Vaisala Corporation, headquartered in Finland, is a global leader in environmental and industrial measurement. After a thorough evaluation, Vaisala made the switch from Oracle to Spinnaker Support for E-Business Suite (EBS) support. "With Spinnaker Support, we are getting more comprehensive support, including tax and regulatory updates, at substantial cost savings," said Bodil Forss, Chief Information Officer for Vaisala. "From the start of the support agreement in June 2016 to date, Spinnaker Support engineers have resolved our issues in a satisfactory way. We are happy with Spinnaker Support's level of responsiveness and quality of support."
"We switched to a third-party support model for our SAP system because we are stable and because we wanted to redirect savings to more strategic programs," said Peter Girgis, Vice President and CIO of Dunn-Edwards Corporation. "After narrowing our search to the two top players in the space, we ultimately chose Spinnaker Support because of their culture, people, and proven delivery model. Spinnaker Support was just a better overall fit for Dunn-Edwards."

"New customer wins continue to come from all over the world," continued Mr. Stava.
