Read how our consultancy expertise supported a global software solutions company with hiring a French-speaking SAP Technical Integration Manager. We ensured that the company's many projects and integrations could operate unhindered and be steered toward success.

The Brief: Niche yet Imperative for Global Relationships

Our client is a USA-based global software solutions company who provide enterprise performance management solutions for industries using big data analytics, application development, and cloud services. They dedicate themselves to bringing insights and innovation to their clients so that they can utilise value-added end-to-end software and digital transformation services. They needed to source an experienced French-speaking SAP Technical Integration Manager who could lead their projects and future integration.

The Challenge: Timescales and Expertise Levels

Our client sought Ntrinsic’s help due to the strength of our SAP offering and exceptional network of talent. Given the importance of this niche role, we needed to find someone quickly who fulfilled the client's exact criteria. There would not be an abundance of candidates in the market, but we were confident that our talent pool would contain suitable options. 

As the client required an SAP Technical Integration Manager to conduct projects at their end-user client in France Schneider Electric, we knew there would be strict criteria to fill. The candidate would have to demonstrate a strong knowledge of logistics processes and the technical integration of systems. They had to be proficient in French to be able to interact effectively with and nurture relationships with different business units in France. Only a very senior profile would work due to the nature of the business and the fact that our client had several projects and integrations that needed to be managed and delivered. Our client trusted us to find and place the correct individual.

Our Approach: Understanding and Attention

At Ntrinsic, we make a point of understanding every facet of information and the needs our client presents. We familiarised ourselves with the criteria mentioned above and made sure to utilise our previous experience in this area and our connections. We have already assisted the same client with an SAP Cutover Manager and SAP Supply Chain, so with these successful placements already established, we were able to dive deeper into the job spec and leverage our understanding of the requirement to identify the right SAP Integration specialist. From there, it was all about tapping into our talent pool and networks.

The Solution

Our extensive network, paired with our keen belief in relationship building, allowed us to contact a candidate we previously worked with, which many other IT consultants would not be in a position to do. Our call was well-received, and they were highly interested in the role. 

The Result

The new SAP Technical Integration Manager has settled into their role, and they are acknowledged as an important and appreciated asset to the client. We proved to our client that they were not chasing the impossible and that their strict criteria were deliverable. Our client is very satisfied with their new hire’s approach and, by proxy, are impressed with Ntrinsic and our approach. As a result, we have not only further developed our team’s expertise, we have built a strong relationship with our client after three successful hires.

We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
