Mupota Muchelemba, Managing Director of Bluekey Seidor Zambia
The fastest growing SAP Business One partner in Africa, Bluekey Seidor recently acquired Cirotech in Zambia, extending the company’s reach with an office in Lusaka. Cirotech has been helping small and medium-sized Zambian businesses achieve operational excellence by implementing and supporting appropriate software technology since 2013.
“The decision to expand our presence into Zambia was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Pedro Lopes, Managing Director of Bluekey Seidor South Africa. “Lusaka is home to over 1,5 million people, and is one of the fastest growing cities in Zambia. We have the opportunity to further expand our staffing and capabilities in our SAP Business One professional services and customer support departments, as well as increase our ability to service current and future customers.”
Bluekey Seidor Zambia has an ambitious growth plan that includes the recruitment of skilled professionals immediately, and over the next few years. All the former Cirotech staff are being kept on and more sales agents are already being recruited.
Mupota Muchelemba has been appointed as the Managing Director of Bluekey Seidor Zambia from 1 August 2017. Muchelemba is an IT visionary and entrepreneur who has over 14 years consulting experience in Zambia, South Africa and Australia. He has managed various project teams across the globe for large companies such as Travelex, Fresenius Medical Care, Adstream, Copperbelt University, Bidvest Group and Grindrod Logistics. Muchelemba has specialized in leading technology start-ups from inception to a growth stage as well as business development, strategy and mentoring teams, which makes him well suited to lead the Zambian expansion.
Growing from Cirotech’s established client base, which includes a strong niche in the transportation and logistics sector, Bluekey Seidor Zambia promises to help more companies in Zambia and the SADC region achieve increased efficiency, greater profit margins, greater organizational control, increased customer satisfaction and the ability to enhance their decision making through real-time insights and reporting; bringing organisational wealth to the fore.
“This development is testament to our commitment to long term local support for existing and future customers. Bluekey Seidor Zambia customers can count on services from the most experienced SAP consulting resources in Africa”, concluded Muchelemba.
