Anaheim, CA and Williston, VT, April 17, 2012 - Harris Computer Systems (Harris), a subsidiary of Constellation Software Inc. (TSX: CSU) is pleased to announce that Anaheim Public Utilities of Anaheim, CA (Anaheim) has selected Systems & Software (S&S), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Harris, to implement its enQuesta solution.
Anaheim, in conjunction with AAC Consulting, Inc., developed a detailed Request for Proposal to select and implement a proven Customer Information System (CIS) that would replace their legacy CIS application and would add automated customer self-service, a new cashiering system, and mobile service order capabilities, all to better serve their water and electric customers.
Anaheim wanted a system that would meet all the requirements of their RFP and provide a user-friendly platform for internal and external customers. Anaheim chose S&S's enQuesta Solution because it best met their needs, and they stated that Harris' long-term commitment to the maintenance and support of their products was an integral part of their decision-making process.
Mark Lopez, Business Information System Manager and a key member of Anaheim's selection team said: "We selected S&S because they offer a system that we believe is the best fit for Anaheim. We are excited to begin this new partnership and look forward to a successful project."
Raja Mukherjee, S&S's General Manager, commented that "Anaheim Public Utilities is a great addition to the S&S family of customers. The direction they are moving toward, providing market-leading customer service and customer service options, fits nicely within the strategic direction of S&S. Anaheim complements our customer base and further strengthens our market position in California."
Systems & Software and Anaheim are implementing enQuesta with a Go-Live planned for 2014. S&S is confident that they can provide the same record of continued success which they have demonstrated to all of their other California customers.
