Auercon was formed in 2009 through the merger of three consulting engineering firms in South Africa and Australia.
For the merger to succeed, it was vitally important to enable the accurate provision of integrated, global management information of the newly formed group as quickly as possible. To achieve this, different systems and database sources had to be combined to enable meaningful reporting and analysis. Although the group already had a very strong development team, development of the required reporting capability utilising existing resources would have taken too long.
Aurecon subsequently researched the market and appointed B2IT to implement QlikView. Their assistance was excellent, especially with regard to enabling the compilation of complicated and non-standard reports. Since the merger, B2IT has assisted Aurecon to expand its reporting capability to include the majority of its management reports, as well as enabled the development team to be self-sufficient. Their assistance has been invaluable…. Dawie Kotzé (CIO)
