IFS has appointed Kgosi Informatics of Botswana and iNENSA of Uganda as business partners in order to expand its reach in fast-growing markets in Sub-Saharan Africa.

IFS will collaborate with the two companies to provide customers with enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM) and enterprise service management (ESM) solutions in its target markets. Greater Africa IFS customers will benefit from the industry expertise and technical skills on offer from Kgosi Informatics and iNENSA.

iNENSA is a systems integrator with vast experience in implementing business solutions that help companies in the manufacturing, service provider, utility, retail, education and financial services sectors to streamline their business processes and enhance their agility. The company operates in Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Burundi.

Kgosi Informatics is a Botswana-based software and solutions company that helps organisations in the public and private sectors to drive efficiencies in their businesses. It will focus on the defense vertical in partnership with IFS.

Consultants from both companies joining the IFS Partner Network will be certified through IFS Academy — the official IFS training and certification program. They will be equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to ensure customers realise the most value from IFS Applications.

Neville Wattanga, assistant vice-president: solutions at iNENSA, says: “Our goal is to help clients in our target vertical markets to become more flexible, efficient and profitable. IFS offers world-class technology and specialist industry expertise that can help African companies to drive operational excellence, competiveness, and innovation.”
