Sage, GT Tech to host roadshow in Riyadh

Keith Fenner+sageSage joins hands with Saudi based GT Tech to host a one-day roadshow in Riyadh  to further raise awareness about the partnership’s ICT solutions for the kingdom’s enterprise sector. The roadshow will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on 19 January 2015.

The roadshow will commence under the patronage of HRH Prince Khaled bin Al Waleed Bin Talal Al Saud, Chairman of GT Tech, and is expected to be attended by ICT executives, entrepreneurs and end-users across the oil-rich kingdom.

Commenting on the event, Keith Fenner, Senior Vice President Sales – Sage ERP Africa and Head of Sage Middle East, said: “Saudi Arabia is a very promising market for Sage Group. It has a thriving ICT sector, with spending expected to reach USD36.95 billion by 2015, growing by 4.6% year on year, as per IDC’s latest forecast.”

Sage believes that the company is well-placed to respond to the demand of Saudi companies – both small and large – for enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions that ensure seamless operations and improved productivity.

Mohammed Al Mutabagani, CEO of GT Tech, said “ERP solutions, such as the Sage ERP X3, have become increasingly user centric, agile and collaborative in their design. Today, ERP is all about the customer experience and businesses want mobility, big data analytics and reporting. The shift to the cloud and connected services is very much a reality amongst enterprises of all sizes.”

Deon Oelofse, Sales Director KSA at Sage Middle East, said “The roadshow will highlight Sage’s world-class ERP and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions such as Sage ERP X3, Sage 300 and Sage CRM and how they can help take an organisation to its next growth level.

“On the face of it, most ERP solutions deliver similar features and functionality, but what lies underneath can differ vastly from vendor to vendor. Technology, architecture and roadmaps are of critical importance when evaluating an ERP for your business, which is why we’re holding this event as a platform where organisations can make informed decisions for their business,” concluded Oelofse.
