Highbar Technocrat enables business transformation at DOPET

DOHA, May 18, 2020

Highbar Technocrat Limited, the core specialist in driving digital transformation for EPC, contracting, real estate and manufacturing sectors, has successfully transformed Doha Petroleum Construction Company Limited (DOPET) into a future-ready, efficient and integrated enterprise amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
DOPET is one of the largest EPIC contracting companies in Qatar executing projects for oil, gas, chemical, petrochemical, and utilities industries. 
 
DOPET had multiple dispersed systems across the business with disintegrated operations and non-standardised business processes. Existing systems were unable to meet the specific business expectations. To meet the business demands and have better control over business processes, DOPET decided to implement the global leading ERP, SAP S/4 HANA.
 
The industry frontrunner selected Highbar Technocrat along with its local associate iHorizons as its preferred digital partner for end-to-end SAP S/4HANA suite implementation.
 
On the occasion of SAP S4/HANA Go-Live, Jassim Al Mansoori, CEO of Al Ahed holding, spoke of the importance of SAP implementation in line with 3S pillar including strategy, staffing, and systems for the company. Despite the challenging times of Covid-19 and the lockdown of some facilities, he appreciated the efforts of everyone involved in the implementation process within a record period of six months. He also described the implementation as a major milestone within the history of the organisation involving a transformation process.
 
Mohammed Al Saee, General Manager, DOPET expressed that the biggest challenge during the implementation process came in the form of pessimism and apprehensions expressed by some employees. Changing the mindset of people to adapt to the new environment came as another barrier to digitise our operations. He congratulated Highbar Technocrat and its local partner iHorizons team members, who despite the lockdown were available round the clock to support the implementation.
 
Amidst the lockdown, SAP S4/HANA Go-live for DOPET received an overwhelming response from stakeholders joining on video screens. The occasion also cemented the fact that going forward, SAP platforms will expedite the agility of organisation and revitalise the growth strategy of the company. 
 
Since the pandemic struck, the success of the project could have been a challenge, but for the best practices of Highbar Technocrat, on disaster readiness and business continuity planning in all its projects, the entire digital transformation process turned out to be a smooth experience for DOPET ensuring that the project goes live as scheduled.
 
Kaustav Das, Head Global Delivery Highbar Technocrat Limited, said: “We realised early on that the ongoing pandemic would disrupt business operations, which is why we at Highbar promptly embraced pre-emptive measures to ensure business continuity for our esteemed clientele. Keeping our customer-first approach, we swiftly made changes to our delivery mechanism deploying efficient collaborative technology and realigning the internal functions to seamlessly deliver the project. DOPET has become an exemplary case of project execution amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, paving ways for many organisations to replicate and relook at such models and continue with their business transformations journey during the ongoing uncertainty.” - TradeArabia News Service
