Transport firm chooses Geac

Waikato transport firm Tidd Ross Todd has spent more than $350,000 on new business computing systems.

Waikato transport firm Tidd Ross Todd has spent "in excess of $350,000" on new business computing systems.

The Hamilton-based company is to use the Geac StreamLine enterprise solution, coupled with Geac's Mainpac system, which manages assets and plant maintenance.

TRT managing director Kevin Chubb says the StreamLine solution offers a fully-integrated seamless system across the 30-year-old company that will be easy for staff to use.

It will be linked to 35 PCs at the Te Rapa head office and branch offices at Mount Maunganui and Putaruru, plus another office in Brisbane.

Chubb says Streamline will be a fully-integrated business solution, dealing with tasks such as distribution, stock control, job costings, financial and sales reports.

Mainpac will manage the truck fleet, including repairs, staff and jobs.

Before choosing Geac, TRT says it employed an external consultant to see which system would be best to handle the company's growth strategy in parts distribution, trailer fabrication and fleet maintenance.

An initial tender process was cut to a short list of Geac, plus two other unnamed vendors.

Geac's Streamline supply chain management package solution is Microsoft-based, as is Mainpac, which uses a Windows platform.

Chubb expects installation of the systems to start in September, with it operational by the end of November.

Geac national sales manager Nigel Birtwell says the systems bought by TRT are tailor-made for its staff and will be backed by customer support.
