We helped a Port Authority modernise its systems and improve business processes - Case Study
A large port authority, based in WA, was struggling with outdated systems and inefficient processes. They needed a roadmap for improvement.
We conducted a rapid review of their systems and processes across operations and support functions, highlighting pain points and opportunities to improve. Options were considered and prioritised into a 5 year roadmap, supported by a full TCO model and business case for the preferred way forward.
Stakeholders and users bought in to the change journey ahead to modernise the organisation.
Solution Minds Consulting then delved deeper into a comprehensive business process analysis exercise, mapping and improving all operational and support processes across the enterprise.
It became apparent that upgrading encumbent systems would not deliver expected benefits, so we led the Port through a enhaustive evaluation project to select new ERP, DMS, OHS and Operational systems, as well as partners for the implementation and on-going support.
We then continued the partnership into the implementation phase, providing independent trusted advisor services (supporting and advising the Sponsor and Steering Committee), project management and change management. The implementation was like many transformations - not easy with many risks and issues along the way. The Port is now live with new systems and improved business processes.
