Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (PRWEB) August 4, 2010

CareWare Systems Sdn Bhd (, a Sage business software reseller based in Malaysia, is preparing to implement its 20th Sage Accpac ERP project and job costing solution for KTA Tenaga, a global engineering firm with offices in Malaysia and Abu Dhabi. The latest sale of Sage Accpac makes CareWare one of the largest resellers of project and job costing solutions in all of Asia.

The number of Malaysian firms competing for construction and engineering projects across Asia has increased in recent years. According to Robert Tan, managing partner of CareWare Systems, one of the best ways Malaysian companies can gain a true competitive edge is by implementing world-class ERP software (enterprise resource planning) with integrated project and job costing functionality. “An uncertain economy and greater global competition has many engineering and construction firms looking for the most accurate and timely business information possible,” says Tan. “An ERP package with a fully integrated project and job costing module provides the insight many firms need to control costs, manage subcontractors and create competitive bid proposals for future work,” says Tan.

KTA Tenaga wanted customizable ERP software that could also seamlessly manage its future international growth and internal reporting needs, which is why the firm selected Sage Accpac from among several other well-known ERP applications. “The strength of Sage Accpac is in its ability to integrate data from across the organization so that decision-makers have the information they need real-time,” says Tan. “Sage Accpac synchronizes and shares data across all departments and parties such as procurement, accounts payable, invoicing, operations, and management.”

One of the reasons why CareWare has developed a leadership position in selling ERP for construction and engineering firms is the deep industry expertise of its consultants and add-on applications it has developed to help its customers gain additional operational efficiency. “What separates us from many software resellers is the completeness of our project and job costing software solution,” Tan notes. “We developed additional functionality to AP in order to help our customers manage subcontractors. We also built a more robust offering around intercompany and project purchasing consolidation as well as business intelligence and CRM integration.”

CareWare has experienced a double digit increase in sales compared to this time last year. According to Tan, not only has growth come from project and job costing consulting but also from manufacturing and business intelligence deployments. “We’re looking at the possibility of having to hire additional consultants to help with the growth,” Tan says. “With the world economic recovery looking brighter, many Malaysian companies are looking to Sage Accpac and CareWare for the competitive edge they need. We are pleased to be part of the formula for long-term success of so many growing companies.”
