Saudi Arabian Sahara Petrochemicals Company is to implement an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution from SAP.

Under the implementation project which the company has named ‘Al-Nufud', the software solution provider will supply the Riyadh-based firm with various modules including human resources and financial reporting as well as a dedicated solution for the petrochemical industry.

Established in 2004, Sahara Petrochemicals Company is a holding company with approximately five different activities. Instead of setting up different services for each entity, the ERP solution enables services to be shared helping Sahara to run its operations more efficiently. It will also help the company to expand more rapidly as it grows its business.

"Sahara's Al-Nufud project represents the very positive transformation we are witnessing among many companies in Saudi Arabia, a shift toward best-practice in the way they operate," Essam Enany, president SAP Arabia commented on the deal, terms of which were not disclosed.

The solution will be implemented by Saudi-based Zamil Tata Information Services together with Indian firm INCAT.
