Established in 2003, Genious Communications has five offices in Morocco and is looking to expand in to other Arabic-speaking countries. BaseKit says GeniousKit is the first launch of its kind in North Africa, which could help Genious expand its customer base.
“This is a tremendous partnership for us, not only because it marks an expansion into a new country but also that we are developing an Arabic version with Genious that will allow all businesses in the region to build their own websites really cost-effectively and with ease,” David Meers, VP of sales, BaseKit said in a statement.
BaseKit is offered in several languages already, including Portuguese and Spanish.
BaseKit works with more than 40 web hosts, telecommunications firms and technology providers worldwide to deilver its website builder. Recently, it partnered with Host Europe, HostGator and Netcetera. Most web hosting providers offer website builders as a free value-add to their hosting plans.
“We chose to partner with BaseKit as its platform is streets ahead of the competition,” Hamza Aboulfeth, CEO and founder of Genious Communications said in a statement. “We feel privileged to be the first to offer this type of solution in North Africa and are excited to also be developing an Arabic version of the platform with BaseKit which we hope to roll out later in the year.”
BaseKit features a WYSIWYG interface for beginners, but also provides tools that allow for HTML and CSS editing. It incorporates social media features, more than 100 customizable templates, and ecommerce capabilities.
