Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) July 27, 2009
Techneos today announces a new strategic partnership with South African, Microsoft Gold-certified partner, Mint Management Technologies, a subsidiary of Simeka Business Group. This new software reselling arrangement will streamline the purchase and support options for Techneos clients in Africa who use mobile survey software.
Africa, and South Africa in particular, represents one of the fastest growing research markets in the world. This partnership establishes Mint with exclusive rights to sell and support Techneos' Entryware product line in Africa. Further, this new strategic alliance is enabling Techneos and Mint to work in collaboration to support a strong base of African clients who are already using Entryware mobile survey software on hundreds of mobile devices in over a dozen African languages.
"We are working hard to provide the very highest level of support and product compatibility to our already strong base of African clients" says Sean Conry, VP of Business Development at Techneos Systems. "Our latest product release adds support for Kinyarwanda (Rwanda), Ganda (Uganda), Tswana, Tsonga, Venda, Ndebele and Swati, further establishing Entryware as one of the most international research platforms on the planet."
With strong experience in technology and research, Mint is strongly established to be able to offer exceptional customer service to all Techneos customers in Africa as well as sales assistance and customer support, all by knowledgeable staff in the customer's own time zone.
"We are excited to announce this new partnership with Mint. With the explosive growth of mobile technology adoptions happening in Africa right now, we needed to find a leader in business mobility solutions. To have Microsoft Gold Certification as well as experience in the research industry is rare, indeed. With Mint's background and local market experience, this partnership will bring an increased level of service to our customers," says Dave King, CEO at Techneos.
"Mint's choice to partner with Techneos has been an exciting decision for our company. The partnership aligns to Mint's strategy of providing and supporting best of breed technologies within the mobile application industry. Mint is highly committed to assisting Techneos' expansion and support within the African region. The relationship to date has been very productive with a strong alignment in values and work ethic. This will be a fantastic partnership," says Dave Woolnough, Managing Director at Mint Management Technologies.
Since 1995, clients in 50 countries have used our survey software to conduct sophisticated questionnaires on a wide range of mobile phones, PDAs, Ultra-Mobile PCs, Tablet PCs and Laptops. Our Entryware™ and SODA™ software platforms can be licensed as stand-alone systems that integrate into our customers technology infrastructure, or available as a hosted software-as-a-service offering. http://www.techneos.com
