Major California deep water port boosts productivity with Microsoft Dynamics GP, Prophix and KleinPort Management Information System.
San Diego, CA, October 24th, 2012 – Port of Stockton recently went live with its Secure System (“S3”) Project comprising of comprehensive integrated port and financial management solutions. FMT Consultants, LLC and Klein Systems Group Ltd. have successfully implemented and integrated multiple technologies including Microsoft Dynamics GP, Prophix, Microsoft Business Portal and KleinPort. The launch of the new system comes after four months of close collaboration with FMT Consultants and Klein who were selected as service providers earlier this year.
FMT Consultants, a leading Southern California provider of IT Management solutions, has managed and carried out the implementation and integration of Microsoft Dynamics GP, a robust ERP solution used to manage the Port of Stockton’s financials, payroll and human resources. In addition to Dynamics GP, FMT installed Microsoft Business Portal for employee self-service and Prophix, a Corporate Performance Management solution for budgeting, dashboards and financial reporting. Klein Systems Group Ltd. (Klein), a wholly owned subsidiary of HITT nv in The Netherlands, implemented its market-leading KleinPort Management Information System which provides fully integrated marine operations, property management and billing capabilities. FMT Consultants and Klein have worked closely during all stages of the implementation to ensure a comprehensive and seamless integration of all applications, and deliver an all-encompassing enterprise level solution.
The Port of Stockton selected FMT Consultants and Klein Systems Group as service providers after a rigorous RFP and interview process in early 2012. The solutions recommended by FMT and Klein were chosen over competing systems due to their long-term value and comprehensiveness.
