Informatica, names FFC units distributor
Doha, January 3, 2012
Informatica Qatar (iQ), a leading IT consultancy, has added two units of Qatar-based Family Food Centre (FFC), a leader in food and non-food products, to its list of exclusive local distributors of Huawei mobile devices.
FFC’s MicroWorld store deals with telecom and IT products including accessories and software, while Dubai Technology is a well known mobile retail shop that conducts its business through several outlets in Qatar.
Under the terms of their partnership with iQ, both establishments will distribute mobile phones manufactured by Huawei, the second-largest supplier of mobile telecom infrastructure equipment in the world.
Huawei recently chose iQ to distribute and provide after-sales service for the Huawei IDEOS, IDEOS X5 and its future Qatari launches.
The Android OS 2.2 (Froyo)-powered IDEOS is ideal for heavy users of multimedia, social networking sites, instant messaging and email, while the higher-end Huawei X5 runs on Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) with 3D user interface capability and is intended for professionals and tech enthusiasts.
“MicroWorld and Dubai Technology are important to bringing Huawei’s world-class products to Qatar’s mass market,” said Wisam Costandi, general manager, Informatica Qatar.
“So far we have been building up a distinguished network of local partners who have the capability, reputation and market reach to distribute Huawei products, and these two establishments reflect the success of our efforts so far. We are eyeing more strategic alliances to capitalize on Qatar’s thriving mobile market and position Huawei as one of its most trusted brands,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
