Agreement will create the first UAE & GCC Cloud offering for Small and Medium Enterprises exclusively
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirate : Injazat Data Systems, the UAE’s premier IT Managed Services and Solutions Provider and Maestrano EMEA, a cloud based platform provider of best of breed applications at an affordable price for small and medium businesses, have entered into a strategic partnership to provide cloud business solutions and applications to Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the GCC.
The agreement between Injazat and Maestrano will build an integrated cloud platform, hosted locally in Injazat’s Tier IV Data Center in Abu Dhabi, providing SMEs with access to over 60 third-party business applications.
The integrated cloud platform will also feature a unique automated reporting dashboard that presents the end-user with a visual snapshot of their business, through simple desktop widgets, aggregating data automatically from the cloud applications, putting full control and accessibility in the hands of the SME client.
Due to Maestrano’s globally patented technology Connec!™, leading business application systems such as QuickBooks, Xero, Sage One, Microsoft Office 365, Word Press, and Sugar CRM will become available to organizations in the GCC. The Connec!™ technology, seamlessly connects the end-user to the platform without any setup or configuration required and also automatically updates applications that have been downloaded by the customer.
Ibrahim Mohamed Lari, CEO, Injazat Data Systems, said: “SMEs have become an integral backbone to the UAE’s economy. As part of our evolving cloud strategy, Injazat will be able to provide SMEs across the UAE with access to scale and growth via the platform. Injazat’s business strategy is to expand its premier position in the IT Managed Services market to deliver highly available, highly secure Managed Private, Hybrid and Public Cloud services to a wide spectrum of businesses in the GCC. Injazat is confident that the partnership with Maestrano will provide cloud-based business solutions at the right price point for SMEs in the region to run their businesses more effectively.”
Stephane Ibos, CEO, Maestrano, said: “We want to work with companies who have a proven track record of high standards and who have an appetite for innovation; both characteristics that we found in Injazat. With our regional HQ in the UAE, we see a great strategic alignment with Injazat and I personally look forward to seeing the partnership grow and mature in the months ahead.”
Philippe Fanjere, VP Europe, Middle East and Africa, Maestrano, said: “This is a fantastic offering for the SMEs in the UAE and the GCC region. For the very first time, they will benefit from a platform specifically designed to address their needs, rather than be presented with a subset of services designed for large corporations. We are very excited to partner with Injazat to offer the type of functionality and solutions to those that, until now, were reserved exclusively for large corporations that could afford them.”
The agreement between Injazat and Maestrano will offer a white-labelled platform to large enterprise companies addressing the SME market or looking to consolidate their engagement with the SME market.
