AlMajdouie Group selects Oracle ERP
Saudi trading group to deploy Oracle ERP across all business units
Saudi-based AlMajdouie Group is set to roll out Oracle ERP to govern its operations across its diverse range of business units.
The group, which has businesses in logistics, automotive, manufacturing, food industry, and real estate and investing, employs over 5,000 people in the GCC and worldwide. The company intends to roll out the Oracle solution to give it organisation-wide insight into the state of the business, to make more informed and timely decisions, and to improve work processes.
Oracle partner HCL will carry out the deployment, which will roll out 85 different Oracle modules to cover a range of different functions and business units. The initial deployment will focus on AlMajdouie's logistics and automotive businesses.
Abdullah AlMajdouie, president of AlMajdouie Group, said: "Nowadays, ERP is no longer a luxury choice or shorthanded as an IT system, it is a must have integrated platform solution, it is part of the company's transformation in order to stay at the lead of a developing market."
"During our selection of the system and the business partners, we took serious consideration of the experience, possible growth and support, for our best practices system, we chose Oracle because we found it fits well for our business and overall outcome. The system will help AlMajdouie in making critical decision in very timely manners; it will help in tracking and analyzing our business transactions which will assist to set the business strategy, focus, and direction," added Dudi Hermanto, corporate procurements manager, AlMajdouie Group.
Abdul Rahman Al Thehaiban, vice president, Oracle Middle East & Africa, said: "The innovative idea behind Oracle ERP Suite is to provide businesses of all sizes with an unprecedented single integrated computer-based application across all functional areas to optimize control of information and decision-making processes and drive sustainable growth. Hence, businesses in Saudi Arabia and the region have found in Oracle's ERP a panacea for their IT management. AlMajdouie Group has now joined the long list of premium customers in the region that rely on Oracle IT solutions to meet their business objectives and drive profits to their investments."
