“The idea behind the project was to develop a new IT environment to automate the group’s operations and procedures. Setting up of ERP on IBM hardware provided a level of system functionality that could immediately improve inventory management and the expandability and flexibility to support Al Khayyat’s growth. Equally important was STS’ excellent track record in implementing IBM’s solutions to meet the endless demands of business clients in the market. ” said Taher Al Husseini, General Manager of Khayyat Group.
