Al Khorayef Group revamps supply chain

Oracle Middle East, today announced that Riyadh-based Al Khorayef Group, a major manufacturing and trading vendor of agricultural and industrial equipment has implemented the Oracle E-Business Suite, which includes its Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Enterprise Project Management modules.

Oracle Middle East, today announced that Riyadh-based Al Khorayef Group, a major manufacturing and trading of agricultural and industrial equipment vendor, has implemented the Oracle E-Business Suite, including Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Oracle Enterprise Project Management.

As a rapidly expanding business, Al Khorayef needed to invest in a tier-one application to support its current business activities and scale to meet future growth. In addition, the group required a solution that could readily integrate with a complex global supply chain.

Al Khorayef aggregates the supply chain with suppliers to meet the specific requirements of each customer for its trading and manufacturing activities. Since, every customer requirements vary, that requires that Al Khorayef manage projects with vastly different packaging requirements, volumes, inventory forecasting, timelines and engineering costs. This extremely variant business creates workflows of a scale and complexity that home grown or best of breed applications cannot handle says the Saudi company.

“The new SCM provides us with a robust and scalable solution that enables complete supply chain visibility to our customers, partners and internal operations staff. After the implementation our customers know that the company is prepared to grow and continue to meet their changing needs,” says Sheikh Mohamed of the Al Khorayef Group.

Al Khorayef based in Riyadh is a diversified group involved in manufacturing and trading, which includes oil industry steel pipes, irrigation systems, water pumps, right angle gear drives, polyethylene lined tubulars and engineered products. The group also has the largest Saudi Arabian market share in heavy equipment spare parts distribution.

“By modernising its infrastructure and deploying a progressive and totally seamless application environment, Al Khorayef is ensuring that it will be able to continue and expand on its mission to finance major projects and developing companies in the petro sector,” says Abdul Rahman Al Dossary , MD of Oracle Saudi Arabia.
