Following the reveal of its business transformation roadmap back in 2012, Zahid Group has completed the first leg of its digital transformation journey, in close collaboration with Infor, a provider of business applications for industry.

Ejar, a Zahid Group company, has successfully implemented the first phase of Infor's M3 solution, which combines scalable applications designed specifically for the heavy equipment industry.

Infor's solution includes functions for warehouse mobility, financial accounting, supply chain execution and sales management.

Barig Siraj, CIO, Zahid Tractor and Heavy Machinery, commented: "In collaboration with Infor, we have simplified, standardised, and transformed our previous business practices to achieve Zahid Group's operational excellence goals.

"Given the depth and breadth of Infor's solutions, this is the ideal opportunity for us to transform the entire organisation and become even more competitive through the increased visibility of critical business information, the smooth flow of data between departments, and streamlined business processes across all of our sites."

He added: "As we reach key milestones in our technology journey, Zahid Group is encouraging digital transformation at every level of our business because both we and our customers are seeing tangible benefits."

As per the current strategy and agreement with Infor, the KSA-based group, aims to roll out more companies on the same platform in the coming years, as well as incorporating more solutions from the business application provider.

The group aims to tackle challenges within internal efficiencies, customer service and decision-making processes in the coming years.

Commenting on the ongoing collaboration, Tarik Taman, general manager, IMEA, Infor, shared: "Zahid Group was looking for a competitive edge in an increasingly challenging and competitive market. Not only does Infor's M3 solution provide flexibility to manage mix-mode and complex environments, it also provides the agility and scalability needed to succeed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's dynamic private sector."
