Bank Reconciliation Project
ReconSTREAM is a banking application that I developed for automated reconciliation.

Most financial institutions have manual or semi-automated processes to reconcile some of their channels. However, this is a highly tedious process involving tens or probably hundreds of staff members. This product provides an end-to-end reconciliation solution for ATMs and other customer engagement channels, such as branches or call centers.

DMS Mobile Web App

I architected the Dealer Management System (DMS) application from scratch, with React, Material UI version 5, Redux, and other dependencies on the front end.

We developed the portal for Salam Telecom distributors, sub-distributors or POS shop users, and agency users for SIM activations, swapping, transfer of ownership, and wallet refill or top-up. The app has biometric authentication and integrations with the Saudi Arabian national database, Semati. The URL is only accessible through their special VPN credentials, and its features include multiple theme switching, RTL and LTR options, and multi-languages.

DMS for Salam Telecom

I architected the DMS from scratch and converted Figma designs into pixel-perfect, small, reusable React components.

The DMS is owned by Salam Telecom, a well-known company in Saudi Arabia. The system enables managing the onboarding process of seven types of dealers. For each, multiple users can be created and assigned different roles, such as sim activation, top-up, or sim swap. The portal also includes a commission configuration module for dealers with various reports and user management options. Other core features include multi-themes and languages, RTL support, and DataTables.

Web Portal for the Government of Pakistan
We built this project for the Excise, Taxation, and Narcotics Control Department of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Government of Pakistan.

I led this project and supervised three other front-end developers. We completed and launched the first phase of the application, which includes modules such as vehicle registration, number plate printing, tax configurations, reports based on certain conditions, invoice verification, and user management.

Video Chat App
I solely developed this application's front and back end and posted the code to my GitHub account.

I built this application for medical students to communicate via group chat or video call. Users also have a real-time view of whether other users are online or offline.

Pharmacy eCommerce App

I am currently working on this eCommerce application, which I started from scratch.

I used the React framework, Next.js/TypeScript, and Tailwind CSS. The link provided is our beta testing environment, which is just a mock for testing the UI. In the next phase, I will be implementing the APIs.
