Fujitsu Wins $7.3M ERP Project at Lotterywest

  • 27 November, 2007 10:19

<p>Integrated SAP Solution to Drive Efficiency and Growth for WA Lotteries Commission</p>
<p>The Lotteries Commission of Western Australia (Lotterywest) has contracted Fujitsu Australia Limited to deliver a $7.3million Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution based on SAP Business All-in-One. This fully integrated, best practice SAP ERP solution is a core component of Lotterywest’s business transformation project which will see Lotterywest totally replace its gaming and business systems. The Project will ensure that Lotterywest has the necessary systems to provide a solid and flexible platform for continued excellence in lottery sales and the financial return to the West Australian community.</p>
<p>Fujitsu won the project after an intensive 12 month evaluation process that recognised its professional, consultative approach and ability to deliver a value for money solution that addressed Lotterywest’s needs.</p>
<p>Lotterywest CEO, Jan Stewart, said Fujitsu’s extensive ERP business solutions expertise, the quality of its technology and its willingness to work closely with Lotterywest to understand its complex requirements were a powerful combination.</p>
<p>“At Lotterywest, we pride ourselves on running a truly world-class lottery. We are looking forward to managing our business using the latest technology and working with a partner who has shown a real understanding of our business.”</p>
<p>Fujitsu advocated a best practice delivery approach to the project, based on a leveraged model that enables rapid and flexible deployment of best-in-class processes. This will allow the joint project team to implement the first round of functionality by the end of this financial year, with phase two due for completion by the end of 2008.</p>
<p>Phase 1 of the project will encompass customer relationship management, financial management and procurement, human capital management, which will connect to the new Intralot gaming system; while Phase 2 will incorporate grants management, document management, occupational, health and safety and business analytics.</p>
<p>Since Lotterywest (uniquely in Australia) distributes the profits from its lottery games back into the WA community, Fujitsu will work with Lotterywest to further develop and integrate grants management, assessment and approval processes as part of the SAP solution.</p>
<p>Fujitsu’s General Manager – Western Region, Tom Hayes, said the result is a strong endorsement of Fujitsu’s knowledge and experience of SAP, and its close partnership with the software vendor both nationally and globally.</p>
<p>“While Fujitsu has extensive experience with SAP deployments elsewhere, Lotterywest is our first SAP project in Western Australia. This win highlights our ability not only to outperform our competitors in the ERP space, but also to overcome geography and time zones to deliver value for our clients.”</p>
