Olas is Europe's largest specialist SAP Training company. We've a track record with the largest Irish SAP implementations (e.g. Kerry Group, ESBi) and global organisations (e.g. Firmenich, International Criminal Courts) and have a major footprint across Europe and North America.
In order to ensure successful SAP go-lives for our clients we have developed our own SAP Training Project Methodology, only use the best SAP trainers (typically SAP Certified, 10+years SAP Training exp.) and we use the most appropriate training tools & technologies to develop training content and deliver training (incl. Self-paced and virtual learning).
The training services we provide to our clients can range from a short training course delivered onsite by one of our specialist trainers to performing all training activities on large global roll-out’s of SAP.
OlasIT have worked on a large number of SAP Training Projects. Our client projects have included SAP implementations, upgrades, refresh/advanced training courses, Rapid eLearning courses and other consulting and training management services.
Olas were engaged by AIB to develop training materials and deliver training for their SAP FICO and PS upgrade project. Our trainers were also engaged to develop materials and deliver training for the HR module and we also developed a 2 hour SAP HR Overview course using our Rapid e-Learning approach which is now a fundamental part of all new recruits' induction training.
In partnership with SAP UK, Olas developed training materials and delivered end-user training on the SAP FICO, MM and EBP modules for the implementation of SAP into Bank of Ireland. On this project we used the Resite training tool to develop training materials
Olas developed four Rapid eLearning SAP end-user training courses covering the BW and FICO modules. This removes the need for a training room, SAP system and SAP trainer and also provides a standardised SAP training message for new recruits and refresh training for current employees.
Olas were appointed by Firmench as the preferred training partner to develop all the core SAP training materials using a ‘Train the Trainer’ approach for their large Global SAP implementation.
Olas developed, translated and delivered a 7-day SAP Customer Service training course to Allergan Customer Service staff in five European languages
