CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island - Sept. 29, 2015 - PRLog -- September 29, 2015 - Parker, Colorado & Charlottetown, PE, Canada – Cogsdale Corporation, a division of N. Harris Computer Corporation, is pleased to announce that Parker Water and Sanitation District (PWSD) has selected Cogsdale’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and implementation services to implement an integrated suite of applications that will meet the District’s present and future needs.

Established in 1962, PWSD, a quasi-municipal corporation and political subdivision of the state, provides a high-quality water service. After many years of growth and changing technologies, PWSD’s applications became standalone with little or no interconnectivity between the systems. As a result, PWSD released an RFP In February, 2015, looking for the right ERP solution to solve inefficient integration challenges that resulted in multiple entries of data, along with a reliance of spreadsheets to capture, track and report on data.

Cogsdale answered PWSD’s RFP and won the competition over a number of competitors because PWSD shared the Cogsdale vision of an integrated ERP system for their Financial Management, Asset Management, People Management, and Project Management needs. The power, flexibility, and scalability of the proven Microsoft Dynamics GP platform, backed by Microsoft SQL technology, aligned with PWSD’s long-term goals to support their rapidly expanding service territory many years into the future.

PWSD was also impressed with Cogsdale’s track record, industry expertise, and the ability to meet and exceed PWSD’s requirements and fully realize PWSD’s objectives. Steve Hellman, Chief Financial Officer at Parker Water and Sanitation District, comments, “During our entire RFP process for selection of an ERP, Cogsdale consistently finished at the top of our scoring matrix for all competitors. In addition, we selected Cogsdale for their utility-specific/utility-driven solutions, the Microsoft Dynamics platform and robust reporting tools, integration with GIS, and their overall project approach and methodology.”

While not included in the initial project scope, Cogsdale’s additional integrated modules such as Work Management, Customer Service Management, GIS and Field Mobility were also determining factors in PWSD’s decision.  “It was a unanimous decision for the Board to go with the Cogsdale solution,” says Hellman.

Ryan Cawley, Vice President of Business at Development added “Cogsdale is very excited to expand our customer base into the state of Colorado.  Throughout the selection process it was clear to me that the Cogsdale solution was in alignment with PWSD’s stated goal of enhancing operational effectiveness by making more timely, accurate and complete information available to District employees, Board members, customers and vendors.  We are excited to build on this partnership as we work towards another successful implementation.”
