CMiC Selected for Strategic Tech-Focused Transformation by Leading UAE-Based Construction Contractor, ALEC
CMiC – the innovation leader in ERP and field operations software for the construction industry in North America – has announced a joint venture with ALEC Engineering and Contracting LLC, the award-winning multidisciplinary construction firm based in Dubai and serving the Middle Eastern region.
After a thorough evaluation of several ERP solutions, ALEC selected CMiC’s complete enterprise platform to run its financials and field operations. “We relied heavily on a host of standalone applications to compensate for the limitations of our legacy ERP,” remarks Henry Loubser, Enterprise Resources Planning Manager at ALEC. “We needed a platform that would consolidate, standardize, integrate and automate, which CMiC has demonstrated with their impressive customer roster, proven R&D track record and unparalleled industry expertise.”
CMiC’s Single Database Platform™ architecture, which delivers a single version of truth to users across all functional areas, was the key advantage over alternative ERP software vendors. As the only ERP solution built specifically for construction, CMiC includes functionality designed to support international best practices and collaboration.
“We are delighted to be the vendor chosen to help deliver ALEC’s vision of becoming the most technologically innovative construction group in the Middle East,” says Gord Rawlins, President & CEO of CMiC.
“This decision represents a strategic investment for both companies; we expect to give ALEC significant operational advantages to support unprecedented growth and scalability, while they will provide CMiC with a strong entry point into the construction software market of the region.”
To best serve ALEC and to establish the cornerstone for future partnerships in the region, CMiC will be setting up direct operations in the Middle East. This includes opening a regional headquarters office in Dubai with a dedicated team on the ground.
“Our objective is to provide our onsite teams with the capabilities they need to readily access critical information to complete their work more effectively,” adds John Deeb, Chief Financial Officer at ALEC. “We envision a lasting relationship with CMiC as they become the solution to help drive our digital transformation.”
