Transitioning to SunSystems Cloud

Gulfsands implemented Infor SunSystems Cloud with Progressive TSL as part of its initiative to modernise and digitise its core systems. The company has been a long-time user of SunSystems and selected the cloud-based solution to support its growth strategy and facilitate business expansion in the Middle East and North Africa region.

With Gulfsands’ broad geographic reach, the SunSystems Cloud’s robust ability to handle varying currency, taxation, and legislative demands was critical to their decision and is of significant advantage for the business as it continues to expand – Gulfsands recently opened an office in Abu Dhabi to bolster their focus on the region.

“Progressive TSL has supported us since 2013, providing in-depth experience and expertise from across the energy sector, in particular in oil & gas. Their approach is patient, pragmatic and consultative, and they’ve genuinely been a trusted partner in our quest to modernise and future-proof our business through the deployment of the very best digital capabilities.”
