Etisalat’s E-Commerce Unit Begins Regional Expansion
Emirates Telecommunication’s e-commerce division, Comtrust, plans to extend its services to some other regional markets, a senior official was quoted as saying by the Gulf News.
"Talks are on with authorities to broaden our sphere of operations. However, we cannot name the countries involved at this stage," marketing manager, Farooq Hasan said.
"We are deploying our services through pilot projects with non-UAE customers. In fact, there is one right now in Amman.”
“Simultaneously, we are enhancing our payment and security services and bringing in applications which can kick off larger transactions such as electronic bill processing and payments."
Comtrust was set up in January 2000 to offer e-commerce infrastructure and applications services, said the paper.
Meanwhile, Comtrust has completed a project for the Riyadh-based Al Zuhair Group to host the latter's enterprise resource planning (ERP) requirements on the Internet.
The move coincides with the Saudi company's expansion into the UAE, the paper added – Albawaba.com
