Dubai, UAE: May XX 2011: Microsoft Gulf today announced that Intercoil International, one of the MENA region’s leading bedding companies, is implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. Intercoil was seeking to accelerate business decision-making by replacing the production and financial legacy applications with Microsoft’s single, integrated platform. Microsoft Dynamics is an adaptable business management solution that helps improve efficiency, allows for better visibility into the entire organization, and reduces IT complexity.
“As a leader in the bedding industry in the MENA region, Intercoil uses state-of-the art technology that helps us to provide our customers with high quality products and services”, said Hassan Al-Hazeem, Managing Director, Intercoil International. “With diversified business units and manufacturing facilities, we were looking for a solution that has the ability to streamline and simplify our daily operations and reduce our overall costs. Microsoft Dynamics AX was the obvious choice for its feature rich functionality and ability to efficiently connect all our departments together economically thereby providing us with an effective framework that enables improved decision-making.”
“Organizations today are facing complex issues where they need to streamline operations and find ways to use resources more efficiently, without incurring extra costs,” added Tamer Elhamy, Dynamics Lead at Microsoft Gulf. “Microsoft Dynamics AX is built for growing manufacturing companies that need to scale their operations seamlessly to new geographies while relying on a single common database. Microsoft Dynamics AX will enable Intercoil to look more deeply into its supply chain, and more intelligently into its decision-making. Intercoil is set to transform the way they work thereby enabling them to offer better customer service and compete more effectively in today’s global marketplace.”
Microsoft Dynamics AX will be deployed by strategic partner Columbus IT Middle East, across several business areas that include Finance, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, HRM, Payroll and Maintenance Management. Columbus IT has worked closely with Intercoil to implement the Microsoft Dynamics AX solution.
Qasid Parker, Chief Operating Officer, Columbus IT MEA and India said: “After a stringent evaluation and thorough analysis, Columbus IT has been chosen to implement this project. Columbus IT with its global delivery capabilities and experienced consulting workforce, will deploy industry best practices to optimize and integrate the flow of information across business areas to provide Intercoil a scalable, robust and adaptable solution to their business needs. We are proud to be associated with Intercoil in this engagement.”
The implementation of a solid technology platform will bring business benefits by allowing Intercoil to automate business processes across the company’s offices, distribution centres and retail locations across the region, improving productivity across the organization. Supply chain management can be streamlined by Dynamics AX, with processes across the supply chain being widely automated, improving planning, optimizing inventory levels, reducing costs and enabling faster response to changes in customer demand. In addition, Dynamics AX delivers value-added technical advancements and out-of-the-box integration with other Microsoft technologies, thereby improving total cost of ownership.
