ICCM Solutions set to Dominate African Market with Strategic Appointment
10 June 2011 – ICCM Solutions has today announced it is to strengthen its foothold in the African market through the opening of an office in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the appointment of a regional head to drive forward the company’s vigorous growth plans.
Brad Fraser has joined ICCM as Director of Africa and Indian Ocean Islands, and brings extensive experience of initiating and expanding IT ventures into Africa: particularly in Mauritius, Mozambique, Kenya, Zambia, Botswana and Tanzania.
It was while Fraser was Financial Director at Bytes Systems Integration that he first came into contact with ICCM. There he spearheaded a project for Bytes to work with ICCM to deploy a progressive IT service management strategy.
Fraser comments, “Having already worked with ICCM through a customer perspective, I am only too aware of the value-add that ICCM’s e-Service Desk provides through streamlining process and technology, resulting in close alignment to business needs and significantly reducing deployment time.
“My move to ICCM reflects the opportunity I believe the solution brings to the African market, through the provision of revolutionary software and superior services to organisations aspiring to achieve Best Practice Service Management. ICCM’s scalable e-Service Desk with an enterprise Business Process Management (BPM) platform enables service management capabilities across all industries and business functions. The ITIL standards ensure that businesses don’t have to reinvent the wheel when implementing the solution.
“With 15 years of experience in the IT industry and a strong business process focus, I understand that this is a service management methodology purchase – it’s not about the technology.”
James Gay, CEO of ICCM Solutions says, “ICCM already has an established presence in South Africa though our work with organisations including Bytes and law firm Webber Wenztel. This market presents a key growth opportunity for ICCM and the strategic appointment of Brad will be pivotal in realising this growth. Brad not only has extensive experience and knowledge of the IT industry, but he is also very familiar with the nuances and understands the intricacies of doing business within different African markets. The appointment, along with the establishment of an ICCM African office, will help strengthen the business’ already proven track record in South Africa, Botswana and the UK.”
