BancTec and Al-Falak Electronic Equipment & Supplies Co. Establish Distribution Relationship
LONDON, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ — BancTec, Inc., a global provider of advanced, high-volume, document and payment processing solutions and services, has signed a distribution agreement with Saudi-based Al-Falak Electronic Equipment & Supplies Co., a leading IT and communications solution provider. The agreement covers distribution in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates of BancTec’s highly acclaimed IntelliScanÃ‚® and E-Series high-speed document scanning and sorting transports.
“Al-Falak has nearly three decades of successful experience delivering IT and communications solutions throughout the Middle East, and will be a strong partner as we seek to expand our presence in those markets,” said Darren Riley, sales manager, EMEA Emerging Markets, BancTec. “Their strong market knowledge and extensive relationships, in concert with our enterprise-scale solutions, will deliver significant benefits for large organizations throughout the region.”
“BancTec is a well-established provider of solutions that enhance, and reduce the cost of, document and payment processing operations,” said Basel Humaidah, General Manager, Al-Falak. “We look forward to partnering with BancTec to extend the range of solutions we offer and further our involvement in the massive technology adoption initiatives being implemented by both government and the private sector in the region.”
While oil is still the largest and most important industry in the regional economy, governments there have enacted measures in recent years to expand private sector growth in other areas–notably power generation, telecommunications, natural gas exploration, and petrochemicals–in order to decrease dependence on oil exports and increase employment options for the growing population.
Al-Falak has consistently been ranked by Arab News as one of the top 100 companies in Saudi Arabia for four consecutive years. The 29-year-old company delivers enterprise IT solutions through a network of offices and trained technical personnel throughout the Middle East. Al-Falak’s portfolio of business partnerships includes leading solution and software providers, hardware and consumable manufacturers, business consultancy firms and implementation specialists.
