DATAPRO INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY LIMITED
A year has passed since I wrote to you about the activities and progress
about your Company. At the outset, I would like to state that a lot has
been achieved since, and the project is now well on it's set goal path.
Xee-MAIL is operational.
Inspite of many hurdles faced, especially the delay in allocation of leased
line from DoT - a factor beyond our control, the network has now been
commissioned. All the eight nodes at metro locations - Bombay, Delhi,
Madras, Calcutta, Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad are already
operational. We are in the process of setting up 20 additional nodes to
expand our reach to additional industrial townships.
The commercial operations of the network have just begun and during this
short period we have received encouraging response and booking from a large
user base and many prestigious organisations.
The outlook for the coming year is very positive and we are confident of
achieving the set target for the current year. Our marketing activities
too started on a very promising note. Workshops, Seminars and Online
demonstrations marked the launch of our Xee-MAIL service in Pune, Bombay,
Bangalore, Delhi, Madras, Hyderabad, Calcutta and Ahmedabad. This
bolstered the awareness and utility of our Xee-MAIL service and resulted in
getting a number of prestitious companies as our clients. Numberous unique
features like scanning of handwritten documents through existing fax
machines, cc : Mail gateway, Xee-MAIL Application Programme Interface
(XAPI) to suit specialised needs of various corporates, "Forms" package to
create closed EDI etc, which are not provided by most other E-mail service
provider in the country, also gave us the distinct advantage of placing our
service to corporations like Hindustan Lever Ltd., Smithkline Beecham and
others. For the convenience of the travelling executives and to enable E-
mail access to the common man, it has come up with Xee-CENTRES - an
entirely innovative concept in India. The Company has also appointed
several Value Added Re-sellers, as part of the distribution channel. The
focus of the marketing has however been to provide workflow automation in
On receiving valuable feedback and various demands from our customers, we
would augment our spectrum of activities to also include corporate
networking solutions. This, I am sure, will add a new dimension to the
activities of DITL.
Your Company is also credited with having its own Development team. Its
quest for excellence and for delivering solutions as per the customers
requirements will see the Company coming out with services such as Store
and Forward fax service etc., thus enhancing the utility of the Xee-MAIL
service. The goal is to provide our users with the complete workflow
The overall growth of the industrial and services sectors, especially the I.T. industry offers new opportunities and challenges to us.
"Communication links" will now become the major - infact the vital enabling
technology for a growing economy like India. This offers exciting growth
prospects for DITL.
We are confident that, based on your continued and overwhelming support,
the DITL team will achieve the desired success !
With best wishes,
