New partner opens the door for Qdabra in South Africa
With the addition of a new Authorized Reseller, UMT SA, Qdabra's partner and customer base now also includes South Africa
"We are very pleased to work with UMT because they have a great reputation in business consulting and proven expertise in InfoPath, SharePoint Project and other Microsoft technologies, and they already have gained new customers like Kumba Iron Ore for Qdabra", says Johan Pellicaan, CEO of the Bridge Incubation Group, business incubators for Qdabra in the EMEA region.
For UMT the partnership with Qdabra means they can build a whole new customer base due to the advanced features and unique ability to integrate InfoPath with SharePoint and SQL Server.
"We have looked for various solutions to help us deliver InfoPath projects faster and with a better integration with other technologies like SQL Server or SharePoint", said Dries van der Colff, Technical Director at UMT Consulting. He continued: "we found the perfect match when we evaluated Qdabra. With the first project we used Qdabra for, we had to redesign hundreds of existing Word based forms into InfoPath and secure the back-end integration of these forms. Qdabra DBL helped us tremendously to speed up this process and will allow the customer to manage their forms environment much better and easier than what would have been possible without DBXL".
"Many IT companies are in the same situation as UMT was before they partnered with Qdabra", said Johan Pellicaan. He continued: "we believe the number of partnerships for the Qdabra solution will grow fast over the next 12 months cross Europe, the Middle East and Africa. A solution where electronic forms are used to collect data for all type of situations with a good integration with back-end systems and workflow and collaboration environments like SharePoint is more important than ever given the economic situation. Organizations can save a lot of money when they use a more efficient system".
