LADIS projects focused on delivering total solutions to clients. LADIS adopts a welldefined methodology whether at the level of projects formulation and contracting, or projects execution and maintenance. A typical project usually starts with the formulation of an Information Strategy Plan (ISP) for the client. The ISP, viewed as a business development activity, would form the basis for a number of projects covering the technical, the business and the information infrastructures. Strict adherence to the methodology has proven beneficial for both the clientele and LADIS. This is attested to by the success of projects and by the ability to win new business. Following is a brief summary of some of LADIS major projects:

Following is a brief description of the most recent LADIS projects with the foreign trade sector.

  • Commercial Representation Sector Information Strategy Planning

CRS plays a vital role in Egypt trade development. Together with other MOFT sectors, they have a responsibility to increase Egypt exports and to liberalize trade. In this respect, CRS contracted LADIS to compile an information strategy plan that would enable CRS to modernize procedures, increase efficiency, support plans and decision making, and disseminate trade information to concerned beneficiaries.

LADIS prepared the information strategy document over a period of six month. A team of qualified senior experts in both IT and Trade supported by specialized consultants delivered a three year plan. The plan addressed all IT related issues, in addition to CRS modernization in general. The guiding principles in the plan was, information sharing and transparency and efficient communications. The IT infrastructure was designed around the latest web-based technologies that would create an interactive, responsive CRS both within Egypt and worldwide.

  • Commercial Representation Sector Modernization & Automation

CRS awarded LADIS a three year contract to implement several IT projects according to CRS’ information strategy plan. LADIS will be responsible for the full system integration of all hardware, communication and software components in addition to the development of several software applications. The project employs a web-based infrastructure that supports a 24x7 operation, LADIS will also be responsible to support CRS in developing the information content needed. LADIS estimates that a project team of around 10 qualified experts in different IT domains will be totally involved in supporting the project over the next 3 years.

  • Foreign Trade Sector Information Strategy Planning

FTS is responsible for protecting Egypt trade interests with its international partners through implementing the WTO regulations and procedures. FTS awarded LADIS a contract to study its existing IT structures and present a strategic plan to support its objectives. The 4 month contract involved a senior team from LADIS that has worked closely with the FTS experts to clearly define an IT structure that would enable FTS to modernize its operations and achieve its objectives.

E-Government projects

LADIS E-Government projects were primarily based on its experience in, and thorough understanding of, specific business domains. This coupled with the projects that LADIS has undertaken in these domains to build “back-offices” made it the right candidate to avail certain government services to citizens through the various E-Government mechanisms. Hence, LADIS was engaged in projects to avail services of the Public Notary… and the Courts of Appeal to the public in Egypt.

Based on LADIS performance, the Ministry of State for Administrative Development (MSAD), being in charge of the E-Gov portal, has assigned to LADIS additional services, namely: the Public Notary, Public Registry and courts of family affairs.

Cairo appellate court

Cairo appellate court has an automated system that is working since 2000. This system covers most of the work, but it does not integrate the different departments together. In addition, it uses an out-dated technology, and there are some departments that are not automated at all. The project aims to: enhance the automation of the case initiation and management lifecycles, automate the business processes that have not been automated, integrate with ECMA II (the current application for the primary courts), integrate with the archiving system, and study the automation of the criminal appeal’s cases lifecycle (الجنح المستأنفة), finally to upgrade the E-Gov portal services according to the new architecture.
