Airport Authority Of India Goes Live With ERP Modernisation

KPIT Cummins Infosystems announced the Go-Live of SAP ERP for the Airport Authority of India (AAI). As a part of E-Governance initiative, AAI decided to implement ERP in HR, Finance, Material Management and Project System functions to improve productivity, efficiency and transparency under the project named “PARIVARTAN.” KPIT was selected as the implementation partner in June 2012.

The SAP ERP implementation by KPIT Cummins covers 125 Airports across India and is being synchronised with the new financial year. The system will handle payroll accounting for nearly 19000 employees of AAI at various Airports across the country. The system will also be integrated with the legacy systems such as Electronic Tendering and Procurement System (ETAPS), Airport Information Management System (AIMS) etc. With this implementation the organisation shall become process driven and substantially paperless. Apart from automating the HR, Finance, Material Management and Project Systems functions, the system will provide MIS dashboards for senior management.

V.P. Agrawal, Chairman, AAI said, "This new enterprise software implementation will not only improve productivity, efficiency and cost effectiveness but will also bring high level of transparency in the vital HR and finance functions within the organisation. The ERP implementation will enable standardisation of processes across all the AAI operations in India and will become an accurate and single source of information."

Pawan Sharma, President, KPIT Cummins Infosystems said, "We leveraged our proven expertise and experience in large scale ERP implementations to partner with the Airport Authority of India in their ERP modernisation program which included digitisation of over 20 years of HR data of more than 18000 employees. We brought in all regional and main offices under an integrated single system instance software solution and integrated it with various pre-existing legacy applications."
