The company also plans to promote its customized enterprise solutions for verticals and offer clients a preview of the beta version of Focus 8 as well as meet existing and potential customers from across the region at the region’s leading technology event.
“GITEX is one of the largest ICT exhibitions in the Middle East and a very important event for us. Over the last decade, GITEX propelled us to a different level in our corporate standing in the Middle East and our customer base increased exponentially. This year, we plan to use GITEX as a platform to promote our best-in-class products such as Focus i and Focus ARMS to a much wider audience and further our growth prospects and expand our reach across the Middle East and North Africa region. GITEX is also an ideal forum for us to meet visitors and exhibitors from various countries at a single place,” says Ali Hyder, CEO of Focus Softnet.
Focus i, the company’s flagship product, is the first ever mid-tier Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution to feature a Business Intelligence (BI) module. It provides real-time, multi-dimensional posting of transactions, resulting in real-time reports. Focus i also features incredible applications such as an enterprise dashboard, where customers can get information about their business at a glance, and a comprehensive Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) module, which provides full support for multi-process production for stocking, order-based, assemble-to-order environments. Technology experts from Focus Softnet will be available at the exhibition to explain the features and benefits of Focus i to customers.
“Focus i has been well accepted in the market since its launch last GITEX. Focus i offers business decision-makers the option to access their ERP from anywhere and at anytime using their mobile devices.
Many of our existing ERP customers have been upgrading their systems from Focus RT to Focus i. GITEX is an ideal stage for us to demonstrate its unique features to customers visiting from across the region and show them the benefits and cost savings of implementing this solution,” Mr. Hyder added.
The company will also be promoting its Academic Records Management solutions - Focus ARMS, which is a solution pioneered to attain world class standards in educational institution management. Focus - ARMS is designed to manage virtually every aspect of a University / Institutional requirements and also provides a medium for efficient material and equipment inventory control.
“The education sector in the Middle East has been growing with countries such as Saudi Arabia investing heavily in this sector. We have implemented our Academic Records Management solution at a number of universities in UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain in the last few months. Hence we felt it is important to showcase Focus ARMS as a one stop solution for Universities & Educational Institutions at GITEX,” explained Mr. Hyder.
Focus also plans to showcase the beta version of their yet-to-be released ERP - Focus 8, which is not just another upgraded version from the previous versions but is completely written from scratch.
