Hafil has a fleet of 12,000+ vehicles, a fully equipped workshop, and service centers and depots throughout the kingdom, making it one of the Middle East’s largest bus and coach companies. As part of a consortium supervised by Makkah Development Authority, Hafil Transportation plays a pivotal role in ensuring pilgrims, who increase in number each year, travel to and from the Holy City of Mecca in comfort and safety.

Motivated by its growing operations, Hafil sought to standardize and automate business processes across all its divisions, including Hajj/Umrah, school transportation, and public transport. To enhance its performance, Hafil, which dispatches 5,000 to 8,000 buses daily, selected Infor EAM, a best-in-class enterprise asset management software solution with built-in functionality and the flexibility to integrate with other applications. Infor EAM is a scalable solution that is accessible on any mobile device and built on modern architecture. Because Infor’s EAM is highly configurable, Hafil was able to integrate it with its existing applications.

“We pride ourselves on delivering a comprehensive customer experience to both the private and public sectors. With Infor EAM, we are able to manage our fleets more effectively, track vehicle and fuel expenses, and use the data to create more efficient routes and increase operational competences,” said Akram Al-Shehri, Hafil Transportation Company’s IT manager.

In addition to Infor EAM, Hafil has selected Infor OS (operating services), a platform that will help ensure a smooth transition of data from legacy systems and is flexible enough to make even the most complex enterprise systems run in harmony.

“Unparalleled visibility was necessary for Hafil to manage its growing operations efficiently. With Infor EAM, Hafil is able to track and manage its fleets, whilst capitalizing on opportunities for productivity and cost-per-mile savings. The company will now be able to run a lot more smoothly,” said Khaled AlShami, Infor’s director of solution consulting for Middle East & Africa.

Finally, by using Infor’s solutions, Hafil will be able to maintain common business rules for creating and consolidating all of its documents, while ensuring that common practices around governing permissions are always enforced.
