Al Habtoor Leighton Group selects India’s ‘Wrench Solutions’ for projects worth $2.29bn

United Arab Emirates: Saturday, October 23 - 2010 @ 14:21

HLG adopted this software as its new organization-wide technology infrastructure to plan, execute, monitor and handover projects. Wrench I enterprise is also the world’s only fully automated project management solution, enabling full control over every aspect from planning to handover.

“After evaluating four document management applications in a bid to manage our extensive project data, we finally chose Wrench because of its advanced functionality and intuitive features that seemed to go much beyond data/document management. Wrench is in use at our corporate/divisional offices and work sites and has already greatly surpassed our expectations,” said Joe Dujmovic, Executive General Manager for HLG’s United Arab Emirates Business Unit.

Graeme Dunn Executive General Manager, Group Services and Associated Businesses, HLG, said, “A typical project generates between 300,000 to 500,000 printouts. Documents are the lifeblood of construction projects and inefficient document management methods are the main cause of delay. Manually-driven or semi-automated document management systems do provide some benefits, but are not enough for significant long-term business impact. We have adopted Wrench I enterprise to overcome all these challenges and thereby provide HLG with a real-time project control and document management system.”

“This software works on a web-based platform and has enabled HLG to execute projects efficiently by monitoring the engineering deliverables of a particular project. Furthermore this tool also provides our users easy accessibility to all project-related deliverables and documentation. We deployed this software on a number of our projects including JAFZA Convention Center in Dubai, Al Bustan complex, Dusit Hotel, Arzannah Medical centre, St. Regis Hotel and Residences in Abu Dhabi and the KAHRAMAA project in Qatar,” added Mahmoud Ghandour, General Manager, HLG.

“We are proud to work with HLG – one of the most prestigious construction companies in the region who have developed world class projects such as the Burj-Al-Arab, Dubai International Airport – Terminal 3 and ‘Jumeirah Beach Hotel’ among several others. Our technology enables our clients to be efficient, competitive and helps them to remain profitable even during the tough economic conditions,” said Daniel Varghese, CEO, Wrench Solutions.

“Another bonus is that we have become much ‘greener’ and we now have a unique advantage with environmen¬tally-conscious clients,” said Naghman R. Akhter, Group Manager – IT & Systems at HLG. “The transition from a paper-driven to largely paperless culture has already shown major savings on paper/print. HLG today saves approximately 260 trees – that’s 1 tree al¬most every working day – per project. We went from a manual, tedious and error-prone working environment to an automated, effortless and accurate one.”
