Software Products

1. SDA Trademark Registration System (TMS):

This computer package is an advanced Arabic/Latin system, that automates the trademark registration, according to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). TMS package is composed of 55 modules, that handle trademark genuity search, as well as various trademark workflow navigation process, such as application, publication, registration, renewal, refusal, opposition, cancellation, reporting payment, procedures and mark historical movements. Versatile techniques are included for checking the new mark genuity, including figurative search (Identical or Similar) and textual search (Arabic or Latin with soundex), see as example the attached screen.

The system has been successfully developed and presently operational in the Ministry of Commerce in both Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. In building the TMS workflow, seven mark modes are defined as: Applied Mark, Refused Mark, Published Mark, Opposed Mark, Registered Mark, Frozen Mark and Cancelled Mark. As the TMS system was developed to regulate the workflow navigation many interlocking are added in the system to insure registration and procedures processintegrity. The TMS system is equipped with a detailed security system at each system level and function, accompanied by user follow-up and auditing. The system can also be tailored to each country’s needs and is not restricted to specific hardware or operating system. In all our dealings, the clients owns the source code of the program for future modification.

2. SDA Imagery System:

This package is an Arabic/Latin Document Manager System, developed to handle electronic multilevel archiving systems. Five self configurable levels are included in the package, namely: The Cabinets, The Drawers, The Folders, The Files, and The Page Type.The SDA Imagery package is universal in incorporating different types of images from black and white to true colors with various formats, and with various sizes from the standard A4 to the Engineering drawings of size A0. Levels of security are flexible, to be tailored according to the needs of the users.

3. SDA Tournament Teams Tossing System:

This oracle-based package is directed towards automating the tossing procedure of teams playing in tournaments.The system identifies each team by its name and representative flag (or country flag). The team flags are then tossed in public using a random number generator built in several steps until final selection of team is made, then its matching team is then selected. The procedure is repeated until all team schedules are completed. The package is based on advanced artificial intelligence and probability theory foundation. It is also equipped with implement to resume the tossing operation in case of tossing stops due to any failures. It is also furnished with multimedia impressions that makes the package suitable for public occasion specially for events broadcasted by TV.
