“Though our initial driver to investigate third-party Oracle support was a company-wide initiative to make sustainable savings, the incremental benefits we are receiving from Spinnaker Support are advantageous for our IT organization,” stated AlMutaz Mah’d, Head of ICT and SSC at Alamar Foods, a Saudi-Arabia based food services company. “The fast response time, support for customized code, and fact that the first person we speak to is an Oracle expert are all incredible advantages we have on the IT team now.”
“As a leading continuous availability solution provider, Stratus recognizes the importance of high quality service, value, and commitment,” stated Bobby Chung, Senior IT Manager, Stratus Technologies. “Choosing Spinnaker Support for our Oracle E-Business Suite products was a result of assessing our former support providers against these values. Savings we get from Spinnaker Support allow us to find and fund innovative ways to advance our own service and technology solutions.”
“Consistent delivery of high-value, best-in-industry Oracle and SAP support is job one,” said Bob Harland, SVP, Global Support Services at Spinnaker Support. “We will continue to invest a greater percentage of revenues to build a broader range of employee skillsets and to expand our service offerings and capabilities globally.
