U.K. County Council Renews Agreement With Rimini Street

Rimini Street, Inc., a global provider of enterprise software products and services, announced that U.K. local authority Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) has renewed its agreement with Rimini Street for support of its SAP ECC 6.0 and SAP Business Objects software.

Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, Rimini Street is a global provider of enterprise software support products and services. Rimini Street will support Nottinghamshire’s core business applications to ensure no disruption to critical services such as payroll for employees and protection services for young children.

NCC serves a population of approximately 828,000 with around 400 adult and child services. It also runs payroll for between 35,000-38,000 pensioners and pays its 7,000 staff, a complex task due to the different ways staff is paid. According to the company, Rimini Street’s tax, legal and regulatory support services help ensure on-time pay awards, tax table changes, and system updates are made with minimal disruption.

“Rimini Street has been an incredibly reliable and trusted partner and has given us the confidence that our core SAP applications are stable so we can now concentrate on supporting our frontline colleagues,” said Sarah Stevenson, Group Manager of the Business Services Center (BSC), NCC. “There is significant pressure to drive cost reductions in our budget but at the same time continue to maintain all our essential services and find ways to innovate. Rimini Street understands the importance of quality customer service, which not only delivers significant savings but gives us more time to plan for the future without the pressure of needing to follow a vendor-led upgrade path.”

“IRIS Elements was conceived as customers told us they needed to simply and instantly access the relevant business tools to transform their firms,” Dady said. “Senta joining the IRIS family allows us to revolutionize the cloud practice management market, delivering the functionality they require today regardless of location.”
