Pioneering approach to digitalization
Tamer Group’s digital innovations are transforming Saudi and the region
One prominent way in which the Tamer Group is steering national and regional modernization is through its pioneering investments into innovative digital systems and customer-centric services.
For instance, in 2021 it acquired a majority stake in Mumzworld, the region’s largest mother and child e-commerce platform that provides customers in 20 countries with access to products from 5,500 global brands. “Mumzworld has been a strategic investment and part of our drive towards technology, digitalization and business-to-consumer activities,” says Ayman Tamer. “Besides the holistic advantage gained by sharing verticals in our areas of specialization, the group has strong logistics capabilities that further Mumzworld’s needs.”
The group has also cemented its position as a leader in e-health services with its launch of a unique digital procurement platform for Saudi pharmacies, clinics and hospitals this year. In addition, Tamer is investing in digital tools to meet its ambitious environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals. “We moved to the corporate social responsibility model over 25 years ago, supporting education, helping the underprivileged and empowering women. Now we are evolving into ESG,” he states. Tamer aims to address all of the World Economic Forum’s required ESG metrics within three years, with 40 percent of them being covered in 2022. According to the chairman: “2023 will see us tackle the remaining relevant metrics, some of which will be developed through data analytics so they can be constantly measured.”
As a standard bearer for digitalization and sustainability, Tamer will continue to be a key contributor to the country’s rapid economic and societal transformation. “Saudi is going through an exciting period and there are great opportunities ahead. We welcome foreign investment, and we are more than willing to support, encourage and co-invest with international partners.”
