As they usually do, representatives of the Penki kontinentai group’s BS/2 company will be attending the fair. On several occasions already, specialists from the company have presented their solutions at KITEL and have thus expanded the ranks of their clientele in the local market and have formed partnership links with other companies. Quite a few Kazakh financial companies are already using .iQ group products created by the BS/2 company to optimise business processes. At the KITEL 2012 Forum and exhibition, the BS/2 company’s delegation will arrange several business meetings, they will visit their partner’s stands and they will acquaint themselves with banking sector solutions.
“This will be the fifth time that the BS/2 company takes part in this function. This year we will try to analyse the market and to acquaint ourselves with new IT solutions. In addition, we plan to meet with our regular clients and partners. This is a great opportunity to spend some time together and to discuss various issues of concern. Our company’s specialists will be acquainting participants at the KITEL Forum not only with the already well-accepted ProCash 2ххх product line, but also with the new CINEO range. This Wincor Nixdorf equipment stands out for its universal cassettes, its extra strong anti-tampering system and its ergonomic design”, says BS/2 Kazakhstan Manager Kairat Bekbaganbetov.
According to this specialist, in September 2012 BS/2 company is planning to organise a conference for Kazakh, Uzbek and Kirgiz banks and financial institutions. At that conference, BS/2 experts will present new self-service optimisation software and will share their experience of working quite a few years in the banking technology market.
Kitel is quite rightly regarded as the most prestigious in the field of telecommunications and IT in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. Last year 44 companies from eight countries presented their products at the KITEL conference/show. It is expected that this year ten countries will take part, and more than 2,000 specialists are expected to visit the exhibition.
