Oman’s Asyad Group, which includes many of the country’s leading ports, shipping and logistics companies, has signed an agreement with Gulf Business Machines (GBM Oman) to develop an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that will accelerate the digital transformation of the Group’s administrative processes and enhance its digital and operational capabilities.
This agreement is part of Asyad Group’s efforts to build a comprehensive ERP system that enables optimal resource management and improve administrative services across business units. The new unified ERP system, powered by SAP SE’s cloud technology, will encompass all Asyad business units that had each previously been operating its own independent ERP system. This standardisation is expected to ultimately deliver a number of positive developments impacting customers’ experience and relationship management.
Commenting on the agreement, Asyad Group Chief Technology Officer, Eng. Ghaith Al-Darmaki, said: “Pushing forward with digital transformation and fine-tuning our ERP system will further strengthen Asyad’s technological and operational capabilities as a global logistics provider. This will also open new potential in resource planning, sales, warehousing, supply chain, finance and human resources, while securing the integrated digital solutions that meet our future needs.”
