1691: A Case Study of Oman’s Leading Fruits And Vegetable Trader’s Implementation Of FactsERP

The client is a prominent fruits and vegetable trading company in Oman.  The client, a major player in the market faced numerous challenges related to inventory management, procurement operations, production processes, financial accounting, HR and payroll, and transportation. To address these issues, we implemented a comprehensive ERP solution tailored to the client’s unique requirements.


The company was facing a number of challenges. The challenges include:

Inventory Management

The client struggled with effectively managing their inventory, particularly the control and tracking of batches. Without a robust system in place, they faced difficulties in maintaining accurate stock levels, monitoring expiration dates, and ensuring proper rotation of inventory.

Procurement Management

The absence of an integrated system hindered efficient supplier management, procurement planning, documentation, and compliance with customs regulations, leading to delays and inefficiencies in the procurement workflow.

Production Processes

Production processes, particularly repacking and assembly operations, presented significant obstacles for the client. They faced inefficiencies in workflow management, resource allocation, and tracking of intermediate and finished goods. This resulted in decreased productivity, increased errors, and delays in meeting customer demands.

Financial Accounting

The client faced various financial accounting challenges, including a lack of division-wise accounting, which impeded their ability to obtain accurate financial reports for each business division. Additionally, the absence of a comprehensive fixed asset management system hampered their ability to track assets, calculate depreciation, and effectively manage asset lifecycles. Financial budgeting and budget comparisons were also hindered by the absence of an integrated system, limiting their ability to plan and analyze financial performance.

HR and Payroll Operations

Managing HR and payroll operations according to Oman’s local requirements proved to be a complex task for the client. Calculations related to leave, gratuity, and social security needed to comply with prevailing rules and regulations, but manual processes led to inaccuracies and potential compliance issues.

Transportation Management

The client lacked a system to manage their transportation effectively. Challenges included the absence of a fleet management system to track trip details such as starting and ending kilometers, deliveries, fuel consumption, and maintenance records. This led to difficulties in optimizing fleet usage, monitoring costs, and ensuring timely maintenance and repairs.


To overcome these challenges, we implemented a complete ERP solution (FactsERP) tailored to the client’s specific needs. This solution aimed to address each of the mentioned areas, providing a cohesive and integrated system to streamline operations, improve efficiency, and support the client’s continued growth and success. The comprehensive solution included the following modules and features:
