Qatar Investors Group (QIG), one of the Qatar’s major development catalysts, is preparing for its next stage of growth with the support of cutting-edge information and communication technology (ICT) solutions from SAP.
Implemented by QIG’s IT team and SAP partner Fujitsu Consulting, phase one of the ambitious project is already streamlining and controlling the day-to-day data flow across all QIG entities and ensuring world-class performance in key areas such as financial management, supply chain, sales, distribution, plant maintenance, quality control, production planning and production execution.
For the next step, QIG is set to introduce a host of further innovations, including systems pertaining to human capital management, internal communication and collaboration, document management, analytics, business process modeling (BPM), mobility and balanced scored card (BSC).
Abdulla Bin Nasser Al Misnad, Chairman of the QIG company and SAP project sponsor, said: “QIG’s multi-pronged approach to building Qatar’s future has been tremendously successful to date, but we cannot be complacent and we must seek to improve wherever possible. By teaming up with SAP we will have greater control, greater visibility and greater capacity to deliver all our services and maximize our shareholder value.”
Tamer Amin, QIG Group IT Director and SAP project manager, said: “This is an ongoing process to position QIG as a more desirable business partner with greater perspective, intelligence and efficiency.
SAP will empower QIG not only by leveraging, streamlining and controlling day to day data flow in a profound manner, but also through establishing industry best practices, creating tremendous added value for our stakeholders.”
