Yunano and South Africa’s TSS, have joined forces to provide cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions from Asia Pacific for Africa’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and multinationals that enable businesses to reduce IT costs and improve operational efficiency.
The partnership between Yunano – a joint venture between IT services company Atos and Asia business software developer Yonyou – and TSS allows the South African firm to distribute Yunano’s ERP and CRM solutions on the African market. TSS, a black-owned company founded in 1997 to focus on IT services, has around 620 employees and supports 50,000 devices in the region.
Through the partnership with TSS, Yunano will extend its global footprint on the African landscape. Both partners believe “the African market promises great potential for growth”. Yunano’s experience of servicing over 1.5m customers will be leveraged to provide solutions that meet the needs of clients across varied business sectors.
“Through cloud computing as the next wave of technological advancement, Yunano’s partnership with TSS will be well positioned to give customers a competitive edge over their peers,” add the partners. “All these benefits can be realised by customers at a fraction of the cost and effort of traditional ERP and CRM products.”
