The Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development intends to streamline its operations with the deployment of Oracle’s E-Business Suite. The non-profit organisation will deploy the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to manage its financial, human resources and procurement functions.

When implemented the software will enable the Qatar Foundation to make informed decisions and reduce administrative expenses.

“Because the Qatar Foundation supports such diverse activities and projects, until now it’s been a challenge to reconcile our accounts quickly and receive a timely financial snapshot for the group. In addition, the foundation wanted to migrate our human resources approach to a self-service model that empowers employees to perform their own administrative processes via the internet,” says Dr. Saif Al-Hajari, interim managing director of the Qatar Foundation.

“By integrating the Qatar Foundation’s financial and human resources systems, we’re reducing our paper-based processes and decreasing expenses as a result. The foundation selected Oracle based on the integrated nature of its platform, and the scalability Oracle can provide for our anticipated growth,” adds Dr. Saif.

Two key areas of the project will be the deployment of the Purchasing and Order Management modules of the E-Business Suite. The foundation will use the software to process requisitions, purchase orders, RFQs, quotations, and receipts quickly.

The project will connect 10 Qatar Foundation offices to the Oracle software. The project is being implemented by Oracle partner, Hyperlink.
