in brief Superannuation specialist Superpartners today
revealed it had picked multinational giants SAP and CSC to provide
it with a new enterprise resource planning system.
The new ERP system is part of the company's recently announced
$70 million technology overhaul. US giant CSC will provide system
integration services in combination with SAP. Previously,
Superpartners had been using a product from Landmark, in
combination with hundreds of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
Superpartners chief executive Greg Camm said the company had
outgrown its current systems. The company currently has over 6
million member accounts and 700,000 employers.
"Migrating onto a new ERP system is absolutely essential for us
to mitigate the costs of ongoing growth, and to provide the
sophisticated reporting and analysis required by our client
industry funds," he said. Superpartners expects to announce the
winner of an IT infrastructure managed services contract soon.
