“It’s progressing as planned,” said Vince Marchesano of Vivad Technologies, LLC, giving the county’s Enterprise Resource Planning software update its first positive monthly report in a long time during July 21 meeting of the Board of Supervisor’s finance committee.
After negotiating a settlement with the company previously responsible for implementing the new software, Application Software Technology, the county hired Oracle America Corporation on May 9. It is now finishing implementation of ORACLE eBusiness Suite, which its company created. Oracle was previously hired to consult when the project began to derail, and produced a report critical of AST’s work.
After refunds from the AST settlement, the board appropriated an additional $4.8 million to finish the ERP update. Work is scheduled to be completed in July 2017.
