SAP Arabia has completed a deployment of the mySAP business suite for Saudi International Petrochemical Company (SIPCHEM). The ERP system has been implemented to allow SIPCHEM to enable greater collaboration between employees, suppliers, customers and partners.

The project includes financials, human resources, project systems, materials management and plant maintenance modules of mySAP, with sales and distribution, production planning, environment, health and safety, and quality management modules set to be deployed in a second stage that will begin in September 2004.

Ahmed Al Ohali, president of SIPCHEM commented: "SIPCHEM's goal is to grow into a major petrochemical manufacturer within ten years by setting up petrochemical, chemical and other hydrocarbon industries using local resources, infrastructure and expertise. Such an ambition needs to be powered by an efficient and adaptable infrastructure for enabling our core and support business processes. In such a situation advanced ERP solutions are crucial to ensure availability and timely information for effective decision-making. Our choice of mySAP Business Suite was prompted by its advantages over other business solutions and the success stories it has created among many users across the region."

"SAP is the world's recognised leader in providing collaborative business solutions for all types of industries and for every major market; we are proud to be associated with the ERP empowerment at SIPCHEM, a giant corporation in the making," said Essam Enany, President of SAP Arabia.
