To: all colleagues at NetSol
Recently concluded SAF Games 2004 in Islamabad, by the grace of Almighty, have
been a big success for NetSol. Our software solutions specially developed for
these games, (i.e. GMS - Games Management System and RMS - Results Management
System) were at centre-piece for the entire duration of these games. Our software
played a pivotal role in running these games smoothly and effectively. Our customer
i.e SAF Games Secretariat is also very pleased with our performance.
Just to give you some idea about the magnitude of SAF Games and the role of our
software. There were 15 major sports (athletics, boxing, weightlifting, swimming,
football, etc) and over 200 competitions being held at multiple venues spreading
across 3 cities. There were over 120 workstation spread across all the venues
connected over LAN and WAN. 110 volunteers were trained by our team to operate
the software at all the venues. The results of all the competitions were compiled
by our application RMS and then passed over to SAFG official web site as well
to the media centre. The complete logistics (accreditation, accommodation, transportation,
etc.) of over 6000 athletes and delegates were effectively managed by our application
It was undoubtedly a superb team effort and the entire team worked extremely hard
with absolute commitment to bring good name not only to NetSol but also to Pakistan.
Please join me in congratulating the entire implementation team on this superb
effort and achievement. Our implementation team comprised of
Lahore Office: Mohd Asghar, Naseem Amjad, Kashif Saeed, Mohd Abubakar, Imran Afaqy,
Mohd Jawwad, Danish Lodhi, Abul Munem, Mohd Ahsan, Abul Rafay
Islamabad Office: Fakhar Salahuddin, Rizwan Saqib, Abdul Jabbar, Malik Akhtar
EGS office in Islamabad: Hamid Sarfraz, Farooq Kundi
The accomplishment of this milestone was a team effort however I would like to
single out Naseem Amjad for his outstanding role and contribution
in the development of software as well as during the implementation phase. Naseem
has been involved in this project as a developer and team lead right from the
day one in early 2001.
Special thanks to Mohd Asghar for coordinating the implementation efforts at ISB.
Thanks also to Zahid Mirza for his role in effectively liaising with SAFG secretariat
and also taking good care of our team in Islamabad. Due to Zahid's efforts, we
got an excellent mileage and publicity for being the lead Sponsors, our logo was
visible at all the venues along with other major sponsors like Nestle, PIA, ICI,
etc. Thanks also to Wasim Saleh and Shahzad Asghar for their proactive contributions
in their respective areas. I would also like to acknowledge the role of SQA, Technical
