The single system will bring the recently acquired Taylor Woodrow operations into the same IT methodology as Vinci Construction (previously Norwest Holst), Crispin & Borst and Pel Interiors.
The IT software package includes financials, procurement, commercials and document management. It replaces legacy systems that have been in place in 20 different Vinci divisions for the past 10 years.
The new software will handle all VinciвЂ™s accounting and purchasing requirements - which has 1,300 users.
Also, up to 2,500 of the groupвЂ™s employees will be able to access the systems to record timesheet data online in a вЂself-serviceвЂ™ approach as the workflow tools can be configured to support electronic approval and authorisation.ADVERTISEMENT
Derek Hollaway, senior finance director, said the groupвЂ™s plant business is already using the Coins Plant Manager application which is вЂњaimed at enabling all UK sites to requisition plant via a web-based electronic catalogueвЂќ.
Vinci UK companies raise over 50,000 purchase orders and process around 340,000 invoices a year.
The latest deal enables Vinci to trade electronically with suppliers as a result of the electronic catalogue procurement software which eliminates the need for paper.
