Infocomm Signs MoU with Saudi ISP

Oman’s leading m-Commerce firm, Knowledge Oasis Muscat-based Infocomm, is participating this week at GITEX, the Middle East’s premier information communication technology trade show in Dubai. "Last year's show was tremendously successful for us, so it was imperative that we participate this year, particularly since we have a range of new WiFI, M-commerce, e-Learning and e-Gaming solutions to present,” said Singaporean entrepreneur and Infocomm’s MD, Karim Rahemtulla. “In fact, the positive feedback from business partners, ISPs and telco operators strengthened our determination to expand our participation at this year's show and to make greater use of GITEX as an international, strategic platform for presentations and networking," comments Rahemtulla.

The first two days of the show have been highly productive for Infocomm and Rahemtulla is clearly enthusiastic as he describes them. “We were besieged on Saturday and Sunday with quality enquiries - people literally queued up one after the other to see our WiFi, M-commerce e-Learning and e-Gaming solutions.”

Saturday marked a milestone for Infocomm as on they signed an MOU to provide a full turnkey WiFi solution for 7i the Saudi-based ISP (pictured L - R: Karim Rahemtulla, MD, Infocomm with 7i's CEO, Eng. Anas Maisarah Taher) This is the second venture between the two companies since they meet at GITEX last year.

7i has also shown keen interest in Infocomm’s e-Learning content. The possibility of accessing this in the Kingdom on a pay per view basis has been suggested. “We’re providing businesses like 7i with solutions that allow business owners to get on with what they’re good at, running their own business. We don’t expect them to know all the latest WiFI, M-commerce or Internet-based learning strategies nor should they, that’s what we are here for,” says Rahemtulla.

Ibtisam Al Faruji, Head of Marketing at KOM commented from the Park’s stand at GITEX: “Infocomm is one of the region’s leading M-commerce firms providing solutions to organizations working in manufacturing, health, travel, leisure, tourism and education. They’re an extremely competent and proactive international firm. On the domestic scene, they’re certainly revolutionising the way in which Omani companies and government departments think about marketing their products and services. We’re proud to have this calibre of company as a tenant. The level of their participation at GITEX is typical of how they operate – absolutely top class and a credit to all the Infocomm team.”
