Computer lifeline for the disabled

eTrans, a reseller for the Silicon Graphics range of professional graphics systems and servers, has moved to DIC because of its highly favourable IT environment and ease of access for the disabled<br>

Middle Eastern ISO 9001 certified IT Consultancy eTrans, has opened its doors at Dubai Internet City (DIC). The move, which took just two months to get up and running, is to provide computer access to the disabled.

"Using voice recognition, specially converted keyboards or other specialised equipment, the physically challenged can read, send emails and easily operate a computer either at home or at work," said
Abdulhadi M. Daouk, chief executive officer, eTrans. "From personal experience, I know this gives a new lease of life to those who, through no fault of their own, have been traditionally barred from computer access," he added.

Daouk is grateful that the needs of the disabled have been taken into consideration at DIC which is something that, he feels, cannot be said for most buildings in the private sector.

eTrans is to also provide Internet and IT management solutions to government departments and industries including medical, banking, hospitals and engineering across the Middle East.

"The most dramatic impacts from these technologies on industry are cost of operation, speed of use and geographical reach,” said Daouk. “We can provide high-quality international standard solutions and project management regionally to improve efficiency and implement a wide range of programmes including ERP or CRM," he said.

eTrans plans to hold a series of workshops and will be exhibiting at October's IT exhibition, Gitex.
