OTRS Business Solution™ offers endless configuration possibilities and additional business features that help us to customize the solution to our needs. We are happy to have the technical support of the vendor through an official partner in Africa.

OTRS Group, the world’s leading provider of open-source and cloud-based service management software solutions, is announcing today the successful acquisition of new client Meat Corporation of Namibia (Meatco) through their official OTRS partner in Africa, OSCOSM. OSCOSM provides Meatco with consulting and services, and will carry out the implementation of OTRS Business Solution™, the new ticket management solution for demanding business requirements.

Managed and used by the IT service desk staff, OTRS Business Solution™ will support Meatco in all areas of their business, from enterprise services to meat production services, by making business processes more transparent and efficient. The initial implementation will focus on request fulfillment, incident management and the service catalogue as provided by the OTRS::ITSM module.

Louis Becker, Senior IT Manager at Meatco, explains why they chose OTRS: “For us it was very important that we could simply download OTRS Free, the open source version of the product, and test it beforehand to see if it meets our requirements. OTRS Business Solution™ offers endless configuration possibilities and additional business features that help us to customize the solution to our needs. Last but not least, we are happy to have the technical support of the vendor through an official partner in Africa and reliable, integrated updates of our solution.”

OSCOSM, a South African technology services provider, became an official OTRS partner last year and continues to prospect new customers throughout Africa.

“Our key to success is a strong focus on customer and service centric methodologies underpinned by best practices such as ITIL which OTRS is also aligned with,” said Clinton Bruigom, founder of OSCOSM. “This combination allows us to deliver projects quickly and efficiently for customers such as Meatco.”

Christopher Kuhn, COO of OTRS Group, explains why: “Todays’ businesses need to improve their business processes quickly and at a low initial investment. Often, customers in Africa need to try the solution first - as they cannot risk a high price implementation or expensive upgrades. With the OTRS Business Solution™ we address these needs and even exceed them with additional business features that can be used flexibly, as well as with included professional services without hidden costs.“
