Bolero MENA has been appointed by CompuMe to introduce an electronic documentation system for its various stores across the region. The project, expected to go live in early 2003, involves the installation of the system, which aims to create a paperless document transfer for CompuMe stores and its community of suppliers.

Hussein Rifai, CEO of Bolero MENA, said: “CompuMe’s decision to migrate to electronic documentation is a far-sighted move that is bound to bring rich dividends in the short and long-term future. will bring all CompuMe stores online for full utilisation of the bolero platform and allow the management to view the procurement and inventory status across its stores. It will also connect CompuMe to its suppliers and trade partners, in order to facilitate full electronic correspondence and document exchange, without manual intervention.
“The result will be increased efficiency and enhanced productivity through online documentation, without the need to print, fax or courier documents. Bolero MENA and CompuMe are currently working closely to implement the Bolero network by creating the required base to send all documents directly from the back office system to through ChinaSystems integration software. We will also assist CompuMe in analysing the current procurement and logistics processes and recommend its re-engineering to suit Bolero’s straight through processing capabilities. The net result will be reduced operational costs and elimination of follow-up processes for purchase orders and trade documentation.”

Dikran Tchablakian, CEO, CompuMe, said: “CompuMe is fully aware of the crucial importance of electronic document exchange in today’s web-driven business scenario and was one of the first companies in the Middle East to use Bolero technology on a limited scale. We have chosen to help us migrate to more secure and integrated documentation exchange systems. As a growing chain of IT mega-stores, it is appropriate that we adopt paperless trading, first as a reflection of our forward-looking approach and also as an essential step to keep pace with the changing trends of conducting business. We expect gains on different fronts due to the Bolero system, including lower operational costs, saving in time and effort in addition to further growth due to faster processing of documents.”
