A newly innovated Information and Communication Technology (ICT) business solution hub has entered the market.

ACTON Fiji Limited, Advanced Cloud Technologies, located at 30 Desvoux Road in Suva, believes they serve better world class business solution to Fijian businesses with transformation, innovation and deliverance.

Formed in July 2017 with some 14 employees today, Acton is also 100 per cent employee owned and operated.

The business was officially launched at Tanoa Plaza last Wednesday night.

Director and solution delivery manager Sanjesh Kumar said the prime focus of the company was to bring world class business solutions to Fijian businesses without the overhead costs of a traditional business solution.

“We give customers choices with our suite of business products that spans multiple industries and they can be rest assured knowing their needs are in capable hands,” Mr Kumar said.

“With our strategic partnership with one of Australia’s leading business solutions provider, MicroChannel Services, the company offers an unmatched product range, on top of superior technical and functional consulting expertise.

“This alliance was formed to bring cutting edge with professional solutions and services with a uniquely Fijian touch and main objective we are here to assist businesses to succeed.

“We do financial services and business solutions provider, provide smart, intelligent financial solutions as well as business solutions to small to medium and large companies.”

It all  started over a drink one afternoon in the balcony of Mr Kumar’s flat.

“While having a discussion with a friend on what Fiji really needs in terms of ICT business solution, we came to a conclusion that it had to be done. After a few days, the company was formed.”

Mr Kumar is searching for local customers to start off with, which is his major challenge now, however, he said the hard work had paid off.

“We still have a long way to go in terms of establishing ourselves as the market leader, but this has been overcome to some extent by our strategic partnership with MicroChannel, the Australian based company,” he said.

“Since we are a business solutions company, specific skills are required for our products. “The challenges of finding people with those skills are major ones.

“Through our internally designed graduate internship programme, we are recruiting university graduates and furnishing them with the required skills.”

He said there was a need to expand partnerships in the Australia Pacific region, promote and champion the adoption of cloud technologies and cloud-based business solutions and expand our services and products to the South Pacific market.

Currently, he said Acton has 15 staff members and was expecting six more people to join the company next month.

“The company’s product range include: Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Microsoft Dynamics AX, CRM, LS Retail SAP B1, Sage300, Salesforce, and Accellos Warehouse Management System.”

Officiating the event, ANZ Fiji country head Saud Minam said Fiji had 94 per cent of literate population with the world best class of internet user.

“With a strong education background people are able to have access to a computer anytime of the day,” he said.

He believes Fiji has a strong economy, which enables companies to invest and provide services to its customers; more importantly it was a source of employment to locals.

“It is important to engage with technology these days because for a person to have access in this world, he or she needs to know how to use a computer and I am glad that Fiji, as a nation, is among them,” Mr Minam said.
