Corporate Profiling for a Low-Profile Libyan Firm

A Libyan-based company, despite generating eight-figure annual revenue, maintained a minimal online presence over several decades. This low profile led to credibility issues with foreign entities, impacting their competitive stance in international dealings. To address these challenges, the company engaged Qabas to develop an independent and detailed company profile.

Company Profiling

To establish a credible and robust profile, we conducted a thorough examination of the company’s operations and financial status. This process involved several critical steps:

  1. Track Record Analysis: We reviewed the company’s historical performance, including revenue growth, market position, and operational milestones. This helped in showcasing the company’s long-term stability and success.
  2. Operational Review: We analysed the operational processes, including supply chain management, production efficiency, and quality control measures. This provided a clear understanding of the company’s capabilities and operational strengths.
  3. Financial Health Assessment: Assessing the company’s financial health was a key component. We examined working capital management, cash flow patterns, and financial statements. This included a detailed review of bank statements to verify the company’s financial stability and reliability.
  4. Asset Evaluation: We evaluated both tangible and intangible assets of the company. This included property, equipment, intellectual property, and any proprietary technologies. Highlighting these assets demonstrated the company’s substantial investment in its operational infrastructure.
  5. Human Resources Review: Reviewing employee details and organisational structure was essential to showcase the company’s human capital strength. This involved assessing employee qualifications, training programs, and overall workforce competency.

Structured Expert Opinion

Our deep analysis culminated in a structured expert opinion, which significantly enhanced the company’s public perception. The detailed profile included:

  1. Objective Examination: An impartial and thorough review of the company’s financial and operational data, ensuring transparency and reliability.
  2. Detailed Reporting: The creation of a detailed report that outlined the company’s strengths, capabilities, and market position. This report served as a vital tool for external communication with potential partners and stakeholders.
  3. Credibility Enhancement: By providing an expert opinion backed by rigorous analysis, we added significant credibility to the company’s profile. This reinforced the company’s legitimacy and operational reality without the need for an increased online presence.

Strategic Outcomes

The independent profiling undertaken by Qabas led to several key outcomes for the company:

  1. Enhanced Credibility: The structured profile enhanced the company’s credibility with foreign entities, making it easier to establish and maintain international business relationships.
  2. Strengthened Competitive Position: The detailed report strengthened the company’s competitive stance by providing verifiable proof of its operational and financial health. This made the company more attractive to potential partners and investors.
  3. Effective Stakeholder Communication: The profile enabled the company to effectively communicate its strengths and legitimacy to external stakeholders, fostering trust and confidence.
  4. Increased Trustworthiness: The detailed and transparent analysis boosted the company’s trustworthiness, facilitating smoother and more productive international dealings.

By developing a detailed and credible company profile, Qabas helped the Libyan-based company overcome its credibility challenges. This strategic initiative positioned the company as a reliable and competitive entity in the international market, paving the way for future growth and success.

Having implemented the Siemens SIMATIC S7 controller in their production line, the Libyan Iron and Steel Company (LISCO) sought to maximise the potential of this sophisticated technology. To achieve this, LISCO engaged Qabas to enhance its engineering team’s technical skills through an extensive training programme covering Siemens SIMATIC S7, including programming and TIA (Totally Integrated Automation). Training Specifications Siemens S7 Training: Engineers required a deep understanding of Siemens S7 PLCs, encompassing hardware configuration, system diagnostics, and basic programming. Advanced Programming: The programme aimed to enhance engineers’ skills in advanced programming for Siemens S7 PLCs, focusing on ladder logic, structured text, and function block diagrams. TIA Training: The TIA Portal training covered integrated engineering, system configuration, and efficient project management within the Siemens automation environment. Implementation Strategy Needs Analysis: We conducted a detailed assessment to identify the specific training needs of LISCO’s engineers, aligning the curriculum with the company’s operational goals and technological requirements. Customised Modules: We developed specialised training modules tailored to Siemens S7, advanced programming, and TIA, addressing the unique requirements of LISCO’s engineering team. Practical Workshops: We delivered hands-on workshops to provide practical experience with Siemens S7 PLCs and the TIA Portal, reinforcing theoretical knowledge through real-world application. Ongoing Support: We established continuous learning support mechanisms, including access to online resources, post-training evaluations, and follow-up sessions to ensure skill retention and knowledge enhancement. Stakeholder Communication: We maintained consistent communication with LISCO’s management and engineering teams to ensure alignment with training objectives and gather continuous feedback for course refinement. Results This initiative significantly enhanced the technical capabilities of LISCO’s engineering team. Engineers developed a robust understanding of Siemens S7 PLCs, advanced programming techniques, and the TIA Portal, leading to improved system diagnostics, efficient project management, and greater automation efficiency. Ultimately, it boosted the team’s confidence and proficiency in handling complex automation tasks and positioned LISCO as a leader in industrial automation.
