The main goal of the project is to reduce the delivery time of off-the-shelf tools used in maintenance activities and office supplies.
Project Results

As a result of the project, delivery times were reduced by 10 times. On average, it takes 9 days from order to delivery.

ERG Mobile Marketplace has been replicated to all ERG's 10 enterprises in 4 regions of Kazakhstan.

Two large categories of goods are purchased using a new process, 4 suppliers are connected to the ERG Markeplace, delivering to all regions of presence. Currently 18,000 products worth $2.2 million have been ordered through the ERG Marketplace.


The uniqueness of the project

ERG Marketplace is the first internal marketplace in the mining and metallurgical sector in Kazakhstan.

Employees can order goods in a couple of clicks and receive delivery directly to their workplace. Delivery times have been reduced by 10 times, which allows flexibility in ordering goods as needed.

The product was fully implemented within 3 months. At the moment, goods in the “Tools” and “Office Supplies” categories are purchased only through the ERG Marketplace.

Used software

The product is implemented within the corporate superapp MyERG/Qollab.kz, to which all ERG employees have access.

The service is developed using Python Django, Django Rest Framework, Celery, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, Redis technologies.

Difficulty of implementation
The difficulty of implementation was the complete restructuring of the procurement process. The process affected all services at business entities: accounting, purchasing managers, security service, сompliance and so on. Maintenance process in the ERP system has changed too.
Project Description

The system is intended for employees of production entities. The service is implemented in a corporate superapp, where one can view a catalog of goods from suppliers. The user selects what (s)he needs and awaits delivery.

Previously, purchasing of goods related to tail-end spends was a complex process similar to purchasing a bulldozer or excavator, which took an average of 90 business days.

  • ERG Marketplace simplifies ordering goods by removing all bureaucratic processes from the user
  • The product shortens the delivery time to once a week deliveries.
  • Delivery takes place to the user’s workplace
  • No reporting is required from the user after receiving the goods

On June 6, 2024, the professional IT community Global CIO held an annual meeting with IT leaders from Uzbekistan. The event named “CIO of Uzbekistan as part of Global IT community” took place at the International Hotel in Tashkent. The meeting was aimed to exchange best practices, experiences and get together IT leaders from Central Asia.

The Global CIO professional IT community has conducted its annual survey of IT executives and would like to thank all the community members who helped realise this work. This survey explores the key challenges that CIOs face from their companies, as well as the CIO's personal view of their areas of responsibility. The survey included 100 respondents heading IT departments in companies.

The events of the past two years have shown how important it is not only to have a long-term strategy, but also to be able to quickly 'reformat' it to new circumstances. The metaphor of the whale and the Strategy methodology were created specifically for this process.

The international IT professionals' community has announced the 'Top 100 IT Leaders' project. It is a global initiative that allows top IT managers to share their experience, expand their professional network and showcase the best digitalization practices of their companies. Here we will answer the basic questions about the project.

The editors of Global CIO discussed with Ahmet Hakan Göral, CIO at Boutique Rugs and winner of the Project of the Year 2023 contest, his current projects, the approach to digital transformation and the specifics of the role of CIO in retail.
