Milford, MI (PRWEB) December 14, 2005
MiPro Consulting, a world class PeopleSoft services organization, today announced that the company has engaged with Learning Care Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: LCGI), parent company of Tutor Time Child Care/Learning Centers and Childtime Learning Centers, to implement the second phase of their PeopleSoft enterprise solutions. Leveraging the company’s expertise in working with PeopleSoft solutions, MiPro Consulting has teamed with Learning Care Group to deploy their Asset Management, Benefits Administration, Purchasing, and Portal solutions across the organization in a rapid time-frame.
Headquartered in Novi, Michigan, Learning Care Group is one of the nation’s largest publicly-traded providers of early child care and educational services. After conducting an extensive evaluation process involving both large consulting organizations as well as boutique firms, Learning Care Group selected MiPro Consulting to run their implementation based on the company’s intense focus on PeopleSoft solutions, proven team work, and impressive talent portfolio of consultants. Averaging more than seven years of PeopleSoft experience, MiPro’s consulting professionals have been identified as leaders in their respective fields and bring a deep understanding of implementing PeopleSoft’s technology to world class organizations.
“Our industry is rather unique in its technology needs and uses — child care and early education has traditionally been not heavily invested in the latest technology advances, but that is quickly changing,” said Chris Pesola, Associate Director of Application Services at Learning Care Group. “Additionally, at Learning Care Group, we have over 450 small, rather independent businesses operating at each of our centers, as well as hundreds of support staff that need up-to-date information on all of our operations. We needed a partner that understood this complexity and could address it with experienced staff and innovative solutions. MiPro Consulting could offer us both by providing experience to successfully deploy the second phase of our PeopleSoft solutions and also help us maximize our investments in technologies already in place.”
MiPro’s PeopleSoft consulting services include implementations, upgrades, solution optimization and application management. As the consultancy began to gain more insight into the second phase of the Learning Care Group implementation project, they developed a technology strategy to help them leverage their new Portal solution to the fullest. The Portal solution will now provide a Web-based intranet that enables the Learning Care Group Support Central staff, as well as Tutor Time and Childtime Center Directors, Area and Regional Managers, to have direct access to update and run HR and Financial reports, in addition to company news, email and surveys. Also, the recent announcement of the proposed acquisition by A.B.C. Learning Centres Limited, Australia’s largest provider of private child care services, posed another information exchange challenge for the company. Upon completion of the Portal roll-out, Learning Care Group will be able to collaborate and share documents with A.B.C.’s employees - regardless of location or time-zone.
“MiPro was formed by many of PeopleSoft’s most sought after consultants and product experts, enabling us to provide superior consulting services for organizations looking to gain the most value possible from their PeopleSoft solutions,” said Chris Bishop, President of MiPro Consulting. “In working with Learning Care Group, we strive to deliver ‘Outrageous Customer Service’ to ensure that we are not only helping them complete a successful roll-out of their PeopleSoft solutions today, but that upon completion of the implementation, we will have transferred knowledge to Learning Care Group allowing their team members to become even more experienced with the PeopleSoft solutions.”
Learning Care Group’s Childtime Learning Centers and Tutor Time Child Care/Learning Centers provide services to more than 69,000 children between the ages of six weeks and 12 years of age. The children are cared for and educated by 7,400 dedicated Center Directors and staff. A team of 150 employees provides support within a culture of service excellence.
