Arabic language software specialist Harf Information Technology is proudly displaying a wide range of software solutions at this week’s GITEX exhibition.

“We have been looking forward to participating in GITEX Saudi once again”, stated Islam Fadl, sales manager of Harf Information Technology. “We are hoping to increase the awareness of our products in the region and make a number of new partnerships as well during the event,” he added.

In particular, the Riyadh-based firm, which boasts branches in Cairo, Egypt and Turkey, will be displaying its Holy Quran software suite, which now supports nine languages including Turkish.

Harf recently signed a significant new deal with the Holy Quran Memorisation International Organisation to develop a website designed to help adults and children memorise the Quran. According to Harf, the site has an easy-to-use interface and will offer distance learning to users around the globe.

The software firm also recently struck a deal with Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Education to develop a new e-training programme for teachers. The portal will be based on Harf’s own Taradus management system, which was unveiled at GITEX Saudi Arabia last year.

According to Harf, the new portal will contain a host of interactive training courses - in English and Arabic - and will serve more than half a million teachers in the Kingdom. Among its many other offerings, Harf also develops applications for culture and entertainment, including cartoons, interactive games and Islamic songs.

The firm has also developed e-government solutions and services such as business engineering and re-engineering, workflow and document management solutions, identity management and provisioning solutions. With such a wide variety of applications on offer, Harf believes that it has something for everyone and expects to generate significant foot traffic to its show booth during the next five days. With demand for software growing in KSA, Harf believes that it has a bright future.
