FLANDERS, N.J. and REDWOOD SHORES, Calif.,
Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
EP²M, LLC, an industry-leading systems integrator and Gold-level member of
Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), and Oracle announced today the completion of a successful go-live, capping a series of strategic Oracle Utilities application implementations and integrations for
Middlesex Water Company, a 115-year old water utility company which owns and operates regulated water utility and wastewater systems serving more than 450,000 residents in
Today's announcement underscores EP
²M's industry-leading reputation as a valued systems integrator with a proven record of successful multi-product implementations and integrations for
Oracle Utilities solutions.
²M, in partnership with
CH2M Hill, first completed the successful roll-out of
Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management late last year, integrating it with Middlesex Water Company's existing Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing. Implementation of
Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management, selected in 2011, was completed in spring 2012.
The three-way integration between these applications has now been completed, further enhancing the Field Work process and increasing automation of the Middlesex Water Asset Management Program. The project has also resulted in enhanced company-wide timekeeping, consolidated supply chain management, as well as asset-based work order management.
This most recent project phase succeeded in delivering full integration of the three Oracle Utilities applications into Middlesex Water Company's other key business
the Oracle E-Business Suite for accounting, ADP for payroll, and Geographic Information Systems for map viewing of water-related infrastructure.
²M and CH2M Hill's deployment of the Oracle Field Work Process Integration Pack for the multiple integrations allowed the team to meet critical time and budget goals, while delivering greater transparency into business processes and a truly integrated enterprise solution that automates and streamlines operations across critical business, customer service, field and related systems.
"Middlesex Water Company has seen immediate improvements in field crew productivity, dispatcher efficiency, emergency response, cost management and customer satisfaction. We have confidence the completion of this final phase will further increase efficiencies across the enterprise and continue to deliver even greater benefits," said
Richard M. Risoldi, Vice President and COO of Middlesex Water Company. "The specialists at EP
²M collaborated with us and CH2M Hill to integrate a complicated network of new and existing applications from Oracle that will ensure our essential information systems keep pace with our growth.
This successful implementation reinforces EP
²M's leadership and expertise and has enhanced the service we provide to our customers," added Risoldi.
"As a large and growing company, it was essential to provide a truly integrated enterprise solution designed to handle Middlesex Water Company's complex business structure," said EP
Dave Mulit. "By using Oracle Field Work Process Integration Pack, we were able to keep this intricate sequence of integrations and implementations within budget and on schedule while minimizing service level disruptions, particularly during Middlesex Water's busy winter season."
"Oracle Utilities is committed to helping utilities improve customer experiences and operational efficiencies," said
Rodger Smith, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Utilities. "Middlesex Water Company's selection of multiple Oracle products over time is testimony to the business value we deliver to utilities."
