We stay ahead of the curve…. Always!

OUR HERITAGE

KPI has a Legacy of more than two decades, we started as an audit practice in the early 90s, and are now a full-fledged consulting entity that has been at the forefront of innovation in our field. From paperless audit, to the ‘Doing Business in the UAE’ mobile App, to NetSuite ERP solutions KPI has always tried to be ahead of the curve, in using technology as enablers, and be the thought leaders.

KPI is one amongst the 16 DFSA-registered auditors, a distinction earned after a successful appraisal by the Dubai Financial Services Authority, after rigorous reviews conducted on our systems, workflows and capabilities. This distinction also corroborates the fact that the systems, processes, policies and procedures that have been implemented at KPI are truly world-class. We were the first firm to be registered at the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) which, indeed, was a proud moment in our illustrious growth path.
In 2014, we bolstered our consulting capability by becoming NetSuite Solution Providers. NetSuite is the world’s No.1 Cloud based ERP solution, and allows us to now offer turnkey process consulting and re-engineering solutions. Our domain expertise, commitment to quality and ability to translate client requirements into bespoke implementations, helped us grow this vertical quickly. The distinction, Fastest Growing NetSuite Solution Provider Worldwide, conferred on us for 2015 is indeed a testimony to our capability.
We don’t rest at our laurels. We raise the bar for ourselves in offering out-of-the-box solutions to our clients. We strive to bring in the cutting edge technologies and solutions to help our customers update their processes, turn the company lean and efficient and finally improve the bottom line. We see to it that they emerge leaders in the field.

At KPI the distinction is clear and well understood and is always adhered to.

We stay topical, on whatever is relevant to our profession and our service offerings. We stay ahead of the curve, in using technology as an enabler of our services.
Learning, re-learning and unlearning is ingrained in our DNA. We spend considerable amount of time on research to stay fit. Fit to serve you!

Sharing
Sharing expertise, for us, is an enlightening experience. With each interaction with our clients, we believe, we equip ourselves with a new perspective.  Thus the knowledge gone out comes back to us enriched manifold.  The cycle strengthens our knowledge base so that we can come up with the best solutions in the industry.

  • NetSuite has given us the flexibility that we always wanted, but never got from other ERP systems. Having previously implemented multiple systems in our group, we can safely say that NetSuite proved to be the best solution for us!
    The implementation team at KPI went beyond the traditional “modular system” approach. They actually listened to what we wanted, designed bespoke workflows and completely automated our processes, even those where we didn’t think any major improvements could be made. Thank you KPI, for spending your time and effort and going the extra mile to satisfy our business needs. Highly recommended!

  • “Being a relatively tech-savvy enterprise, we found it frustrating that our shipping quotation and booking processes were antiquated and manual. NetSuite gave us the perfect solution to manage these process effectively, and more importantly, in an automated manner. KPI, who designed the automated workflows, took up the challenge and delivered! They analysed our quotation and booking management, and customised NetSuite to suit our specific needs. I recommend KPI to firms in any industry, who would like to implement a custom solution rather than an ‘install and work with what you have’ method.”
