Aramco entrepreneur arm to run Sage X3
Wa'ed selects Sage X3 business management solution to streamline operations
Wa'ed, the entrepreneurship arm of Saudi Aramco, has selected Sage X3 Business Management Solution for enterprises, to help it manage growing demand for its services.
Wa'ed offers funding, incubation, coaching, and workshops, and other resources and expertise for entrepreneurs and business owners in Saudi Arabia. As Wa'ed's popularity and reach has increased, the organisation decided it required a business management solution to streamline processes.
Sage X3 is intended to reduce redundancy and inefficiencies across the business functions at Wa'ed, leading to a more comprehensive overview of the business.
Wa'ed will deploy the full Sage X3 suite including Sage X3 Finance, Sage X3 People, and Sage X3 Distribution. The deal was signed with Sage and its exclusive distributor, Josor. Implementation will be carried out by GulfNet Solutions and Providian.
"To efficiently tackle our increasing clientele and staff we knew we had to invest in a state-of-the-art business management solution. After consulting with Josor and receiving briefings on the applicable Sage solutions, we knew that we had a quality product that would meet our current needs and can be scaled according to future requirements. We are excited to use the best Business Management Solution available on the cloud in the market and look forward to a coherent and easy to use system," commented Sami Al-Khursani, managing director, Wa'ed.
"Providing the industry best to meet Wa'ed requirements has been a great opportunity to display the quality, efficiency, and thoroughness of Sage solutions. We are confident that the Sage X3 platform that Wa'ed has chosen will address the current issues the organisation was facing and be capable of handling organisational growth," said Abdulmohsen Albadr, founder & CEO, Josor.
"At Sage, we are proud to support and serve Small & Medium Businesses (S&MBs) as business builders that fuel the world economy. We firmly believe that the S&MBs sector is the future for economic growth around the world. We salute the Saudi government for recognising this fact and we are proud to support the plans for the sector's development in the economic policy Vision 2030. We are truly glad to be a part of the impetus to drive change and economic development in Saudi Arabia through Aramco's entrepreneurship arm, Wa'ed. It is an honour to be part of this project," added Keith Fenner, vice president Sage Enterprise Africa and Middle East.
