Arab Sea Co Ltd to launch software business in Kerala

KOCHI: Saudi Arabia-based information technology firm Arab Sea Company Limited has decided to launch its software business in Kerala as part of India operations in the second week of August.

“Kochi-based Boon Innovations Limited has been appointed as the regional distributor for Kerala and through Boon we are going to promote our SMACC software in Kerala,” company Executive Director Haitham Mohamed Alshasibani told reporters here.

Founded in 1980, the company launched its popular SMACC (Sales Management and Accounting System), a software package for accounting, inventory and payroll solutions, in 1992.

The company plans to set up a development centre at an estimated cost of Rs100mn in SmartCity being built by Dubai’s Tecom Investments.“The company conducted surveys in the US, China, India, France, Malaysia, Russia and Denmark and found there was a vacuum for a good accounting package in India and hence we decided to launch its software business here,” Alshasibani said.

Every year 12,000 students are learning SMACC from different colleges in Saudi Arabia and Sudan. In Saudi Arabia, the King Faisal University, Technical College (Kullia Tagnia) and Al Imam University are conducting regular courses on SMACC.

The company specialises in telecommunications and wireless security equipment. Its clientele includes government bodies and private companies in the Kingdom.
