Jefferson County Public Schools
Jeffco is the largest school districts in Colorado and ranks as the 35th largest in the United States. With more than 14,000 employees, Jeffco has 152 schools located over 777 square miles. Wanting to continue to gain more value from their Oracle PeopleSoft applications, Jeffco focused their attention to the challenges they were experiencing with their legacy Maintenance Management solution.
The work order system for managing maintenance, both preventive and break-fix, was experiencing challenges in terms of scheduling, procurement, inventory, and cost accounting. Couple this with a lack of integration with the PeopleSoft financials application and there was real opportunity for functionality improvements as well as cost reductions.
In July of 2010, Jeffco selected MIPRO to lead a three-phase implementation of the Oracle PeopleSoft ALM solution. The first phase addresses improving maintenance management while fully integrating to the PeopleSoft financials installation.
“Our goal was to select an industry leading consulting organization to implement PeopleSoft ALM. It became very clear, that MIPRO was the only organization that had industry expertise and the talent to lead our implementation. MIPRO brought a team of consultants to Jeffco that hit the road running. The implementation has been fun and rewarding, largely due to the leadership of MIPRO.” — Scott Paulson, Manager, Jeffco Schools
