SYSTEM SELECTION AND IMPLEMENTATION
VODAFONE / VIVENDI
MATT HEAP: GROUP FINANCE OPERATIONS MANAGER
Vizzavi - was a joint venture formed between Vodafone UK and Vivendi. The newly formed entity, with seed capital in excess of $100 million, was a true start up. The biggest and most important start-up initiative from an operational perspective was the scope, sourcing and implementation of a multi language, multi currency ERP system.
With new operational staff joining on a weekly basis and costs starting to escalate, Matt led the scope and system selection process. Oracle 11i was chosen as the ERP solution and KPMG engaged as implementation partners. The system was implemented and rolled out to eight country offices over a 12 month period and integration with revenue and billing technology was completed.
Vizzavi's technology and revenue model subsequently evolved into the global phenomenon - Vodafone Live.
