Enterprise Platform Modernization
As you may know, the County has embarked on one of our most significant business automation and technology projects to date: the selection and implementation of new financial and HR systems, commonly referred to as the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Project. This is an exciting opportunity for the County to modernize our technology and processes!
For the past few months the Executive Steering Committee, along with various project team members, have worked diligently to finalize the contract with a company called Infor. Here is the latest update:
- The contract was approved on December 14.
- We are on track to kick off the project in January.
- We are in the process of putting together the project team necessary for the implementation.
- Plante Moran (our business advisory vendor) will manage the project.
A huge thank you to the team that worked tirelessly, and often into the night, on the contracts and other legal and financial matters so we can stay on track.

This site serves as an information portal for Capital Project WO60201: Enterprise Platform Modernization, or the "ERP" Project.
This project will be the largest project the County has ever undertaken to modernize business-process related technology and optimize the County's overall business practices. The ERP project is necessary because the County's current legacy ERP systems, Advantage and Ceridian, are based on technology that is more than 30 years old. Both systems require specialized expertise to maintain. Over the next three to five years, the hardware and technological components of these systems will become outdated or go off technical support by their respective vendors. This increases the risk that these mission-critical systems might not function properly and substantially increases the cost to run and maintain them. Therefore, it is the strategic direction of the County to utilize more cost effective platforms and develop solutions which will better meet our business needs and reduce cost and risk to all Divisions and Departments.
