Dubai, UAE, April 04, 2016

Major Construction Businesses Expect to Boost Growth with Modern ERP TechnologyEpicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced that Gemini Technical Industries (GTI) and Sahara Trading Company have both selected the next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP, to improve key business processes within their respective organisations.

GTI, the manufacturing arm of Gemini Building Materials (GBM), is one of the leading importers and traders of building materials in the GCC region. Sahara Trading is the regional provider of top-of-the-line products for the construction sector.

The two companies are set to integrate the user-friendly ERP solution into their operations to enable further business growth. Upon full implementation, both will effectively integrate and enhance their processes and other aspects of their operations -- including procurement, assessment, distribution, warehousing and logistics, sales, manufacturing, and project management.

With the support of Index InfoTech, an authorized value added reseller in the UAE, Epicor ERP was selected for both businesses due to its flexibility. GTI and Sahara Trading also cited the system’s easy deployment and ability to handle expanding workloads as key to their ERP choice -- qualities that will support the businesses as they continue to grow in the region.

Utilising GBM’s experience and expertise at its Abu Dhabi-based manufacturing facility, GTI relies on state-of-the-art machinery to efficiently address its clients’ unique building requirements. Vineesh Babu, Director for GTI, explained how Epicor ERP will support the business’s operations, “The integrated Epicor ERP solution is a good fit to our business requirements and we will be implementing the technology in one of our main offices to achieve a more efficient workflow. We are confident that the Epicor ERP system will significantly help us reach our overall goals, resulting in improved efficiency and profitability.”

Sahara Trading, established in 2001, provides the construction sector with a diverse line of products, including windows patch and sliding door fittings, stainless steel door handles, handrail accessories, glass partitions, shower accessories, and glass tools.

Mohannad Saleh, Internal Audit and Finance Head for Sahara Trading, said, “We chose Epicor ERP because it can be easily tailored to meet our objectives and further improve our operations. The advanced software will integrate our complex processes, thus giving our employees ready access to critical information in real time. This will help us to make necessary actions and continuously live up to our brand commitment to exceed our customers’ expectations. The ERP solution will be rolled out across our multiple branches in the UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman to streamline our operations. We look forward to working closely with Epicor and Index InfoTech during the implementation.”

Sabby Gill, Executive Vice President for Epicor International, concluded, “By selecting Epicor ERP, GTI and Sahara Trading will experience enhanced visibility across all of their operations, giving them a single-pane view of the entire supply chain. The businesses will be able to identify spikes in demand, resourcing issues and external trends, allowing them to plan accordingly, make better decisions and remain competitive in this fast-paced market. We look forward to seeing these businesses use Epicor ERP to continue their successful business growth.”
