Part of the SAR 3 billion turnover IKK Group which consists of 15 specialised companies in the field of construction, manufacturing and servicing, Adada & Kabbani itself has a 2009 turnover of SAR 70 million and has built an important position within the Saudi Arabian and International markets. The company sees its investment in Preactor’s production planning and scheduling technology as a vital part of this strategy as General Manager and co-founder Yahya Adada explains.

“Our biggest challenge is capacity planning and our own ERP system cannot deal with the capacity planning complexities of our business processes. What we required was a dedicated standalone solution that had been developed specifically to manage the complex planning and scheduling challenges that manufacturers like ourselves require.”

He continues, “Preactor perfectly fulfils our requirements and has a long reputation of providing specialist solutions that can integrate in a complementary fashion with existing ERP systems. We see Preactor as a means to get the best from our ERP system and from the business as a whole.”

The implementation is currently underway and being handled primarily by Preactor India. P J Yogesh, General Manager of Preactor India comments on the business win.

"Adada & Kabbani are typical of many manufacturers that face not just serious planning and scheduling challenges but the wider business decision about what to do with their existing ERP system." He continues, “Most ERP systems cannot provide the level of control and flexibility required, even those with built-in planning modules. Preactor not only provides the planning and scheduling capabilities required but because of it’s proven ability to seamlessly integrate with ERP, it can actually extend the usable life of ERP system in question saving a huge amount of time, money and disruption.”

The project is due to go-live and start delivering immediate benefits in May 2010.
