Infor has announced that ASRY, a maritime repair and fabrication facility based in Bahrain, has signed a contract to implement a new state-of-the-art facility-wide enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise, to spearhead its Digital Transformation.
Established in 1977, ASRY handles the repair and conversion of ships, rigs and naval vessels, in addition to offering fabrication and engineering services covering onshore and offshore industrial components.
Infor’s solutions will help ASRY improve the quality of service for its global customer base and help it tap into a global marine port and service market that is expected to reach US$97 billion by 2025, according to research from Lucintel.
“As part of ASRY’s modernisation, this project is a digital overhaul of the entire company’s processes and procedures,” said Mazen Matar, MD, ASRY. “It is the most wide-reaching administrative transformation in the facility’s 44-year history, and after an extensive feasibility investigation we have chosen Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise. ASRY completes over 250 projects per year across four industrial sectors and once this cloud-based system is deployed, these operations will be simplified and digitised, bringing agility to the business and ultimately streamlining our ability to serve customers, maximise ASRY’s contribution to the Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030 and boost the region’s maritime sector.
“ASRY’s use of AWS for the new ERP also creates further integration with Kingdom’s burgeoning ICT sector. We are the latest in a wave of businesses and government entities tapping into the advanced and secure technology infrastructure being developed and expanded throughout Bahrain, and join an elite list of global firms who have also chosen Infor’s services,” Matar added.
Amel Gardner, Vice President, Infor MEA, said: “Infor helps organisations improve productivity, efficiency and visibility across their operations, enabling management to make better-informed choices. We are thrilled to be working with ASRY on its Digital Transformation and we look forward to helping it achieve its business goals in a dynamic industry.”
ASRY and Infor aim to complete the deployment of the first phase of Infor CloudSuite Industrial Enterprise within 11 months. The platform will incorporate all divisions of the yard, including commercial, supply chain, production, finance and general services.Click below to share this article
