Councillor message - Enterprise Resource Planning - Cr Sonia Bennetto

In the 2018/2019 budget, Council announced the upgrade of its IT systems through the implementation of new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software.

This is a major system upgrade which will result in greater internal control and accountability across Council’s departments.
 
The ERP Implementation Project is a key performance indicator within Council’s Corporate Plan 2018-2023.
 
Once established, the new ERP system will provide an integrated platform that will help Council to:
  • reduce costs
  • improve efficiencies and our service delivery to the community
  • streamline processes through the centralised management of council operations
Given the technical nature of the project, a multi-phased process is required to ensure sufficient time and resources are provided for implementation of the new software. 
 
Phase 1 went live on the 4th of March and will replace the existing systems for accounting, corporate services and asset management. Payroll and human resource management will follow in the coming months. 
 
Council’s key project staff have been extremely busy undergoing system training, while at the same time, performing critical tasks to ensure the successful transition from existing system processes to the new platform.
 
I acknowledge and commend the dedication and tenacity of those staff members who have been working tirelessly to ensure the successful execution of Phase 1 of the project.
 
- Councillor Sonia Bennetto, Deputy Mayor
