Zahid Tractor picks Infor ERP to streamline Saudi operations

JEDDAH, March 8, 2021

Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialised by industry, has announced that Zahid Tractor, a Saudi company that supplies construction machinery and commercial vehicles, is now using its enterprise resource planning (ERP) to gain visibility across all departments. 
The integration of Infor M3 for Equipment allows Zahid Tractor to continue to distinguish its customer-centric offering and commitment to excellence across the Saudi Arabia’s construction, transportation and rental sectors.
Zahid Tractor is the authorised distributor of Caterpillar in its Construction Machinery Division, a partnership that has been in place for 71 years. 
Under its Commercial Vehicles Division, Zahid Tractor is the authorised distributor of Volvo Trucks Group (Volvo Trucks, Renault Trucks and UD Truck), a partnership that has been in place for 41 years.
Zahid Tractor originally depended on a bespoke homegrown enterprise information technology solution. As the company continued to grow, this solution was no longer feasible and could not support Zahid Tractor’s aggressive digital transformation drive. 
With the ambition of streamlining all facets of the business as part of its “Ethos of Excellence” and deploying state-of-the-art technologies (such as business intelligence, artificial intelligence and machine learning), Zahid Tractor commissioned one of the big four consulting firms to oversee the due diligence process in selecting the ideal ERP solution.
Upon completion of the due diligence process, Infor M3 for Equipment (manufacturing, distribution, equipment dealership and rental ERP solutions) was selected as the ideal solution in achieving Zahid Tractor’s ambitious digitalization aspirations. 
Infor M3 met all the requirements stemming from interface-driven initiatives Zahid Tractor has with its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners, which help increase supply chain visibility and improve service levels for their customers, said the statement. 
This was a key prerequisite of the ERP solution, given the scale and importance of Zahid Tractor’s partners including Caterpillar and Volvo Trucks Group.
From equipment lifecycle, employee productivity and rental service to maintenance, field service, refurbishment and OEM, to name but a few, Infor M3 is today transforming key areas of Zahid Tractor’s operations. 
The end-to-end solution with business analytics provides directors, management and front-line teams with valuable data that assists in planning, day-to-day operations, control and decision-making.-TradeArabia News Service
