The partnership agreement enables Sage to expand its presence in the Middle East, simplify and improve operational processes, and reach new markets and new customers. Redington was considered to be in the best position to support the long-term growth strategy of Sage in the Middle East. The agreement covers the UAE, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.
Pieter Bensch, EVP for Africa and Middle East, Sage, said: “Businesses in the Middle East have long recognised the need to move from legacy business software systems to smarter cloud-based business solutions that are both affordable and fit for purpose. By partnering with Redington, we have the opportunity to expand Sage’s footprint across the region, work with their extensive partner network to reach new customers and embed Sage values across the ecosystem. We will refocus existing efforts on the UAE and KSA and expand to new markets, including Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Jordan. We look forward to also growing our independent software vendor network and provide companies in the GCC with more tailored and vertical-specific solutions.”

The agreement grants Redington the official distribution rights for Sage 300, Sage 300 People, Sage CRM, Sage X3 and Sage 200, all of which are award-winning cloud-powered software solutions for accounting, payments, payroll and more that cater to medium-sized enterprises.
