Gulf Craft deploys business intelligence solutions
Dubai, September 17, 2013
Gulf Craft, a leading UAE-based luxury yachts and boats manufacturer, said it has successfully deployed Focus Softnet’s business intelligence solutions to streamline the company's business processes and enhance operational efficiency.
Apart from being able to integrate Focus i with third party software, Focus Softnet has also developed a customized version of the software for Linux-based environments in order to aid Gulf Craft’s expanded IT automation program.
"Over the last few years, Gulf Craft has grown tremendously with customers across the globe. We have been constantly innovating and customizing our boats and yachts to meet and exceed customers’ expectations," said Erwin Bamps, the chief operating officer of Gulf Craft.
Gulf Craft designs and builds superyachts, quality motor boats and cruisers that meet and exceed international standards of excellence. Over the last three decades, the company has graduated from building small boats to designing and manufacturing bigger and more sophisticated luxury vessels such as its Majesty Yachts and Oryx Sport Cruisers range.
It is now one of the leading boat builders worldwide, building more than 400 vessels annually exporting the majority of its production to Europe, Australia, Asia and across the Mena region, said Bamps.
"More than a decade ago, we were using Focus 5.1 and eventually upgraded to Focus RT in 2007, which helped us streamline our business processes and operations. We have now upgraded to Focus i and in the process we have not only added a new dress to the software or user interface but we have also added brand new features and functionalities," he added.
Sunil Mathew, the executive VP of Focus Softnet, said Gulf Craft had been working on Focus’ solutions for over a decade and was one of its valuable customers.
"We studied their business requirements and customized Focus i to suit their requirements. This implementation helps Gulf Craft access the application from any of their locations across the globe seamlessly over a Linux environment thereby helping the organization reduce costs," he stated.
The solution has helped Gulf Craft achieve greater efficiency in their day to day operations by avoiding delays in retrieving information and posting data online to the ERP from the stores and inventory locations,” added Mathews.-TradeArabia News Service
