The UAE’s Central Bank is bringing mounds of paperwork under control with a document management solution from local development house, Sakhr Software. Sakhr will install the entire infrastructure to support the Arabdox solution, including servers, storage and scanners.

“This agreement is confirmation of the Central Bank’s commitment to the deployment of cutting edge technologies and solutions to address its pressing need for an electronic document management system that will manage the enormous amount of documents and files generated by the bank, as well as provide prompt and easy access to this information when necessary, from any location at any time,” explains Khalifa Al Dhahiri, IT manager with the Central Bank.

Arabdox enables the management, archive and retrieval of Arabic documents, based on a number of proprietary NLP technologies, including Arabic OCR, Keyword Extractor and Arabic search. The system supports all popular file formats and ODBC, which allows users to access different databases, over the internet or their corporate intranet.

“In seeking only the highest calibre technologies for the aim of optimising efficiency and enhancing performance, the Central Bank chose Sakhr Software, [because] of its expertise [and] its leading technologies in electronic document management systems,” states Al Dhahiri.

The agreement was announced following a meeting between Fahad Al-Sharekh, general manager of Sakhr Software in the UAE, and business development manager of Al-Alamiah Group and senior management of the Central Bank.
