Metito appoints Infor to enhance its business processes

ABU DHABI, October 26, 2021

Metito, a leader in sustainable water management and alternative energy solutions, said it has teamed up with the industry cloud company Infor for deployment of its enterprise resource planning solution, Infor LN, to help boost the group's business processes.
The turnkey solution simplifies and automates discrete operations providing manufacturers with increased visibility to enable more efficient response times to customers, suppliers, and regulatory need, said the statement from Metito.
Boosted by population growth and investment in megaprojects, water demand is set to rise by 62% by 2025 in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries alone, and about $80 billion worth of water and wastewater projects are currently planned or underway across the GCC, according to Research and Markets.
Metito has operations covering all facets of water management including design and build, specialty chemicals, and utilities. The company has expanded rapidly in recent years and has operations in countries across Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe.  
Metito said it has established many industry firsts over its 60 plus years of operations, including the development of some iconic projects in recent years such as the first bulk surface water supply Public Private Partnership  project in Sub-Saharan Africa; El Hammam agricultural drainage, recycling, and reuse plant in Egypt, which is the largest plant of its kind in the world; and the largest wastewater treatment plant in terms of capacity in Serbia.     
“As the demand for global water security increases and we continue to expand our global footprint, we saw the need to upgrade our existing integrated management system to gain enhanced operational agility. Infor LN provides us with a tool to streamline and unify our processes across all aspects of the business including CRM, supply chains, projects, purchasing, financial analysis and human resources, through utilising cloud-based technology and advanced analytics,” said Arnab Debroy, Metito information systems manager.
Infor LN provides flexibility and suitability for the specialised needs of engineering in the water industry. Metito has customised several external applications and integrated them into the Infor suite, delivering projects with unique key performance indicators (KPIs).  
The advantages are felt across the business, with buying cycles reduced, improved customer forecasting, and sales teams able to securely capture customer visit details on their smartphones. In addition, inventory can be tracked throughout the supply chain, which enhances project planning. 
Technology partner Godrej deployed Infor LN across Metito’s operations with the project taking about six months to complete.
“Metito’s digital transformation into a truly smart provider of water management solutions is a testament to our commitment to helping organisations with global and extended operations,” stated Khaled Al Shami, Infor senior director of solution consulting, Middle East & Africa.
"Through Infor LN, companies achieve complete visibility and control of their systems and processes. As the demand for water treatment continues to rise in the region, Metito is now better equipped with the agility to optimise its supply chains, financials and workforce," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
