Nokia has taken the first step in its quest to recruit a channel of integration partners in Saudi Arabia for its push e-mail solution, signing up National Technology Group (NTG). The move means that Nokia’s business centre solution is now available for the first time in the Kingdom.

“We are delighted to announce this agreement with NTG, which marks our first delivery of mobile e-mail to the Kingdom,” said Joe Devassy, sales manager for the Nokia enterprise solutions business unit in the Middle and Near East (MNE). “The changing nature of working environments mean many executives travel frequently and work remotely driving a demand for state-of-the-art mobility solutions.”

Ibrahim Al-Zeer, member of NTG’s Board of Directors, added: “The Nokia Business Centre enables businesses to deliver information to all mobile workers in timely and cost-effective manner allowing them to be aware, informed and prepared for key business decisions.”

“This is a powerful proposition and we expect it will prove extremely popular in the Kingdom. We are proud to have met Nokia’s requirements and to join its mobility network,” he added.

NTG positions itself as a total solutions provider in the Kingdom and covers all aspects of the IT industry including enterprise integration, distribution and retail. The company now boasts more than 450 skilled staff and owns a number of different companies including distribution business AIM, retailer Compu-Me Saudi Arabia, integrator Arabic Computer Systems as well as an 80% stake in Getronics’ Middle East.

According to Nokia, NTG will now provide installation, consultancy and after-sales support for companies deploying Nokia’s push-email solutions. The solution allows employees to connect over GPRS or wireless LAN to their corporate e-mail accounts.
