MILFORD, Mich., May 30, 2013 – MIPRO, a Milford, Mich.-based consultancy specializing in implementations, upgrades and optimizations of Oracle’s PeopleSoft applications, announced today that they have been retained by Covanta Energy, one of the world’s largest owners and operators of infrastructure for the conversion of waste-to-energy and other renewable energy projects. MIPRO Managing Partner and CEO Jim Prokes made the announcement.
“We are excited for the opportunity to work with Covanta to develop an implementation strategy that will meet their needs head-on,” said Prokes. “By utilizing our knowledge and passion for PeopleSoft applications, we can help design and create solutions for Covanta that will enhance and streamline their business processes.”
MIPRO was selected by Covanta to lead a two-phase PeopleSoft Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) implementation project called IMPACT at their 40 EfW facilities across the country. Phase one will involve the implementation of the Maintenance Management and Inventory module, as well as any required configurations with existing modules in a phased rollout to three pilot facilities with deployment scheduled for fourth quarter 2013. Phase two will commence upon successful deployment of phase one at the pilot sites and will involve a full rollout to Covanta’s remaining 43 facilities.
“We selected MIPRO for this implementation based upon the PeopleSoft-specific knowledge and real-world ALM experience they bring to the table,” said Frank Miller, VP, Maintenance Technology for Covanta Energy. “MIPRO really listened to our objectives and, as a result, is initiating this project with a comprehensive understanding of our business process needs.”
MIPRO anticipates that full deployment for the project to all Covanta facilities across the country will be completed by fourth quarter 2014.
Founded in 2005, MIPRO has a single point of focus: deploying PeopleSoft implementations, upgrades, optimizations and training for maximum strategic benefit, including PeopleSoft HCM, PeopleSoft Financial, PeopleSoft ALM and PeopleSoft SCM, as well as solutions relative to Business Intelligence and Fusion. The Milford, Mich.-based consultancy is driven by passion for three things: employing the best in the business, success of its clients and the PeopleSoft product.
