About Us

Who We Are?


Founded in 1993, Premier Systems (Pvt.) Limited is one of the leading veteran ICT infrastructure provider in Pakistan. Our claim to fame is not merely system integration, but we are also constantly architecting innovative ICT solutions across all our client’s needs from network convergence, five Ss cloud computing, failover plan and power system audit and solutions to break-fix and managed services.

With enormous multivendor knowledge on the back of technology alliances with the global ICT bellwethers, including Microsoft, HP, Cisco and Juniper, the company has handled multiple projects of small, mid-sized and large customers belonging to various industries, such as Telecom, Banking, Oil and Gas and Defence in Pakistan, UAE and Afghanistan. Gradually making inroads into the African market, we have successfully delivered data centre consultancy, power system audit and HP Blade and storage in the world’s second largest continent.

Premier Systems has a team of seasoned engineers on its roster and a number of committed sub-contractors for designing, building, management, compliance, testing, production and support of end-to-end solutions. We heavily invest in re-certification of our team members.

We started our journey when even carrying a small data required big storage, a microprocessor had an internal clock speed of 40 to 80MHz, networks were run on a maximum of 10MB speed, and a telephone line was connected to the noisy dial-up modem that created a slow internet connection.

We have witnessed a score of global mergers over the last two decades and we are growing because we keep ourselves abreast with the latest market trends.
Lesson Learnt: Blocking your mind to new technology forays sounds the death knell for an ICT business.
We diversified our business to automobile imports in 2006 and, we are continuously exploring new business opportunities.

Test Case – System Integration

Remember, overlooking the importance of local support in a project is tantamount to a failed mission. If a system integrator is not familiar with local ICT ecology and regulatory environment then a project reels under cost overrun and irksome delays and, a client cannot bear up with a downtime while migrating to and collaborating with a new environment.

Our IT team keeps in mind a customer’s return on investment while helping him identify his business needs and predetermining operational lifetime of a proposed solution.

Cost-effectiveness is a core of our solution. However, since we know that low-cost SI is disastrous we strongly recommend replacement whenever there is a need.

Premier’s handover is not just a ribbon-cutting ceremony. We remain engaged in housekeeping training, troubleshooting and handling other operational issues.
Mind You: System integration is a means to an end, not an end itself. So, Premier’s team is there from start till end – when you need technology POC, deployment and post-handover services.

The Founder

Mr. Pervez Abbasi, a man of vision, direction and achievements throughout his life, graduated from Govt. College Lahore and attended numerous courses in Finance and Marketing from reputable local and international institutions.

Mr. Abbasi started his career during early 60s with Shaw Wallace Pakistan (R. G. Shaw UK Limited) in shipping, trade & finance and rose to a senior management position during his nine years association with them. In 1969, Mr. Abbasi moved to the oil marketing industry by joining Caltex Oil Pakistan Limited where he held among other positions the designation of Marketing Manager for Pakistan and Afghanistan during his 10 years with the Company. The unique combination of nearly twenty years of international expertise in shipping, oil marketing and technology industry, led him to join the family business which was created by his father I.A. Abbasi. Mr. Parvez Abbasi through his experience over the next years was the principle architect of modernizing the port / shipping container terminals at Karachi Port.

Premier Systems (Pvt.) Ltd. is one of those companies he founded on that expertise. Further, due to past experience in the oil marketing business, Mr. Abbasi seized the opportunity to launch the first private crude oil refinery at Hub Baluchistan, which today is the largest refinery operational in Pakistan.

With a lively, active and leadership personality, Mr. Abbasi remained associated as a member of prestigious institutions such as, the Institute of Chartered Ship Brokers and the Institute of Transport, etc. He also served as Member Managing Committee and Senior Vice Chairman of FPCCI, Vice Chairman and Chairman of Pakistan Ships Agents Association, Secretary General and Executive Vice President National Rifle Association of Pakistan, Secretary General South Asia Shooting Confederation and Member Executive Committee of Commonwealth Shooting Federation. He was appointed A Class Jury Judge Shooting by the International Olympic Association, sole record so far for Pakistan.

He left for his eternal abode on the 25th of July 2006. We pray to Almighty Allah to grant him an exalted place in His heavenly abode and to allow us to fulfill his dreams and the vision he had for the Company.
