Monday, January 19th, 2009

Riyadh, KSA, January 2009: Grihasoft successfully delivered content harmonization project for Almarai. Almarai is the largest integrated dairy foods company in the world and its network extends throughout the Arabian Peninsula, leading and influencing the agricultural, dairy processing and food distribution industries.

Almarai has implemented a cutting-edge ERP solution. For a well managed company like Almarai, it was not difficult to realize the importance of transactional data quality for the success of their new IT system. Grihasoft was contracted by Almarai for improvising the existing MRO (indirect) inventory information. Grihasoft had a challenging task of cleaning and enriching the descriptions for about 52,000 line items that form the MRO inventory. The data had to be aggregated from several locations of Almarai’s widespread dairy network in the peninsula. Grihasoft deployed its content Engineers onsite at Almarai location to physically verify certain Equipments and spares for data collection. Once the data was aggregated, it was cleansed, classified and enriched by Grihasoft domain experts working onsite using Grihasoft proprietary data cleansing tools. The cleansed data was syndicated to ERP format and loaded successfully, in-time for the Almarai’s internal Go-live date.

Speaking on the success of the project, Almarai’s SAP manager Mr.Amit Chakravarty said “Almarai has implemented the new system in support of its continued growth and to better manage company performance. The major factor for its success was data quality. We were sure from the beginning that we needed external expertise to handle this. Grihasoft was our first choice. The go-live went smoothly with no disruption to our business, and we are pleased with the responsiveness and professionalism of Grihasoft team. They have performed very well”
