Cost visibility and job forecasting drives ERP rollout

First module to go live this week

Brisbane-based telecommunications provider Connectel is undertaking an ERP rollout which will be completed in November, 2007.

The first module, which is payroll, is set to go live this week.

The goal is to integrate Connectel's business functions for greater operational and cost visibility.

Connectel provides installation and maintenance services in the telecommunications sector with key Australian telco's including Optus, Telstra and Hutchinson.

Recent projects include the installation of DSL networks nationally and the rollout of 3G mobile networks in Queensland.

Connectel is implementing Pronto Software's flagship solution, Pronto-Xi integrating payroll and financials to more accurately forecast job costs.

The company's managing director, Russell Hinwood, conducted extensive market research before narrowing selection down to a shortlist of five vendors.

"We needed a solution that would enable us to get a better understanding of our business costs and help us manage our projects more effectively," Hinwood said.

"Our main objective was to install a fully integrated solution that had the same user interface for payroll, financials and job management. Pronto's offering met our requirements and the cost was competitive."

Pronto Software's managing director, David Jackman, said Connectel is utilising a range of modules including financials, distribution, payroll, project costing and services management.

Pronto gears its solutions to the midmarket and has more than 1200 customers in 27 countries.
