NEFC Group, a UAE-based holding company that operates dealerships supplying machinery and heavy equipment, has deployed Infor M3 to help raise efficiency and agility across operations and gain greater control of its business.

NEFC, which has ten subsidiaries in countries in the horn of Africa, including Ethiopia, Djibouti, South Sudan, and Somalia, has more than 1,000 employees across its operations and its Dubai-based headquarters, and covers major brands across sectors including construction, power generation, automotive, and agriculture.

Since going live with Infor M3 in September, NEFC has gained full visibility of its operations including its inventory, while also automating processes including purchase orders and invoicing. The company processes thousands of transactions each month and, at any one time, it has some 28,000 items of stock.

The data analytics component of the dealer management system means that NEFC is now able to collect and analyze its data, helping it better understand its own business and its markets.

Kerry Koutsikos, Infor vice president and GM for Middle East and Africa, said: “By deploying Infor M3 through Infor’s global professional services team, NEFC is experiencing the power of our industry-specific ERP solutions to help organizations with complex businesses across multiple jurisdictions to digitize their operations and become smarter. We look forward to a long-term relationship with NEFC as it continues its journey of improvement.”

Hussain Alamoudi, CEO of NEFC Group, said: “By using Infor M3, we have transformed NEFC’s operations, making previously complex, labor-intensive tasks simple and easy to execute with minimal use of human resources.

“In addition, we are now gaining valuable insights about our business thanks to the system’s analytics capabilities. This all translates into a more efficient operation and means we can allocate resources to where they are needed most, which helps us serve our customer better. This level of automation is also key as we continue to expand our operations and services.”
