Business Transformation Simplified with Premier Systems

Who We are?

Premier Systems (Pvt.) Ltd was founded in 1993, and since then has been providing solutions that are the bedrock of system integration and ICT infrastructure to various customers in Pakistan.

We provide sustainable digital transformation to our clients, so they have a strategic technological competitive advantage to survive through this era of digitalization. We are constantly working to equip you with cutting edge innovations in Optimal ICT Infrastructure, Any ware Operations, Organization Continuity and Core Modernization.

Moreover, keeping up with our promise to bring only the best and premium products to Pakistan, we signed a contract with Audi AG in 2005 to be appointed as their sole Importer and dealer in Pakistan. In 2017, this partnership went global after which we also acquired the sole Importer status in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

In 2018, Premier Motors (Pvt.) Emerged as a result of the establishment of an assembly contract with Volkswagen AG which aimed to build an assembly line in Karachi.

At Premier Systems, we foresee the world trends and forecast the technological gaps they may create. Therefore, it’s no surprise that we anticipated the need for an online Payment gateway and founded the Avanza Premier Payment Services (Pvt.) Limited in 2018. This joint venture with Avanza Solutions launched Pakistan’s Fastest Payment Gateway – APPS. We operate with a philosophy to build groundbreaking payment solutions that provide an online payment experience with diverse means of payment acceptance on a single checkout.

In 2020, we incorporated Premier Code (Pvt.) Limited as a joint venture with JSR Telecommunications. This initiative is reflective of our value of investing back in Pakistan. Our aim is to become the first Pakistani brand to design and develop smartphones locally.

After almost two decades of international expertise in the shipping, oil marketing and technology industry, Mr. Abbasi joined the family business established by his father – I.A. Abbasi, who was the principal architect of modernizing the port and shipping container terminals at Karachi Port.

In addition to launching Premier Systems (Pvt.) Ltd., Mr. Abbasi also seized the opportunity to launch the first private crude oil refinery at Hub Baluchistan – which is the largest refinery operational in Pakistan till date.

Owing to his lively, active and inspirational 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 the Member Managing Committee & Senior Vice Chairman at FPCCI; Vice Chairman & Chairman at Pakistan Ships Agents Association; Secretary General & Executive Vice President at National Rifle Association of Pakistan; and Secretary General South Asia Shooting Confederation & Member Executive Committee of Commonwealth Shooting Federation.
