East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC)
Supplying energy to 511,000 homes, farms and businesses throughout East Kentucky, EKPC had reached a point where they knew they needed to make a change. Antiquated systems and processes were making it difficult to grow. EKPC was operating on PeopleSoft Financials and Supply Chain 7.5 (unsupported) and HCM 9.0 all on an Informix database.
After an extensive evaluation EKPC selected MIPRO to upgrade to 9.0 Financials and Supply Chain applications, implement new HCM modules, switch to an Oracle database and implement Oracle’s PeopleSoft ALM replacing their current maintenance management solution. MIPRO engaged with EKPC in June 2009 and successfully deployed the applications on-time and within budget May 2010.
MIPRO coordinated the efforts of the joint customer/vendor team totaling 54 individuals. Key roles for MIPRO included an on-site Project Manager, on-site functional leads, change management/training expertise as well as an off-shore technical resource team. As a part of every process MIPRO included knowledge transfer to EKPC’s staff.
“I can’t tell you how much we appreciate MIPRO’s resources. They are all great in their individual specialties, as a team they are unstoppable. Vijay specifically is beyond talented. He is a great problem solver and doesn’t shy away from helping us at any time” — Robbin King, Project Lead, EKPC HR Generalist
