Esri Northeast Africa Established

Stemming from Esri's commitment to meet the needs and demands of the GIS community in the Middle East and North Africa, Esri announces the establishment of Esri Northeast Africa (Esri NEA). The newly formed company will allow the expansion of Esri's software distribution into Chad, Libya, and Sudan and will provide the support and services required by Esri's ever-growing customer base in the region.

According to Esri president Jack Dangermond, "Esri Northeast Africa will be able to better serve our existing customer base with confident corporate support. The new company will act as a center of excellence for Esri in the region and will be able to provide timely support and premium services for our regional customers."

"The establishment of Esri NEA is a major milestone for our GIS business," declares Ahmed Abdel Aal, managing director of Esri NEA. "It allows us to significantly leverage our presence throughout the region to better serve our customers and spread GIS awareness."

Tarek Wahby, Esri NEA's general manager, says, "The Esri designation reflects the growth of the GIS market throughout the region. On one hand, we will be able to expand the GIS industry, and on the other hand, the designation will strongly motivate our team to surpass our customers' high expectations."

Esri NEA is a free zone company located in Egypt with business that is spread across the region. Esri NEA was established due to the success that was demonstrated by Quality Standards Information Technology (QSIT), Esri's distributor in Egypt and the surrounding region since 1994. Esri NEA's vision is to be a leader in providing state-of-the-art GIS solutions to governments and businesses in the Middle East and North Africa.
