RPC Data Limited, a leading ICT firm from Botswana, last week, announced that it has closed significant business with KenolKobil Limited Kenya following a successful implementation of Oracle E-Business Suite R12 at KenolKobil’s Head Office.Rob Pool, Executive Chairperson, RPC said, “The project was a complex endeavour with stringent timelines and a number of modules that in normal circumstances would been implemented as individual projects.” He further added, “The success of the project is a monumental achievement for  RPC as it has been the most complicated ERP implementation outside of Botswana which continues to bring foreign currency into the country, in addition to providing valuable exposure to our citizen  professionals in the regional market.”
Being a leading ERP solutions implementation business from Botswana, RPC was the first choice for this project.
