RAK Ceramics has agreed with SAP to deploy its software solutionsin its plants to increase its process efficiency.
The two-phase project will see SAP implement a comprehensive suite of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools across the company’s 12 UAE factories, before rolling it out to five international locations.
"Embracing cutting-edge IT solutions from SAP is a major step in making RAK Ceramics run better, improving end-to-end process integration and harmonisation, and driving sustainable business growth," said Khaled Abdulla Yousef, board member, RAK Ceramics.
The deal will see RAK Ceramics migrate away from an Oracle-based platform in order to bolster its ability to improve customer satisfaction, reduce costs for production, procurement and acquisition, improve working capital management and enhance asset utilisation.
Dinesh Mohan, the general manager–SAP Projects, RAK Ceramics, said, "SAP will give the RAK firm big picture it needs to improve transparency, efficiency, productivity and business integration as we strive to consolidate our leadership position and redefine both the scope of our company and the possibilities of our industry."
