Please feel free to add names to this list through comments.

4. Mentor Graphics

5. Xavour


7. Kalsoft

8. Five Rivers Tech

9. Netsol

    not everything needs to have a point. its a thought process. maybe its for input.

    on a note: Alchemy is not a software development house πŸ˜€
    on a complete tangent: blogspot isnt working again. in case, god forbid, someone READS something. *gasp*

  2. ah, yes systems i left out, and sidat is not a pure software house…then again neither is alchemy. prosys andET i havent actually heard about from alot of people. no real point to it, but this would be the list that came to my mind when i asked myself this question….a different list might come to someone else’s mind πŸ™‚

  3. I think the point is to promote Alchemy Technologies πŸ™‚

    PASHA already has a list. I would look at current and past winners of PASHA ICT Awards, Pakistani firms representing Pakistan at regional and international events, posters on the PASHA forum. It would be neat to have a listing and rating by category of services provided.

    In terms of firms you left out, I would add MIXIT, Pi Sigma, Millenium and Maison Consulting; all much much bigger than us. The names will go on for ever. (You could look at Ather’s PSEB study on the technology sector in Pakistan)

    Sidat is actually a much much much bigger shop than ours and likely to get even bigger in the future. We are just a low profile bunch of nerds, geeks and freaks and shouldn’t be on any ones radar.

    But thanks for the reference. Its always appreciated.

    post amazers has been doing pretty decent as well…
    the commander safeguard thingy n all…wats says ?

    n btw Athar Osama’s study is obsolete

  5. Great plains implementation, among other things. They did the D-Mart ERP and POS roll out. According to Sultan they now sell more MS solutions than any other vendor in Pakistan.

  6. Do the members of this room know of a player who is taking the Pakistani IT market by storm, silently ?…..I hv heard of a firm named Softflux. they hv been doing pretty well and winning top awards….they will soon catch up and beat the big names….

  7. no one has mentioned pixsense and mobilecomplete – 2 software companies which are product based, cutting edge technology, 2 to 40 in less than 18 months and looking at 100 ppl in another 18 months, already worth a lot more than most s/w houses in list above, and may exit for $100 Million +

    check out and

  8. Moazzam

    folio3, earlier clickmarks can be considered one too — although it’s more of an incubator.

    And totally agree, mobilecomplete and pixsense have a young energetic management team (the Faraz Duo) that will definitely do good. Though after talking to Mobilecomplete’s CEO seems he’s still deciding where to expand his core technology team.

    it will be better to show about international firms and multinational firms catagourically…………………………so that information can be gather without extra searching.

  10. Trashd

    Ya this is a very important post.
    For many of us we are looking at becoming the top PK company or at least working for them.
    In your opinion what makes a top PK SW firm?
    Is it just salary?
    Management style?
    Mulitnational prestige?

    What is it?

  11. Danish

    Whoever said that? Mohtashim what i did was just put a name that wasnt there coz i heard it….no marketing gimmick….

    With regard to your latest post, a little bit of everything makes a top Pakistani SW firm. The most important of it can be the way it handles itself across different global markets aka multinational prestige and brand value. We as people in the pakistani IT industry need a little value attached to our images….

    what you say people?

  12. MBQ

    i really love this last comment.

    see if this yasir dude is NOT a lahori, then its probably a ‘blemishing’ remark. if he is lahori, then well, who knows πŸ™‚ lahoris are crazy! (and fun. im a lahori :P)

  13. HZ

    Hi. if u have given there websites it would have helped me a lot. looking for a job. need the sites.

    Kindly add them if u have time.

  16. Ahmad

    You are missing Softech. Softech isn’t only one of the best but its growing fastest as well. I think they were ranked in the top 5 software houses in Pakistan by Jamal’s several years ago, and they have only been growing ever since.

  17. Hey Guys Lakson Business Solution, this is a new company but very strong company, it’s a subsidiary of Lakson Group they will kick off their competitors. This company is hiring top experts from different software companies.

    hey Ayesha Try applying in this company i hope you will get good job.

  22. strider

  28. Usama

    hey guys. also try looking for top indian software houses each with a revenue of more than

    1 -TCS $ 7 bn
    2- Wipro $ 5 bn
    3- Infosys $ 4 bn
    4- HCl $ 2 bn
    5- Satyam $ 1.5 bn

    they are much much much … bigger than ours. we have to run extremely fast to catch the train

    i could only wish that the BB and N Sahib governments during 80s and 90s could could have used their brains to bring IT for Us. pitty for them for being so dummy and illiterate people.

    ( i have been researching on Pakitans IT firms for Last 2 years )
    Now i will tell about the really good future software Power Houses that u should prefer when working for them.

    1- Si3 why?—> following foot steps of Wipro (mentioned earlier)
    2- Kalsoft why?—> Mr Kalia will make it pakistan’s Infosys

  29. strider

    Usama … could you share more information covering more SW houses … BTW I have heard that would be a rumor, that investors of si3 are taking back their investment out of the company …

  30. Rumours are abound in these tough economic times . Si3 and the whole local industry are also victims of the global fallout. I would not believe any rumours on anyone till information is made public by the companies themselves.

    Lets test the quality of our sources before spreading the word….

  31. Saeed Awan

    if some one can brief me about the software companies, I ve been ask to prepare a software for a big office consist of four floors .

  32. fawad habib

    i think comsoft is a number 1 nsoftware house in Pakistan because wants and needs of customers are satisfied here. sir shahid masood once said as a marketer you are a marketer and for marketer it is really a marketing approcch to be a good marketer and u must have to take marketing lecture for your marketing future.

  33. Saud

    Guys Systems Limited is looking for experienced lead level java resource.
    And there are rumors that ITIM has fired a whole lot of 32 people.

  34. I suggest the point is to promote edusoft system solutions.
    PASHA already has a list. I would look at PSEB(Pakistan Software Export Board) which representing Pakistan at regional and international events, posters. It would be neat to have a listing and rating by category of services provided.

    But thanks for the reference. Its always appreciated.

  35. Farhan

    I know some good SW which are not mentioned here and few which are closed or no longer exist


    Descon Information Systems (DIT24)

    If someone know more then please do add into the list.

  36. Munawwar

    Is it true foreign Banks in Karachi pay around Rs 500,000 per month to Senior level IT professional & Managers with 5 to 8 years experience, with MS degree from America (UK, Australia).
    If this is true then it seems salaries paid by foreign Banks in Karachi are acutally not much different from the US.
    If this is the case, it seems to be a good idea to first find an employment in a foreign Bank in Karachi, and then move move back to Pakistan.
    Can someone with information about salaries in foreign Banks verify?
