The idea of the company was first envisioned in 2004. X-Aramcon colleagues, Samir Al-Jaiban and Saleh Almutairi saw the potential of business applications product development company built on Component Based Frameworks and started researching the concept.
On May 1st, 2005 a project agreement was signed between Saleh & Samir to establish Arabic Business Systems Company to specialize in delivering Arabic Business Applications using an ASP model.
Dream v.s. Reality
After some market research, the two founders discovered the practical gap between what the small business community needs and what ABSC can deliver. The Application Service Provider model required good & reliable internet connectivity. By 2005 however, Internet in Saudi Arabia had only completed its fifth year (Internet became publicly available in Jan 1999). Hardly a few thousand businesses, primarily large enterprises, had access to good broadband internet connectivity. It was obvious that the company was not going to make any customers soon. While the feasibility study concluded that the project should be put on hold, primary and secondary market research all proved the desperate need for friendly & affordable ‘localized’ business applications by the small businesses sector.
Hibernation & Revitalization
Four years later, the two founders joined forces again armed with greater market knowledge & business management experience. This was in Nov 2010, when the company started development of its first two products, Dafater and SaaSMoney as a SaaS Monetization platform.
