DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 16th September 2012: Given the upswing in the IT software development market in the Middle East and the tremendous success the company has seen so far,SCOPE Group, a leading value added distributor, technology solutions provider and system integrator in the Middle East, now intends to further expand its DataCell division.
“There has been a great reception to our software development services and since it’s inception, the DataCell division has grown to become a key business driver for our organization as it allows us to offer our customers the entire gamut of IT services. DataCell currently has a significant line-up of projects in the pipeline, which is why we intend to extend our capabilities by recruiting more developers to the division,” says Mr. Fadi AbuEkab, CEO, SCOPE.
“The DataCell division is focused on business opportunities in UAE, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, Bahrain, Egypt and North African counties. We are in the process of hiring more employees in sales and pre-sales positions as we plan to extend our reach to new markets and sectors,” Mr. AbuEkab continues.
DataCell, the software development arm of the Group with a current staff strength of 12 employees, was launched three years ago and has successfully implemented solutions ranging from portal and intranet, enterprise applications and fax server applications to workflow and specialized ERP solutions for a number of prominent government entities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as well as private enterprises and commercial sector.

Going beyond the specialized software development skill set, the DataCell division’s capabilities extend to professional project management along with dedicated after sales support and systems warranty. The services offered by the DataCell division are supplemented by pre-sales and consultancy of the systems integration division, Scope Information Systems, as well as the delivery of hardware related services through the long standing expertise of Scope Middle East, the value added distribution arm of the company.
