e-Channelling to go international in June

E-Channelling PLC (ECL), which recently sealed a joint venture (JV) with a British firm and partnered with IFS, a global ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions company to open new avenues for their operations, will go international by forging more such JVs next month, officials said.

“We went into a partnership with Software Distributions, a British firm and formed ECL Soft, to diversify into BPO work. On Monday, ECL Soft made a deal with IFS to partner us in global growth opportunities. With ECL Soft, we plan to go international with more such partnerships,” an official told the Business Times.

He said that ECL will have equal shareholdings between E-Channelling and Software Distributions. The Business Times in mid April reported that e-Channelling which is well known for centralized doctors’ appointment booking system is looking to start a new firm which will include their international operations, marketing and software engineering functions.

The official further said that e-Channelling with ECL Soft is already negotiating with a firm in Australia and Bangladesh for such partnerships, while is currently in talks with a hospital in Pakistan to provide channelling solutions.

The company early this year struck a deal with Watania Telecom Maldives, owned by Qatar Telecom to provide software services to automate medical channelling services in the Maldives. He said that ECL Soft will find them new markets in healthcare industries and devise market strategies offering all in one solutions.

He noted that e-Channelling has been developing software for pharmacies, laboratories, medical centres, etc for the past five years, which is their core function and they are evaluating how best they can reposition this brand along with the company. He said that from the same software solution, e-Channelling has derived software to manage operations of medical clinics, retail pharmacies and medical laboratories.
