Environment and waste management company, Bee'ah has become one of the first government entities in the region to adopt SAP mobile solutions.

The company, which is based in Sharjah, will initially deploy SAP's mobile-enabled ERP, to streamline operations and automate key processes.

"Bee'ah is proud to be leading the way for waste management in the region, and we are always looking for new ways to improve our performance and future prospects," said His Excellency Salim Al Owais, chairman of Bee'ah.

"As the region's population continues to grow and its businesses continue to boom, we must be able to scale to cope with considerable waste management challenges. At the heart of our strategy is a desire to dramatically transform communities across the region for the better. SAP gives us a new focus, drive and a data-inspired confidence to move forward."

The ERP solution is intended to provide analytical insight and increase operational flexibility, and will be used to automate key processes including finance, human resources, sales and customer relationship management.

A further phase will incorporate SAP's industry-specific waste management software, to potentially include municipal billing solutions, route and district management, real-time mobile order management, as well as process integration for improved speed and reduced costs.

"Bee'ah continues to change perceptions about sustainable development," said Khaled Al Huraimel, group chief executive officer, Bee'ah. "Through adopting a world-class approach to waste management we have shown the true, enduring value of resource optimisation. Whether removing huge volumes of waste out of the equation or educating the local community about the four R's - reduce, re-use, recycle and recover - there is much work to be done. SAP gives us an operational edge to align ambition with tangible action."

Sam Alkharrat, managing director, SAP MENA, said: "This is the first time a waste management company in the region has adopted SAP's solutions and, as we know from our work in this industry across the world, the results are likely to prove extremely influential.

"Against the backdrop of accelerated, resource-intensive growth in the region, Bee'ah is an inspiring and increasingly vital company. Driven by visionary leadership, the business has undergone remarkable growth in recent years, and SAP is delighted to support its next chapters of success."
