Transtek Systems is a major business software firm in the Middle East.[1][2][3] Transtek System's flagship product is Compass ERP, a dual language (English-Arabic) Enterprise Resource Planning system. According to the major Arab daily Al-Hayat, Compass ERP was the local alternative in Syria after US economic sanctions prohibited major international technology and ERP vendors to sell their products in Syria.[4] Transtek System's Compass ERP package has an estimated 80% marketshare, also due to lack of competition.[5] Another product that filled a gap created by sanctions was Compass AML, the first anti-money laundering system produced in the Arab World.[6]

Transtek System's CEO Abdulsalam Haykal was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2009.[7]
