September 21, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Dubai, - SNS, a leading supply chain services provider, announced today the successful implementation of the integration project, using Boomi integration tool, between Infor WMS and the SAP ERP at Areej, the leading manufacturer of vegetable oils & derivatives in Oman.

Areej has recently implemented the SAP ERP at their company. In an effort to retain the Infor WMS solution previously provided by SNS, the decision makers at Areej have decided to use SNS’ expertise in systems integration in order to integrate both systems.

The complexity of the SAP ERP resulted in the need for 12 integration touch points including, among others, PO Import, Receipt Confirmation, SO Import, and Quality touch points such as hold management and stock reconciliation. SNS previous expertise in integrating ERPs to WMS includes integration projects with the most common ERP systems available in the market: Oracle ERP, JD Edwards, Scala, Baan, and SAP to note a few.

The integration project, which was completed in just a month, has allowed Areej to benefit from having the high end ERP and the best-of-breed WMS while ensuring data integrity and consistency, as well as minimal processing time by avoiding duplicate data entry, and thus an overall improvement in order fulfillment.

“SNS Consultants have proven once more their commitment to quality and efficiency in their deliverables.” said Mr. V. Muralidhar DGM Finance & IT at Areej. “SNS was capable to promptly cater to our needs and support our firm in its thrive to excellence”.

“We, at SNS, believe in optimizing our clients operations and ensuring their adoption of best of practices at all times. Areej’s implementation of SAP ERP was identified as a critical project and a step forward in their evolution” said Mohammed Obaidah, SNS Technical Manager. “Therefore, we invested great efforts in ensuring that their new implementation smoothly blended in their previous WMS project, offering them the best of both worlds.”
