Combined Group Contracting Company (CGC) was established in 1965 in Kuwait and is one of the largest construction and engineering company in Kuwait. It also has presence in UAE and Qatar with varied interests in Turnkey projects spanning Engineering, Construction, Contracting and Marketing.
CGC interests and activities span the oil sector, construction including roads and infrastructure, power generation and maintenance. CGC also owns Asphalt Plants, Ready-Mix Concrete batching plants and a wide and diverse fleet ranging from heavy specialized equipment to light vehicles. With a dominant role in contracting in Kuwait, Qatar and UAE, CGC's 2012 revenue stood around US$ 700M.
Disparate sources of information simply meant loosely defined data flowing from different levels of the business into various functions. With rapidly growing business, financial consolidation turned into not only a resource intensive operation but also a hugely time consuming task. Excessive delays consistently meant lack of readily available information for the management and decision makers at various levels to respond quickly.
Existing legacy systems that were shrouded in complexities and simply incapable of handling the sheer volumes around CGC's growing information processing needs made it imperative for the business to find a future proof solution that not only addressed their current needs but also stay flexible and scalable to accommodate future possibilities.
