Sri Lanka E-Channelling Firm in BPO Joint Venture with a British Firm Software Distributions of the United Kingdom

05th May 2011, www.lankabusinessonline.com

E-Channelling, a listed Sri Lankan dotcom that enables patients to make appointments with doctors over the internet, has formed a joint venture with a British firm to diversify into BPO work.

The new joint venture company, called ECL Soft, will have equal shareholdings between E-Channelling and its partner Software Distributions of the United Kingdom, a stock exchange filing said.

The joint venture's lines of business will be non-healthcare software development, knowledge process outsourcing, business process outsourcing and consulting, and global marketing of the company's products.

The statement did not give any financial details of the venture.

In January, 2011 E-Channelling struck a deal with Wataniya Telecom Maldives, owned by Qatar Telecom (QTel), under which it provides software services to automate medical 'channelling' services in the Maldives.

  1. What's the point of expanding and growing if the basic foundation services don't function properly. According to Asiri Surgical (dental) section an E-Channeling APPOINTMENT # or the TIME is not valid and what matters is the NUMBER given AT the hospital. Which Means if I book via e-Channelling 2 weeks ago and I got number one and my time was 11am, when I get to hospital at 11am I will have to wait till all the numbers given at the hospital finish to see my doctor? in which today I waited for 2.5 hours because i booked via e-channeling & not physically via Asiri. If I had booked at Asiri I would have gotten in and finished my appointment within 15 mins. Unbelievable!

    Kind of absurd isn't it??? Going in to such great technology advancement & ventures when a simple logical number sequence cannot be followed at hospitals? (Should you need more info I'm reachable at jnemesisj@gmail.com)
