Our Company was incorporated on September 15, 1991 as a private limited company with the object of designing, developing, installing and maintaining software packages for domestic and international markets. We are registered as 100% Export Oriented Unit (EOU) with Software Technology Parks of India, Department of Electronics, Govt. of India, New Delhi.
We developed and exported software packages from 1993 to 2003 namely “Mimex” for GUI application, LearnX a self learning tool, ELX, Flicker, MathX, EzEc builder, Netcare, E-DOCS, etc. With E-DOCS, we provided powerful, extensible and affordable document management and imaging solution to companies and organizations looking to reduce their dependence on paper distributed information more efficiently and assist collaboration among users. MathX was an interactive mathematical wizard on MS-Windows , NT and 95 for evaluating complete expressions and solving intricate equations. It provided an easy to use interface to combine equations, graphics and text in single/multiple documents. EzEc Builder package was an integrated Electronic Commerce Tool to create and maintain supermarkets on Internet. It provided a Back-Office administration and an extensive set of canned reports. A virtual ERP, with all facets electronics commerce, inventory control, financial accounting and customer management. Our turnover increased from Rs. 4.5 Million to Rs. 78 Million during fiscal year 1993 to 2003. In the domestic market, we also developed Intelligent Data Acquisition System and installed on Konkan Railways in 53 stations from 1997 to 1999.
We started developing Railway Safety systems from 1999 and successfully developed and demonstrated a prototype of ACDs to Konkan Railway Corporation Limited and Members of the Railway Safety Board. In March 2000 we entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with KRCL for Technical Collaboration for developing full scale networked Anti-Collision Systems (ACDs). We, jointly with KRCL, took up an intensive analysis of the major accidents that occurred in India , The functional requirements of the clients and operational safety procedures have been fully considered, for designing the logics of Anti-Collision Systems. Based on the concept and domain knowledge provided by Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd, we developed the networked Anti-Collision Devices, using Global Positioning System, Radio Data Communication, Application Logics and Inter facing these with an Auto Breaking System developed by KRCL.
The product has been successfully developed for deployment after initial and extended field trials on the Amritsar-Jalandhar Section of Northern Railway using 125 ACDs of different types during July 2002 to January 2003. The product underwent improvements and series of successful trials over a period of 3 years. Consequent to an agreement in the year 2003 with KRCL, we became the exclusive manufactures and suppliers of these systems to KRCL including installation and maintenance. On January 20, 2004 the Honorable Railway Minister launched the project at Kishangunj, Bihar on the Northeast Frontier Railways. Subsequently we have taken up execution of a project for deployment of ACDs on over 1730 KMs on the same route, which is being completed shortly.
We also developed ADDs for Metro Sky-Bus System during 2003 – 04 under technology partnership with KRCL. We have also been carrying out research and development work on Advanced Railway Signal Systems on cost sharing basis with KRCL.
The company with its proven quality systems was certified as an ISO 9001-2000 in terms of process maturity in Software Life-cycle Management from Lloyd's registrar Quality Assurance in June 2002.
We are at present engaged in manufacture, installation, commission and maintenance of networked Anti-Collision Systems for Konkan Railway Corporation Limited. During the financial year 2003-04 and 2004-05, our entire revenues were generated from the manufacture and supply of Anti-Collision Devices and services viz. Track surveys, installation and maintenance, trading activity through sale of accessories of ACDs. In fiscal 2003-04 the revenues from supply of ACDs were just over 50% of our total revenues. The revenues from sales and services of ACDs have increased from Rs.162.7 Million to Rs. 531.53 Million during 2004-05, which shows the importance of increased use of these safety systems by the Railways.
We being the sole manufacturers and suppliers of the Anti-Collision Systems, our technical facility at the Infocity Layout, Madhapur, Hyderabad has been designated as the “Outsourced Facility” for these systems for Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. We therefore receive our orders for these systems from Konkan Railways Corporation Ltd. who in turn receive the orders from Indian Railways. We also supply the accessories since these are subjected to pre-supply inspections by us. Development of ACD technology and getting the product manufactured at a single source is advantageous to the user as the ACD system requires continuous R&D, innovation and Quality Certification. We also execute on site projects in various zones where the ACD deployment is required. Thus, we provide to KRCL and also Indian Railways through them, Turnkey solution as a single window.
