"What an honour. We are pleased that TerraData has chosen DIDX as the recipient of the 2010 Teradata National Information Technology (IT) Excellence in Software Development Award. This only makes us want to develop it and other current and future software and services to renown, but even more so to see that they all enable people and organizations in positive ways. It brings pride not only to our US-based headquarters but also to Pakistanis who are developers, users, and business creators of technologies, all over the world," stated Rehan Allahwala, President of Super Technologies, Inc. after reading the announcement.
Suzanne Bowen added, "Before the DIDxchange, the traditional format of buying and selling DIDs was in a carrier-based to CLEC or voIP company model and in many cases, a provider was only able to offer DID phone numbers in one or more areas of one nation. Once DIDxchange was formally rolled out in 2005 in a peering form where voIP companies, CLECs, social community networks providers, calling card operators, and other nextgen or traditional wholesale groups were suddenly able to buy and resell phone numbers that are geographically based in 50-70 countries to their end-users, both individuals and organizations. Only one interconnect and one interop connects each with all."
She continued, "Even better, now in 2010, the wholesale members using DIDX, can use ring to options of SIP, IAX2, H323, and Skype, plus offer incoming fax, SMS and other features on select DIDs. We're are working to help more countries' governments 'export' their DIDs for maximum entrepreneurial activity, increased gross national income and even more new businesses and jobs as a result. Governments, citizens, traditional carriers, and new kinds of IP communications companies stand to benefit."
Other products, software and services by Super Technologies, Inc. include School Management System, Health Management System SMS which won a Mobile Monday Peer Award 2010, Virtual Phone Line also awarded TMC Internet Telephony Excellence, Muntwo video production with a social twist, and an online magazine Techistan.
