Firm returns to GITEX with Focus 8 platform. Focus Softnet has returned to GITEX Technology Week 2015 with its popular Focus 8 platform, an ERP that allows a company to have a way of accessing all the information and data in that company in one single location. A key difference this year, however, is that Focus Softnet has partnered with Redington and Cloud Host to offer both CRM and Focus 8 on the cloud.
“Last year we launched our next-generation ERP Focus 8, which was very well received by the market,” says Ali Hyder, CEO, Focus Softnet. “This year we’re consolidating the Focus 8 market by finding more partners.” According to Hyder, this is the primary reason that Focus Softnet has presented at GITEX every year since its launch.
“We’ve been part of GITEX for many years and we’ve participated every single year because it is a perfect platform on which to present to a large audience in five days and create leads. It’s also an opportunity to network and find new partners,” says Hayder.
By partnering with local players to migrate Focus 8 to the cloud, Focus Softnet has significantly expanded the ways in which it can be used by a company. “An ERP allows a company to have a way of accessing all the information and data in a company in one single location. So before there was excel and word documents and other programs, but an ERP integrates all of this into one single platform, providing a view of the activities of all departments,” Hayder explains.
“Now with the migration to the cloud, it goes beyond the office and enables customers to place their orders directly, so you no longer need a data operator in the office manually tracking these orders,” Hayder adds.
