Bluekey Software Solutions, which deals with SAP Business One, has opened a branch in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The company deals in business management software solutions for small and medium sized companies.
Speaking in Dar es Salaam during launch, Bluekey Group Managing Director Dennis Marketos, said the branch followed branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Nairobi.
The new branch will be supported by Bluekey’s successful Nairobi-based office, and aims to meet the needs of Tanzanian companies for professionally implemented business management systems, as well as providing services to Kenyan and South African subsidiaries active in Tanzania.
Marketos said the move was also an affirmation of the growing importance of Dar es Salaam as a gateway between Africa and Asia, and as a thriving commercial hub in its own right.
With GDP growth in Tanzania running at 6%, he said Bluekey was the ideal IT partner to assist companies to capitalise on new opportunities and equip them with business systems to manage expansion efficiently and profitably
The Bluekey Tanzania branch will help to provide IT solutions to small and medium companies, which will speed up ICT development of the country.
