Bangladesh business relies on biometric solution with Openbravo.

Jamal Uddin Textiles Ltd. JTL, a Textiles manufacturer in Bangladesh, has recently enhanced its Openbravo HR and fingerprint time and attendance system with a new model to improve management of about 300 employees at Narayanganj factories.

Jamal Uddin Textiles Ltd (Bangladesh) established has two branches in Bangladesh with an estimated 500 staff nationwide. The company contacted RAWN Technologies Ltd., an authorised Openbravo distributor, to discuss their requirements and solution options.

RAWN Technologies Ltd. clearly expressed that they wanted a new solution from Openbravo for the efficient management of checking staff attendance at both factories. This requirement includes obtaining staff information from all departments in both branches and managing all records from one single platform. With this in mind, RAWNTECH proposed a Openbravo solution that includes several units of the new biometric recorders installed throughout their facilities.

The top-managements of RAWN Technologies Ltd. have been very satisfied with the Openbravo solution, as, according to the company it has exactly met their requirements. The installation of biometric time and attendance systems at RAWN Technologies Ltd. adds to the growing list of successful Openbravo technology projects.



In today’s world of fast changing markets, complex supply chain relationships and multi-channel distribution, it is essential that the business keep pace with their ever-changing world and their ERP solutions should remain aligned. There are now modern alternatives to these legacy ERP solutions that are much better aligned with dynamic markets and agile businesses.

We suggest there are 5 important questions a company should consider before moving forward with its next enterprise application project. If a company has answered yes to most of these questions, then it has already been experiencing the limitations of legacy ERP and the impact to its business agility. These solutions typically take years to deploy, are late, over budget and often rejected by users. For companies that have seen this first hand, they will benefit greatly from a platform designed from the ground up to adapt to their current and future business needs.

We have put together an infographic to better illustrate this new reality of business and how a flexible ERP could be molded to it (and not the other way around).
