Bahrain Maritime and Mercantile International (BMMI) is to implement an Oracle e-Business Suite to help strengthen its position as a regional and global player in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and third party logistics (3PL) arenas.

The supply chain management planning and execution will handle everything from interaction with suppliers to delivery to clients.

The solutions will give BMMI full visibility, management and reporting capability on the performance of each supply chain movement. In doing so it can reduce waste and inefficiency.

Oracle provided database migration from standard edition to enterprise edition, database enterprise licenses, application server enterprise edition, express server, as well as ERP/CRM developers and test user IDs.

"As our business grows, our focus is on an enterprise application with a strong reliable database, and an application server to provide performance for our regional and global presence in countries like Djibouti, Qatar, and Kuwait," said Mike Kruger, CIO at BMMI.

The implementation, which is being undertaken by Satyam, is expected to finish by June 2007.

Arun Khehar, vice president, retail, private and manufacturing at Oracle MEA, said: "BMMI had been operating on supply chain and logistics systems that were installed when the business was much smaller.

"They therefore needed a warehouse management system that would enhance growth and performance. A good warehouse system was crucial to the company's future development."
