With the faith of LINUX being the future, the future that has
arrived, IIPL has completely focused on LINUX based working. Be
it for the in-house working, for Software development, for Portal
development, for Consultancy business, IIPL works completely on
As a result, we have a number of happy and satisfied clients,
who never have had to call us for a failure. The simple reason
of which is the fact that LINUX does not crash, it does not become
obsolete, it is not affected by viruses, it doesn't need upgrades
just for the reason of increasing the bank-balance of the supplier.
IIPL is now involved in multiple prestigious projects.
1. FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING :
KALCULATE is a Financial Accounting Software. A packaged out-of-the-box
solution for the widest possible range of users (satisfying the
range, right from a small shop-keeper or single-person-business,
upto a LAN/WAN connected enterprise that could be needing Accounting
solution across the enterprise / organizations).
KALCULATE works, intentionally, only on LINUX and has established
itself in the market as the FIRST (& right now the only one)
such package from Asia-Pacific. So, popularly, KALCULATE is known
as THE FIRST FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING & INVENTORY MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
PACKAGE ON LINUX.
KALCULATE is available across India, Middle-east through a chain
of Distributors and Dealers, and is being bundled with LINUX PCs
of eSYS and LG, with many more to follow soon.
2. HOSPITAL INFORMATION SYSTEM (H. I. S.) based on Care2X,
IIPL is developing/customising a H. I. S. solution and the project
is underway. The implementation is expected to begin in a major
Hospital of Delhi.
The H. I. S. solution is also being discussed with a few hospitals.
The H. I. S. solution has great potential and can, in fact, be
developed to the extent of being used by the largest of Hospitals
with multi-specialty facilities.
Being web-based, its reach in terms of connectivity with Hospitals
and Consultants across the globe can make it the tool for connecting
the remotely located Doctors, Para-medics, small hospitals with
far-located Super-specialty hospitals, thus providing the best
Health-care facilities to people in remote areas, without costing
them the sky and without people always having to travel.
We later plan to enhance the functions available with the HIS
and provide interfaces to smartcards, fingerprint capture, credit/debit
cards and other non-medical services.
3. INDEPENDENT SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, WEB-SITE DEVELOPMENT &
HOSTING, MIGRATIONS, INSTALLATION-MAINTENANCE, SUPPORT, TRAINING
& CONSULTING SERVICES : Apart from the 2 Software Development
projects, IIPL is also involved in the above mentioned activities.Recently,
we have migrated an ENGINEERING COLLEGE to LINUX, building a state-of-the-art
Laboratory with 200+ Computers on LINUX and 20 SERVERS on LINIUX,
building an A-class ISP and A-class Hosting setup apart from Application
development Labs.All these activities have given a big jump to
the visibility of IIPL and we have invited to all major Conferences
and shows by the organisers to share our experience and views
on LINUX and its developments. IIPL is actively engaged with GOI
to work out the possibilities of building a Nation-wide support
structure to provide Services-support to the various e-Government
initiatives of NIC (National Informatics Centre, Department of
Information Technology, Ministry of Communications and Information
Technology, Govt. of India). An advanced discussion is underway
with IBM to build a Nation-wide support structure in which IIPL
has been asked to take a leading role in finalising the potential
partners that will be part of this network.
4. COUNSELLING SOFTWARE, NETWORKING & IMPLEMENTATION
FOR RAJIV GANDHI PROUDYOGIKI (TECHNICAL) UNIVERSITY (RGPV), BHOPAL,
Based on the positive experience of setting-up the LINUX environment,
the management of the M.A.I.T., Delhi has setup a Software Development
Lab at their premises in collaboration with us for development
of Softwares for industrial/commercial use and live project training
is being run by a core team headed by Sudhir Gandotra. Sudhir
Gandotra has business experience of two decades and is in IT business
since 1992. He and D. N. Rai started the company as Marketing
& Service Distributors of premier industrial products and
worked with over 600 clients.
By 1993-94, we had diversified the company into IT business and
soon the company was involved in multiple levels of Computer related
activities, viz.: Genuine Intel Dealer for INTEL CPUs and Mother-boards,
Computer Assembly and Maintenance Contracts, Dealership of UPS
and various other Computer Peripherals, Software Development &
Soon, LINUX came on the way and the company shifted to using LINUX
from the OS/2 platform that was being used by it till then.
LINUX opened new possibilities and our vision of 'LINUX getting
to be the main-stream OS (Operating system) in future' made us
take the decision to start developing expertise on this new platform.
Then the Internet became popularily used and thanks to the expertise
developed on LINUX, soon the company was developing web-sites
and hosting them on LINUX based servers. We were providing consultancy
services to others to migrate to LINUX and developing small but
critical applications on LINUX for maintaining the clients' websites
A separate Proprietorship company 'M/s. COMMUNICATORS' was formed
and today we have the experience of hosting more than 2000 websites,
among them, prestigious sites of Govt. of India (Ministry of Home
Affairs) - www.censusindia.net, and www.censusindiamaps.net.
We also own (develop, maintain, host and promote) the most prestigious
site on Indian Performing Arts - www.artindia.net .
All this helped the company develop expertise and and a special
view on LINUX, which has finally resulted into the development
of the current product "KALCULATE" - a product that
has the possibility of changing the way people use IT for their
business. In the year 2000, we did a survey of 3000 users across
the industry (Corporates, small companies, Individuals, Govt.
users, Institutions etc.) to find the acceptability and perception
about LINUX so as to accordingly develop the next phase of business
activities into the field of LINUX. This survey proved to be very
useful and apart from many other benefits, it proved the thinking
of Sudhir about LINUX becoming the main-stream Operating System
in near future.The survey resulted in interesting conclusions:
*LINUX would be acceptable to people due to its benefits of No-Virus,
Stability, Security, Low-cost;
*LINUX would be acceptable if it develops a stable GUI (Graphical
*LINUX would be acceptable if it has the basic applications for
the User on Desktop.
Out of the required application in this segment, Accounting Package
was missing while the rest were either available or being developed
around the globe already;
We took the conclusions of the survey very seriously and after
further discussions and market-feedback, we started the project
Our Vision proved right. Looking at the Global initiative of IBM
on LINUX, when we informed IBM about our ongoing project, they
responded very positively and offered us 'testing and certification
of KALCULATE on their Hardware platforms'.
When the product was ready, they offered us its formal launch
from their prestigious International-level conferences. Accordingly,
KALCULATE was launched from IBM's prestigious platform in August
2002 in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, where we received excellent
response from over 1000 participants at these locations.It is
very interesting to note that just when we launched KALCULATE,
various OEMs started announcing their plans of launching LINUX-PCs.
Also the strong wave of migration to LINUX started appearing in
the industry worldwide including India.Industry giants like HP,
SUN, SGI, COMPAQ (now merged with HP), ORACLE, DELL and many others
announced their shift towards LINUX.
As a result of this prestigious launch and our promotion campaigns,
we had good response. This resulted in the appointment of initial
Channel-partners in different parts of India and also the responses
of various OEMs (IBM, HP, ACER, HCL, WIPRO, SAMSUNG, LG, PCS,
ZENITH, VINTRON, BPL, eSYS, PRIYA) were very positive. We have
many channel partners all over the country and are in touch with
many more prospective Channel-Partners across India.
We also have active and very positive inquiries from Malaysia,
Philippines, Singapore, China, Dubai, Kuwait, New-Zealand, Australia,
US, UK, Mauritius, etc. which are being followed-up.
They all accepted the idea of "KALCULATE completing the Desktop
for the user on LINUX platform" and saw interesting business
possibilities in it. Today, all of them have already tested/evaluated
KALCULATE and the basic negotiations have taken place and offers
have been accordingly submitted to them. LG has already bundled
KALCULATE in the first phase of their Launch of Linux-PC.
We have very positive response from various companies and institutions,
who are evaluating KALCULATE for their planned migration to LINUX.
