The reseller agreement with MIC covers a number of Infor solutions
Infor, a provider of business application software has appointed MIC (Middle East Investment Company) as a new channel partner for the region. The reseller agreement with MIC covers a number of Infor solutions including Infor ERP LN and Infor Enterprise Asset Management. Infor now uses twenty sales and implementation partners for its Middle East operations.
“Our channel strategy is not about the quantity of partners. Instead we want to work with a smaller number of quality, growth-oriented partners who understand the value Infor solutions can bring to their client base”, says Paul Hammond, regional vice president and general manager, Middle East, Infor.
Infor ERP LN has over 30 modules and is meant for complex manufacturing, distribution and service industries. This includes engineering-based industries, such as automotive, industrial equipment and machinery, electronics, aerospace and defence. The solution was recently deployed at Metito Overseas in the UAE, which provides water, wastewater treatment and desalination systems.
MIC, a privately held boutique investment company, operates across 13 countries and has recently acquired eight regional technology vendors in the last 18 months. One of MIC’s key channel partners is its subsidiary United Computer Company, Saudi Arabia whose customer relationships extend across manufacturing, retail, education, financial services, energy, oil and gas.
“There is a significant opportunity to leverage upon the existing Baan customer base particularly in KSA which has been established over many years. We also believe mid-size and large manufacturing communities are becoming more aware of the benefits of acquiring and integrating Infor solutions”, said Abdulaziz Sheikh, CEO UCC Saudi Arabia.
MIC will work with other established Infor channel partners in the Middle East to co-operate in the sale of Infor’s supply chain management solutions. Another reason for signing up with MIC is its long standing expertise in Baan ERP across the region.
