FORWARD moves a step ahead, goes live at ABA Medical

Adding yet another feather in the cap of the super-efficient FORWARD initiative, the Supply Chain Management of Ali Bin Ali Medical went live with ERP application on Monday, November 13. The FORWARD team and ABA Medical’s staff gathered at the Head Office to flag off the journey.


The meeting mainly aimed at addressing the Division’s Go Live preparation, Go Live and post-Go Live activities. The Medical team was also briefed on the magnitude of the project and the effect it would have on business processes.


The Medical Division was chosen to be one of the four pilot sites for this challenging project because it is a unique business model in ABA with a diligent and dedicated workforce that is up to the challenge.


Introduction of the system is a major transformation for the Medical Division and it will automate procedures – thereby making operations more efficient. It was a monumental challenge to implement the system.


General Manager of ABA Medical Mr. Zuhdi Al-Jaouni played a key role in the initiative and left no stone unturned to facilitate the process and properly channel the efforts of the team to ensure success. He was very aptly supported by Assistant General Manger Mr. Mamdouh A Al-Yazouri.


Speaking about the new application, Mr. Jaouni said, “The ERP system will benefit ABA Medical in more ways than one. The initial days may not be very smooth but once we all get used to it, there will be no looking back. ERP will change the way we operate our business.”


As with previous divisions, a support structure has been set up to make the transition process smooth. Subject matter experts, super users and consultants are working with the Intrasoft team to make sure that the system is working smoothly and all business transactions are running correctly and efficiently. 


Congratulations to the FORWARD team for yet another achievement and wish you success for rest of the ERP journey.
