Cairo system is a fully integrated data-driven set of software applications that have been developed over more than 40 years.
Back in 1980, the first version of the system, called Rhandm, was developed in affiliation with NEC Australia to serve the Fundraising organizations in Australia. The system was designed and developed to be dedicated to, and only run-on, the NEC Mainframe and Minicomputer systems.
Following the Personal Computer (PC) revolution in mid-1980, there was a strong demand from our existing client network, and also from a large number of prospective clients, to redevelop the system to add more capabilities and more importantly to run on the newly PC networking. So, the second version of the Rhandom system was born and called FundMan, a short name for Fundraising Management System.
FundMan was augmented with more improvements and also more features to support not only the business of Fundraising but also the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Membership systems.
FundMan was a great success, it was used locally in Australia by a large number of existing and new clients. Also, it was used by many new clients worldwide in the USA, UK, NZ and PNG.
In 1995 and following the release of the Microsoft graphical-User Interface Windows operating system (Windows 95), was another strong demand to upgrade the system to support more business domains and to run on the new Windows operating system.
By the end of 1996, a new version of the FundMan system was redeveloped with wide support of many new business domains including Subscription, Repair and Service, Residential Real Estate, Diocesan Management for the Catholic Church worldwide, Payroll, Pallet Manager for Sydney Flemington Market, Account Payable and Account Receivable. The new updated version was called “NADMAN”, a short name for Name and Address Data Management.
To be able to support a several number of independent business domains, NADMAN was designed as a set of integrated modules that can be used in any configurations to suit different business’s needs. This new system architecture provided NADMAN with a great level of flexibility and configurability that allowed our clients to adopt and utilize what they need in terms of system modules. Having said that, our clients were offered a great opportunity to scale-up their system by simply integrating more modules to their existing system when needed. On the other side, this architecture also allowed our clients to scale-down when they have no need to keep any module of their system.
As a result, NADMAN was even a greater success in terms of the number of clients who acquired the new system and the existing clients who upgraded their systems to the new version locally and worldwide. Following the clients network expansion, our company had appointed special agencies in NZ and the USA to sell and support the NADMAN system.
In mid-2010, Magdata Solutions has joined Powernet company in a mutual endeavour to combine their software systems into more powerful system that can take advantages of the Internet capabilities and also to utilize the newly computing revolution of Cloud Computing.
The Cairo Systems represent the latest version of the same product that is augmented with a great number of improvements and capabilities.
