MOL Boosts Arbitration via ideas Microsoft Based Solution
The Ministry of Labour in the Kingdom of Bahrain – as part of its pursuit towards the gradual transformation from manual processes to automated ones – has sought the help of ideas IT, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, to devise a solution for the following:
• Hosting the system mainframe and the central database

The previous system was mainly manual, with a central log book being the main reference to paper documents saved in case files.
ideas, after a thorough identification and analysis of the Ministry's business needs, optimized the option of developing a Microsoft based solution built on .NET Framework 2.0, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, Windows Active Directory, MS SQL Server 2005, MS SQL Reporting, and Web Services.

1. 'Human Resources' are the major and fundamental elements in the process of continuous development.
2. 'Work' and 'Social Security' are the rights of all citizens.
3. The Ministry of Labour is the responsible body for 'organizing the Labour Market'.
4. 'Social Dialogue' between the three Production Parties (government, employers, and workers) is the key to continuous development.
5. 'A Healthy and Safe Work Environment' is essential for work stability and continuous improvement in wok processes and production.
The Labour Complaints & Arbitration Department at the Ministry of Labour followed procedures that suffered from the usual disadvantages associated with paper congestion; delay and difficulty in retrieval and reference, and the risks associated with poor security measures related to the accessibility breaches to which paper folders are vulnerable.
