XRT continues to expand its distribution network in France and abroad.

Four new VARs* join XRT’s Business Partners Network. DATASOFT Tunisia and STERI AL Consulting in Algeria reinforce XRT’s presence in Africa while JLR Distribution and DATASOFT France enlarge the XRT network in metropolitan France.

DATASOFT-Tunisia and DATASOFT-France, specialists in NAVISION management systems integration, will commercialise XRT’s product range in Tunisia and the Midi-Pynénées region, respectively.

STERI AL Consulting, based in Algeria, works with the corporate sector, integrating JD Edwards’ ERP products in addition to proposing back-office solutions to the banking sector. This distribution agreement will permit STERI AL to complete their management portfolio, adding sales of treasury platforms and bank communication tools, notably XRT-Pilot 5 Server Bank and Corporate.

Retail specialist based in Lyon, JLR Distribution will distribute the XRT-Collect solution at the national level, allowing them to widen their expertise in the financial arena and, more specifically, into credit management and collections.

"These choices reflect our strategic orientation. In order to respond effectively to the needs of Financial Directors in the optimization of their Financial Value Chain, we wish to team up with partners who have the technical and functional expertise of integrated management solutions." said Jean Beaufort, SEMEA (Southern Europe Middle East Africa) and International Partner Network General Manager at XRT.

The new distribution agreements will grow XRT’s sales presence in these areas and target businesses making less than 200 million euros per year, the segment which the group’s indirect sales network serves.

"We would like to recruit other partners in the principal French regions and in the coming months we will firm up partnerships with other actors in the distribution of management solutions", commented Roger Mechri, Manager Partnership Network France. "In the mid-term, we are targeting ten further VARs, whose local expertise will allow us to penetrate both service enterprises and local industries."

The professional competence and quality of service of these new VARs will be guaranteed through the "XRT Business Partners” certification program, a rigorous training and testing program in the various XRT solutions.
