RPS takes a step further towards greater connectivity assisted by Hitachi Solutions

Hitachi Solutions is proud to announce that RPS, a leading global professional services firm, is working with our teams around the world, to replace multiple systems and processes with a single integrated technology solution.  The decision is central to RPS’ strategy of investing to accelerate growth by having a single, global, business platform that supports the diverse nature of its business and makes it easy to connect its deep expertise.

Replacing a host of different systems that came about through multiple acquisitions, the upgraded and modernised IT infrastructure will provide one platform and standardised processes which will be used by all users across six continents, underpinning RPS’ strategy to make complex easy and operate as ‘one RPS’.      

Based upon Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, plus the Hitachi Solutions Essentials for Professional Services accelerator, the solution will seamlessly connect 5,600 professionals working across 125 countries.

On the importance of this programme to RPS, Gary Young, Group Finance Director said:

“Data, efficient processes, business systems and new technologies will play a critical role in our continuing success. The future for RPS is about being at the forefront of changing market trends, identifying growth opportunities and delivering complex solutions in a way that is easy to understand and implement. This investment in a new global enterprise resource planning platform will give us a stronger competitive edge in all the markets that we operate in.”

“We are immensely proud that RPS has chosen Hitachi Solutions as its global partner for this critical programme. The RPS team have operated in the spirit of collaboration and partnership that is so vital to the success of such transformational programmes. Allied to the scalability of Dynamics 365 and Hitachi Solutions’ methodology and IP, we can foresee a very successful outcome for RPS.” adds Simon Drake Senior Vice President and UK General Manager, Hitachi Solutions.

Gary Young concludes: “Having worked with Hitachi Solutions in Australia, we were impressed with the experience and commitment of their consultants. The appropriateness of the product, that Hitachi have done this before to the size and scale we need, and the culture fit make Hitachi a natural global partner for RPS. The Essentials for Professional Services Accelerator, and Hitachi’s pragmatism, complements RPS’ approach and desire to implement the solution as quickly and smoothly as possible.”
