Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) owned numerous disparate information systems with little integration. Most of these systems were controlled by separate departments, and access to the information was managed by only a few individuals. HRSD processed all reviews and approvals of financial and HR transactions using paper-based and manual processes. The District lacked the capability for self-service HR and Payroll.
HRSD sought to re-engineer business processes and integrate best practices with the implementation of a first-rate ERP system. With the success of this project, HRSD pursued:
- Real-time access to information;
- Enhanced organizational transparency and a breakdown of information silos;
- Elimination of many related shadow systems;
- Reduction of manual processes and elimination of paper-based procedures;
- Enhanced employee self-service;
- Robust reporting capabilities across the organization;
- Greatly enhanced business intelligence and analytics; and
- A scalable, configurable, and user-friendly system.
I have been in IT services and management for over 25 years in both commercial and government sectors, this has been the best project of this magnitude that I have seen.”Don Corrado CIO, Hampton Roads Sanitation District
Solutions & Benefits
AST’s implementation of the world-class Oracle E-Business Suite resulted in a fully-integrated financial system, providing real-time approval routing and management, consolidated data for reporting, and full self-service access to employee data for employees and managers, including mobile reporting of timecards.
Based on AST’s on-time and within-budget delivery of the initial implementation, HRSD decided to continue its partnership with AST in order to implement:
- Oracle WebCenter for data integration and approvals management;
