Accenture designed, developed and deployed the solution, working with Avanade to host it on a scalable cloud platform. CPIM incorporates the industry leading practices for managing engineering projects and integrates with corporate systems such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) to offer the end-to-end project lifecycle from project initiation, tendering, scheduling, materials management, cost monitoring, inspection and invoicing to project closure.
The team also developed a custom Android application for site engineers to access the CPIM on tablets, and leveraged Avanade infrastructure design to meet technical requirements.
“This has been a truly collaborative effort with Towngas,” said Kenneth Cheng, Managing Director - Resources Lead, Greater China, Accenture. “It’s a great example of digital transformation of project management tools, from planning to execution to making faster and more insightful business decisions. Going forward, it creates a model for utility and oil and gas companies in Greater China to apply cloud and software-as-a service (SaaS) capabilities to project and portfolio management using the latest infrastructure and mobile technologies.”
