Increasingly more enterprises choosing Spinnaker Support to deliver third-party support, managed services, and consulting

DENVER, Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Spinnaker Support, the leading global provider of third-party support and managed services for Oracle and SAP enterprise software applications, today announced 57.4% net new sales growth for the nine month period ending September 30, 2016. Record growth was spearheaded by unprecedented increases in SAP [http://www.spinnakersupport.com/sap-support-services/], Oracle E-Business Suite [http://www.spinnakersupport.com/oracle-support-services/ebs-support/], and Oracle Technology (database and middleware) support and managed services. Spinnaker Support reported significant year-over-year growth in the Americas (39.4%) and in EMEA/APAC (97.5%). The company has now signed with more than 800 customers in 93 countries.

Fastest Growing Provider in an Emerging Market

Spinnaker Support has just been recognized in a recent Gartner research note as one of only two vendors whose primary or exclusive offerings are ERP support services for Oracle and SAP products. Industry analysts project that the third-party maintenance and support market will grow 7-10x by 2020, as enterprises look for lower cost, better service level alternatives.

"We again retained the position as the fastest growing vendor in our space," said Matt Stava, CEO at Spinnaker Support. "Our focus is not diverted by litigation or external financial pressures. Spinnaker Support stands out with a broader set of services, built-to-last financial profile, a sterling reputation for respecting and complying with the intellectual property rights of others, and an enduring commitment to customer satisfaction."

Wins Coming from Many Places

"We are winning highly competitive deals around the world, including emerging markets Korea, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Africa," continued Mr. Stava. "Our average deal size has jumped by more than 60% this year, largely due to our growing success signing Fortune 1,000 companies and the broader application footprints they bring."

"With Spinnaker Support, we are getting more comprehensive support, including tax and regulatory updates, at substantial cost savings," said Bodil Forss, Chief Information Officer for Vaisala.
