Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) February 3, 2009
After a detailed and thorough RFB process, the Water Corporation of Western Australia (Water Corp) has appointed Melbourne based Sky Technologies Consulting (STC) to deliver the initial scoping and planning phase for their MCP project.
Despite strong competition, STC were selected as the preferred vendor for what is believed to be one of the largest SAP mobility projects in Australia in 2009.
The initial 3 month project is to plan, design and blueprint a next generation Mobile Work Management Solution for use by the field engineering teams, who are responsible for the providing maintenance services for the world's largest geographically dispersed water utility.
The application will enable the provisioning of maintenance orders as well as the collection of field data to be integrated into Water Corp's SAP plant maintenance system. The solution will be deployed to over 700 field workers across Western Australia.
"The deployment of this solution will be delivered on our world leading mobility platform, SkyMobile. This will replace the existing bespoke solution which has been in operation for the past 4 years at Water Corporation. Whilst the intention is to replace the existing functionality, it will include additional value added enhancements. SkyMobile will deliver the mobility platform around which Water Corporation can deliver their current and future mobility needs" commented Troy O'Connor, CEO, Sky Technologies.
"The Water Corp sought to replace their existing bespoke application with a single mobile computing platform, which will give the organization the ability to mobilize other parts of their business.
