Rwanda: Cloud-Based Business Software Now Available in Rwanda

Cumulus, a comprehensive cloud-based software package for SMEs, is now also available in Rwanda. Developed by SAP, the world's leading business solutions provider from Germany, the package is supplied in East Africa by Twenty Third Century Systems, which also has offices in Rwanda.

The software allows businesspeople to follow up on all aspects of their enterprise, from inventory and stock management, supply chain, human resource management, customer relations etc. It also offers business analytics options. The program is customizable to individual companies' needs.

Cumulus is the cloud-based application of SAP's Business One package, which means that there is no need to invest in heavy servers to run the software and store the data, since this is done at secure data centers. It also has the advantage that the data are accessible from anywhere and on any device, without it being necessary to install the software, and that all users work with the same, up-to-date information.

The Cumulus package targets particularly SMEs and can cater for up to 200 users. Twenty Third Century Systems also offers SAP software called ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) which is designed for bigger organizations such as large enterprises and public institutions.

Cumulus is offered starting at a monthly subscription fee of US$ 125 per user, while installation and customization to the company costs about the equivalent of three months of subscription for the total number of users of the company.

More details can be found on the website of Twenty Third Century Systems.
