Thanks to technology such as TeamViewer and my Google-friendly website, I have just landed one of my single biggest Pastel software orders and ongoing support client, based in the UAE!
The client is a company based in the UAE and run by South Africans who have chosen to move from their inherited accounting system (Microsoft Dynamics) to a home-grown South African system, and supported by a South African.
They have ordered Pastel Partner, with various add-on modules, including multi-user licences, Pastel Payroll, ACT (a CRM system), Evolution's Fixed Assets system, together with Pastel Cover and one of my Support Bundles.
I have been tasked to migrate all their data from their existing system to the new system, design customised reports, train their staff and provide ongoing support - all without leaving the comfort of my home (or wherever I find my laptop)!
The money has been deposited into my bank account, so all is good so far!
