CITY MOVES TO ENTERPRISE RESOURCE

PLANNING SYSTEM

 

             The City and County of Honolulu has launched its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) project, an integrated computer software system that will improve the way the City conducts its accounting and personnel procedures.   

           

            “The City’s financial, personnel and payroll systems are all decades old,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann.  “Enterprise Resource Planning will replace these critical applications with an integrated, state-of-the-art system. By 2008, we will be able to manage these processes with greater efficiency and productivity.”

 

            In order to ensure the success of the program, ERP will be implemented in two phases over two and a half years.  Phase One will cover financials, including purchasing, inventory and project and grant accounting.  Phase Two will be Human Resources and Payroll.

 

            Honolulu’s existing systems were originally implemented separately and are currently maintained as such,” said Department of Information Technology Director Gordon Bruce.  “By implementing an integrated ERP solution, the systems will be greatly enhanced and will better support modern business practices and many of the critical functions of City government.”

 

            The City selected CGI-AMS, Inc. as the contractor for ERP.  The information technology firm has signed a $10 million two and a half year contract.

 

            “The administration and the City Council believe in the long run, there will be cost savings for city taxpayers,” Hannemann said.  “Consolidating and automating our financial and human resources systems will improve their reliability and reduce risks.  More importantly, ERP will provide our hard-working city employees more timely information that will enable them to do their jobs better and more productively.”
