Saudi Xerox shares Saudi’s digital transformation outlook
In its aim to boost investment towards achieving Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia is moving steadily towards leveraging its technology. Sezer adds, “One of the main directives for Vision 2030 is diversification away from an economy based on natural resources to become a digitally enabled hub for trade, innovation and investment through the implementation of digital technology.
“Several key technologies that will help Saudi Arabia meet its Vision 2030 goals are a synergistic effort between both the public and private sector entities in the country to help the Kingdom meet its targets,” he says. These are based around three key themes: a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation.
Transformative technologies at all levels
Not limited to a specific sector, Sezer points out that the digital transformation process is being implemented at many levels, including transportation, education, healthcare, oil and gas, finance, utilities and the energy sectors.
“Investment and research into specific technologies can aid organisations’ digital transformation journey,” he says, especially with the large-scale adoption of transformative digital solutions such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, cloud computing, the internet of things (IoT), and augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR).
From a technological perspective, Saudi Xerox’s Intelligent Workplace Services (IWS) for its clients will transform the workplace to maximise efficiency. Notwithstanding, innovation and environmental sustainability are vital to the Saudi Xerox ethos, in parallel to CSR which work synergistically that make today’s work better.
Sustainability is how Saudi Xerox is doing business
A key part of this process is sustainability. “Governments are proactively working towards their sustainability objectives and enterprises are following their lead,” he says, and with sustainability at the core of all global industries, at Saudi Xerox, sustainability is their way of doing business.
“We align our goals for the environment, health and safety in key areas to make a worldwide impact,” he explains, and they strive to maintain the highest standards for preserving the environment and enhancing the health and safety of their employees and communities. “We are also dedicated to helping governments and organisations achieve their sustainability goals.”
MPS (Managed Print Services) designed to bolster employee productivity
With the transition of paper documents into digital content and automated pipelines, MPS provides a host of apps designed to strengthen employee productivity. Further elaborating, Sezer says, “Our MPS offerings has a portfolio of capabilities that uses analytics, workflow automation, content management, security solutions and print infrastructure optimisation to help workplaces become more efficient, employees more productive and data more secure.”
Saudi Xerox also enables workplaces to streamline and automate processes, manage hardware, software and data. “Flexibility, remote access and simplicity are making it easier than ever for organisations to embrace the cloud.”
Rapid global technology development in Saudi Arabia
With an established presence in Saudi Arabia since 1986, Saudi Xerox has observed the country’s phenomenal economic growth. “The Saudi government has evolved alongside the rapid global technology development and government and institutional trends,” explains Sezer, and has replaced traditional processes with digital ones, developing five-year plans to achieved quality and efficiency.
“Digitisation is the future of Saudi Arabia and we are actively working with our customers to help them transform their organizations with our solutions.”
A pioneer in the industry, Saudi Xerox already offers e-statements, archiving and content management solutions in partnership with leading banks in Saudi Arabia. Also, they recently launched e-invoicing service in the market, supporting its robust evaluation and screening solutions.
The Digital Transformation Unit to promote digital transformation
