The consultants have been brought on board to oversee the design, delivery and roll-out of the SAP Business One system, which will enable Diana Medical to manage all its business functions from production, financials, logistics, e-commerce and day to day operations.

Asked why the healthcare company decided to adopt SAP, an all-in-one ERP system, the CEO of Diana Medical Abdullah Hussein Alfifi said, “We chose SAP Business One as it is a reliable and user-friendly ERP system. It holds a solution to our key business challenges and addresses them innovatively. We are confident that we made the right decision to invest in it.”

SAP Business One is SAP’s flagship system for small and medium-sized enterprises. The solution automates and facilitates financials, operations, and human resources, and is available both on premise as well as in the cloud. Saudi healthcare provider taps Abacus for SAP implementationOnce the system is in place, Diana Medical expects to improve its operational efficiencies by gaining a unified view of its business and facilitate business growth through improved financial reporting and control. “The implementation of SAP Business One is the cornerstone of our digital transformation strategy,” said Alfifi.
