Doha, May 13, 2013:- Mackeen Technology, one of the fastest growing technology companies in Qatar, and Vodafone Qatar have formed a strategic partnership to deploy corporate business solutions targeting Qatar's Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
Under the terms of the partnership, Vodafone will leverage Mackeen's extensive ties with the local SME sector to roll out its new business solutions. The partnership reflects Vodafone's commitment to support Qatar's National Vision 2030 by introducing solutions that can significantly enhance commercial productivity of businesses.
An estimated 98 per cent of companies in Qatar are classified as SMEs, making the sector an important market for auxiliary industries such as telecommunications. A survey of Small Office, Home Office (SOHO) and SME representatives shows that demand for video conferencing and mobile data in particular continues to grow. The run-up to the FIFA World Cup 2022 which Qatar will be hosting is expected to charge the business climate even further and present greater growth opportunities for SMEs.
“Qatar's thriving SME sector is definitely a priority growth area for supportive industries, especially now that the domestic business scene is booming due to developments such as the FIFA World Cup and progress on Qatar National Vision 2030. We commend Vodafone Qatar for coming up with a unique mobility package that enables SMEs to take advantage of these buoyant times. By using our industry connections Vodafone is broadening the reach of its latest offering,” said Salman Kaldari, CEO of Mackeen Technology.
“Vodafone is committed to serving the SME sector in Qatar by offering solutions that can transform their businesses. Through its excellent reputation and strong ties among Qatar's key industry movers, Mackeen Technology is an ideal partner for us to further broaden the reach of our latest corporate offering,” said Niraj Singh, Director of Vodafone Business Services.
The partnership with Vodafone Qatar comes in addition to Mackeen Technology's string of major projects over the past months. The company has deployed various technology solutions for Diyar, the upcoming Lusail City, Banana Island, Kempinski Residences & Suites Doha, , and Alfardan Jewelry.
The agreement signed recently with Kempinski Residences & Suites Doha, which is Doha's tallest tower, involved developing and installing complete Hotels Monitoring Systems, project control systems and CCTV solution. The contract also covered maintenance and system redundancy for the next five years, while the CCTV network required the installation of 750 surveillance cameras and a dedicated data centre.

Over the years, the company has built a reputation for stocking the latest technology products that ensure its clients can be offered the most advanced and highest quality solutions whenever required.
