HP Middle East has opened its eighth office in the region at the Knowledge Oasis Muscat (KOM) in Oman. HP claims that the new operation will play a pivotal role in the development of closer links with its Omani channel partners. The inauguration ceremony was hosted by Joseph Hanania, managing director at HP Middle East and was attended by customers from the Sultanate. “Oman is critical to our continued success and future growth in the Middle East region and we have great pride in opening HP’s first Omani premises at KOM,” said Hanania. “HP already has a strong track record of success in Oman, particularly within government, services and finance. As Oman continues to strengthen its own position on the Middle East map, the new office will enable us to engage more closely with existing and potential customers, helping them achieve their personal and business goals through our leading-edge technology,” he added. The Muscat office will act as a direct resource for HP’s Omani distributors and retailers. HP Muscat will be charged with developing the in-country channel in order to enhance the overall customer experience from pre-sales through to support. HP currently operates a number of channel improvement programmes in the region and anticipates more participation from existing Omani partners. The company also expects more new Omani partners to start working with HP following the opening of a dedicated office in Muscat. “HP’s ongoing success in Oman is dependent not only on winning new customers but on ensuring these customers have the right support at all stages of implementation before, during and after sales,” said Hanania. “For this reason it is essential that we continue to integrate our Omani partners into our highly successful channel improvement programmes.” Sultan Salim Al Habsi, executive president at KOM, said: “Knowledge Oasis Muscat is delighted to welcome HP as a tenant. We are confident that HP will add substantial value to Oman’s rapidly growing ICT sector.” HP’s Muscat office will advise and support the HP channel in its distribution of the full suite of HP technology and solutions including imaging and printing products, personal computing solutions and enterprise solutions.
