Al Jaber Group rolls out Oracle-JDEdwards payroll
Gulf Business Machines has completed an Oracle-JDEdwards payroll and HR implementation for the Al Jaber Group
Abu Dhabi-based Al Jaber Group has implemented the human resources and payroll modules of Oracle-JDEdwards EnterpriseOne.
Al Jaber Group is a privately-held organisation that oversees the operations of a number of different companies involved in construction, development, heavy lifting and logistics. The group is already using EnterpriseOne software, and the new solution was focused on upgrading existing payroll systems.
The implementation was carried out by Gulf Business Machines (GBM), and – according to a statement released by GBM – is one of the largest payroll systems in the region for the Al Jaber Group.
“GBM has just helped us pull off a very successful payroll implementation project of the scale and scope rarely matched in the Middle East. In fact, this is one of the largest Oracle-JDEdwards based payroll system implementations in the world,” said Balashankar Das, group CIO at Al Jaber Group.
“We turned to GBM since the system’s developer was unable to support localisation efforts of JDEdwards EnterpriseOne’s HRMS module. We firmly believed that GBM could deliver desired results and they did, in spectacular fashion,” he continued.
As the United Arab Emirates’ largest private sector employer, Al Jaber Group’s payroll needs are significant. During the course of the project, payroll processing for more than 37,000 employees from the Abu Dhabi-based organisation’s various companies had to be setup and put through its paces.
“The GBM team’s adaptation to the Al Jaber work culture was a significant contributor to the success of the project. We now have a stable and robust payroll system that was implemented with zero code changes,” added Das.
