Microsoft technology partner Altron Karabina has announced a new partnership with cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM) provider Host Analytics, becoming the company’s first EPM reseller in South Africa.
Under the terms of the agreement, Altron Karabina will licence, implement, train, and support Host Analytics solutions in the South African market.
“As the leading provider of connected financial planning and close solutions, Host Analytics gives finance teams and CFOs the foundation to transform their planning, consolidation, modelling, reporting, and analytical processes,” said Paul Morgan, Business Unit Lead: Data, Planning and Analytics at Altron Karabina.
“This all aligns closely with our own vision of offering our customers an integrated approach using Microsoft technologies.”
Host Analytics applications help accelerate and automate financial processes as organisations evolve their business. The company’s platform has been named a leader in two Gartner reports in just the past year – the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close Solutions and the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions. This is the second consecutive year the company was named a leader in both reports. Host Analytics was also named this year by Nucleus Research to the ‘leaders’ quadrant of its CPM Technology Value Matrix.
“We are excited to expand our relationship with Altron Karabina to help customers in the fast-growing South African market,” said John Head, Vice President of Enterprise Sales and Global Channels at Host Analytics.
“They are experts at transforming companies into modern finance organisations and by using the Host Analytics platform, our joint customers will be able to capitalise on more growth opportunities.”
The results-driven approach of Host Analytics reflects how Altron Karabina works with their own customers by going beyond just software to offer services and solutions that deliver proven business return.
“Host Analytics will provide further impetus for growth as organisations look to migrate their mission-critical EPM solutions to the cloud,” added Morgan.
“And its ease of integration and connectivity will let customers access and manage all their financial data and processes within a single application.”
