SAP-qualified partner-packaged solutions is a powerful way that can help partners grow their business.


By leveraging this packaging, partners can expand their reach, enhance their offerings, and better serve their customers.

Built, sold, and supported by SAP partners, these integrated solutions combine SAP software with industry or line-of-business expertise, services, customizations, or applications – so customers can run at their best, regardless of their company size.

  • Rapid implementation based on a proven methodology and a predefined scope



  • Clear and predictable implementation without the risk



  • Fast time to value by packaging software and services together


There are more than 1,000 qualified solutions created by more than 500 partners to choose from.
