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 Over the next three to five years, the hardware and technological components of these systems will become outdated or go off technical support by their respective vendors.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.
