Laserfiche talks Digital Transformation at GITEX 2017

Laserfiche International was delighted to participate at GITEX 2017 from 8 – 12 October in Dubai. GITEX, one of the Middle East’s premier technology conferences plays host to nearly 150,000 people across the four days as well as around 4,500 exhibitors. LFI exhibited with BMB, its exclusive distributer in the MENA region, and 8 regional Value Added Resellers, showcasing our products and solutions as well as the Digital Transformation Model. LFI has participated at GITEX since the early 2000s.

 “GITEX is a fantastic show and a wonderful opportunity for us to network with the entire community in the Middle East Region,” said Sean Tang, Managing Director & VP of International Business. “Laserfiche’s solutions are helping companies in the Middle East and around the world with their Digital Transformation journey. Our ECM solutions change the way businesses operate and transform how their staff and teams think and act so that they can be more efficient, profitable and customer responsive. All of this helps organizations ensure that they are ready for everything that this ever changing business and digital world brings.”

During the show the team talked to many customers and prospects, discussing how digital transformation is helping companies to reimagine reality (a GITEX theme), how ECM is helping companies to look at different ways of doing business to succeed in increasingly competitive markets and how to find new and innovative ways of doing things to help their businesses grow – all elements that underpin Laserfiche’s Run Smarter philosophy. 

“In today’s era of volatility, Digital Transformation has become a necessity rather than a choice. And what’s better than GITEX, the world's fastest growing technology hub, to spread the word” said Nizar Ghannam, bmb Direct COO. “Organizations should be well-aware that we live in a data-driven world that entails digital dexterity, so businesses must opt for Digitalization as a strategy to alternate their entire company to secure their next decades’ survival.

“As of each year in GITEX, we work to expand Laserfiche channel in the region and during the show we succeeded to sign new partnership agreements in some countries especially in North Africa.” Nizar added.  

Another topic of great discussion at GITEX 2017 was the implementation of VAT in the GCC region especially in UAE on the 1st of January 2018, and how afterwards VAT will be implemented in other GCC countries like KSA. Laserfiche works with companies around the world with their accounts payable and payment processes. Our solutions would be able to assist companies with managing their accounting processes they go through the period of GST implementation. They also help organizations organize and sort their contracts, this would enable companies to locate those vendors with whom they will need to renegotiate terms.
