Ooredoo, one of the region’s leading ICT providers, announced today a new joint initiative with Qatar’s biggest business players to support the end-to-end digital transformation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

This joint initiative sees Ooredoo joining forces with QNB, the biggest bank in Qatar; Moore Stephens, a leading consultancy and provider of technology products and services; Smart Management IT Solutions, which has developed the WallPost enterprise resource planning solution; and Ooredoo, to host the cloud solutions through the Ooredoo Data Centre.

As a result, Qatar’s organisations will be able to gain best-in-class business operations services covering financing, advisory, and operational management.

Enterprise resource planning solutions are the foundation for SMEs to digitally transform, and in turn drive Qatar’s diversified economic growth and job creation. Partners will encourage the adoption of WallPost, so organisations can make the right decisions at the right time.

Yousuf Abdulla Al Kubaisi, Chief Operating Officer, Ooredoo, said: “Ooredoo continues to be Qatar’s leading business technology, with this partnership with Smart Management IT Solutions delivering new levels of cloud-based business models. Using the cloud, SMEs can gain the same capabilities as large enterprises, save time and money on IT, and scale up their services for future growth.”

QNB will also offer training sessions to help SME customers in adopting the WallPost solution.

Mr. Yousef M. Al Neama, General Manager of Group Corporate and Institutional Banking of QNB, said: “QNB is pleased to provide support to this partnership by providing training to our large SME customer base in the use of this new software. QNB is always committed to supporting the development of the Qatari SME sector due to the importance it holds for the development of our national economy and the future development of our country. We will continue to be at the forefront for any partnerships or initiatives that serve this important sector, to support our country’s future growth and prosperity, and to help in the achievement of Qatar’s National Vision 2030.”

Qatar’s SMEs can easily adopt WallPost in a convenient and affordable Software-as-a-Service model. SMEs pay as they use the cloud services, rather than having to invest in their own software and hardware.

Abdulaziz Alsulaiti, Managing Partner, Smart Management IT Solutions, said, “Software as a Service is an exciting new business model for Qatar’s SMEs, giving them access to modules using simplified solutions without massive in-house investment. Qatar is a strong growth market for cloud solutions, allowing enterprises to effectively manage and operate their businesses, and freeing up IT staff to focus on innovation.”

WallPost ERP Solutions help SMEs to generate reports and access information anytime and anywhere and ensures that work is delivered accurately and in a timely manner. With the modules and work flow mechanism that are integrated with each and every department, WallPost makes work easy, and most importantly, the software solution ensures that all the data are safe and protected.

Sami Zaitoon, Managing Partner, Moore Stephens, said: “Moore Stephens Qatar is greatly involved in supporting the continues development of SME sector through offering a wide range of tailored made professional Assurance & Advisory services. WallPost is a solution that reduces the hassle and saves time in the search among the worksheets and helps employees to quickly respond to the requirements of their workflows.”
