Education and School Management Systems
Founded in 1982, Sakhr Software has developed cutting-edge technologies that have made a strong mark on the Arabic IT industry. The company pioneered a new generation of Arabic Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies at a time when international software developers were reluctant to sponsor any serious research and development to accommodate a difficult native language such as Arabic, while local software developers lacked the technological competence and the financial resources to undertake such an ambitious endeavor. Sakhr’s core strength lies in its highly experienced employees, consisting of topnotch programmers, system analysts, specialized linguists, content researchers and professional marketing and administrative staff. Graduates of top academic institutions in the Middle East, Europe and the United States, Sakhr’s development teams possess strong technical experience in solution-related business environments.
Sakhr regards its employees as its most important asset and the foundation for the continuing prosperity of its business. Accordingly, the company believes that creative thinking and innovation can only be achieved by nurturing staff growth and development. Ongoing training programs, undertaken both locally and internationally, ensure employee advancement and growth, and provide ample opportunities for innovation.
