eSense Develops Stellar EPM Solution for Al Rajhi Bank
eSense, the leading provider of IT-based business solutions, recently partnered with the Saudi-based Al-Rajhi Bank to develop an advanced enterprise project management solution for the bank’s head office in KSA.
The Microsoft Office Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution is an end-to-end collaborative project and portfolio environment implemented by eSense to help the bank gain visibility, insight, and control across all work, enhancing decision-making, improving alignment with business strategy, maximizing resource utilization, and measuring and helping to increase operational efficiency.
Al Rajhi is the largest network of Islamic banks worldwide in terms of market value and total profits. The bank requires an advanced enterprise project management (EPM) solution to effectively manage its workload. eSense was chosen among several other IT solutions companies to develop the solution due to the company’s longstanding experience and successes in the field. The company’s KSA office, eSense Arabia, will handle the implementation.
Al Rajhi has been successfully using Microsoft EPM 2003, integrated with Microsoft’s SharePoint Server to facilitate the management and execution of projects and the provision of various reports to the various executive levels within Al Rajhi. eSense’s solution is built on the newer Microsoft EPM 2007, which will help the bank overcome some major shortcomings of the previous version.
Commenting on this collaboration, Mohannad Itayem, General Manager of eSense Arabia, said: “We are honored that an organization as established as Al Rajhi Bank chose eSense to implement such an important project. As we have implemented several similar solutions to large-scale organizations in the past, we are certain that the new Microsoft EPM will greatly ease the project management and monitoring tasks for Al Rajhi.”
