Eastern Networks to use ACCPAC hosted IT solutions
Eastern Networks, a regional Information Technology (IT) propriety solution developer and integrator, signed a hosting agreement with ACCPAC, an international vendor of end-to-end e-business solutions, that allows Eastern Networks to use ACCPAC’s hosted applications, a software deployment model commonly referred to as Application Service Provision (ASP).
”Using hosted applications helps us concentrate on our deliverables and avoid unnecessary investment in extra hardware, software, security, networking and integration with our back office, not to mention the personnel administration which would be needed for such a project if implemented at our facilities,” says Hazem Mulhim, Group managing director of Eastern Networks.
Along with ACCPAC’s Advantage Series—a software that handles accounting and operations needs—Eastern Networks will be the first company in the Middle East to use a hosted eCRM solution. ACCPAC has assigned Raqmiyat, its Emirates-based partner, to handle the project.
”With 14 branches in the Middle East serving the financial sector, our mobile support engineers need to have access at anytime from anywhere to customer files for better decisions so as to optimize their time and effort,” said Mulhim.
Eastern Networks (EN) has been introducing computing and communication technologies throughout the Middle East since 1984, from PC to WAP-based solutions. In addition to being banking application developers and a SWIFT business partner, Eastern Networks is also a bolero.net regional agent and a Microsoft certified partner. EN’s regional operations are managed through offices in Amman, Jordan and the Dubai Internet City.
ACCPAC International, a subsidiary of Computer Associates, empowers medium-sized enterprises through a range of end-to-end e-business solutions. Based in Pleasanton, California, USA, with offices in Asia, Australia, Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, South Africa, and the United Kingdom, ACCPAC has more than 500,000 registered clients and 5,000 business partners in more than 100 countries worldwide. — (menareport.com)
