Business may or may not be slowing up in the US, but software companies certainly seem to be picking up customers in Pakistan at a regular clip. On the heels of several ERP implementations by Aisha Steel, Dow University and others, Systems Ltd. has now announced that the Government of Pakistan’s welfare arm, Bait-ul-Maal, has awarded them an extensive web application development contract.
Over the past 30 years, Systems has been the one constant in the Pakistani software industry. They’ve grown to almost 1,000 people globally and continue to innovate in interesting areas. Lots of intriguing pieces of industry lore are associated with this company and its founder, Aezaz Hussain. Their subsidiaries include Anivista, an animation company, VisionNET USA, a BPO practice in Pakistan, the core Systems Ltd. software development company and of course, their Asian operations also undertaken through a subsidiary.
