1984: A HUMBLE BEGINNING

Compsi started off as an IT consultant and Training center for IT professionals of Lahore. It was the early 1980s and the computer had just been introduced in the corporate sector in Pakistan and all around the world. With a vast variety of functions provided, the computer had the ability to revolutionize companies’ operations.

A few people saw that and took the opportunity to capitalize on this prospect. Mr. Abdul Aleem of Lahore was one of them, and with this in mind, he started Computer Services International, now known simply as “Compsi”. The company was originally meant as a training and consultancy provider for engineers in computer software Industry. The basic service provided by this business was the training of engineers in Computer Aided Design (CAD), model building etc.

1987 : SHAHKAR

As the company grew in its early years, Mr. Aleem continued to keep a lookout for new opportunities in the computer industry. He eventually spotted another important need to be fulfilled in Pakistan – Urdu typing. In Pakistan at that time all of the Urdu magazines and newspapers used to be hand-written and then published into copies.

This gave Mr. Aleem the idea that gave birth to “Shahkar Publishing Urdu”, the new project of Computer Services International. This was software which was ligature-based. It treated Urdu not as font (text) but as images. Mr. Aleem hired a good Urdu writer to develop around 30,000 images of various combinations of Urdu alphabets to be used in typing.

This venture was a major success. Most of the Urdu magazines, newspapers and digests started shifting to Shahkar. It was the only software in that industry which provided precision as well as quality to the Urdu font. This product of Compsi started new trends in the industry, more similar software were developed after it. And hence, we can say for a fact, that Shahkar contributed magnificently in maturing the Urdu Font Processing in Pakistan.

1989: HP AUTHORIZED DEALERS

The best thing that the company gained from the Shahkar Urdu project was exposure. They used to use Hewlett Packard printers and scanners in their operations for Shahkar. In 1987-88, HP noticed their effective use of its equipment and as a result, offered deal to them which they accepted. HP had given them the status of its authorized dealer in Pakistan. This was the boost that the company needed to grow immensely as it provided them with a good reputation and credibility.

1990: AGGRESSIVE EXPANSION

With this much positivity going on, it was natural for the company to expand aggressively. New offices were opened in Islamabad and Karachi and Business Operation was scaled up immensely to all parts of the country. With the blessings of Allah Almighty, Compsi products were successful Pakistan-wide and were welcomed with open arms.

Support & Service Centers were a major part of Compsi’s expansion policies. The management made sure that customers were facilitated completely wherever they were, with whatever problems they faced. Compsi Engineers kept themselves up-to-date with the latest technology and had valuable expertise.

1993 : HP AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTERS

The demands for HP soared as the market matured to the technologies Compsi introduced. It was the only one providing HP products in the spectacular way it did. These were the years that Compsi became synonymous with the brand of HP. People started believing that HP was Compsi and Compsi was HP. Compsi Team feels proud even today of this legacy and stories of Compsi are famous in the market.

In 1993, Compsi became the Authorized HP Distributer in Pakistan. Distribution was not an easy task and it was a role not to be taken lightly. But, Compsi eased into that responsibility. It made sure that HP distribution was done effectively and HP Products were available everywhere in Pakistan.

1994: COMPSI PRIVATE LIMITED

Due to all these major developments, Mr. Abdul Aleem considered converting the business from proprietorship to a private limited company. This would provide more credibility in dealings with foreign companies and would strengthen the foundations of the business. Therefore in 1993-94, the firm was converted to a Private Limited Company named Compsi Pvt. Ltd.

1999 : HP CORPORATE RESELLER

In 1999, Compsi became the Corporate Reseller of Hewlett Packard. This is a very specialized Tier-1 partnership level in which the core responsibility of the partner is to cater to the needs of Enterprise Customers. Due to its rich history, and strong HP Background, Compsi was the most obvious choice to lead the pack of Corporate Resellers in Pakistan.
