September 22, 2005: Focus Softnet, the leading Software development company in the Middle East, is gearing up to participate in Gitex for the tenth consecutive year. The Enterprise Software Solutions vendor plans to unveil the latest release of Focus RT and its new Point of Sale Solution in addition to displaying its well known brands like Focus RT, Focus 6, Streamline CRM and ARMs at Gitex 2005.

Exhibiting at Sheikh Rashid Hall (Stand No. J9 â€" 1), Focus Softnet plans to use Gitex as a platform to launch its latest solutions and to raise its profile, position and brand image that it has gained over the years in the Middle East. Focus also plans to recruit and build a strong channel network this year at Gitex.

“Gitex has given us great response and leads over the years. Hence we felt it will be the right platform for us to launch the latest release of Focus RT and our new Point of Sale solution,� Ali Hyder, CEO of Focus Softnet explains.

“Our latest version of Focus RT will have a new exciting feature added in the enterprise application which will allow users to connect to the ERP from remote location without having to use any external software like third party connectivity tools or solutions or terminal services. This feature will allow users to connect from anywhere in the world to the Focus Server using SOCK Technology. The users would benefit as they would not need purchase any separate software for connecting the locations where they want to give the access. The system works smoothly on dialup, DSL or VPN connections. The only thing required is a defined Network using a static IP of lease line or even a telephone line address on the server. It would ensure that the customer gets full benefit of the whole application as if he was working on a Local Area Network. Apart from direct connectivity, Focus also provides offline solutions/Distributed Networks whereby users can work separately without connections and synchronizes data when connection becomes available.� Ali adds.

Focus’ latest Point of Sale solution is designed specially for the retail segment and super market operations with complete back-office accounting. It is feature-rich, competitively priced and will be great value for money. Focus plans to offer this solution at a very special Gitex price.

Focus uses the latest technologies to develop their products and customise them by offering regional specific features, which reduce the time of implementation. The solutions developed by Focus Softnet are primarily business applications for different verticals. Focus has started a training centre at their Sharjah Support Centre whereby Focus users will be given in depth training on all their products. Focus also offers corporate group training and individual training for new and existing users.

“Visitors at the tradeshow are always looking for new products, solutions and partnerships. Product launches help IT managers in their decision making process. They are able to see what is available in the market place for either their existing projects or new ones. Gitex is a big event and visitors from all over the region are gathered under one roof and we try our best to cater to their needs� he observes.

In addition to launching its latest solutions at Gitex 2005, Focus also plans to aggressively recruit performance oriented channels and resellers for their lower end products. Senior executives from Focus Softnet and their partners will be available to meet potential customers, vendor and channel partners this Gitex.
