ACCPAC International has become a member of the Information Technology Association of Jordan (Int@j). The software vendor, which has worked to build its market in Jordan in recent years, aims to bring new opportunities to the developer community in the kingdom.

One of the biggest opportunities with ACCPAC is through its worldwide partner network, which is brings together developers around the globe to share ideas, explained Raed Bilbessi of Int@j.

“By having ACCPAC as members in Int@j, we bring exciting opportunities to Jordanian software developers as well as small to medium businesses in the country, thanks to ACCPAC’s business model and its software architecture,” he said.

“Particularly of interest to us and the software industry that Jordan is determined to build, is the fact that ACCPAC takes our industry to the world through its network of business partners. Jordan-based ACCPAC partners can become part of an international community that exchanges knowledge and business and this is the exposure that we need,” he added.

ACCPAC has been working with its partners in Jordan to develop its business, and has also introduced training on its accountancy software to accounting courses at Al Isra University. Its solutions have also been adopted by private and government organisations throughout Jordan.

“Our local market has always been striving for best of breed solutions combined with best of class services,” said Hatem Salah, UBA general manager, an Amman-based ACCPAC business partner. “Local Jordanian firms in general tend to feel more secure and put greater trust in solutions providers when these are backed by strong international players. It is ACCPAC’s continued commitment to Jordan and the Middle East in general and its support to its business partners that creates our competitive edge, drives the trust of ACCPAC clients in us, and helps us grow our business.”

Marc Van der Ven, general manager of ACCPAC Middle East commented: “Jordan’s competitive edge is in its human resources and their ability to bring a value-add to technology through customisation, integration, Arabisation and other software related services. Int@j is the body that can help create these opportunities, build Jordan’s capabilities and increase the credibility of its businesses and environment on the global stage. This is also where ACCPAC and Int@j meet. We have been very active in the Jordanian market and with the Int@j membership, we plan to cement this expansion.”
