Infor has announced that Saudi Diesel Equipment is migrating its existing deployment of Infor M3 on-premises to Infor CloudSuite Equipment, enabling it to improve and automate business processes — particularly for its remote field service workforce — raise efficiency, and boost its ability to innovate. The move to the cloud forms part of SDEC’s wider digital transformation project, Digi-Step, and will be invaluable as the company scales its operations to support strong demand for equipment, machinery, and power generators across a range of sectors in Saudi Arabia.
SDEC had been using an on-premises version of Infor M3 as its ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution for more than 12 years, but wanted to migrate to Infor CloudSuite Equipment powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and expand its use of Infor solutions to reduce complexity, and increase efficiency, visibility and its ability to innovate and help future proof its business. The company will benefit from using Infor’s OS cloud operating platform while also consolidating its processes around a more comprehensive CloudSuite solution, which includes the Infor Birst business intelligence data analytics solution.
“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.”
