Kanoo IT celebrates 20-year milestone

Published on January 18, 2017

Kanoo Information Technology (Kanoo IT), one of Bahrain's leading IT and technology solutions providers, recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of its establishment. Beginning as an IT arm supporting other divisions of Ebrahim K. Kanoo, Kanoo IT quickly grew to become one of the top ICT companies in Bahrain, offering design, implementation and support of infrastructure and applications to clientele in key sectors such as banking, hospitality, education, and government.

“This is a very special occasion for us,” said Kanoo IT Director, Waleed Kanoo. “To see our hard work rewarded by our passing of such a significant milestone is an incredible feeling. When we launched the company 20 years ago, software development was a relatively unexplored field in Bahrain. We hope that by helping to pioneer this industry, we benefit the Kingdom as much as it has benefited us. We are proud of the role we have played in helping IT become the vibrant field it is today in the Kingdom.”

Kanoo IT General Manager, Ramgopal Menon said: "It has been a long but steady growth journey for Kanoo IT over the last two decades. We work diligently to ensure that our products and services are at the forefront of the industry, guaranteeing success for our customers, who have come to associate our name with high-quality service. We pledge to continue to meet their high expectations as we enter our third decade.”

The IT solutions firm attained a number of achievements throughout its 20-year history, offering Microsoft Solutions and Hardware Solutions from IBM to external customers in 2005, later reaching a customer base of over 150 clients and winning the IBM Best Reseller Award in 2008-2009. Its most recent significant achievement was reaching a record growth of 60% and winning prestigious EMC storage projects, as well as adding Dell Solutions to its portfolio in 2016.

Kanoo IT recently launched an innovative new support software solution for business, K Business Suite, at the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX) 2016 in Dubai. The K Business Suite, the first of its kind to be developed in the Kingdom, consists of a number of mobile, cloud, and BI-compatible platforms bundled together. These platforms include K-Business Process Management, an engine to automate processes and achieve set targets; K-Asset Tracking System, which can scan and edit data with any Android smart device without the need for barcode scanners; K-meeting system to manage tasks, actions, and documents of meetings; K-Correspondence for creating and managing memos; and K-Payment Gateway, which can be integrated with any online payment services provider.
