The components within ETP V5.2 can be used comprehensively or selectively to provide an end-to-end integrated solution for retailers and distributors.Inter Soft is the first channel partner that ETP International has signed for Saudi Arabia and in the Middle East. Although it has a regional office in Dubai, ETP International plans to leverage on the market knowledge and cultural understanding of the local partner to open up the market in Saudi Arabia.
“Inter Soft is entering a new phase in its business strategy. Where previously we were offering customers only point-of-sales solutions, we can now look at a holistic offering for our retail customers,” said Mr Ammar Al-Qai, General Manager of Inter Soft.
“The retail market in the Middle East is growing. We have identified the potential in growing this area of our business by partnering with a software company that offers a robust and modern retail solution. The strong commitment, support and specialisation that ETP has dedicated to building a pure retail solution gave us the assurance that we have made the right choice to grow with this partner.”
ETP’s Chairman, Naresh Ahuja stated, “We are pleased to have signed the partnership agreement with InterSoft. This is a company that is well-established and respected. InterSoft’s business philosophy is similar to ETP’s in which we put our customers first. With values such as commitment to quality and after sales service underpinning the company’s strategy, we know that we have found a good fit.”
The partnership was signed in Singapore and plans have been made to take the solution to market in Saudi Arabia. For a start, InterSoft will be launching ETP V5.2 in GITEX 2006 at its booth in the Sheikh Maktoum Hall and ETP will also be on hand to lend support from its booth under the Singapore Pavilion at the same event.
