KalSoft (Pvt) Ltd, the leading IT solution provider
in Pakistan and Microsoft's elite business partner in the MEA region,
has recently been accorded with the prestigious awards for achieving
excellence in the cutting edge information technology.
Khurram Kalia, the youthful chief of KalSoft
received the "Best ISV Partner" award presented at the
opening ceremony of Microsoft's Pakistan Developers Conference (PDC)
Speaking on the occasion, Khurram Kalia, CTO of
KalSoft, said: "We are delighted that Microsoft has recognized
KalSoft as an elite partner. KalSoft enjoys a very strong relationship
with Microsoft and this latest attainment will only strengthen the
relationship between the two companies. This milestone achievement
will allow us to remain ahead of the competition and will aid us to
provide even better services to our customers".
The Microsoft integrated e-business solutions
competency was awarded last week to KalSoft for demonstrating strong
knowledge and experience in the deployment of Internet based solutions
and infrastructure solutions using Microsoft technologies. KalSoft
also has Microsoft competencies in Learning Solutions, Business
Solutions and Information Worker Productivity Solution. This
achievement of a competency further demonstrates KalSoft's profound
abilities and commitment to the Microsoft platform.
The third award was presented to KalSoft at the
Microsoft Summit held in Swat a few days ago. The summit brought
together the Chief Executives for the Microsoft partners of the region
to discuss various performance and strategic issues. The summit also
saw the start of the annual "Circle of Excellence Award",
established to award those partners and their Chief Executives who
have shown a high degree of excellence. KalSoft received the award in
the ISV category, whilst Khurram Kalia, Kalsoft's CTO, was awarded for
his individual performance by leading the company with clear vision
and judgment that has been the essence of KalSoft success, holding a
position in the industry that other ISVs have strived for.
KalSoft (Pvt) Ltd. has also been awarded with Gold
Partner Status, making them a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner,
officially announced on the last day of the KalSoft fiscal year, June
30th. This most prestigious high level award was achieved as a result
of KalSoft's proven competence in designing and providing solutions
based on leading edge Microsoft technologies.
These successions of awards and the unique
prestigious status no doubt prove KalSoft's strong relationship with
Microsoft and its determination to be the number one ISV in the
region, paving the way for others to follow.
KALSOFT DEVELOPS WWW.IIN.COM.PK
SMEDA (The Small and Medium Enterprise Development
Authority) took the bold initiative of developing the first ever B2B
portal in Pakistan, designed and developed by KalSoft (Pvt) Ltd
specifically to promote and support the SME (small and medium
enterprises) sector of Pakistan. SMEDA approached KalSoft, the leading
IT solution providers in Pakistan, to translate their vision into
reality. KalSoft proposed a solution entirely built on
state-of-the-art Microsoft technologies comprising the highly
innovative .NET framework, SQL Server 2000 and Service Oriented
Architecture. The project was awarded to KalSoft because of its proven
competence on the Microsoft platform and KalSoft in return
successfully designed and developed the portal (www.iin.com.pk) that
was officially launched on 25th June 2005.
KalSoft team of consultants worked in close
coordination with SMEDA personnel from the inception of the project to
final deployment to make IIN a success. As this was a first of its
kind undertaking by SMEDA, infrastructure and technological challenges
were faced and eventually overcome by KalSoft and SMEDA. This project
is a strategic win for both KalSoft and Microsoft as the portal acts
as a role model for many small businesses and the Government of
Pakistan in particular, as the government is also in the process of
implementing e-government services.
The coveted Gold Partner status has been achieved
as a result of KaSoft's proven competence in designing and providing
solutions based on leading edge Microsoft platforms, as this
certification is granted only to elite Microsoft Business Partners.
This latest and most prestigious high level
achievements follows last week's Microsoft awards for "most
promising ISV" and the achievement of the integrated e-business
solutions competency by KalSoft. It has also acquired volume licensing
re-sellers, IOP and premium systems awards for ISV, while Khurram
Kalia, CTO of KalSoft, was honored on individual high performance.
Ali Junejo, BDM of KalSoft Consulting Services said
this meant a very promising and successful beginning for new fiscal
year and hoped they would strive to maintain the highest status as
reflected by Microsoft.
