Pro Technology announces storage partnerships to achieve Saudi coverage

Dubai-based storage integrator Pro Technology has ramped up its presence in Saudi Arabia by striking up relationships with two local IT outfits.

The company has signed a strategic partnership with Jeddah-based Almariah Supplies & Services Company (MSSCO) and appointed I-technosoft as a distributor for its own portfolio of Securewave products.

Under the terms of the agreement, MSSCO will act as a representative for Pro Technology’s products and solutions.

The company offers a range of storage products from vendors such as IBM and Lacie, but its push into Saudi will initially only cover devices from Qualstar, Storageflex and Canto.

Jamal Maraqa, managing director at Pro Technology, said: “Being the distributors for leading names such as Qualstar, Nexsan, Symantec, Storageflex, and Canto, we are keen to introduce their state-of-the-art solutions to this high growth market.

Customers can also be assured of high quality consultancy and aftersales services from Pro Technology.”

Abdullah Almutrif, managing director for Saudi Arabia at Pro Technology, added: “Saudi Arabia is also the biggest and fastest growing IT market in the region.

IT spending in the country exceeded US$8 billion in 2005, which represents 45% of the total spending for the GCC.

With an annual growth rate of 20%, the IT spending is expected to touch US$60 billion by the year 2020,” he added.

Pro Technology boasts MEA offices in the UAE, Iran, Jordan, Libya and Sudan.
