Infor is to increase its presence in Saudi Arabia. It is aiming to continue its success in the Kingdom and region. Infor Middle East and Africa was the fastest-growing region during 2021. The company has appointed Islam Elberimbali as Sales Director for Saudi Arabia. It aims to triple the size of the business by 2025 in the region.

Infor already has several customers in the country including Saudi Bugshan, Zahid Tractor, Hafil Transportation Co,  and AutoWorld. It is also working with Saudi Bugshan, a conglomerate that comprises 47 companies, helping to transform many of them.

Elberimbali commented: “One of the reasons we’re experiencing solid growth in Saudi Arabia is that our cloud ERP software is industry-specific and designed for the different needs of high-growth sectors including industrial manufacturing, distribution, automotive, and healthcare. Our solutions are highly effective at helping companies gain full visibility of their operations and enabling them to automate their systems to increase performance and utilization.

“Organizations across the country are keen to move on from legacy systems by migrating to the cloud to gain the agility they need to grow their business, respond to challenges in the market and tap new opportunities.
