PBB had a requirement to integrate 3 separate operations into one business unit. Recognizing the need to move to a common platform, we engaged Litcom to work with us. Litcom assisted us in determining our needs and conducted a Software Selection process to choose an integrated Transportation Management System / Financial Management System.
Leveraging their proven Technology Selection process, Litcom helped us prepare a business case and project charter which formed the foundation of our Selection activity. Litcom led the project and provided subject matter specialists where necessary including Project Management Office and Change Management support. The project involved cross functional teams within our division and was organized and facilitated by Litcom resources. At the conclusion of the project, and after a rigorous investigation of various solutions, our project team selected the vendors who they believed would most effectively support our business.
At that stage, we asked Litcom to continue to lead the process by conducting the Technology (Software & Hardware) implementation. To deliver this solution, Litcom involved the appropriate technology partners to build the infrastructure / communications environment. We operated under an extremely aggressive timetable for the implementation as we could not jeopardize the operation’s busy season. As such, the entire implementation had to go live within six months. This project involved 60 project team members from PBB, two major software vendors, multiple technology vendors / providers, over one hundred and fifty business users, and many suppliers who work with our company.
Litcom effectively managed this complex project and delivered it on time and on budget. They proved to be easy to work with and were able to deal successfully with all project challenges. Despite this being a high pressure project, Litcom resources brought the right attitude and created the right environment to achieve success.
