Dubai, UAE, June 16, 2021: Abu Dhabi Precast, the UAE’s leading precast manufacturer, today announced that it has selected Epicor Software Corporation’s award-winning Cloud ERP solution to address various operational challenges. The company chose Epicor specifically for their precast specific vertical solution which was developed by UAE based Epicor partner Index InfoTech.
Abu Dhabi Precast LLC has been manufacturing precast concrete products since 2001 and is now one of the leading companies in the precast construction industry in the region. They have built an enviable reputation for the quality of services coupled with excellent stakeholder relationships. With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and a team of domain experts, the company is committed to continuous improvement and delivering the highest quality product through process optimisation and implementation of cutting-edge technologies.
Despite the parent group already using another well-known ERP, ADP found it challenging to map their precast specific requirements to a generic manufacturing ERP. Explaining the decision to deploy Epicor ERP, Mr Jushak Rahman Chukkan, Operations Director at ADP, said, “Epicor’s verticalised precast concrete solution, which was designed by their partner Index InfoTech, could cater to almost all our business scenarios out of the box and needed minor customisation. The solution became even more compelling as all features are available on the cloud, a consideration of great significance, particularly in light of the pandemic”.
“Furthermore, Index InfoTech has already established a strong track record of successful implementations of this precast specific solution at several leading manufacturers in the region. This really gave us the confidence that this solution was the right fit for our business”.
By implementing the new concrete and precast specific ERP, ADP will have access to critical features like Revenue Recognition, Scheduling and Material Requirement Planning, Project Management, Transport and Contractor management from day one, as opposed to any other solution that would require heavy customisations to achieve similar functionality. The ability of Epicor to also integrate with design solutions and third-party project management products will ensure that users can hit the ground running as the project goes live.
“Running mostly disparate, legacy ERP systems, our customers were struggling to run processes, achieve efficiency, increase production, or reduce costs, all critical success factors in the manufacturing sector”, added Murtaza Ezzi, CEO of Index Infotech. “Through our membership in the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA), the world’s largest Precast Concrete body headquartered in USA, we have perfected some of the industry best practices and are now able to provide an end-to-end solution that addresses key requirements of the industry. I have no doubt that our solution will give our customers the growth platform they need and I am delighted with the way the concrete industry is responding to our solution”.
Paul Flannery, VP of International Channel Sales at Epicor, commented, “It’s great to see that Abu Dhabi Precast LLC has selected Epicor ERP for this crucial project. Abu Dhabi Precast are in great hands with a wealth of industry expertise from Index, but also Epicor’s vertical specialisation will enable them to realize the full benefits of an Epicor Cloud solution. I look forward to seeing how the project progresses”.
