ASYST International SA today announced that they have partnered with Zambia's leading IT solutions provider, Necor Zambia Limited, in order to accelerate the introduction of the benefits of Access Accounts software to the African market.

  Necor Zambia is already the sole distributor of NCR products in that country and has a high-profile blue chip client base that will be well served by the mid-market products within the Access Accounts suite.

  Established in 1948, Necor is the oldest and largest IT company in Zambia, and includes within its portfolio a range of solutions that encompasses hardware, networking, wireless technology and specialised banking solutions.

  "We are excited by the opportunities presented by the Access Accounts range of products," commented Friday Mwamba, Managing Director of Necor Zambia. "By offering our customers a powerful financial and MIS system such as Access Accounts, we move one step closer to providing a complete end-to-end IT solution not only to our own user base, but to other potential clients."

  "We are looking to emulate the success we have achieved in East Africa, where key accounts such as Deloitte, Siemens and Ogilvy & Mather have adopted Access Accounts as their accounting solutions," added Paul Marketos, MD of ASYST International SA. "The key to success in Africa is finding the right partner, and we are confident that in Necor we have a partner who will uphold the values of service excellence and customer care that have been the cornerstones of our success in both South and East Africa."
