Under The Auspices Of Mr. Helmy Abouleish IMC Managing Council Member Oracle Middle East is pleased to invite you to attend: The Oracle Small & Midsize Business Forum On February 28 th, 2006 At Marriott Hotel - Aida Ballroom, Cairo No matter how small you think your business is, and even though you may be operating mainly in the local market, if you are looking to survive and grow at a sustainable pace, now is the time to start thinking strategically. The primary reason is the growing competition resulting from the gradual implementation of free trade measures. Today, choosing a business application to run your business is more critical than ever! You can now afford the best business application in the world, especially that there are now international donors willing to partly fund such projects. You need, however, to be alert against the common pitfalls that others in the past have fallen into, while choosing and implementing business applications! Unlike in the past when business applications used to take years to be implemented, now, whether you are in the “Trade & Distribution”, or “Manufacturing” business, within 2 to 3 months, you can gain more visibility into your business processes, enhance your control over your operations and boost efficiency in your company’s entire business lifecycle through empowering your employees with the right tools. Competitive pressures are there, right now! Join us at Simply Business Forum for Small and Midsize Businesses in Cairo and discover how Oracle can help you face the competition.
