Dohatec is a reputed and trusted Bangladeshi software company which specializes in developing software solutions and providing IT services to enterprise clients. This company has worked on many prestigious projects with numerous reputed clients in the past and now it has added another feather in its cap by bagging the project to develop an electronic Government procurement (e-GP) system for the Government of Bhutan. This e-GP will have the capacity to handle 15,000 bids a year. Dohatec has already signed the deal with the Government of Bhutan and commenced working on the project on January 26 this year.
The company has also been handling e-GP system development work for Bangladeshi Government for the last 12 years. The system built by Dohatec is being used In Bangladesh by various Government departments including the road transport and bridges ministry, water resources ministry, local Government ministry and the Rural Electrification Board. The impressive portfolio of the company includes developing Bangladesh’s voter identity registration and biometric matching system, developing voter enrolment and people’s identification software for Bangladesh’s army, working in partnership with Harte-Hanks Inc. to develop United States Postal Service’s online mail-tracking system, creating the World Bank’s World Development Report every single year starting from 2002, and various other projects with different companies in Canada, Germany and Switzerland.
The e-GP system of Bhutan will be modelled after the similar system Dohatec built for Bangladesh. In order to complete this project the company has partnered with New Edge Technologies by signing an eight year contract with them. Dohatec faced tough competition in order to bag this project and had to compete with reputed companies from various developing countries including software giants from India. Even Microsoft is greatly impressed by Dohatec’s achievements and has honoured the company by making it a Microsoft Gold Software certified partner in 2006.
