CASE STUDY...
SITE:BAB AL UMRA
LAUNCH DATE: April 2003
DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT:4 months
SIZE OF DEVELOPMENT TEAM:12
TECHNOLOGY USED:see below...

OVERVIEW:
The Saudi Ministry of Hajj awarded 5 companies to automate the relation between


the mutamers, external agents, local umra companies, Ministry of Hajj, Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Bab Al Umra is the biggest ASP provider with more than 35% of the market and 1 million mutamer per year. This year, Bab Al Umra will be expanding heavily gaining a bigger market share and probably they might win the monopoly of the market.

BAB AL UMRA'S OBJECTIVES & REQUIREMENTS:
The project is to develop an ASP application that will automate the total Umra process. They have 1000 External agents around the world to enter mutamer data using an offline application and/or from a web interface. All the transactions of a mutamer from the minute he gets the visa number, arrival....will be registered in the system. The project needs a B2C and B2B module to automate the relation between hotels, travel agents, and Bab Al Umra. The system needs to route the mutamers to the external agent in their countries and to route travel agents to local Umra companies in Saudi Arabia.

- "A Future Superstar?"...
Netways was recently in the limelight this month, a crew from Future came over our office to get a slight glimpse of the behind the scenes work, or maybe they were talent scout looking for new Superstars...
or yet maybe they only wanted to see how we go about with the maintenance of their recently launched Future Super Star site (Netways was subcontracted by Future TV to manage the updates on Super Star site, and to maintain the online voting section along with all updates on the program and elections aiming to keep the arab world informed of the latest results for this regional popular program).
It was aired, along with an interview that was done by Aalam Assabah with a few of our spokepersons. And yes, we all watch when it aired. There's just something about seeing yourself on TV. Check it out! You never know, you could be the next Big Time Future Super Star.....
