Cloudworks targets rapid growth in Middle East with increased uptake of Salesforce technology
Souphien Akhrif, Managing Director, cloudworks.
cloudworks, a cloud consulting company and the largest Salesforce gold partner based in UAE, has surpassed expectations by achieving a 188% increase in revenue growth last year.
The company is also investing in enhancing its regional presence and gearing up to be the largest Salesforce Platinum Partner in 2018.
Souphien Akhrif, Managing Director, cloudworks, said: “Salesforce has evolved from being merely a customer relationship management centred company, to becoming the ‘backbone’ that supports a lot of businesses, with features for critical business processes like lead management, sales data and marketing automation, to name a few.
“The problem, however, is in realising the full potential of Salesforce. When organisations try implementing the platform on their own, it’s not just a time consuming and difficult task but also counter-productive.
“This is why in 2015, we started cloudworks and since then we’ve been assembling a team of certified and highly skilled Salesforce experts with years of experience working on successful Salesforce projects with businesses in different industries across UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
“With our design and customisation, implementation and training capabilities, we enable customers to use Salesforce optimally, saving a huge amount of time and effort, and giving them the freedom to focus on their business priorities and generate more revenue.”
cloudworks is currently investing in increasing its staff count and has just moved to a new, larger office premise in Dubai.
With a representative office in Saudi Arabia, cloudworks plans to expand its team and establish a larger footprint in the Kingdom in view of the country’s drive towards digital transformation and maturity of the market in terms of acceptance of cloud computing. The company is already working with a few customers in Saudi like the Al Faisaliah Group and Abdul Latif Jameel and is making concerted efforts to position itself as a trusted partner to companies in Saudi.
The company has over 50 customers across the GCC and has completed over 95 successful Salesforce projects.
