Mesa, Ariz., has selected an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to replace the city’s existing legacy systems, the vendor that was awarded the contract announced this month.
CGI Group Inc., a Fairfax, Va.-based IT services vendor, said Mesa selected its built-for-government AMS Advantage ERP solution. The project, CityEdge, is valued at $15.6 million over five years, which will pay for software, services and maintenance.
“This project represents one of the largest business process changes in the history of the city,” Mesa City Manager Chris Brady said in a press release. The system is expected to reduce the need for “city-specific customizations, enable operational efficiencies, and expand our capabilities as we move to a single solution for financial management, budgeting and human resource management.
The CityEdge project will assist with efforts to eliminate the city’s silos, which currently house its legacy financial, personnel, payroll and timekeeping systems. The new ERP system includes a single source of data that will help drive timely business decisions and assist with improving transparency and accountability in government.
