Al Ghurair marks major digital milestone Featured

15 December 2021: 

Today marked a momentous day at Al Ghurair as we took a significant stride along our digital transformation journey – launching Microsoft Dynamics 365 across three of our business units, as well as performance management for our Leadership community. This is the first phase of the wider Future Dynamics programme, which will see the full Al Ghurair group of businesses transfer to the new system.

Commenting on the milestone, Marinda Sheahan, GVP, Group IT, Al Ghurair stated: “Al Ghurair is on a trajectory of extensive transformation in line with our ambitious 2025 roadmap. For the business to be able to achieve this, an optimised digital ecosystem is paramount. With Dynamics 365, we are enabling a more agile, data-rich and cohesive business that is empowered to become Fit For Future.

Today’s phase 1 launch is a huge accomplishment, achieved in half the time of usual programme of this complexity. The successful Go Live is underpinned by five core elements:

  • Purpose – driven by a passion to enhance life for the business;
  • Teamwork - building a ground-up, high performing and harmonious team;
  • Collaboration – working with key partners across the business, gaining insights and support;
  • Determination – driven by a collective desire to achieve our goals;
  • Resilience – embracing challenges and difficulties with a tenacious mindset.

Thank you to everybody involved, and we look forward to continuing our journey together!
