GMI offers diverse training programs and services consisting of full time diploma programs, a pre-university program (A-Level), skills upgrading technical courses, train-the-trainers programs, and industrial consultancy and services.

For its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, GMI had relied on Navision ERP from Microsoft. But over time, the solution grew “obsolete” as newer versions of NAV is being release. The institute experienced numerous inefficiencies using the current Dynamics Nav system, but it ultimately came down to a lack of business insight and tedious, manual processes.
