Feenics Inc., a provider of the access control as a service (ACaaS) Keep by Feenics cloud-hosted platform, continues to expand its reach globally, adding an office and representative in Beirut, Lebanon.
Nancy Abou Eid, who holds a Master’s Degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering will lead the new Middle East location in Beirut and target additional growing areas including Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
Educating resellers about Keep
With the addition of this office, Feenics now has an established presence in North America, Latin America and the Middle EastAbou Eid was one of the first employees of Feenics and an architect of the original Keep by Feenics solution. Her focus will be on educating value-added resellers, consultants and users on the advantages of the scalability, flexibility and advanced security available in the cloud-based ACaaS solution. With the addition of this office, Feenics now has an established presence in North America, Latin America and the Middle East.
“I’m excited to be an integral part of the Feenics team again,” Abou Eid said. “The Keep solution has progressed dramatically since the company’s start up in 2010, as has acceptance of the cloud for safe and secure access control management. It’s where the future is going and the Middle East region is receptive and open to the advantages of cloud computing.”
As the cloud has become a more comfortable environment for North American users and with many of those customers managing global locations, Feenics can now more fully support additional customers in the Middle East.
Expanding footprint to support customers
Abou Eid will handle sales and regional technical support for Feenics from the Beirut office“We have many global customers and that requires us to expand our footprint,” said Sam Shalaby, Chief Executive Officer of Feenics. “Nancy hit the ground running and she’s out to make things happen. She was one of our engineers and we had kept the lines of communication open, so when the opportunity presented itself, she was perfect for the role.
“Being successful is about having the right people so you can expand properly. It was an easy transition and opportunity for us to open an office in the Middle East. The location will be a natural extension of our efforts in our home office.”
Abou Eid will handle sales and regional technical support for Feenics from the Beirut office, which is also staffed with two technicians and a software engineer.
