- September 4, 2007:
Furthering its commitment to boosting the performance and productivity of businesses across the Middle East, Collaboration Management and Control Solutions (CMCS) will showcase next-generation business applications and specialized training courses at Gitex 2007. The unveilings come at a time when, according to Bassam Samman, CEO and founder of CMCS, regional economies are increasingly dependent on the kinds of project management solutions CMCS provides.
“The Middle East is engaged in a historic drive to diversify its industries and attract overseas investment,” said Samman. “This has increased the project work across all sectors, especially the public sector. Accordingly, project management is increasingly being seen as a crucial factor in overall economic growth – so the need for the right tools and training to deliver a project successfully is higher than ever before."
CMCS confirmed that the products and services showcased at Gitex will enable small to large companies to transform their operations by reducing costs and increasing efficiency. Senior CMCS consultants will be on hand to highlight the strategic benefits of project management applications, which allow users to make informed decisions and manage risks with contingency plans.
The company will offer the latest versions of Primavera V6, RIB Cost Estimating solutions and Vela System. CMCS’ smart business applications are designed to meet the needs of over ten distinct industries, which allow users to plan and control projects with a high degree of accuracy, keeping them on time and under budget through the capture and reuse of best practices.
Samman added, “Using CMCS’ robust solutions, companies have a ready platform to plan strategically while enjoying easy access to relevant information, documents and costs, allowing them to anticipate challenges early on and address ‘what-if’ scenarios.”
Having gained a market share of over 70 per cent in the Middle East, CMCS plans to expand its focus to introduce innovative solutions and extend its customer base. The leading regional project management company concluded several major business deals in the region this year, including providing project, portfolio and risk management applications for Daman Investments, Dubai Metro, Emaar Properties, Qatar National Project Management, Qatari Diar, Abu Dhabi Ports Company, Siemens, TECOM Investments FZ LLC, WS Atkins & Partners, NASA Multiplex, Bahrain Bay Development and Dubai Holdings
CMCS will also use Gitex to offer discounted training packages to C-level executives, IT managers, team leaders and project professionals. CMCS WS-24 stand is located in Hall 5 at the Oracle World.
