Strukton Systems and Jordanian development house Estarta Solutions are in discussions to extend their existing technical outsourcing and offshore coding agreement. Strukton Systems, an IT division of Strukton Rail Infra used Estarta to develop a number of applications including the company’s wireless Dynamic Passenger Information System.

“Our partnership with Estarta during the past year has established our confidence in technical outsourcing and offshore development,” says Sjoerd Jansen, CEO Strukton Systems, on a recent visit to Jordan during the ICT Forum.

“Estarta’s technical expertise and offshore development model has provided us with the capability of maintaining our core applications, by having a knowledgeable core team, and the flexibility to further expand the team when the market need demands it,” he adds.

During 2001, both companies embarked on a ‘collaborative partnership’ to build and extend several Strukton products to meet time to market requirements using advanced technologies. Estarta assigned a flexible core team of development talent that focused on advanced software development for Strukton. Working together the development team delivered Strukton’s Dynamic Passenger Information System, which allows rail travellers to access up to date train schedules through the Internet and mobile devices leveraging WAP, SMS, and XML technologies.

Etsarta's team used a distributed development model to define and establish the design for the system interactively with Strukton’s team based in the Netherlands. The design and development was conducted in Estarta’s Amman development centre.

Estarta’s team travelled to the Netherlands to deploy and launch the system. The system has been ‘internationalised’ enabling clients to browse the system by viewing it in any European language.

Other projects between Estarta and Strukton involved a similar collaborative process. “This relationship has been both a personal and professional success, we are excited about the tangible market results that Strukton is seeing as a result of our partnership,” explains Majied Qasem, senior vice president of Services at Estarta.
