IFS Poland and system integrator Sygnity S.A. have signed a contract with Poznan Municipal Transport Company Ltd for the implementation of IFS Applications.
The new integrated enterprise system will increase the efficiency of MPK Poznans business processes and the overall availability of its services. The value of the contract is approximately 1.6 million. The system will have 300 users, and the implementation will start in May 2010.
IFS Applications will support all MPK Poznans key business processes, including project management and accounting, financials and controlling, purchasing and logistics, maintenance, document management, human resources and payroll management. The business software will also enable work time registration (RCP) based on input from personal chip cards. The solution will assure real-time access to key enterprise information, the automation of business processes and decrease the need of paper documentation.
"We decided to implement IFS Applications to improve our companys efficiency because it is a modern, integrated ERP system with a proven track record for our type of processes. After the implementation, we expect to utilize our resources better, increase profitability, and provide better transport services to the people of Poznan, said Wojciech Tulibacki, President of MPK Poznan.
"Public transport companies are characterized by a complex structure, with an operation and service levels that depend on the proper maintenance and upkeep of equipment. IFS Applications provides support for all these processes, enabling better utilization of available resources such as personnel, vehicles, workshops and spare parts. This has a positive impact on service quality and contributes to budgetary savings," said Marcin Taranek, President of IFS CEE.
IFS Poland has successfully delivered similar solutions to public transport companies in Cracow and Ldz.
"This solution, which includes IFS Applications and the RCP system, will replace diverse systems that had been in use till now in MPK Poznan. I am sure that both MPK Poznan and the citizens of Poznan will benefit, from the better management of the public transport fleet," said Jacek Kujawa, Vice President of Sygnity S.A.
Sygnity A.S. has previously delivered implementation and services for MPK Poznans electronic ticket system KOMKARTA.
