An Engineering Company Optimizes Project Administration and Accounting with Sage Accpac ERP.

Dolphin Engineering (m) Sdn Bhd is one of the leading engineering companies based in Selangor. She is the dominant Solution Provider for the Integration oil palm process and palm oil milling industry in the region. Its main business is machinery & engineering and its main product is hydraulic power park system, hydraulic cylinder.

In view of their bushiness growth Dolphin needed to replace their existing local system with a project based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that could give the company detailed control over the administration of complex engineering projects.

Dolphin has strong criteria and narrowed downed its evaluation to the main requirements that are unique to an engineering project based companies. This helps them to eliminate many erp systems that are not geared toward project based and cut short their evaluation process. Careware Systems was selected as it understands and was able to demo the software toward their unique criteria. Sage Accpac ERP will help Dolphin to monitor and track cost from the design, development, manufacture, integration, installation and testing commissioning of their technological products for palm oil milling customers in the region and internationally.

Some of the immediate benefits and clear business advantages by using Sage Accpac are:

• First, all engineering personnel can process their data (time card) directly by logging into the Web-enabled Accpac central server at the headquarters through a through browser, so time cost and finance can immediately be updated on line. Sage Accpac need not be install at the notebook of the engineers who are at site and always on the move.

• Second, project accountants have insight into the progress of projects. During a pre-calculation process, the project managers attribute a number of hours to a given project. Project accountants will know of Time cost, (idle time, split time, chargeable time, and non billable time) of the project. The system also track material and equipments cost and work in progress. The project manager can follow the progress of the project and monitor cost overrun.

• Third, efficient accounting as the system will handle all the difference type of revenue recognition methods and also retaininage accounts. Progress billing and project purchases are charge to the respective job and phase automatically. The old system cannot handle such complexity of accounts. Now every function is fully integrated into one central database that is run on the local Area Network as well as Remote Access via the Web.

With Sage Accpac ERP Dolphin Engineering will be on the pulse of their business and its augurs well for the future.
