BERLIN, Germany, November 12, 2019 — Scantrust SA team members met with SAP stakeholders, mentors, potential clients, and investors over several months during the summer of 2019 SAP.iO program. While participating in SAP.iO, the three Scantrust solution categories were presented to SAP clients including patented authentication, supply chain intelligence, and consumer engagement. A significant share of the program was dedicated to technical integrations which included putting Scantrust technology together with S/4 Hana, the SAP ERP solution for large enterprises, and SAP Marketing Cloud, a contextual, real-time marketing suite. With the SAP.iO program complete, Scantrust most recently joined the PartnerEdge Build Program, further demonstrating a commitment to collaborate and innovate with SAP and to better serve Scantrust and SAP clients. This step will help Scantrust continue to build traction within SAP and drive projects together with SAP and serves as a great example, of how SAP.iO supports start-ups within the SAP ecosystem.
“Integrating with SAP is an opportunity to scale our business by tapping into the SAP client base. At the same time, we’re providing new services to Scantrust clients and that adds to what sets Scantrust apart from our competitors. Participating in SAP.iO gave us momentum which culminated with the SAP integrations that we have now.” – Nathan Anderson, Scantrust CEO
