Abu Dhabi-based Monaqasat wins World Summit Award for ebusiness and commerce
Abu-Dhabi based Monaqasat.com has won a United Nations World Summit Award for its eTendering solution.
The award, for outstanding e-content in the e-Business & Commerce Category, recognized the eTendering platform for its ease of use, security and cost reduction, and its role in boosting e-services to citizens and government and in combating fraud.
The eTendering system has over 700 active customers, and around AED 37 billion ($10bn) of bids have passed through the platform since its launch in 2009.
Karim Helal, general manager of Monaqasat.com commented: "We are truly delighted to be chosen for this distinction that recognises the best in e-content solutions. Such achievements go a long way in motivating the Monaqasat.com team to develop and deliver versatile solutions that can create value and build a healthy interaction for our customers."
The World Summit Awards (WSA) aim to promote the world's best e-Content and innovative ICT applications. Each UN Member State can only nominate one product per category for the World Summit Award.
"With the winners from World Summit Award in e-Content, Cairo has hosted the best digital producers, interaction designers and content developers from all around the world. They will demonstrate the richness and diversity of the content industries. Cairo will be a special stage to highlight what can be done with modern ICT to develop local communities, national social strategies and meaningful jobs," said WSA chairman Peter A. Bruck.
