Intrasoft International to open Kenya office, launch core banking solution


European IT solutions company, Intrasoft International, will tomorrow announce its official entry into the East African market and opening of the regional office in Kenya. The briefing will focus on INTRASOFT International’s regional footprint plan and launch of its flagship core banking solution in Kenya.

INTRASOFT International’s commitment to Customs modernisation in Africa and globally was underlined at this year’s World Customs Organisation (WCO) IT Conference in Dakar, Senegal, beginning of June, which attracted most of the international customs and trade community (organizations, technical companies, integrators, funding groups).

INTRASOFT’s new generation of Trade Facilitation products (Customs Declaration Management System and Single Window platforms), along with its proven ability to assist countries in road-mapping their modernization projects, formed the core of the company’s presence in the conference.

Particular attention was paid to how these additions to INTRASOFT’s portfolio can add value to the much needed acceleration in infrastructure building and trade handling capacity growth in Africa and elsewhere. The dual role of INTRASOFT as consultant and solution vendor can help Customs Administrations of African countries run Trade Facilitation projects effectively and efficiently.

The company’s unique combination of Customs IT system expertise and regional integration successes in Europe and Asia fully aligned with this year’s event theme “DIGITAL CUSTOMS – Accelerating Connectivity & Bridging the Divide.”

As a proven, over the past 20 years, EU expert, INTRASOFT is in a unique position to address the need for faster implementation, while providing countries with best of breed technologies from leading vendors. The company’s strength in building solutions ready to support cross-country interoperability was received very positively during a speech by Mr. Panagiotis Menoudakis, Head of Pre-Sales & Solutions Management, Customs & Trade at INTRASOFT International.

“Our clients’ trust in INTRASOFT’s skills and competencies is our greatest asset as we fulfil our global expansion strategy in the Customs market. Already a renowned global player, INTRASOFT underlined its key role at the WCO IT Conference this year and demonstrated its commitment to the continuous evolution of its rich portfolio of products and solutions” said Alexandros Manos, Chief Executive Officer, INTRASOFT International.
