Riyadh Air, Saudi Arabia’s new world-class airline, has selected Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications Suite to efficiently manage its core business operations after a competitive bidding process.

The services include digitalizing finance, supply chain, and human capital management. The implementation will help Riyadh Air develop a modern, scalable, and secure business platform to enable data-driven decision-making, reduce costs, enhance employee engagement, and streamline procurement processes.

Riyadh Air has chosen Tech Mahindra as the implementation partner for this initiative, which will help Riyadh Air evolve as the world’s first digitally native airline. Tech Mahindra is a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting, and business re-engineering services and solutions.

Adam Boukadida, Chief Financial Officer at Riyadh Air, stated that, “Riyadh Air aims to disrupt the future of air travel, and as part of our vision we need to be at the forefront of innovation and technology. A key part of this approach is to partner with world-class experts as we build technical capabilities that enable us to deliver a seamless digital-first experience to our guests”.

Reham AlMusa, Vice President of Cloud Applications and Managing Director at Oracle Saudi Arabia, said that, “Riyadh Air represents a major moment for the aviation industry, and with the implementation of Oracle Fusion Applications, the airline is preparing a future-ready digital platform that will help drive rapid growth, nurture a truly connected workforce, prepare a resilient supply chain, and deliver a unique digital experience to the modern-day global traveler.”

Under this initiative, Riyadh Air will deploy Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM), and Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain & Manufacturing (SCM).

Further, Oracle Fusion Applications will enable Riyadh Air to take advantage of the cloud and break down organizational silos, standardize processes, and manage finance, supply chain, and HR data on a single integrated platform. With quarterly update cycles, Oracle Fusion Applications provides access to continuous innovation so the airline can make faster and better decisions and outpace change.
