Saudi construction company Gulf Consolidated Contractors Co. (GCC) is set to boost its business processes with the deployment of SAP Business One.

The construction company, which was formed by the merger of FAFCO, Petcon and the construction arms of Abdullah H. Al-Shuwayer, Al-Tamimi and Al-Jabr Trading, intends to deploy SAP to integrate and enhance core business processing.

SAP's Business One, which includes customization for the construction sector, is designed for SMEs and branch operations, and has been created to allow for rapid implementation and faster return on investment. For GCC, the solution will cover business areas including project management, procurement and financial control, environmental compliance, quality management and overall business transparency.

"As Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region continue their rapid and visionary evolution, the construction industry laying the foundations for this bold new future must adapt to keep pace," said Waleed A Abubshait, president, GCC.

"This is a big challenge, but one we are well-placed to meet as long as we never lose sight of innovation in all its forms - most particularly when it comes to IT. To this end, SAP will be a vital ally as we move forward, providing us with a peerless digital platform - be it on site, in the cloud or on our mobile devices - that enables end-to-end visibility, drives sustainable business practices and dramatically enhances acuity for swifter decision-making," he added.

Sam Alkharrat, managing director, SAP MENA: "GCC boasts a remarkable half a century of continuous improvement and an unassailable track record of fuelling Saudi Arabia's infrastructural development. The company's determination to continually benchmark against the very best and adopt the latest IT technologies is laudable and serves as a tremendous example not only to Saudi Arabia, but also the world's construction industry as a whole. By using SAP solutions to enhance its processes, empower its employees and maximize value wherever possible, GCC's future is hugely exciting and something we are genuinely honoured to be part of."
