Specialising in the development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, Bileeta (Private) Limited has earned a reputation – both here and abroad – for providing a cutting-edge solution to both medium and large-scale enterprises.

CEO Sanji De Silva and COO Sanka Weerasinghe of Bileeta are on an aggressive growth path that continues to gain recognition, specifically with the affirmation of ICTA – the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka.

Competing head-on with other well-known ERP solutions Bileeta’s ERP solution delivers a number of key advantages making this Sri Lankan product amongst the most competitive in the market.

Commenting on Bileeta’s investment into developing its proprietary ERP solution and the rich dividends it delivers, CEO De Silva draws attention to the beginning of the project 11 years ago and underscores the dedication of his team and their “single-minded focus” as being a crucial factor in the company’s success.

“A significant cost differential, development with Sri Lankan requirements in mind, ample built-in flexibility, real-time and readily-available maintenance sans foreign input are some of the advantages that make Bileeta’s solution truly compelling,” explained Bileeta’s COO Weerasinghe.

Having already captured a niche in the local market, Bileeta has set its sights on capturing international market share with a foray into Australia. The company received its first overseas order two months ago, thanks to a grant from the ICTA to promote their product in Australia.

In recognition of the cutting-edge product and its quality, Bileeta won the Silver Award in the ‘E-logistics and Supply Chain Management’ category at the 12th National Best Quality Software Awards (NBQSA) ceremony held in October this year. Held to provide a platform to recognise outstanding contributions and performance by local companies to the development of ICT in Sri Lanka, the NBQSA is an annual event that continues to grow in importance and acceptance.

Following on the heels of its recent national recognition, Bileeta was also nominated to represent Sri Lanka in the Asia Pacific ICT Awards, which is a further endorsement of Bileeta being regarded as a top player in the IT software industry.

“It is a tremendous feeling to know that that we are realising the benefits of developing a world-class ERP solution. This clearly underscores the fact that Sri Lanka has a wealth of talent in the IT field. I must sincerely thank my team of dedicated professionals who continue to be a part of this amazing journey,” adds De Silva.

“The NBQSA Award has given us a great sense of encouragement. To be recognised as one of the best in Sri Lanka provides us the platform to position our product as the ‘best of breed’, not only locally but also in the global marketplace,” says Weerasinghe.
