Sysprove Consulting team were joined by speakers from Norton Rose Fulbright and Tamkeen, to discuss the importance of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) strategies and its impact on businesses.
The event focused on sharing experiences with decision-makers on helping to select, procure and implement ERP systems and increase the success rates of ERP projects. Mr. Ravi Jayasundera, Chief Executive Officer of Sysprove Consulting, deliberated on the ERP systems selection and implementation processes, highlighting the obstacles many companies face in this regard. Mr. Dino Wilkinson, a leading practitioner specialised in technology contracts from international legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright, elaborated on the contracting side and how to best manage the procurement process for success. Concluding the presentation Mr. Esam Hammad, responsible for the Enterprise Relations and Advisory unit at Tamkeen, discussed Tamkeen’s experience with funding ERP systems for SMEs and gave an overview of current support schemes.
Ravi Jayasundera, Chief Executive Officer of Sysprove Consulting, commented on the event saying: “Based on our past consulting assignments we have noticed that organisations do not devote sufficient time and resources to define an ERP strategy in alignment with their business and technology strategies. We wanted to bring together the ERP experts and leading organisations to share their experiences on this topic which is relevant to organisations who are planning on implementing an ERP system or upgrade their current systems.”
Mr. Dino Wilkinson of Norton Rose Fulbright stated: “ERP is a significant facet of business strategy and we are pleased to share our expertise on the legal aspects in technology contracting, how to avoid the common pitfalls and tips on how to negotiate successful deals.”
Tamkeen’s Mr. Esam Hammad remarked: “Tamkeen’s Enterprise Relations and Advisory unit acts as the key link with the business community in Bahrain and provides assistance to companies exploring funding and partnership opportunities. We are glad to share our learnings to support enterprises to acquire business systems, including ERP.”
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are an integrated set of applications that provide support for core organisational processes such as manufacturing, logistics, finance, operations, sales and marketing, and HR. An ERP facilitates the flow of information across all functional areas of an enterprise and enables to streamline business processes, increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve customer service. Sysprove, with its long-term establishment in Bahrain, has assisted a number of organisations in acquiring suitable ERP systems and managing the implementation process. Throughout its seven year operation in Bahrain and the GCC, Sysprove has completed a number of assignments with a variety of both government and private sector organisations.
