TADOS in collaboration with Inclusion technologies will be providing the region with an affordable multi-featured Intra.net solution
With the growing importance of the knowledge worker who is spending between 35%-60%(14-24 hours per week) of their time searching and retrieving information, the need for cost effective method of sharing information has become a must. With Inclusion’s Intra.net solution companies are saving more than 5 hours a week per employee… implying thousands of dollars in savings per month.
Tados within the guidelines of the recently signed agreement has become the exclusive distributor for Inclusion’s Intra.net system to provide staff with the ability to post and classify content using a suite of built in tools that require no additional training. According to Mr. Fadi Tayyoun, Managing Director of Tados, “ We realized that in the ME although enterprise companies had begun to develop their intra/extranets to manage their operations and increase customer loyalty and profits, most SME’s, which make up 73% of the market were finding it too costly to do the same. As such we started our search for a solution provider who could offer such solutions at an affordable price and we finally came across Inclusion.” He added, “One of the main advantages of Inclusion is its affordability given the features provided. For a company with 20 users the cost of server licensing would be around $6000 bundled with a Sun or Linux server, and firewall. In addition companies could also opt for the ASP version which would decrease the need for additional IT expenditures.”
Inclusion’s browser based solution offers 18 collaborative and information management tools including document management, contact management, calendaring, discussion forums, email client, web link application, Image Management application, search engine and a notification system. Besides the customizable and generic edition inclusion offers 8 vertical editions for law, marketing, PR, finance, health care, energy, government, franchise and retails as well as high tech firms. Furthermore Inclusion’s intranet solution can easily turn into an extranet solution allowing customers to access relevant information and portfolios from the online website.
Inclusion also supports Arabic content filtering and indexing if integrated with Microsoft SQL or Oracle Database systems, and work is being carried out to add Arabic support in the next release. On a parallel note Inclusion’s Intra.net is easy to set up, self with a centralized administration and easy to use features requiring little maintenance and support from the IT department.
Already well renowned companies such as Sholink, BBDO, and Taco John’s a Mexican fast food chain with 400 franchise across the US are using Inclusion’s Intra.net to enable effective communication between their staff as well as with customers.
In the Gulf and ME Tados will be working with appointed resellers for the sale and marketing of Inclusion’s Intra.net. Tayyoun explained, “ We are hoping to provide Inclusion’s Intr.net solution not only in the GCC region, Saudi Arabian market and Levant.”
