SAP Arabia has completed its first SMB implementation, rolling out an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for 4Homes, a division of Hoshan Pan Gulf.
Hoshan Pan Gulf has 500 plus employees and offices across the Middle East. According to Pramod Kumar, IT Manager at Hoshan Pan Gulf, the SAP implementation is initially for its 4Homes subsidiary, which supplies household materials and tableware, but the aim is to expand it across other companies in the group.

4Homes has a workforce of 120 people. The implementation is based on a specialised pre-packaged solution developed specifically for the Gulf market, mySAP ERP GCC6.

SAP's partner, Satyam, carried out the deployment of the solution, which will go live next month.

"This is the first phase of the implementation and the rest will be rolled out in the next six to 12 months at our offices spread across Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Africa," Kumar said. "One of the main reasons we took up this implementation was the time period involved, which was only three months."

Ghassan Darri, sales director of SAP Arabia, announced at a recent event in Dubai that the firm has also won deals with two other SMB customers in the region, which is a sector the company is keen to develop its presence in.
