Rimini Street Support Improves Workflow and Operational Efficiencies
A subsidiary of GTM Holdings S.A. Advent International (GTM), quantiQ is a distributor that develops, tests, stores and handles chemical products. GTM operates in Latin America with more than 1,000 employees across 11 offices, with new offices in the United States and China on the horizon. When GTM acquired quantiQ in 2017, there were already demands for efficiency and plans to restructure quantiQ’s business processes. A part of that process was deploying SAP S/4HANA.
In early 2020, quantiQ’s strategy was to create a new hybrid technology platform. Due to the disruption caused by the pandemic, it needed to accelerate this strategy and quickly implement digital initiatives. In addition, quantiQ wanted to increase its operational efficiency and get the most out of its ERP investment. quantiQ chose Rimini Street Support for SAP S/4HANA because of the Company’s expertise in helping clients both maximize the value derived from their ERP systems and strategically plan and execute a business-driven IT roadmap. By switching to Rimini Street Support, quantiQ was able to save significant costs related to its vendor support enabling it to invest in critical digital projects. They also now receive a higher quality of support, including support for all of their customizations and help with their integration requirements.
“We want to establish ourselves as a digital transformation leader in the chemical product distribution industry,” stated Jessé Gusmão, chief information officer, quantiQ. “Our partnership with Rimini Street will leverage our capacity to be more strategic and oriented to our business and also to invest in new initiatives so that we can improve the value and quality of services provided and ensure that customers see our business as reliable and innovative.”

The Company’s expert engineers also provide guidance and advisory services to quantiQ’s internal teams around strategic application roadmap planning and specialized interoperability solutions.
