Al Salem York Saudi Arabia is poised to implement Scala 5.1 Global Series software. When completed the ERP project will consolidate Al Salem York Saudi Arabia’s financial statements and HR practises, while enhancing online management across its three companies — Al Salem York Services, Al Salem Air Conditioning Company and Al Salem York Manufacturing Company.

"We were in dire need of a total solution for the Al Salem-York companies, which comprises sales, service and manufacturing of air conditioning equipment and parts," says Bilal Karima, Al Salem York Project Leader.

"The company is growing fast and has extended its reach to the central and eastern regions of the Kingdom, while maintaining its head office in Jeddah," he adds.

Al Salem York only opted for the Scala solution after 12 months of in-depth investigation into other possible solutions. Topping the group’s selection criteria was good support, ease-of-use and tight integration.

“Scala's edge was that the people behind it quickly diagnosed our needs and were extremely fast in proposing the best solution,” explains Karima.

“Its multi-language capability was crucial as our financial reporting needs to be in English and Arabic. We were particularly impressed with its reporting capabilities which consolidates the reporting of all three companies,” he adds.

The migration towards an integrated ERP solution represents a paradigm shift in the way the company does business.

“It will contribute to a more streamlined business process at all three of our companies which, in turn, will translate into a more satisfied customer," comments Karima.
