The implementation of Infor CloudSuite Equipment to increase organisational efficiency so the manufacturer can scale business to meet strong industry demand
Cloud specialist Infor has announced that Saudi Diesel Equipment Co (SDEC) is migrating its existing deployment of Infor M3 on-premises to Infor CloudSuite Equipment. The move will enable SDEC to improve and automate business processes, particularly for its remote field service workforce.
The move to the cloud forms part of SDEC’s wider digital transformation project, Digi-Step, and will help the company scale its operations to support strong demand for equipment, machinery, and power generators across a range of sectors in Saudi Arabia, a statement noted.
Mega-projects such as the new city of Neom, Medina Metro project, and Qiddiya, an entertainment zone in Riyadh, are driving demand for all types of construction solutions and accessories, the company stated.
In June 2022, JLG expanded its augmented reality capabilities and, in August 2022, Leica Geosystems launched its safety awareness solution for construction sites.
Saudi Arabia’s diesel generator market is expected to register a compound annual growth rate of more than 5% from 2021 to 2026, driven by demand for uninterrupted power from a range of sectors including construction, transport, oil & gas, and retail, according to research from MarkNtel Advisors.
“To keep expanding to support our customers and Saudi Vision 2030, SDEC needed to transform its ability to manage sales, business processes and supply chain management,” said Ahmed AlKooheji, Director of Corporate Services at SDEC.
“By migrating to the cloud with Infor, we will gain agility and improve visibility across the business, enabling us to seamlessly manage multiple complex projects. This will improve outcomes for customers while enhancing the way we allocate resources. The solution also will create a solid foundation for our growth by streamlining vital business processes and allowing us to transform into a truly smart business,” he concluded.
In October 2022, Doosan unveiled its ‘all-in-one platform’ for smart construction.
