Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group, one of the largest independent family-owned businesses in the Gulf region, recently selected the next generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP 10. Established in Bahrain in 1890, the Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group has diversified its business interest from trading and shipping to other dynamic industries, including travel, machinery, oil and gas, logistics, specialty chemicals and other retail and commercial activities. The group also operates the largest travel and leisure company in the Middle East.
Epicor will deploy its financial and supply chain management (SCM) modules across three key locations, including Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group's head office in Bahrain and branch offices in UAE and Saudi Arabia. The intent is to integrate all business processes within various departments of Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group and all its subsidiaries. The quote from Maurice Ghattas, Group CEO for Yusuf Bin Ahmed Kanoo Group, needs no further explanation in providing the company’s selection rationale:
“After a thorough evaluation of all the vendors available in the market, we chose the award-winning solution from Epicor because of its rich global functionality built on agile next generation visionary technology, device and platform independence, as well as its low total cost of ownership and high return on investment. In addition, Epicor ERP has successfully been integrated in many other large multi-billion dollar corporations in the Middle East, proving the efficiency of the solution.”
