Al Maha Petrolium: Oman Firm Increases Productivity, Cuts Costs With Business Management Tool
Oman-based Al Maha Petroleum Products Company is a pioneering distributor of refined products, with an extensive country-wide retail network. The company wanted to gain visibility across processes, enhance the efficiency of operations, and ensure effective decision-making, but its disparate IT systems made this a challenge. Al Maha partnered with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Infosys, replacing its business management systems with a single integrated enterprise resource planning solution powered by Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, and consolidating data from 163 filling stations in a single database. This provided Al Maha with a 360-degree view of its distributed operations and aligned its IT infrastructure with the business. It has improved productivity by 30 per cent and decreased manual effort by 25 to 30 per cent.
