International Track 200

London-based Sapphire Systems implements and supports business systems software. Managing director Ian Caswell claims that the company has become a top reseller for Sun Systems’ financial-accounting software, and a leader in Europe for SAP Business One enterprise resource-planning software. With offices in New York, Los Angeles and Mumbai, the firm can provide global telephone support round the clock. Customers include companies in the oil-and- gas, travel and media sectors. Contracts with foreign-owned financial-services companies in Britain gave the business the expertise in worldwide accounting requirements to expand abroad. Sapphire Systems’ international sales have risen 52% a year, from £568,000 in 2007 to £1.3m in 2009.
