The Engineering Company
for Digital Systems Development
RDI has been founded and started working since more
than 17 years ago, when a recognized group of university professors
specialized in CIT have launched it to existence in 1993 as a R&D
software house specializing in written and spoken Arabic HLT (Human Language Technologies),
e-Learning, and Arabic Multimedia Applications.
RDI is currently an Egyptian
corporate company subject to the Egyptian law of Investment
Promotions and Guarantees (law no. 8 of year 1997) with a
renewable validity time interval of 25 years.
With a mission of serving the Arabic language and culture,
RDI people have always been developing and deploying original various
Technologies and Applications in main fields like written and
spoken Arabic Language
Engineering, Education, Culture Transfer, Entertainment, Edutainment
via all electronic media from the Cassette and Video tape, to the
CD and the DVD, up to hand-held devices including PDA’s
and 3G mobile phones.
Combining both the technical
distinction and the marketing expertise in the region, RDI has
been capable to expand during only 10 years from a very small
entity driven only by 3 persons to be a medium size corporate
company employing highly qualified professionals: 10% have PhDs,
20% have M.Sc.'s, 20% Microsoft certified, and 10% Macromedia
Moreover, this combination of technical distinction and marketing
expertise enabled us to:
Discover many precious market opportunities
locally, regionally, and internationally.
Provide creations that
meet these opportunities.
While catching these opportunities in
the right time is essential to widening the financial resources
of RDI, additional resources are quite vital to keeping the
persistent growth rate that RDI has achieved over the past years
which will turn it into a large pioneering corporation (provisionally
a Holding Company).
To this end, and after a
first round of investment by Saudi investors in 2002/2003,
RDI has successfully completed in 2005/2006 a second round
of investment with the Technolog Development Fund (TDF)
of the Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information
Technology (MCIT) who invested about 1 million USD buying
RDI corporate stocks.
