His Excellency Shaikh Mohammed bin Khalifa AlKhalifa, Bahrain’s Minister of Oil, recently welcomed representatives of local shipyard ASRY and the global software company, Infor, at the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA) headquarters, prior to an official contract signing between the two parties. As a result Info will implement a new facility-wide Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system for ASRY.
This investment is the latest step in ASRY’s drive towards modernisation. The yard will install the Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise system, streamlining and automating processes across every department in the company. The new system is expected to upgrade digital integration at ASRY to match industry best practice.
“This project is a digital overhaul of the entire company’s processes and procedures,” commented ASRY Managing Director Mazen Matar. “It is the most wide-reaching administrative transformation in the facility’s 44-year history, and after an extensive feasibility investigation we have chosen Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise.”
ASRY completes over 250 projects a year and once this system is deployed, the aim is for these operations will be simplified and digitised, increasing the agility of the business. Mazan adds. “We are the latest in a wave of businesses and government entities tapping into the advanced and secure technology infrastructure being developed and expanded throughout Bahrain, and join an elite list of global firms who have also chosen Infor’s services.”
ASRY and Infor aim to complete the deployment of the first phase of Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise within 11 months. The platform will incorporate all divisions of the yard, including commercial, supply chain, production, finance and general services.
