UAE retail conglomerate BinHendi Enterprises today announced it has gone live with an SAP HANA-based solution, in partnership with systems integrator CSC.

The group is in the midst of expanding its retail and hospitality divisions and took the decision to adopt SAP HANA Cloud Platform "to support its operations more effectively", according to a statement from BinHendi.

 "SAP is designed to provide BinHendi with leading business solutions such as improved sales forecasting and stock replenishment, effective customer service, to optimise supply chain, support daily operations, and provide accurate analytics and reports that will support management when making important decisions," said Steven Kruger, acting CEO of BinHendi Enterprises.

"Various departments and functions within BinHendi Enterprises will also benefit from the new SAP system including finance, human resources, sales and distribution and stock management, creating a business environment that is properly governed, accurately monitored and thoroughly controlled."  

"Today's launch takes our partnership with BinHendri Enterprises to the next level, recognising that BinHendi is a regional leader in the adoption of the latest cloud-based technology solutions," said Tayfun Topkoc, managing director, SAP UAE.

"Our SAP HANA platform will serve as the engine for driving growth across BinHendi's industries, innovating their back-end processes while also enhancing their customer experiences. By partnering with CSC, we are ensuring that BinHendi will have best practices in delivering on their transformational journey."

The "SAP HANA Cloud Platform" is an in-memory cloud platform for today's increasingly networked, mobile, social and data-driven world. Its powerful applications deliver real-time insights to drive more effective and timely decision making and to dramatically accelerate analytics, business processes, sentiment data processing and predictive capabilities to manage organizations on a day- to-day basis more effectively.
