South African software firm opens shop in Dar es Salaam

Mala Bhatt, Managing Director of Bluekey East Africa said in Dar es Salaam over the weekend that  with the opening of an office in Tanzania, the company was moving to fill a void in a market which is still yawning for qualified, on-the-ground support in implementing and optimizing integrated business management tools.

“We will enable companies to drive efficiencies, gain competitive edge and increase profits,” he said. He said that since opening shop in Dar es Salaam, the company has established itself as a major player in the provisioning of enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to companies, enjoying exceptional growth.

“With Tanzania growing rapidly, and fast becoming a commercial hub in Africa, there is a definite and increasing need amongst companies here for systems that can provide the insight, control and visibility they need to effectively manage growth efficiently and profitably,” he said.

He further explained that Bluekey implements, supports and develops enterprise resource planning and accounting solutions for SME’s and was delighted to open a presence in Tanzania.  “We are currently responsible for almost 50 per cent of SAP (Systems, Applications and Products) in data processing business one sales in South and East Africa have expanded from its initial beginnings of core ERP to incorporate development, networking, business intelligence and mobility solutions into its portfolio,” he said, adding:

“For years, ERP vendors have serviced their customers in Africa from a distance and as a result, companies sometimes battle to find the necessary technical support for implementations, maintenance and customizations”. However, he said that the demand for integrated business management tools is growing to the extent that this model cannot adequately support the requirements of companies in Africa.

“Our success in the African region, including Tanzania, is due to our approach to build a strong, locally-accessible support base for companies using SAP Business One. Our customer base is diverse and many of them are regional concerns, which show that it’s not only the big companies with international ties that are keen to leverage ERP to drive business efficiency”.
