and industry leadership with its 10
Stevie® Award win this year

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#independentsupportRimini
Street, Inc.
, a global provider of enterprise software services, and
the leading independent support provider for Oracle® and SAP® products,
today announced that it won a prestigious Stevie Award in the Innovation
in Customer Service Management, Planning & Practice category from the
2017 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards. This honour marks the Company’s 10th
Stevie Award win this year. Rimini Street recently earned Stevie Awards
in several categories, including Most
Innovative Tech Company of the Year
from the 2017 American Business
AwardsSM and Customer
Service Department of the Year
from the 2017 Stevie Awards for Sales
& Customer Service.

Global-Scale Customer Service Excellence Honored Once Again

The Stevie Award recognized the achievements of Rimini Street’s Global
Support Department in customer service excellence and innovation for
delivering its premium-level independent support model to clients
running Oracle and SAP enterprise software. The Company’s model
incorporates more comprehensive support services not offered through
standard vendor maintenance, including support for customizations,
interoperability and performance tuning, as well as access to a named,
dedicated Primary Support Engineer (PSE) with an average of 15 years’
experience, and 15-minute guaranteed response times for critical cases
(P1) – all delivered at half the original vendor’s annual maintenance

Rimini Street Client Also Wins Award After Switching to Independent

Organizations who have made the switch to independent support and are
benefitting from the greater operational efficiencies and flexibility
afforded by the ultra-responsive support model are able to reinvest
these significant savings back into their business to drive more
strategic initiatives that help lead to growth and competitive
advantage. One such example of an organization that leveraged the
savings from its switch to Rimini Street is Kumagai Gumi in Japan.

One of the largest, most reputable contractors in Japan, Kumagai Gumi
switched to Rimini Street and immediately reduced the IT costs
associated with an upgrade of its ERP software by 100 million yen. The
company was also able to lower its operations and maintenance expense by
40 million yen annually, while at the same time experiencing more
responsive support. This enabled the company to reallocate savings into
new projects, including the installation of 800 iPads to improve
operational efficiencies across the organization. As a result, Kumagai
Gumi earned the IT Special Award
earlier this year given by the
Japan Institute of Information Technology.

“We are honoured to be a recipient of the prominent Asia-Pacific Stevie
Awards,” said Rimini Street, Asia Pacific, managing director, Andrew
. “This recognition further cements Rimini Street’s leadership
position in customer service and our ability to help enable innovation
in the organizations we support. For Rimini Street, it’s not just about
the cost savings we can enable for our clients, but the value we can
bring clients with exceptional support of their systems and what each
client can do with the reinvestment of saved funds – specifically to
drive growth.”

The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards were open to organisations in the 22
nations of the Asia-Pacific region and focused on recognizing innovation
in business. The judging panel consisted of more than 50 executives
around the world acting as judges for more than 700 nominations
submitted by organizations across the region.
