14 October 2015 · Small and medium companies can securely access enterprise solutions on the cloud on a monthly rent model as low as USD 10
· Enterprises need not pay expensive infrastructure and implementation charges and have a choice of 55+ third party solutions on the cloud marketplace
Dubai: Leading a new trend of retailing cost-effective enterprise solutions from a cloud-based platform, Sydney-based tech firm, Maestrano has forayed into the UAE offering a marketplace of apps for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
In a statement, Maestrano EMEA DMCC said the cloud-based apps marketplace has currently over 55 third party enterprise solutions which can be accessed and used by SMEs on monthly rents as low as USD 10. These solutions range from CRM systems to project management and sales management tools to ERP modules and accounting systems, to mention a few.
"The cloud-based enterprise apps market is a novel concept - one that offers companies which traditionally shy away from enterprise solutions because of high costs of license fees and installation charges a viable path to automate their businesses," said Stephane Ibos, CEO of Maestrano.
He said ever since Maestrano pioneered the concept, its client base of companies accessing the cloud store has grown to many thousands across the world. "Our growing client base is an effective endorsement of the need of the market for such an online enterprise solutions strategy."
Maestrano opened its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) headquarters in DMCC, Dubai in the beginning of the year and it is now close to partnering with leading business bodies and business cluster focus groups to offer enterprise solutions to their partners and clients. "We believe that our strategy of offering need-based enterprise solutions which cost almost 90 per cent less than traditional enterprise suites is a definite win-win in the UAE considering that over 70 per cent of the businesses in the UAE comprise SMEs," said Philippe Fanjere, Vice President Europe, Middle East and Africa of Maestrano EMEA DMCC.
He said the Maestrano EMEA DMCC solutions are also ideal for startups as the innovative online software and enterprise app store eliminates the need for multiple licenses, multiple data entry and multiple charges. A startup can implement key business solutions and automate key business processes in the early stages, giving them a competitive advantage and the ability to scale.
Maestrano EMEA DMCC also addresses the need for seamless and real-time data integration between applications and eliminates the need to import, export or setup point to point integrations. Allowing SMEs to have an integrated view of all their information, the comprehensive dashboards are multi app, multi company and multi geography- providing a single view of corporate data that even large enterprises struggle with" Fanjere added.
Maestrano currently have offices in Sydney, Seattle, San Francisco, Singapore, Dubai and London.
Maestrano was launched commercially in January 2014 to help small and medium businesses to run their operations from one place, sharing, analyzing and reporting data at no extra cost. Maestrano is a cloud based platform that provides best of breed applications at an affordable price for small and medium businesses. The aim is to provide the same integrated solutions large companies use, at a fraction of the price. The company was founded by entrepreneurs Stephane Ibos and Arnaud Lachaume, who recognized a gap in the technology market for small and medium businesses.
