PFS selects Gartner as globalisation advisor
To realize its objective of capturing the international software markets in Europe and the USA, management of Precise Financial Systems [PFS] announced that it has engaged the services of Gartner Consulting as its global advisor, which would lead the company to fulfill its globalization schema.
The engagement, which would be for two years, empowers Gartner to review PFS software solutions including its flagship Clirec and iTeller in order to recognize the possible international markets where the products would be most needed and advise on appropriate market approach.
A statement signed by the MD/CEO of the company, Dr. Yele Okeremi, informed that as the “global advisor to PFS”, Gartner would guide PFS on the strategy for effective globalization as well as engage in “some hand-holding to ensure we get into some specific international markets. Gartner will do this for two years”.
He added that Gartner would provide a fact-based consulting service for PFS to boost its business performance. According to him, Gartner’s expertise would help the international businesses to make the right decisions about adopting PFS software and align their IT initiatives with business objectives as well as connect with industry peers and best practices.
Explaining how Gartner works, Dr. Okeremi said that Gartner has invested in research processes and proprietary methodologies that enable the firm to cut through information “overload, decipher multiple viewpoints and develop insights” that allow their clients to perceive the business landscape more clearly.
“Gartner will give us the information we need, in the context necessary to make both large-scale and everyday decisions with confidence”, Dr. Okeremi said.
Account Manager, Africa, Emerging and Midsize Technology Providers at Gartner, Joseph Banks, said, “As Precise embraces international markets, our research process embodies a way of thinking that turns complex information into insight, which Precise can use for its business advantage. Our underlying methodologies are a tested set of research practices, procedures and rules used to collect and analyze information. This is what Precise stands to benefit as we work together to achieve its globalization objective it has set.”
