Insha’a Holding Company, one of the region’s largest manufacturers of raw materials has deployed the Sage Abra human resources management solution Sage Abra HRMS and Sage Line 500 enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to centralise the administration of its four subsidiary operations.

The holding company, which is owned by the A’ayan Leasing and Investment Company in Kuwait, has 300 employees based in its four subsidiaries: Bubiyan Ready Mix, Bubiyan Aggregate, Al Fadalah United Co for Trading & Contracting and Building Systems.

It will use the technology to establish a single system for the unified administration of the company. This will include centralising its human resources (HR) and payroll operations across the group using the Sage Abra solution and ending its current practice of having disparate reporting systems for each subsidiary.

“Currently, we have on our payroll over 300 employees spread across Insha’a Holding Company head office and the four subsidiary companies,” said Haitham Al-Refaei, the chief operations officer of Insha’a. Al-Refaei said that each subsidiary of Insha’a had previously been using a different reporting system, which was a time-consuming task.

“Due to the company’s rapid expansion, it has become inevitable to have a central systems linking the subsidiaries and the head office,” he claimed.

“We needed a software system that can quickly be implemented, customised, adapts to our business processes, supports multiple organisations within our holding company, and which will have the capacity to address all our IT requirements,” he added.

Al Mulla InfoTech Solutions, a subsidiary of Bader Al Mulla & Bros. Co W.L.L, will deploy the technology for the company which has purchased licenses for 50 users at its four sites.

Ausaf Usmani, manager of Al Mulla InfoTech Solutions said the system will allow Insha’a to better access company data, allowing it to make faster managerial decisions.

This would allow Insha’a to significantly improve its resource deployment, and hence revenue generation, because of reduction in procedure durations, Usmani went on to say.
