SAP Africa signs strategic cloud agreement with Nigerian based Oryx Computer Systems
In a move to bolster its SAP® Business One Cloud solution implementations for Small to Medium Business Enterprises (SMEs) across West African states, SAP Africa has signed a private cloud licensing agreement with Oryx Computer Systems, a multiple award-winning SAP AG partner.
Since its inception in 2005, Oryx has distinguished itself as the largest SAP Business Management solutions and services company for SMEs across the region, using SAP solutions to drive businesses to seamless business process integration and increased productivity
The agreement allows Oryx Computer Systems to offer managed cloud-based SAP services in the West African market at an affordable price point.
“The licensing agreement is a natural extension of our on-going positive relationship with SAP to meet our SME customers’ requirements for fixed-cost, scalable industry-specific solutions. With more than 300 000 thriving SMEs in Nigeria and the global trend for subscription-based cloud services accelerating, we are able to capitalise on this untapped market,” said Tayo Adegbola, Managing Director at Oryx Computer Systems.
Adegbola stated that with the International Finance Reporting Standard (IFRS) coming into effect in Nigeria in 2014 which aims to strengthen accounting transparency of company financial statements, Oryx will have the opportunity to work hand-in-glove customers to meet country-specific compliance and regulatory payroll needs.
Richard Edet, Managing Director, SAP West Africa said that Nigeria has always been a strategic market for SAP solutions.
“With reliable Internet connectivity reaching critical mass in West Africa, SME cloud-based services are becoming a reliable and affordable alternative to on-premise solutions. With dynamic partners like Oryx, SAP® Business One Cloud will provide small businesses or subsidiaries of large companies with a dynamic software solution to manage all critical business processes in a cloud-based offering without the need for additional infrastructure and at a fixed cost.
“Oryx is a multiple award winning SAP AG partner in Nigeria and with a solid track-record for implementing and supporting SAP solutions,” concluded Edet.
