South Africa’s Times 3 Technologies (T3T) has once more come up trumps at the annual Sage Partner Awards, taking home no fewer than four awards, including the prestigious Executive Vice President’s (EVP) award.
International business solutions provider Sage is the third-largest software company in the world, and each year presents the Partner Awards to recognise partner excellence in aligning strategies with the Sage vision to connect and improve companies through technology.
T3T holds Sage’s highest-ranking, ‘platinum’ status, and year after year is named among Sage’s best-performing partners in the Africa and Middle East region.
For more than 30 years, the team has implemented business solutions successfully across numerous industries and sectors throughout Africa and even further abroad.
T3T’s expertise in enterprise resource planning (ERP) and HR & Payroll solutions has made it the go-to service provider on the continent for helping organisations use technologies to meet the pressure of business and all its complexity, while ensuring that operations use IT to run more competitively today and tomorrow.
In 2021, T3T once again showed exactly why it is so highly regarded and valued by Sage.
By achieving the highest overall revenue for the medium businesses in the 2021 financial year, it was a shoe-in for the Highest Total Revenue to Sage award, while its unwavering commitment to implement Sage solutions with an extremely high level of customer satisfaction also made T3T the clear winner in the Implementation Partner of the Year category.
T3T also wholly embraced Sage’s transition to the Cloud which earned it the Cloud Partner of the Year award.
The company’s crowning glory is being named EVP Partner of the Year.
This exclusive accolade, awarded by Sage’s Executive Vice President for Africa and the Middle East, Pieter Bensch, recognises commitment to Sage’s strategy, ambition and values. It also honours partners who show innovation and drive market acceleration not only for their own business, but the Sage eco-system as a whole.
PJ Bishop, Sage’s Vice President for Services: Africa and Middle East, says the T3T team is an example to all in the Sage ecosystem.
“Congratulations on being awarded the EVP Business Partner of the Year and winning many of the categories. This shows your overall success as a Sage business partner. I would like to thank T3T for their dedication to Sage and ensuring customer success as industry experts across the ERP and Payroll segments.”
T3T directors Ashley Ellington and Stephen Howe could not be prouder of what their team has managed to achieve.
“Recognition by your suppliers is always amazing to receive. However, when you receive multiple awards recognising the business across all areas, including sales, support, implementation and overall strategy, it confirms the dedication and commitment of the entire team,” Ellington says.
“The cherry on the top is consistently winning these awards year in and year out as T3T has done,” Howe comments
While he acknowledges winning awards from the principal vendor does not directly impact current and future clients, it does instil confidence in businesses looking for a partner to guide them in their ERP, human resources and Payroll journey.
“Remember, choosing the right partner is the most important decision when deciding on the solution to implement in your business,” Howe says.
“What is important to T3T is the fact that we are consistently recognised by Sage for our excellence in delivering solutions and retaining and maintaining our clients. A sales award is great to receive, but being recognised as the best at customer satisfaction with delivering projects consistently is what we as a business are all about.
“Previously we have said that it is not about a product, but a solution. These awards attest to this fact. T3T is the top-performing Sage solution provider.”
