20 Years of service to the HR industry in Malta

Dakar Software Systems is now 20 years old.  The company began operating officially in 1994 when David Schranz, founder, CEO and Chief Software Architect, registered the company as a limited liability company in Malta. It was the beginning of what, years down the line, would be Malta's leading software house specialising in people management solutions.  In fact, for many years, Dakar has been considered as the de facto standard in human resources software in Malta.

Now in its 20th year of operation, Dakar Software Systems has a team of 20 persons who are all fully qualified in the IT sector, dedicated to offering specialised support services to its clients which today number over 1,700 companies in Malta and abroad.  All Dakar software products are designed, developed, marketed and supported by the company.

Dakar Software Systems is the industry leader in Payroll and Human Resources software applications, with a presence in practically every sector of the Maltese economy.  Dakar is predominantly present in the banking, finance, insurance and auditing sectors, at corporate and manufacturing clients, in the hospitality and health care services sector, in the technology and gaming industry, in the construction sector, and in most Government Departments, Corporations and Ministries.  The Government of Malta is Dakar’s largest client.  Dakar also has a strong presence in the North African market and also in Europe.

The Dakar Payroll system is our flagship product with well over 120000 employees in Malta and Gozo paid directly via the Dakar Payroll system. The Dakar HR suite also consists of the Personnel, Time and Attendance, Rostering, Training, Recruitment, and Performance Appraisal modules, as well as numerous other related applications.  Today, all of these products are web based primarily because of the prevailing trend that emerged a few years ago for the need to host the handling of personnel transactions over the company intranet, by means of web portals, kiosks, or over the internet.  Booking absences, claiming reimbursement of expenses, clocking in and out of the office, authorisation of overtime,
and employee performance appraisals are just a few of the tasks that can now be done online.

Dakar Software Systems was the first company in Malta to launch an internet based payroll SaaS system, back in 2001. The Software as a Service product was designed to cater for companies employing less than 100 employees.   It was given a face lift in 2010 and was marketed under the brand name of Salaroo. Today there are over 250 companies in Malta using Salaroo. Salaroo is a cost effective, maintenance-free web based payroll system that may be accessed via any computer browser by simply typing  

Dakar is proud to have been of service to the HR community in Malta for the past twenty years and the company looks forward to the future with commitment, drive and enthusiasm to continue enhancing and expanding its products’ portfolio to accommodate the ever changing demands of the HR industry in general.
