Scala Business Solutions saw over 30% plus growths for its enterprise resource planning (ERP) application business in the Middle East last year. While the vendor experienced growth in each of the region’s markets during 2003, Saudi Arabia was the star as it contributed 40% of Scala’s overall business.
“The demand for Scala ERP solutions, particularly the collaborative ERP system iScala, has seen tremendous growth in 2003 and we added a host of new clients to our list of leading corporates in the Kingdom, who have all acclaimed our ERP tools in bringing efficiency and integration in the workplace to boost productivity,” says Samer Shafiq, sales manager for Scala Saudi Arabia.
Key client wins for Scala within the Kingdom during 2003 included Arabian Tile Company Limited (ARTIC), Radisson SAS Riyadh and Yanbu. Scala is hoping to add to this list during the coming months and will leverage the offices it opened in Dammam and Jeddah last year to do so.
“What we are looking at is an estimated growth of 30-40% for ERP solutions in Saudi Arabia alone in 2004, and Scala being one of the undisputed leaders in collaborative ERP solutions, is confident to reap the benefit of this growth,” says Al-Akrabawi.
