Asseco Group will build a new IT system for the city of Łódź
Implementation of an ERP solution at the Łódź City Hall is the first IT project on such a large scale implemented by a local authority in Poland. The project, along with technical support services, is worth PLN 28 m. Asseco Data Systems SA, specializing in IT solutions for local authorities, lead the winning Consortium.
The system is set to support finance management of the city of Łódź. ERP, which stands for Enterprise Resource Planning, will provide a smooth flow of information between the central unit – the City Hall – and its 40 subordinate municipal units. The system will be implemented in all finance and property areas, including management of the city budget, its contracts, invoices, VAT payments, as well as management of tax proceeds and other charges paid by residents.
Jarosław Jastrzębski, Vice President of Asseco Data Systems SA, responsible for the Local Administration Division: Local and regional authorities perform a wide variety of tasks, which are often carried out by separate units within a city. A single, uniform system will provide the city of Łódź officials with full and complete information, necessary to run their city efficiently. The ERP system in Łódź is the first project of its kind, implemented by the local authorities, whereby a complete and integrated IT system is replaced by a more modern system. We believe other cities will follow in Łódź’s footsteps and this will become our flagship project.
The agreement provides for the implementation of a tailor-made ERP software addressing the needs of the city of Łódź, data migration from the previously used programs, and integration of the new solution with some of the applications currently in operation in the City Hall. Asseco Group will also train system’s future users.
This project will be implemented by a consortium of three Asseco Group members: Asseco Data Systems (Consortium Leader), Asseco Poland, and DahliaMatic. Implementation is set to be executed within 4 years.
