Another milestone achieved, QQP Goes Live with FORWARD ERP application

Ali Bin Ali Group’s FORWARD project is moving ahead with confident strides. After completing the intense transformation period, when all business operations in QQP were shut down, the application successfully went live at the QQP division on December 4, 2017. 


Proper planning complemented by team spirit and dedication enabled the QQP staff to take total control of the transition warzone. All staff members of QQP, led by General Manger Mr. Dany Aoun, showed unquestionable resolve and worked for extra hours – and even on the weekend – to cut down the operational down time to 3 days from the initially planned 5 days. 


This was indeed a great achievement for Team QQP, as finishing two days before schedule allowed the division to save a lot of value in the market. Well done, Team QQP!


In the presence of Project Executive Sponsor/ COO ICT Mr. Mohamad A. Ebrik, QQP staff – including Mr. Dany – and the FORWARD team gathered to celebrate the momentous occasion. The Go Live poster was revealed and Mr. Dany made the first ever transaction on the FORWARD system. 


Speaking about the Go Live, Mr. Dany said: “This was achieved only because of the dedication of the entire team. The QQP staff provided accurate data for entry, which made the process smooth. I had complete faith in my team and knew we would succeed, and I am really proud that we could finish it before schedule on December 4 instead of December 6.”


While all the team members had put in their best efforts to make the transition successful, two heroes stood out. Accounts & Commercial Manager of QQP N.C. Shekar and Senior System Analyst Osama Abdul Rahman Hamad were awarded a token of appreciation for their outstanding performance throughout QQP’s journey to transform the future.


QQP is the first from the Ali Bin Ali Group FMCG division to implement the new application, thereby being a pioneer for rest of the FMCG family. With QQP Going Live in its first phase, we marked the 4th and last pilot site of the FORWARD implementation.
