ARINSO International, a leading provider of HR solutions, announced it has been selected to join the “BPO Services Powered by SAP” program. This move further strengthens ARINSO’s position in the growing HR BPO and Payroll Outsourcing market.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 17, 2005 -- ARINSO International (Euronext Brussels: ARIN), a leading provider of HR solutions, today announced it has been selected to join the “BPO Services Powered by SAP” program. This move further strengthens ARINSO's position in the growing HR BPO and Payroll Outsourcing market. ARINSO's “euHReka” offering based on mySAP Human Capital Management, which includes a multi-country, multi-industry HR and Payroll solution with advanced self service capabilities, offers a platform for global payroll and human resources BPO services to both national and multi-national enterprises. EuHReka will be delivered under the rules of the “BPO Services Powered by SAP” program. ARINSO's euHReka offering has proved particularly compelling for companies requiring an HR solutions partner with proven expertise across the global landscape. Its suitability for pan-European HR and Payroll outsourcing is also unique. This new partnership enables ARINSO to offer its world-class HR solutions in a cost-effective pricing structure with no upfront investment.

SAP, a leader in business software solutions, has created a strong value proposition in offering BPO-ready solutions and services to key outsourcing providers serving this dynamic market. Under the “BPO Services Powered by SAP” program, SAP endorses and actively supports the set up and ongoing operation of BPO delivery platforms in close collaboration with leading BPO providers. The delivery platforms are based upon the latest versions of SAP's best-in-class mySAP HCM solutions and are deployed in a standardized way by the BPO provider to deliver a comprehensive, yet cost-effective offering.

ARINSO's global capabilities in HR operations and their ”euHReka” platform Powered by SAP provide clients with a seamless, scaleable HR solution. ARINSO's HR Business Consulting teams are recognized for their expertise in HR service delivery transformation. This track record of speed and success in transition ensures access to the benefits of process automation and innovation when outsourcing administrative human resources activities. ARINSO offers flexible pre-financing options for the transition and service transformation resulting in improved ROI. The close collaboration with SAP will make the powerful mySAP HCM solution accessible and deployable to a broader range of employers.

ARINSO has been selected by SAP for its business process expertise, SAP solution experience and quality performance on HR projects. With one of the largest SAP HR and Payroll implementation practices across the globe, ARINSO has delivered projects to over 500 clients, implementing solutions serving over 5 million employees. This unequalled expertise is leveraged into ARINSO's HR BPO Operations (ARINSO People Services), which provides best in class HR and Payroll Outsourcing services for clients in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific. ARINSO now services some of the first truly global HRO contracts from its standardized service center locations.

With this strategic collaboration, SAP and ARINSO will be able to leverage each other's extensive business experience and market insight to offer the most advanced solutions. The value of the euHReka platform is now enhanced by the unique “BPO Powered by SAP” program advantages, enabling employers to reduce administrative costs, deliver strategic business advantage and streamline HR processes.

Jos Sluys, CEO of ARINSO International, comments: “HR BPO is a fast growing sector of the flourishing outsourcing market. Within HR in particular, companies now recognize the value of outsourcing non-core and transactional processes, enabling them to concentrate on their core business activities. I am convinced that with this new partnership our customers will benefit from higher quality of service, lower cost and reduced risk related to BPO deployment, transition and operation. This partnership also makes ARINSO a focused challenger in the HR marketplace and strengthens our position as a leading global provider of business process outsourcing services.”

SAP recognizes that companies want to leverage the full scope of service centralization and outsourcing options and is committed to supporting companies and providers to leverage SAP solutions in an outsourced BPO environment. BPO Services Powered by SAP include a unique combination of SAP's long-term viability as a partner and experience in providing innovative business solutions with complementary services from leading BPO providers such as ARINSO.
