IIT encourages ERP spending

The logical course of action during an economic downturn is to stop spending money and conserve resources instead. However, International Information Technology (IIT) is encouraging quite the opposite.

The logical course of action during an economic downturn is to stop spending money and conserve resources instead. However, International Information Technology (IIT) is encouraging quite the opposite as it touts its enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) applications throughout Bahrain and the rest of the Middle East.According to Redha Rajab, CEO of IIT, local organisations actually have to spend money to save money, as the long term benefits of deploying technologies such as ERP and CRM far outweigh the initial outlay.“Managing businesses in bad economy conditions [requires] cost control, efficient systems, efficient people to deploy them, and efficient people to use them… IIT is offering solutions that allow companies to [do this], he observes.At the heart of IIT’s ERP and CRM drive is software from Microsoft Great Plains and FrontRange Solutions. Rajab says that “IIT is offering solutions that allow companies to choose just what they need from a multitude of modules covering every aspect: sales and marketing, customer service and support, project accounting, financials, manufacturing, among other vital ones.”Furthermore, the company intends to work strategically with local users that opt for ITT’s technology and create what Rajab call “an excellent recipe for recovery.”
