Breukelen, The Netherlands: As the reach of visualfabriq’s game-changing Trade Promotion Master™ solution continues to expand in international FMCG markets, the specialised SaaS provider has finalised its partnership with South Africa’s largest technology provider, EOH. Joining forces with EOH enables visualfabriq to meet growing customer demand for its advanced solutions by leveraging EOH’s IT implementation and project management expertise, particularly in the African, Middle Eastern and other markets outside of Europe.
Jaco Brussé, visualfabriq CEO, explains that EOH was selected as their preferred implementation partner due to EOH’s culture of entrepreneurship and their capacity to support the international roll-out of Trade Promotion Master™ when it comes to project management, change management and e-learning. “EOH’s specific focus on the FMCG sector as one of their key verticals made them even more compelling as our partner of choice,” he says.
Listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange since 1998, employing over 12 500 professionals and with an increasing global footprint, EOH is Africa’s largest tech provider of enterprise applications and other IT services and solutions. Key to the new partnership is the business’s extensive local know-how and experience in successfully rolling out tech solutions.
“It’s very exciting for EOH to be working with a fast-growing, driven and very promising Dutch SaaS provider such as visualfabriq,” says Bart Bender, EOH’s managing director. “Trade Promotion Master™ has already been independently recognised as a ‘Best in Class’ solution when it comes to trade promotion optimisation. There’s no doubt that this is a tool with the potential ignite growth and development in the FMCG sectors where we operate, and we’re pleased to play our role in that.”
The visualfabriq and EOH partnership began their first implementation of Trade Promotion Master™ for South African FMCG giant Tiger Brands in February, and further projects are due to be launched during the course of 2017.
