One dedicated team.
Elytis is a prime Microsoft distributor with a unique capability in the African region for licensing and for market knowhow – and bringing to its partners such expertise in French-speaking and English-speaking territories.
The experience of our team in dealing with a diversity of cultures across regions and the African continent provides a clear advantage in understanding and responding to the needs of our reseller’s markets and of their clients.
This dedicated team and its seven experts provide unequalled advice and assistance, as well as quick “on time” quotes, to serve a large network of Microsoft product and service providers in Mauritius, other Indian Ocean islands, French Pacific territories, and over 40 countries in mainland Africa.
We are here to help resellers across all those countries to develop their market’s knowhow of Microsoft products and solutions and to boost their sales. Specialised sales executives manage our partners’ needs in defined groups of countries and assist in bringing more value to their offerings of the Microsoft range of products and services.
In this regard, our thorough knowledge of Licensing for Microsoft solutions is a key asset of Elytis, which brings a clear edge to our resellers. We also consider resellers as true partners we help them to devise the best, tailor-made quotes, in responding to complex requests for proposals for any territory.
Our senior manager’s tops the experience of our sales and support team. With 14 years of sales and product management practice at Elytis, he is a Microsoft expert by profession and by dedication.
IT security as well as data protection and management are essential for all organisations to thrive in a data-laden environment that comprises multiple risks for all key activities – operational, commercial and financial. The Symantec and Veritas products bring the right solutions to curtail risks and to efficiently manage data.
Elytis has the right expertise to foster and support resellers’ efforts in building the most relevant and cost efficient solutions using the Symantec and Veritas cybersecurity and data management products.
We have a definite edge in having a bilingual (French-speaking and English-speaking) team that is fully dedicated to the range of Symantec and Veritas solutions, with the right mix of technological expertise.
Our specialists work only with and for those two leading brands, bringing all their attention and knowhow to advising and supporting our resellers and their clients. We provide quick and clear information in building the most adequate quotes and all five members of the team are certified in the Symantec and Veritas range of products.
In addition to serving the Mauritian market, we constantly assist our partners in other islands of the Indian Ocean region and in 11 countries of the SADC region (excluding South Africa).
The capabilities of Elytis regarding the Symantec and the Veritas offering greatly benefit from our BD Manager’s competencies and track record. With over 20 years of experience in the IT field, he has worked as a programmer, systems administrator, network engineer, product manager and technical manager, for a conglomerate, a leading IT reseller and now for Elytis.
Hence, he has extensive insights into the needs and expectations of resellers and of customers, enabling relationships based on a thorough understanding of our partners’ challenges.
The pre-sales team of Elytis brings valuable input to our partners and clients in the Indian Ocean/Africa region. The team’s objective is to gauge the markets, identify business opportunities, analyse technical and operational requirements and, thereafter, propose the best technology solution.
The pre-sales specialists are hence the first contact persons from Elytis to structure the partners’ and clients’ requirements, to align their needs with the accurate technology.
Our sales experts are specialised in Microsoft, Mobile Iron, Symantec, Veritas and the leading hardware brands we represent. They support in generating the finest commercial proposals. Transfer of information and follow-up is seamless from the pre-sales service to the specialised software and hardware teams.

The pre-sales team has a rich experience from different industry verticals and the personnel's combined expertise brings significant technology and market insights to the channel. The team has three members for now and this number will grow to four within the next months.
Partners are key to us. The team endeavours to empower our partners and clients through training to keep them up to date with the latest technology solutions for the brands we represent in order to deliver value.
