About us

SAPPHIR IT & Management Training GmbH is an international service company based in Austria with the business areas SAP consulting, SAP training and usability testing.

In 2005 SAPPHIR IT & Management Training GmbH was founded by Gerhard Jurasek and SAPPHIR IT & Management Consulting GmbH with focus on SAP training and seminars for personal competence in Graz.

The beginning was the business area SAP training. Our consultants and trainees work for the subsidiaries of the German software giant SAP in Germany, Switzerland and Netherlands since the first days.
The business area “seminars for personal competence” was launched one year later and offers seminars for memory training, speed reading, voice training and stress management.

The business area SAP training is very international and was expanded over the years to other countries like Belgium, UK, Austria, Sweden, France, Finland and Turkey. The export ratio of our service is around 90 percent.

Since 2012 we offer again  SAP consulting. This field was covered before exclusively by SAPPHIR IT & Management Consulting GmbH in Vienna.

In 2013 SAPPHIR became a member of „Leitbetriebe Österreich“, an organization of leading Austrian companies. This requires a certification prooving the fulfillment of various criteria related to company development, sustainability and success.

Our youngest child is the new business area Usability started in 2014.

In 2015 we expanded our SAP business to Malaysia, Portugal and south Africa and in 2016 to India. Meanwhile SAPPHIR is active in 15 countries.
