SAP unit signs JV for Kuwait expansion
Kuwait, June 16, 2014
ProCons, the accredited SAP gold partner and Master VAR for SAP Business One, has signed a joint venture with Al-Awama Group of Companies, a diversified Kuwaiti Group, for ProCons’ expansion in the country.
Kuwait, which is rocketing in diverse services sectors, is moving to integrate the latest IT into the services sector. This decision comes amidst development plans, which heavily rely on a strong IT infrastructure.
The services sector is already playing a major role in the development of the country, and a brighter future depends on whether the expansion in services is supported by strong IT platforms. The support of IT in different sectors establishes robust and collateral benefits for all other sectors: Education and Healthcare, Energy, Telecommunication and Transportation.
Ibrahim Al Ghanim the CEO of Al-Awama Group, said: “The services sector is highly dependent on the IT platforms and infrastructure that we acquire in Kuwait. The service industry is a large and growing source of jobs across the country and our strength in the area will play an important role in economic and social development. Our joint venture with ProCons will establish highly productive sector generating benefits for many industries, and this in return will provide services that power inclusive growth.”
He added: “We are very pleased to have agreed terms and established this joint venture with ProCons. The company is one of the most reputable in its industry and has clear benefits for our investment portfolio. We welcome our new partners and look forward to a long and successful business relationship.”
Wassim Hassanieh, managing director of ProCons, said: “Kuwait is very strategic for us; it took us sometime to find the right partner which shares the same values, but now we are very glad to partner with Al-Awama. Using our industry expertise, technological capabilities and SAP software, we will help move any business entity in Kuwait from one level to another.”
”ProCons strong network and partners is all what Al-Awama needs to significantly improve their performance by brining greater competition and better technologies to any services sector in Kuwait.” Hassanieh added. – TradeArabia News Service
