Global Excellence Award to E-Bursagaz Project

Bursagaz offers higher quality online service to customers and business partners using Erksoft solutions.

The 3rd biggest gas distribution firm of Turkey, Bursagaz carried its corporate services to the online environment without compromising the international standards the firm adheres to. Instead of directly transferring corporate processes to the web, the firm implemented a more reliable and better controlled project by integrating them to WAN servers through web service interfaces developed with Microsoft technologies.

The firm's integration software was designed to operate in synchronization with "Easy Portal XL", corporate portal product developed by Erksoft, and the corporate subscriber monitoring system.

Bursagaz has certified its corporate quality by winning the "Award of Excellence" at the International Webaward Contest 2006, the 10th instance of the contest, with its E-Bursagaz project.

A successful corporate faceplate was established for in terms of design, facility, technology and innovation in 2005 thanks to the solution-oriented project partnership with Erksoft. Thanks to the "Easy Portal XL" product, the corporate portal, which is the firm's introduction to the customer, was equipped with technologic infrastructure that could be updated by Bursagaz personnel at any time or maintained when necessary.

Ali Bayrak, Director of Bursagaz Information Systems, said: "As a local firm, we are proud to have won an international award in the name of Bursa. This award given to the website of Bursagaz leans against the customer-oriented, perfectionist and high-tech approach adopted by Bursagaz. With this award, we have proven once again that Bursagaz serves at global standards."

The project's success comes from the "request list and preliminary analysis" document finely issued by Bursagaz, a web concept appropriately designed in line with the firm's corporate identity and the "constant project development" agreement concluded by Bursagaz and Erksoft.

"While adapting well-projected demands to a convenient corporate form was an advantage for our firm, our efforts were also especially fueled by the fact that our customer had high expectations. In general, your work is considered to have been completed once the project is published but we held meetings with the Bursagaz Information Systems team and kept track of the intensive development process in order to ensure sustainable quality. Therefore, we were particularly proud and happy to realize and sustain a project that is always up-to-date and improves constantly."

An exclusive and innovative project - Where is the President?

We continue to add new features to the official Presidency website, which contains detailed information about President Abdullah Gül's -who has been putting a lot of care in technologic innovations since the day he took office- daily schedule, messages, receptions and domestic as well as abroad trips.

The new project that we have devised for the official Presidency website allows tagging locations visited by the President on a map, which is done by using the Google Maps infrastructure. Through tags, one can also access relevant content as well as photos taken at the visited locations.


The Presidency Web Portal is ready for 1 million visitors daily

Combined with the dynamicity of his team, the importance Esteemed Abdullah Gül puts in technology results in emergence of fine projects.

The Presidency website now welcomes visitors with strong infrastructure and an interactive design.

The foremost criterion we sought to adhere to in the Presidency website was to offer seriousness and sincerity at the same time. We believe that we have succeeded in that regard in through content planning and design.

Additionally, it was necessary to provide sharing options for the entire website content. This was done by enabling facilitated RSS access. We worked hard in order to present multiple headlines, rich multimedia content and facilitated access altogether.

Fatih Küçükbaltacı and his team deserve special thanks for their efforts in allocating such a special work to the service of the Presidency. As Erksoft, we are rightfully proud of this.
