Mr. Turner’s visit came after Microsoft had selected Nuqul Group, one of the region’s leading industrial conglomerate as one of the early adopters of Office 2010, under the Rapid Deployment Program (RDP), which aims at giving important customers the opportunity to provide their input and feedback on new products within their areas of interest which have not yet been released to the market.

Mr. Turner commended Nuqul Group’s strategic role and valuable efforts in promoting the effective deployment of Microsoft solutions. He stated, “Nuqul Group is a truly worldwide corporation with a global presence, so it made sense that such a reputable company was selected as one of our early adopters of Microsoft Office 2010. As part of our Rapid Deployment Program, Nuqul Group is one of a select number of companies around the world that we have entrusted to provide us with important feedback on product features, interfaces, APIs and other elements that are important to their business. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Nuqul Group and hope they continue to align themselves with leading-edge technologies from Microsoft.”

The meeting between Mr. Turner and Nuqul Group’s CEOs took place at the Nuqul Group’s head office in Abdoun, and was attended by Mr. Ali Faramawy, Microsoft Vice President for the Middle East and Africa, Mr. Sherif Seddik, Microsoft’ Regional Director for North Africa, Mediterranean and Pakistan and Mr. Zeid Shubeilat, Microsoft Jordan Country Manager, in addition to Nuqul Group managers and representatives from their IT department.

Mr. Nidal Eses, Nuqul Group CEO said, “Nuqul Group is honored to have hosted Mr. Turner. It is indeed a unique opportunity to collaborate so closely with Microsoft and interact with their team.”

Mr. Eses added, “We believe that in order to grow and meet our market needs, Nuqul Group must continuously aim to raise our standards and capabilities, which we aim to accomplish through valuable partnerships such as the one we have established with Microsoft. Being selected as an early deployer of Microsoft Office 2010 is testimony to the efforts we are putting forth to invest in the latest technology and ultimately provide our stakeholders with the highest level of performance that they have come to expect from us.”

Nuqul Group was among 30 companies from around the globe that were selected as early adopters. The selection is based on the level of commitment to testing and feedback of Microsoft products, and Nuqul Group’s prior deployment of SharePoint Server was highly regarded according to Microsoft reports. 
Established in 1952, Nuqul Group brings together 31 regional and global companies, more than 5500 employees and exports its products to over 45 exports markets worldwide.
