the games developer Argonaut at the age of 16. Some 100,000 people a month in Europe, Canada and Australia are said to be signing up to the site, powering sales growth of 356% a year from &pound;347,000 in 2006 to &pound;33m in 2009, with good profits.</p> <p><br />But perhaps the most notable trend to emerge this year is a sharp rise in the number of companies that provide out- sourced computer services, including cloud computing and managed hosting. Sixteen firms cite this as their main activity, with a further five offering it alongside their main products and services. After businesses slashed their IT budgets during the downturn, many are now opting to outsource server capacity and share IT infrastructure.

Microsoft&rsquo;s Scott Dodds assesses the rise of cloud computing on page 3. Internet and network service providers account for a further 15 firms.</p> <p><br />A broad category of digital media and entertainment companies &mdash; including online gaming firms &mdash; have also performed strongly this year, with 14 slots on the league table. For example, Monu- mental Games (No 6) develops games that can be played online by thousands of partic- ipants at the same time. BDO&rsquo;s Julian Frost looks at how technology is shaping con- sumer behaviour on page 6.<br />Venture-capital, business-angel or private-equity investors have backed 37 of this year&rsquo;s companies. Encouragingly, six firms raised funding in the 12 months to July, double the number that secured backing in last year&rsquo;s table. These include Cybit (No 94), a GPS tracking business that was taken private by the American private equity house Francisco Partners in January.

Wichtig ist in diesem Fall auch die Tatsache, dass ROC durch die Bereitstellung von unmittelbaren und hoch qualifizierten Ressourcen in diesen Bereichen eine strategische Erweiterung betreibt, die keinerlei Probleme in Bezug auf Kultur oder Entfernung zum Standort aufwirft, wie sie oft bei Entwicklungs- oder Betreuungst&auml;tigkeiten au&szlig;erhalb Europas zu sehen sind.</p> ROC Systems Consulting Limited erhält das ISO 9001 Qualitätszertifikat Fri, 10 Nov 2006 00:00:00 +0000 Olivia Farry <p>ROC Systems Consulting Ltd hat k&uuml;rzlich das ISO 9001:2000 Zertifikat f&uuml;r Qualit&auml;tssicherung erhalten. Dieses internationale Zertifikat zeigt ROC Kunden, dass das Unternehmen mit gro&szlig;em Engagement Dienstleistungen bereitstellt, die die Erwartungen des Kunden erf&uuml;llen und Managementstrukturen aufweist, die eine kontinuierlich hohe Qualit&auml;t der Dienstleistungen bewahrt. <br /><br />Die erfolgreiche Zertifizierung ist einerseits das Ergebnis eines externen Audits von ROCs Qualit&auml;tsmanagement-Systemen und andererseits die unmittelbare Implementierung dieser Ergebnisse. Die Bedeutung, die ROC der Auslieferung von Qualit&auml;tsdienstleistungen beimisst, wird durch die freiwillige Anmeldung zum &nbsp;ISO 9001:2000 Audit sehr deutlich gemacht. <br /><br />ROC ist nun berechtigt das ISO 9001:2000 Logo auf Firmenbriefpapier, Webseiten und allen Werbeartikeln zu verwenden. &nbsp;Das Logo beweist Kunden und potenziellen Kunden, dass sich ROC dazu verpflichtet hat, kontinuierlich seine Dienstleistungen zum Wohle der Kunden zu verbessern.<br /><br />Jedoch ist das ISO 9001:2000 Zertifikat mehr als eine einmalige Auszeichnung. Es besteht die Verpflichtung, dass ROCs Qualit&auml;tsmanagement-Systeme jedes Vierteljahr &uuml;berpr&uuml;ft werden und ein externes Audit alle 2 Jahre stattfindet. Der Pr&uuml;fungs- und Auditprozess ist ein grundlegendes Element der Zertifizierung, welches sicherstellt, dass ROC kontinuierlich bestrebt ist, seine Dienstleistungen weiter zu verbessern.<br /><br />Peter Appleton, Business Development Director der ISO Quality Services Ltd, das Unternehmen, das den Zertifizierungsprozess ausgef&uuml;hrt hat, sagt: &ldquo;Ich habe mich gefreut, w&auml;hrend der Implementierung der ISO 9001 Zertifizierung mit ROC Systems Consulting gearbeitet zu haben. Ich konnte dabei dem Unternehmen Ratschl&auml;ge geben, wie es am besten die Systeme strukturieren soll, um qualitativ hohe Dienstleistungen auszuliefern. Letztendlich profitieren davon sowohl die Kunden, als auch das Unternehmen selbst.&rdquo;<br /><br />Jerry Chilvers, Managing Director von ROC Systems Consulting Ltd sagt, &ldquo;Wir sind darauf ausgerichtet, von Anfang an eine qualitativ hohe Dienstleistung anzubieten und wir haben bereits Systeme eingerichtet, um einen hohen Standard f&uuml;r den Kundenservice zu pflegen. Das gesamte ROC Team hat wirklich sehr hart gearbeitet, um dieses Zertifikat zu erhalten und dies beweist auch, wie wichtig Qualit&auml;t f&uuml;r uns als Unternehmen ist.&rdquo;</p>
