Saudi companies seize software upgrade opportunity in Ramadan
ACCPAC and its partners in Saudi Arabia recently announced that several Saudi-based businesses have decided to upgrade their software platform in response to Ramadan upgrade incentives.
During Ramadan ACCPAC offered its customers in Saudi Arabia financial incentives to upgrade to the latest Advantage Series 5.0. “The DOS version of ACCPAC has been around for more than ten years now, and there obviously are limits to what you can do in a DOS environment. Current users are missing out on the power of Windows, e-business and full cross-application integration functions and flexibility that newer versions present to their businesses,” commented Marc Van Der Ven, regional manager of ACCPAC.
Ahmad Balamesh, of Al Ebdaa Establishment a Jeddah-based ACCPAC partner said that the Saudi Company of Chemical Trading Ltd, the largest chemicals trader in Saudi Arabia, is one of the first companies who responded to the offer. Users of ACCPAC Plus, the DOS-based accounting system, benefit from a seamless upgrade path which carries all vital accounting data to the new browser-based ACCPAC Advantage Series 5.0.
ACCPAC’s latest release 5.0 operates on the most widely used operating systems and databases, can integrate with other applications and can be customized to address the specific needs of businesses. ACCPAC also addresses the linguistic needs of companies in the region by offering them an Arabized versions of its applications.
“Our investments in Saudi Arabia are paying off tremendously,” commented Van Der Ven. “With expenditure on software in the Kingdom expected to rise to more than $5 billion by the year 2005, we are providing enough incentives to Saudi organizations to modernize their systems and support their need for powerful solutions.” — (menareport.com)
