That can lead to reduced inventories of the materials used to make products (work-in-progress inventory), and it can help users better plan deliveries to customers, reducing the finished good inventory at the warehouses and shipping docks.

Standing Tech helps in standardizing HR information:

In Erbil, there are a lot of companies with multiple business units, HR may not have a unified, simple method for tracking employees’ time and communicating with them about benefits and services. ERP can fix that.

Why right to left web designs is not easy

By: Vareen Azad, Date: 24/11/2018

The Middle Eastern market is developing at a fast pace, and, therefore, interest for IT items is additionally blasting in the locale. So regarding the development of websites, Middle Eastern countries need a website design that is not only compatible with their needs and comfortable for their users, but that is also appropriate to their language standards, making a serious alteration process very important. Given that most dialects talked in the Middle East are composed and perused from right to left like Kurdish and Arabic languages. Developers while designing websites they face a range of problems when creating products in those languages. Although this might seem like not that big of a deal, IT development for right-to-left (RTL) languages entails paying attention to a number of peculiarities.

By the way that the RTL showcase is moderately new, and very few assets are accessible to encourage engineers and only one out of every odd organization give RTL configuration yet Standing Tech Company gives a full assembled RTL plan for clients and their involvement with RTL advancement has empowered them to gather an intensive rundown of tips that are valuable for anybody building up a RTL item, (for example, a site or portable application). The way toward adjusting a site to a specific region, is basic for any interface, regardless of whether just a little measure of substance is there. As various regions and distinctive dialect bunches have different highlights, engineers must consider these distinctions while making a site. A portion of these structures might be difficult to see, especially without the assistance of a local speaker. These highlights are especially apparent with regards to structuring and creating sites for the Middle Eastern market.

Demand for the creation of right-to-left (RTL) websites has grown over the years due to the fact that Arabic is the 4th most popular language globally. According to Arab Media Outlook, 60% of Arabic speakers prefer browsing internet content in Arabic. The lack of currently available content in Arabic & Kurdish and the existing need for this content among users is sure to continue this growth. But off course there are some difficulties and limitation of developing a RTL website design as below:

Differences & Difficulties in RTL design

When designing and developing an RTL website, the decisions that need to be made can oftentimes be confusing for those used to designing LTR projects. Applying a mirrored structure should help those starting out ease into the transition.

The creation of web services and localization of already existing products for the Middle Eastern market is stipulated by certain features that can differ vastly from English (left-to-right) websites. The set of rules and design solutions used for LTR websites are of little value when developing websites for an Arabic or Kurdish RTL audience. This is because RTL websites require a different structure, typography, and imagery. At first glance, it might seem like an Arabic website is just a mirrored copy of an English one. However, it can involve a lot of effort to make a page with mirrored content appear properly on a screen. The below content re the creation of RTL projects including potential problems and solutions, below:


The main and most obvious difference between LTR and RTL languages is seen in the direction of writing. In RTL languages, writing and reading is done from right to left. This directional change affects the structure of the website, as well as typography, icons, and images. To design an RTL project, flipping or mirror every piece of content is a must, with a few key exceptions. To understand what to mirror and what to change entirely, it’s important to imagine the motion of time which flows from right to left in Arabic & Kurdish language. For example, a list of icons that displays a specific sequence should start from the right side on an RTL website. With the help of some basic rules, designing an Arabic & Kurdish website can be fairly straightforward. However, when multilingual platforms are involved, it’s crucial to plan out the architecture of the projects properly in order to avoid language conflicts when switching from LTR to RTL languages.

When beginning work on this type of project, developers should spend time designing both LTR and RTL versions since each of these is equally important for a successful end result.

Font problem may also appear in RTL designing, If the client doesn’t own a license for a right-to-left font, and if the standard fonts that come free with design software are not suitable, the question of which font to use can cause problems for designers who do not often work with these languages. This is easily resolved if your DTP provider already owns licenses for a variety of foreign-text fonts, which is a good reason to work with professionals who are familiar with issues surrounding right-to-left DTP.

So for designing Kurdish, Arabic or any other right-to-left language, you have to be sure to work with a Language Service Partner who can provide Arabic-language DTP as well as translation. Fully localized content should look as though it has been developed specifically for your audience, especially with respect to formatting and design.


There are further differences with Arabic & Kurdish when it comes to numbers. Most Arab countries use the more traditional Western Arabic numerals. Western Arabic numerals are slowly becoming increasingly popular, even in more conservative Arab countries like Saudi Arabia. This feature is important to consider when localizing dates and icons and should match what is most commonly used by the locale.


Appropriate consideration ought to be given to Arabic and Kurdish typography. To keep up simple clarity, striking typeface ought to be stayed away from. Emphasized text style is additionally not utilized in Arabic or Kurdish. There are other typographic highlights to mull over include:

  • aligning text to the right side.
  • shortening days of the week, months, etc. is commonplace in English, but is not appropriate in Arabic & Kurdish.
  • resizing font to preserve text readability. Traditional Latin typography fonts won’t fit properly with text in Arabic & Kurdish and therefore font sizes should be increased in the Arabic & Kurdish version;
  • factoring in the length of words as most Arabic & Kurdish words are shorter than those in English;
  • words in LTR languages don’t change their direction and neither do digits (like phone numbers with international dialing codes). These are still displayed on RTL websites as they would be on LTR websites.


In addition to the fact that images make a site outwardly appealing, they pass on a specific thought. Picking a picture requires proper choice, considering social characteristics with regards to recognition.

Flags for the Arabic and Kurdish rendition of a site can be reflected, however best practices prescribe choosing singular pictures for every form of a site. Basically mirroring an even picture may result in contorted showcase when exchanging among LTR and RTL renditions of the site.


Mirroring icons in an Arabic interface should be done with proper caution. Sometimes mirroring or flipping isn’t necessary and sometimes it is. Basic guidelines are as follows:

  • Symmetrical icons, as well as icons without an explicitly specified direction (such as camera, download, user profile, etc.), don’t need to be flipped.
  • Icons with an explicit direction should be mirrored. For example, the back button should point to the right in the RTL version.
  • Icons that describe movement or text direction should be mirrored (such as text alignment icons, progress charts, etc.)
  • Icons featuring English characters don’t need to be mirrored, but should be localized.

Below is a complete overview of elements that may be found in a website’s layout and whether or not these should be mirrored in RTL projects.

  • Navigation buttons & logo — a logo is usually placed in the left upper corner of English websites. Oppositely, In RTL websites, the logo is placed in the right upper corner. This principle also applies to the menu and navigation buttons which should be displayed in reverse order.
  • Form fields — headings and icons that refer to a given field on a form should be placed in the opposite position on RTL websites.
  • Video and audio players — video and audio players should not be mirrored because they represent playback progress instead of the flow of time.
  • Dates — Arabic & Kurdish-speaking users have their own calendar, but they are also used to the standard international date format.
  • Calendars — calendars need to be mirrored. Monday will be displayed on the right side and Sunday on the left one.
  • Tables — columns of tables must be mirrored.
  • Browser interface — Internet Explorer and Opera display scrollbars on the left side on Arabic & Kurdish websites.


It is conceivable to make viable utilization of a right-supported route menu gave the visual format unmistakably passes on the planned collaboration with the menu. In spite of the fact that the underlying communication time might be more noteworthy with a right-hand route contrasted with a left-hand route, this ought not be critical.

Clients are not liable to be more befuddled and sever their utilization of the site because of a right-hand route. They may very much want a right-hand route abstractly. Future investigations will affirm or invalidate these discoveries, however unmistakably more research is required. A closer examination of the execution of flat route menus may demonstrate that a best adjusted route menu performs best. Studies demonstrating extra favorable circumstances of a right-legitimized route, for example, more grounded spotlight on page content, ought to be led to enable Web to webpage planners settle on educated choices about the design of a Web page.

For right-to-left languages, the entire layout needs to be oriented right-to-left, not just the text.  In English, we read tables left to right, but Arabic-language tables need to be oriented right to left.

In conclusion, web designing for Arab & Kurdish website users does not finish with having content translated from a foreign language. It requires consideration, attention to detail, and the conscience that, while common practices, such as mirroring, may be applied, Arab & Kurdish users are already used to certain tools and results of left-to-right interfaces.



Why your business need a good database?

Why your business need a good database?

By: Vareen Azad, Date: 25/11/2018

Database is a self-portraying accumulation of incorporated records. A record is a portrayal of a few physical or calculated protest. It contains its very own portrayal structure. This portrayal is called metadata – information about the information. The database is incorporated in that it incorporates the connections among information things, and in addition including the information things themselves (Kroenke & Auer, 2007).

Nowadays, many companies use online databases. Online database is a record of logically related information, recorded in computer files in a uniform form to facilitate easy and efficient retrieving of data by means of internet or communication networks.

The database will be linked to the web server called Structured Query Language (SQL) server is a popular database software for database-driven web sites with high traffic. SQL Server is a very powerful, robust and full featured SQL database system. Standing Tech Company can develop complex database for any business and then developing web-based application customized for the business workflow and procedures. Standing Tech as Software Company created many databases for different types of businesses in Iraq and Kurdistan Region, for example: Point of Sale System (POS) for Pharmacies, Warehouse Management for Food Distributors, Customer Relation Ship Management, Finance and Accounting, Letter Archive System, etc. Also Standing Tech Company offers database managed services that include Oracle database support, Microsoft SQL Server support, Oracle E-Business suite support, and independent software vendors support; and professional services that include Oracle Database consultancy, SQL Server consultancy with fully managed or hosted IT systems, and offers professional consultancy services.

Why companies need database?

Analysts can use Excel to do a lot of their day-to-day jobs so most financial processes involve a lot of Excel workbooks. Notwithstanding, there are some regular information issues behind all these Excel procedures. A single Excel exercise manual can link to various Excel exercise manuals and each connected exercise manual can link to more Excel exercise manuals. Information is copied in many Excel exercise manuals. There are likewise cases that clients simply reorder information starting with one Excel exercise manual then onto the next exercise manual so information may not be constantly reliable. It is extremely tedious for any examiner to comprehend the information stream and the monetary procedures.

Exceed needs to stack every information into memory before it can process the information so it isn’t exceptionally versatile, e.g. it can require a long time to process on the off chance that it attempts to query information from tables that each have a couple of hundred thousand records. Likewise, Excel workbook regularly have the least security in light of the fact that there are simply too many Excel workbooks. It is likewise hard to actualize security when the information and procedures (or estimation) are so firmly fixing to one another in the Excel exercise workbook. For companies that has a lot of data, will be little hard to use excel because of some problems:

Excel can’t manage visual content

Many companies has products and recorded data which are more than just words and numbers. They have images, videos, manuals, and other media that matches them. Database would let you create relationships between all of those things. Excel, unless you are hard-pressed to link URLs, does not have that capability in an elegant, useful way. URLs also don’t allow you to see the content, so knowing what you have linked quickly becomes cumbersome.

It isn’t your single source of truth

Companies cannot use multiple spreadsheets a single, reliable place where you can go to find product information. Because if you can’t have your visual content and your product data together, there is already a problem. But the other real problem with spreadsheets is that they aren’t exactly collaborative. A real product database would give you and your coworkers a place to access and edit information from a single, centralized place.

Hard in Filtering and finding data

You would expect, at the very least, that a database could help you find information fast. But in excel its hard so with these limited functions, it makes filtering and finding information quickly a pain. A good database will not only have a solid search function but also give you the capability to stack filters to find exactly what you want.

Oppositly, Database is actually very similar to Excel workbook.  Databases store data in table (worksheet) and tables have records (rows) and fields (columns).  But worksheet in an Excel workbook can only store one million rows where tables in database can store billion, trillion…records.  database has some component like:

  • Index is a set of columns that can quickness the records retrieval time,
  • Query is a logical presentation of physical data; a query can make up of numerous tables,
  • Referential Integrity allows data authentication

Another advantages of database for organizations is providing central security, backup and restore, performance tuning and other vital signs monitor. If all the data is centrally stored in a well-designed database, then there would be no duplicated data and data is always consistent. Managers and business owners can start their analysis whenever they want, they no longer need to look for data, transform data, or validate data; the data is always ready to use.

Advantages of using database

  1. Data management system is needed for data access within the company

Modern database management systems are reliant on a programming dialect that is called organized inquiry dialect. This dialect is then used to access, refresh and erase information that are available inside its tables. The database frameworks additionally contain programs that incorporate Microsoft’s SQL server and the open source MySQL questions that empower outside projects to get to its information through SQL inquiries. For instance, a page can show data or information that incorporates item information and portrayal, photos and costs. This data is effortlessly accessible to the client effectively, when the web server programming is associated with the social database administration framework.

  1. It is needed to maintain strong relationships between data

One of the most important functions of relational database management systems programs is that it allows different data tables to relate to one another. At the point when a database contains data about representative information on its item deals in a single table and another table contain data one with deals worker information, at that point a social database will be flawless to deal with their connections in an efficient and straightforward style. This framework thusly can help mark supervisors to comprehend imperative measurements like which salesman can offer the most or which item is being sold by a specific sales representative.

  1. This system allows newer and better updates

A helpful and profitable database administration framework permits mark chiefs to enter fresher data as well as refresh the present data and furthermore erase data that they don’t require. For instance, when a sales representative can offer 1,000 units, at that point that individual can enter that exchange data in the social administration framework which can incorporate certain subtle elements like the individual’s name, client data alongside the item and number of items sold by the client. The social database administration framework will enter the new records and refresh all the required data, in this manner enabling brands to track and offer their items in a compelling manner.

  1. It helps brand managers to search data in a better manner

The database management system also allows brand managers to sustain and build their data over successive years. The various tables in the relational database management system allows brand managers to search through their entire system for a particular information. The company manager discovers any data that they require, utilizing a specific criterion. This is likewise accessible for clients who can scan for any component that they need including value, shading and brand. By putting away data in an anticipated and successive organization, it empowers clients to discover the data they require without hardly lifting a finger.

With so much data accessible for organizations, putting resources into a database administration framework is of basic significance for brands over all divisions and gatherings. Today, for all intents and purposes all organizations and brands keep running of database frameworks. These storage facility of composed data can assist brands with storing data of numerous sorts, which they can’t simply sort yet in addition make accessible at the snap of a mouse too. To put it plainly, database administration frameworks assist brands with tracking all aspects of their business in a quick, powerful, proficient and effective path than any time in recent memory.

  1. The use of database in departments

For example, an organization’s HR office utilizes the database to oversee representative records, appropriate legitimate data to workers and make updated employing recruitment reports. A manufacturer may utilize this sort of framework to monitor creation, stock and circulation. In the two situations, the database administration framework works to make a smoother and more sorted out workplace. Utilizing a HR database to oversee staff records can spare you time and cash. It can streamline the majority of the HR errands, mechanize routine employments and accelerate the handling of information, for example, staff hours, leave, benefits, finance, and so forth. This can abandon you more opportunity to center around developing your business.

logistics and warehouse department uses DBMS for managing inventory well can irregularly feel like a balancing act.

A well-optimized website makes your link building more effective. Link building strategy works for some aims like first emerged as a means of increasing your ranks and visibility in search engines results. Google takes two main things into account when dragging in pages for its search engine results pages (SERPs); the significance of a page to the query, and the authority of that page. It measures authority based on the types of sites linking to that page, as well as to the entire domain, so at the end, the more links that is provided in the website, the higher your pages are going to rank.
  1. Keywords in Page Content– while entering keywords to the search engine, google will search for these keywords and if your website has these key words in the text and titles of the pages, you will rank better for those keywords on googles search result. Write your content for humans, but do keep Google in mind. Don’t use too many keywords. When in hesitation, keep it natural sounding. If you’re going to accomplish the goal of getting to the top of Google, that goal wants to be within your reach in the first place. Therefore, you need to pick the right keywords.

In fact, if you were to add up all search engine traffic that comes from the most popular keywords, it would not even come close to the amount of traffic that comes from searches using those more unique queries. This is called the theory of the long-tail. So long-tail keywords are so effective because they target people who are looking to perform a specific action, like buy something, or looking for a specific piece of information, like a how-to or a service that can solve their problem.

By Anything below 4th position and you’re below 10%. Which means that the page in first position will get five times more clicks as the one in 5th position. That means going after keywords with less competition can make up for a keyword having less overall search queries. That’s because you’re more likely to get more clicks from less competitive terms.

  1. Authority of Domain Name – The more you’ve claimed the domain, the better. The more pages of value content you have on your domain name, the better. Additionally, incorporate watchwords in your area name in the event that you can (despite the fact that Google says this does not specifically affect your rankings, it could help impact a client to tap on your site versus a competitor’s).
  2. Secure Pages – Your site pages should load by https so they are secure. Google, and ordinary people, as to see secure pages, regardless of whether you’re not preparing charge cards or acquiring individual data. In their Chrome program, Google is presently marking all pages that heap with a SSL as Not Secure. Try not to be one of these devious sites…get a SSL introduced by your web facilitating organization with the goal that every one of your page’s stack safely.
  3. URL Structure – If your page URL’s are human readable, that’s a good thing.

Because the technology is developing day after day in Iraq and people are using Smartphone and tablets are virally in use these days. Standing Tech company provides GPS system that has amazing features which is compatible mobile phones, tablets, desktop and is as easy to use like other applications on a mobile phone.

How GPS works in Iraq and Kurdistan?

The main functionality of a GPS tracking system derives from the use of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) network. This network of satellites produces microwave signals which will be send to GPS devices. These devices can be found in vehicles or smartphones themselves for example. The information that is send from the vehicle and this information are location, route, speed and direction.

In respects to vehicle GPS tracking, or vehicle communication technology, these are the four parts of GPS routing:

How GPS Tracking Working

Vehicle tracking system is becoming important in large cities in Kurdistan and it is more secured than other systems and it can be control easily.

The vehicle can be turned off by only with a simple SMS but the use and development of GPS tracing in Kurdistan is slow due to some points like: the continues problems in political, social, and economic upheavals through 2014, including civil war and the propagation of terrorist attacks which lead to economic crises and raise in cost of assets.

Also while vehicles are moving across countries in Iraq specially Kurdistan, the technical struggles might arise when the line of sight is blocked by trees, not supporting signals or other forms of obstacles. This will lead to the blockage of the reception of these signals so the accuracy problems it’s probably because your location and operator will change and the antenna will have difficulty in picking up or maintaining satellite signal.

The ‘Canyon Effect’ refers to the technical issue which results when tall buildings block the reception of GPS signal. The time and position are calculated according to the time required for the reception of the signal. The transmission of the signal happens at a specific rate. The detectors in GPS units work with accuracy only up to a time-span of 10 nanoseconds. Put in terms of distance, this is about 3 meters. This is the maximum measure of accuracy offered by a standard GPS unit.

Another vital issue is the deviation between and the GPS receiver clock timing and the satellite timing which brings synchronicity to the worldwide GPS system. This causes the time to divert away from the real time. The usage of a highly precise atomic clock can cause the GPS units to become uneconomic. The solution is using Global Positioning Satellites to triangulate the position of the GPS tracking device and determine its exact location.

The difference between domestic and international tracking is not the tracking itself, which involves satellites, but the reporting, which utilizes cellular signals even having need special SIM Cards that the price is not cheap and it works by getting the tracker’s location by just texting the tracker’s sim card phone number from your cellphone number. For example, ping the GPS tracker the GPS tracker will reply to you after few seconds with the google map URL link to you by text, and you can click the link and get the location on the google map. In the development path of technology, nowadays in Kurdistan, many cellular phones have integrated GPS receivers and your smartphone is something that you most likely have on hand at all times. This means it is always available when you need it and you do not have to think about other options that’s why smartphone is a good, reliable option for routing your way through the city by foot or car.

There is also a variety of reliable apps available that are precisely designed for smartphone GPS tracking and for improving smartphone GPS accuracy. Using your smartphone and available smartphone apps is significantly cheaper than buying a new handheld GPS for Iraqi people.
