CN Group Helps NSW Department Save Millions with SAP Business ByDesign

Aug 13, 2013 11:59 AM

In a move to consolidate its software systems and save $12.5 million, the NSW Department of Trade & Investment was looking for a way to transform the way its staff works by significantly reducing paperwork and providing easy, efficient and secure access for mundane but important activities.

Their solution, SAP Business ByDesign, has already been rolled out in the project’s first phase thanks to the help of their project partner, the CN Group. Phase one took just over four months from the time the contract was signed, a rare feat in the enterprise software world.

The CN Group has been named the “key ingredient” to the success of the project. Department chief information officer David Kennedy said the project was “very successful, on time and on budget” and its savings target of $12.5m would be met.

“Throughout the project we have only considered that there was one project team with CN and their resources as part of that project team (and) responsibility for the delivery of the platform-as-a-service payroll engine.

“I think it is fair to say we would not have been able to have achieve what we have without the effort and expertise of CN,” Mr Kennedy said.

According to CN Group Chief Brian Pereira, the cost could be nine to 15 times higher with the traditional solution compared with ByDesign.

“An on-premises traditional SAP solution of similar functionality would have a project timeline of between 12 to 18 months at least.

“Depending on the features, the cost could be nine to 15 times higher with the traditional solution compared with ByDesign,” Mr Pereira said.
