It is natural that we follow the recommendations of Sage. Preactor for X3 is the perfect solution for the production platform and brings value to our customers.

Preactor EUROPE, a wholly owned subsidiary of Preactor International LTD and specialist in planning and scheduling solutions, today announced a distribution agreement with STAR ENGINEERING and a new shared customer, SOPAL.

STAR ENGINEERING, Sage ERP X3 integrator on the Tunisian market and in North Africa, has chosen Preactor’s planning and scheduling products to provide a comprehensive solution to its customers. Preactor solutions are certified by Sage internationally and recommended to complement Sage ERP X3.

"It is natural that we follow the recommendations of Sage. Preactor for X3 is the perfect solution for the production platform and brings value to our customers," said Anouar ZOUARI, Director of STAR ENGINEERING.

"We look forward to this partnership," said Thierry FAGUET, Operations Director of Preactor Europe. "North Africa has a strong development potential, the demand is there, but like any new market, it is better to rely on local experts who know on the one hand the local economy and the culture as well. We are confident of STAR ENGINEERING’s excellent reputation and expertise around Sage ERP X3.

"The best evidence of success is the signing of our customer SOPAL only shortly after the distribution agreement, and whose project is already underway," concludes Anouar ZOUARI.
SOPAL specializes in production of brass items such as sanitary fittings and plumbing and is a leader in its field in Tunisia.

Already equipped with Sage ERP X3, his choice was naturally inclined to Preactor solutions to manage their finer production constraints.

"We chose Preactor because it has a native interface with Sage X3, a user-friendly interface and mainly for its calculation module component availability" says M. REGAYEG, IT and Purchasing Director of SOPAL.
