Easthampton, MA & Cape Town, South Africa (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
InFlight Corporation, a Microsoft ISV whose software enables clients to extend their Oracle applications to SharePoint and mobile devices, and Complexus, a SharePoint software distributor and consultancy, announced today their partnership to bring InFlight’s best-in-class technology to South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Initially drawn to SharePoint for its document management and collaborative capabilities, many organizations are now seeking to expand their intranet portals to include line-of-business systems integration. There are two primary drivers behind this trend.
- First, end-users find SharePoint significantly more user-friendly relative to the often complex and cumbersome navigation inherent in enterprise applications like PeopleSoft and JD Edwards. By extending these applications to SharePoint organizations are able to substantially improve the end-user experience and increase productivity while saving on training costs.
- Second, SharePoint is proving to be a solid platform around which organizations can build and launch their mobile strategies.
“SharePoint continues to grow in popularity as the intranet portal platform of choice for enterprise-level organizations across the African Continent,” says Complexus Managing Partner, Nick Bradshaw, ”As a result, we’ve seen a sharp increase in demand among South African companies for solutions capable of quickly, easily and cost-effectively integrating critical line-of-business (LoB) systems into SharePoint. Not only are they seeking to improve the end-user experience for systems like PeopleSoft and JD Edwards, but they’re also keen to avoid the training costs commonly associated with these systems. By partnering with InFlight we’re able to provide organizations in the region with direct access to a best-in-class technology that not only enables them to extend their Oracle applications to SharePoint, but from there to mobile devices. This type of multi-purpose solution is exactly what cost-conscious organizations here in Southern Africa are looking for,” he adds.
“We’re excited to be partnered with Complexus,” says John Bonin, Marketing Director, InFlight Corporation. “They’ve built a very well-respected SharePoint consulting organization that is focused on identifying best-in-class solutions and then applying them to the needs of Enterprise clients in the local market. We encourage organizations attending SharePoint Saturday Cape Town on the 7th of September 2013 to introduce themselves to Nick and his team and share with them their long-term plans for SharePoint ERP integration and mobile needs. It would be a great opportunity to learn more about how InFlight can deliver a richer, more productive and engaging end-user experience across SharePoint and mobile.”
