Aramex aims to simplify different business functions by consolidating systems onto one single “Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)” platform

DUBAI, UAE – 17 November 2015: Tata Consultancy Services (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), the leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced today that it has been selected by Aramex (DFM: ARMX), a leading global logistics and transportation solutions providers, to carry out and implement “ERP” platform consolidation.

Aramex aims to simplify and transform its business globally by migrating its Finance, Human Resources, Procurement and Operations functions onto a single ERP system.

We believe that this ability to rapidly introduce new technology solutions gives us a strong competitive edge. This platform consolidation will perfectly allow us to strengthen collaboration across all business units. It will also help ensure that we maintain exceptional levels of service, for our customers and partners as well as our employees around the world. This is a natural, logical step in further streamlining our global business operations. Having TCS implement the program will ensure the transition to the new platform will be efficient, effective and seamless.”

Mr. Varun Kapur, Vice President and Head of Middle East & Africa, TCS, said:
