Kuwait Ports Authority (KPA) has announced that Arabesque Group, Microsoft’s partner in Kuwait has started work on a portal solution that automates the management of commercial harbours across the country. The portal built using Microsoft .NET technologies streamlines and automates KPA’s internal and external business operations with customs, shipping agents, operator lines, and government institutions. “KPA played a vital role in the growth of Kuwait’s economy by attracting foreign investments into Kuwait and establishing modern ports to facilitate higher volume trades between Kuwait and the rest of the world. The new portal delivers faster, easier and efficient operations and customer interface to KPA staff, management and customers,” says Sheikh Dr. Sabah Jaber Al-Sabah, General Manager of Kuwait Ports Authority. The portal solution built on the .Net platform includes Microsoft’s Exchange 2003 for messaging; Windows 2003 Active Directory for user authentication, Microsoft's application server and SQL Server 2003 for the database. "Using Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET for development, the portal is based on native XML which makes it ready to integrate seamlessly with customs’ solutions that are in place today, as well as with future projects,” says Ahmed Al Atheri, general manager of Arabesque Group. The portal also offers a centralised system for workflow, document management, archiving, tracking and online information and payment transaction facilities for KPA staff, suppliers and customers. “This project represents great commitment and dedication from KPA to facilitate larger economical growth to Kuwait in order to ensure that Kuwait has one of the most advanced commercial ports in the world,” Mohammed Al Tura, government sector sales manager for Microsoft North Gulf.
