Dubai, August 14, 2007
Epicor Software Corporation has announced enhancing its presence in the oilfields services sector as Abu Dhabi-based AlMansoori Specialized Engineering selects Epicor for its enterprise resource planning (ERP) services.
The ERP solution will be implemented by International Agencies Company Limited (Intercol), Epicor’s channel partner for the UAE, Bahrain and Qatar.
Elaborating on the relationship with the regional oilfield services leader, established in the UAE in 1977, senior officials of Dubai-based Epicor Software in the Middle East said the win boosts its growing presence in the oil and gas sector across the region.
“Over the years we have demonstrated proven expertise in providing ERP solutions to the oil and gas sector,” said Basil Daniells, regional sales director for Epicor Middle East, North Africa and India.
“The addition of AlMansoori Specialized Engineering further expands our presence in the energy sector, a key economic segment in the region, particularly in the GCC countries.”
Al Mansoori will implement Epicor iScala across the business process spectrum of the company to achieve reduced costs and increased efficiency, and to drive growth across the value chain targeting better utilisation of resources to shore up the company’s bottom-line.
Epicor iScala is a comprehensive end-to-end suite of proven industry-specific solutions for the global midmarket enterprise.
From customer relationship management (CRM) and service management to financial and supply chain management (SCM), iScala provides adaptable and agile solutions for real-time enterprises, helping them address important business challenges, today and in the future.
“Epicor has over 350 installations in the region which includes many prominent companies from the energy sector. Al Mansoori has opted for the full ERP suite spanning financials, human resources and payroll, logistics (purchase, sales and inventory), project and services management, business intelligence and CRM. We believe Al Mansoori’s corporate-wide implementation will lead to higher growth prospects through streamlined business processes and reduced redundancy,” Daniells said.
Commenting on choosing Epicor as the company’s ERP solution partner, Nabil Alalawi, managing director of AlMansoori Specialized Engineering said: “We are convinced that Epicor iScala as an industry-leading, scaleable ERP solution will bring better end-to-end business process efficiency which is very important to us at a time of accelerated growth.
“We are confident that Epicor iScala will also support our expansion plans which are on the anvil as we find the economic climate conducive to augmented business growth.”
K Sundararaman, Intercol’s general manager, Science and Industry Division said: “We feel privileged to be awarded this prestigious project and look forward to this partnership with Al Mansoori. Our team will work closely with the Al Mansoori team to ensure the success of the project.”
