Following a successful two-day seminar in which they introduced the LANDesk Management Suite 7 to the UAE, renowned solution providers LANDesk Software and Intertec Systems are to launch a concentrated effort to target new users across the GCC region.

Aimed at government, oil, gas, banking and finance sectors, Management Suite 7 claims to enhance business performance with new components including software license monitoring, profile migration, and expanded Macintosh support by expanded inventory and remote control.

In an ongoing promotion, to build a strong reseller network, Intertec will be touring the new product in the region with a series of roadshows, seminars and event participation planned for the coming months. The company hopes to recruit at least ten partners for its target region by the end of this year.

Pietro Calderara, LANDesk’s regional manager for Europe Middle East and Africa, said the entry of the Management Suite 7 would see a greater impact on the region with the product. “LANDesk is accelerating technology development and this product clearly shows our intention to be the best on the market.”

The GCC is seen as an integral part of LANDesk’s global market for selling the new solution, and with Intertec’s assistance the company hopes to attract new users from Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

“LANDesk has introduced a very flexible offering to this region and we aim to enhance its presence and market penetration through these initiatives,” said Naresh Kothari, managing director of Intertec.

Extolling the benefits of Management Suite 7 at the launch was the Ministry of Labour’s deputy minister Ahmed Kajoor, one of the first customers to take up the product. Kajoor said the implemention of LANDesk’s solution through Intertec had helped increase the Ministry’s productivity.

“At the Ministry of Labour between 98 and 2001 we had 400 PCs, and while we wanted a firm network installed, my staff could not cope with the support needed. We had a huge problem with managing this network. Today with LANDesk we are now able to operate 600 PC with 4 staff over another 30 offices, for us that’s amazing,” said Kajoor.
