Siemens appoints Girish Parmar to head up new R/3 LIVE Express consultancy practice

Siemens Business Services has appointed Girish Parmar as head of its new R/3
LIVE Express consultancy practice, formed to provide the UK SME sector with
a fixed-cost, fast-track SAP R/3 implementation service. Girish Parmar will
be responsible for developing R/3 LIVE Express as a parallel business to
Siemens Business Services existing successful R/3 LIVE implementation
practice, and positioning Siemens as the leading SAP R/3 implementation
partner for the UK SME sector.

Commenting on his appointment, Girish Parmar said: "More and more UK
companies are keen to benefit from successful ERP implementations, but until
now SAP R/3 has mainly been seen as a solution for larger organisations.
We've set up R/3 LIVE Express to make R/3 accessible to the SME sector, and
with issues such as the Year 2000 and the euro looming large, we believe our
fast-track implementation service will be extremely attractive to the UK SME
community."

Girish Parmar brings considerable R/3, applications, change management and
business process re-engineering experience to the new Siemens R/3 LIVE
Express business. He was previously a Senior Project Manager for the
company's R/3 LIVE consultancy practice, where he was responsible for a
20-strong team which completed the successful implementation of a major 500
user, multi-site, multi-national SAP R/3 implementation for Rothmans. He
joined Siemens two years ago after five years with Ernst & Young, and two
years as a consultant on a major IMF-sponsored World Bank project for the
Ukraine Ministry of Finance.

At Ernst & Young, Girish Parmar worked on major systems and consultancy
projects. Earlier in his career he worked for Morgan Grampian and Dun and
Bradstreet, and qualified as a Chartered Institute of Management Accountants
(CIMA) accountant in 1984.

The new Siemens Business Services R/3 LIVE Express business builds on the
success of the company's existing R/3 LIVE Division, which has grown
significantly over the last five years to become one of the UK's leading SAP
R/3 implementation partners. This has included major projects for
international organisations such as Rothmans and Cadbury Schweppes, and
currently includes projects in the retail, financial services, manufacturing
and service industries. The R/3 LIVE approach enables UK organisations to
source all their core business systems and services requirements through a
single supplier.

R/3 LIVE Express is part of Siemens Business Services, one of the UK's
fastest-growing information technology services and outsourcing companies.
It combines business process and project management strengths with the
technology and financial strengths of the Siemens Group to provide a
powerful range of IT, workflow and outsourcing services to the public
sector, financial institutions and commercial organisations. 
UK customers include the Home Office's Immigration and Nationality
Directorate (IND), 
the Welsh Office, the UK Passport Agency and Coventry City Council.
