ROFF


ROFF is born in 1996, out of the strong will to combine the experience of the best SAP consultants with an innovative perspective of customer relationship.The partnership with SAP in 1999 (Sales and Service Partner) and the integration into the Tecnidata Group in 2000 consolidated ROFF's positioning, which naturally evolved into the adoption of new business activities, assuring a gradual and sustained growth of the income volume up to 19,6 million Euros in 2008. This growth was a result of the strength of the initial idea, and the achieved success came as a result of a work performed with excellence. In 2003 ROFF was nominated Channel Partner by SAP, which was a decisive contribution for SAP's success in their approach to the SME market. In 2004, through the strengthening of the partnership with SAP, by achieving the Service Partner status, ROFF became the first SAP partner to operate in Portugal simultaneously in the SME market, as well as with major national and multinational companies. Today we rely on the commitment of our 250 employees and one of our main aims is to become the company of reference in SAP consultancy in Portugal. In 2006 ROFF extended its business abroad, opening offices in Paris and Luanda, in order to face the growing demand and recognition of its quality service in Europe and Africa.Partner integration, customer loyalty, employee motivation and management and sales force qualification are determining factors for a company's competitiveness, regardless of its size. Aware of this reality, we prepared the necessary abilities to be the right partner in the implementation of B2B, CRM, B2C, B2E, decision support systems and m-business solutions. In this scope, we present the expressive advantage of housing a team with a deep knowledge of the touch point between all these technologies, the Enterprise Resource Planning.
