Seal of approval for maiCatch – innovative business card scanner passes SAP Cloud Platform Cloud Extension Application Certification

If something is awarded a certificate, this is a sign of quality and trust.

Just like our maiCatch app. maiCatch can now rightly bear the “SAP Certified – Built on SAP Cloud Platform” seal of approval.

Peter Öttl, maiCatch product owner, talks about the additional benefits of certification, what it took to achieve this and what developments customers can expect in future.

What does this award mean in terms of the high quality of our products?


Peter Öttl: That our solution is based on integration technologies that are recognised by SAP. meaning that maiCatch can be seamlessly integrated into SAP C4/HANA. This creates trust and a sense of security.

What criteria are decisive for the award?


Peter Öttl: SAP has strict set of expectations for product extensions in the cloud platform. These include security guidelines, quality, operating and support processes as well as a guarantee that the extension will still be compatible with future versions of the SAP Sales Cloud. These specifications are being constantly updated so that the certification has to be repeated every year. If you develop your product according to these and other quality criteria from the very beginning, there is a good chance that it will be certified. Furthermore, we were also able to benefit from our past experiences and numerous other product certifications.

What else can customers expect from maiCatch in the future? What further developments are in the pipeline?


Peter Öttl: At the moment we are concentrating on adding more languages to maiCatch so that we will also be able to offer Asian languages in future. In addition, customers will very soon be able to integrate maiCatch into the SAP Marketing Cloud too. What’s more, we are working on further “Catches” to trigger other processes, such as Opportunities from maiCatch.

Benefits of certification at a glance:


  • Confirmation of the integration capability: Customers benefit from seamless integration into SAP solutions
  • Easy to find: Customers can easily find the solution in the SAP Certified Solutions Directory
  • Simple implementation: Lower integration and overall operating costs because its ability to be integrated in SAP software has already been tested
