30th December 2019 — a leading consulting, technology, and outsourcing firm headquartered in the UK, Abacus, today has announced the successful go-live implementation of SAP Business One on HANA for Falcon Group. The implementation will allow the group of companies to transform its business processes, deliver next-gen human capital management using Abacus’s HCMOne, and automation of intercompany consolidation leveraging powerful capabilities of HANA.
“Falcon Group is one of the fastest-growing conglomerates in Iraq, spanning our businesses across diversified industrial sectors including real estate, oil & gas, security, agriculture among many others.
With the rapid development in Iraq combined with the digitalization of businesses across industries, we needed to innovate and modernize our processes across the group of companies to remain competitive”, said, Samer H. Alssabagh, Chief Financial Officer at Falcon Group. “We selected Abacus as our transformation partner owing to its stellar performance across SAP portfolio,” he added.
With nine companies operating under its umbrella, the group did not have complete visibility across its subsidiaries and sister companies, thus lacking standardization and better controls. Launching the new software is a part of a strategic project to restructure the accounting information system (AIS) of Falcon Group for compatibility with the international financial reporting standards (IFRSs). This project was led by Group’s CFO, Dr Samer H. Alssabagh and sponsored by Group’s Chairman & CEO, Mr Peshraw Majid Agha.
“We are pleased to be able to help Falcon Group in their business transformation journey.” “SAP has been a strong partner for us, with hundreds of SAP implementations under our belt. Combining powerful capabilities of SAP Business One HANA with our proven expertise and practices, allow our customers to drive tangible business outcomes”, said Abbas Khan, CEO at Abacus.
