Mastek transforms regional leader in the design-build construction industry with Oracle Cloud HCM

Setting the Context

The right kind of Human Capital Management (HCM) systems enable organizations to nurture an engaged community of employees who feel empowered to outperform, while feeling included and valued. From a technology perspective, this calls for integrating effective data models, seamless processes and infrastructure, and a single user experience. Cloud-based HCM solutions give HR an edge to unify and configure their systems.

Mastek leveraged its expertise in Oracle Cloud HCM implementation to enable a leader in the Middle East’s design-build construction industry to decomplex the digital and transition to a cloud-based, unified and integrated HCM system.

The Client

With more than 1,500 buildings constructed across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) over three decades of operations, the Amana Group is a known leader in the design build of industrial and commercial facilities. Committed to building faster, safer, and greener across sectors, the company brings multi-disciplinary cross-sector expertise and LEED-certified green building strategies.

The Challenge

Need for a comprehensive Cloud-based HCM system to integrate and automate HR processes.

The Amana Group was looking to implement a Cloud-based HCM system to accomplish effective change management on major HR policies and automate the integration of payroll.

This called for a transformation of their HCM systems to integrate core HR operations, recruitment and workforce management processes, absence management records and payroll inputs.

The Solution

Implementing an end-to-end Oracle Cloud HCM system

In being a preferred Oracle Partner with strong credentials in Oracle HCM implementation in the region, and expertise in the construction industry we were chosen to be Amana Groups’s strategic and implementation partner.

We implemented Oracle Cloud HCM with the following modules:

  • Core HR (Employee and Manger Self-Service)
  • Recruitment Cloud Services
  • Workforce Management
  • Absence Management Helpdesk
  • Oracle Payroll-UAE

Before implementation, we streamlined and simplified the main HR processes and unified them across four countries where the Amana Group had operations. We also conducted sessions to ensure that all stakeholders were on the same page while testing the solutions helping us to accelerate customer approvals.

Additionally, we adopted the ADOPT methodology (Advisory, Design, Orchestrate, Prepare, and Transition) for Oracle HCM cloud implementation

The Outcome

A modern, efficiently integrated and unified HR system

The successful implementation of Oracle Cloud HCM system enabled the Amana Group to achieve the following outcomes on-time:

  • Improved efficiency of business processes
  • Access to anywhere, anytime access to the application for more than 1800 white collar employees

The diligence of our payroll team ensured that all employees' salaries were processed accurately, and all payments settled on time. The team worked overtime to ensure that the payroll process was completed on schedule.
