Hi there! My name's Hesham. I'm a Full Stack developer, IT Manager and Systems Analyst.

You know what really bothers me? When I see competent, skilled business owners bogged down by menial tasks which suck up all of their energy. Smart, innovative men and women who have huge potential to grow their business, but are stuck grinding away at tedious jobs. I've seen it countless times, and I always tell them the same thing...

Take the handbrake off!

Repetitive, time consuming jobs are stopping your business from growing.

I specialise in streamlining businesses by making processes as efficient as possible and freeing up that big brain of yours to grow your business. By harnessing the power of the web technology, you can offload those repetitive tasks to a good ol' robot in the cloud.



Youth Charity

Nawawi Center needed to breath life back into their web presence. After undergoing a branding and logo revamp, I helped them build a site that fit their new look.


Travel and tourism

Almarwah Travel is the leading Hajj & Umrah agency with a quota in New Zealand and Fiji.

HAJ Digital was tasked with producing a fresh new website that properly portrayed the company's values.


Travel and tourism

The team at Almarwah Travel were spending most of their time issuing invoices, writing receipts and filling out an Excel sheet of applicants. During peak season, the work piled up and was almost unmanageable.

We worked together to produce an end to end solution, which handled everything from application forms and invoicing to visa applications and flight management. We even came up with a funky tool to calculate rooming arrangements.

The result was reducing tedious admin tasks by 80%, allowing more time to be put into quality of service.


Community Organisation

Sakinah Trust was founded after the March 15 mosque attacks in Christchurch to support community initiatives.

HAJ Digital worked closely with their team to design a logo, website and brand that expressed their commitment and mission.


Urgent Couriers

The dispatcher at this urgent couriers company was receiving hundreds calls a day, and were managing it all with a simple spreadsheet.

We got to work on an online order form that fed into a real-time jobs list. This allowed multiple dispatchers to send jobs to drivers at the click of a button.


Clothing and Scarf shop

What's the best way to move stock? An online shop of course!

This one was as simple as setting up an online shop for the lovely folks at Dusty Veil to manage their stock and accept online orders.


Event management system

After the horrific events of March 2019, the resilient Muslim community of Christchurch saw a flurry of community activity. Unfortunately it was hard to keep track of when, what and where things were going on.

I was approached by one of the community leaders with the idea to build a online community calendar. Thus MuslimEvents.nz was born!

The system handled event listings, ticketing, check-in at the doors, payments and much more.
