Kapsch implements HP Project and Portfolio Management solution for Omani telecom provider Ooredoo

Vienna/Muscat, August 11, 2015 – As a Platinum Partner of HP, Kapsch BusinessCom has been commissioned to implement a comprehensive project and portfolio management software solution for Omani telecom provider Ooredoo.

Ooredoo was launched in 2004 as the first privately owned telecommunications company in the Sultanate of Oman, and the company is now providing voice and data services to more than two million customers. In order to support further growth, new products and services are constantly being developed. In the dynamic telecommunications industry, such projects are usually very complex and need to be carried out under great time pressure. In response to this, Ooredoo has chosen a software solution that offers the company the ability to easily centralize and automate project and portfolio management. The integration of HP’s software was overseen by a dedicated team of Kapsch experts.

Good global relations

Hilal Al-Saleh, Department Head of IT Change Management at Ooredoo, emphasizes the high level of cooperation between all parties: “We have an excellent relationship with Kapsch and with HP at an Ooredoo Group  level.”

He praised the easily configurable software solution from HP and also the high price-performance ratio of the product and its implementation. The new process provides a 360 degree overview for decision-makers and offers a marked improvement in terms of time-to-market: “Automating our project management methodology has proved very advantageous across the business, providing real time reporting, a centralized depository, shorter project duration, audit trails, resource utilization tracking, as well as other benefits.”
