Achieving optimal operational efficiency and effectiveness is difficult even at the best of times. In today’s uncertain environment, driven by lower oil prices, this is even more challenging. Businesses in the region are looking for ways to respond competitively to the changing economic landscape. Their focus has now moved to reducing direct costs to meet customer requirements, optimizing operations and reducing indirect spending.
