Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board Limited (HPSEBL) has chosen software from SAP AG to integrate, automate and manage resources across its organization.
SAP, along with system integrator TCS, emerged as a clear leader for securing the contract, with highest technical and commercial scores that met HPSEBL’s IT requirements of improved customer response time and resource utilization, increased productivity and better financial management.
HPSEBL has electrified more than 17,000 villages and has a current customer base of 19 lacs and growing, with an existing hydro potential of 20,415 megawatts. Currently, HPSEBL’s IT department supports billing, GIS- and GPS-based asset mapping, meter data acquisition system and energy accounting functions.
The board was seeking an IT solution that would integrate islands of information across the organization — including financial accounting, human resources, payroll, material management, maintenance management and project management — to provide a single view to top management.
To consolidate information across the organization, SAP will build and manage a centralized management information system at HPSEBL using enterprise resource planning software SAP® ERP, including financial and controlling, material management, enterprise asset management, human resources, payroll and employee self services functionalities integrated with an industry solution for utilities and further complemented by a robust data warehousing engine.
