The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2011-05-25T23:20:00Z International College of Management, Sydney Selects Tripoint for Fast Deployment of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solution 2011-05-25T23:20:00Z international-college-of-management-sydney-selects-tripoint-for-fast-deployment-of-oracle-s-peoplesoft-enterprise-campus-solution Sydney, 26 May 2011 – The International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) has engaged Tripoint Corporation, a privately owned business and systems integration consulting company, to provide rapid deployment of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solution. The software will provide a platform to manage the College's growing annual enrolments, to automate student administration and course scheduling, and to provide local and international students with online self-service functionality. Implementation is now under way and the solution is expected to be ready for a limited pilot in October 2011 prior to being formally launched in time for next year's student intake in January 2012. ICMS is a business college that specialises in degrees for professional services industries. Located in Manly, New South Wales, it attracts more than one thousand students annually from over 50 countries around the world. The College selected the combined Tripoint/Oracle PeopleSoft solution based on the need for fast deployment with minimal risk. Among the key considerations were Tripoint's experience in the education sector, its rapid deployment methodology and pre-configured education templates that cut down implementation time from 18 months to under eight months, thus saving costs and resources. In addition, ICMS stipulated that it required a demonstrable tight working relationship between its software vendor and service organisation. ICMS General Manager, Frank Prestipino, said, “We wanted a supplier who was prepared to partner with us to develop a solution and who could understand the way we operate. Tripoint demonstrated professionalism in the way they went about solving problems for us even in the early stages and they are clearly a service-oriented organisation. When we met with them we felt we could trust them.” Tripoint will be able to deliver a fast and economical implementation because it has configured the Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solution in a template offering specifically configured for the Australian market, complete with an implementation methodology, managed application services, and customised training materials. Tripoint will follow a four-stage project management strategy to plan, design, build/integrate and manage implementation. It will also supply customised training materials to support ICMS as it makes the switch to the new system. Vaughan Stibbard, CEO, Tripoint Corporation, said, ”We are delighted to have been awarded this engagement and look forward to deploying our proven and extensive skills and services and experience in the higher education sector to achieve maximum success for ICMS as it sets out on a path for robust growth in the years ahead. At the same time, we look forward to enhancing an already great relationship with Oracle as this project gains momentum.” The first big test for the implementation will occur in October when ICMS and Tripoint conduct a pilot program for admissions which will run in parallel to the College's existing legacy admissions system. Results will be used to further refine development in the lead-up to going live in January 2012.

Platinum Insight is a key addition to Tripoint’s growth strategy and will help the company accelerate its presence in the financial services sector. It will also provide the scale and support framework to offer customers a broader range of solutions in business and systems integration consulting and application support. Platinum Insight brings extensive financial services domain expertise in areas such as Direct Banking, Core Banking, Commercial Lending, Wealth Management, Treasury, Finance and Operations through four key service offerings: Business Architecture, Information Management, Risk & Compliance and Business Optimisation. “This acquisition reflects our ongoing growth strategy of reinforcing our strong business consulting services and support base to add industry-specific expertise and applications,” says Vaughan Stibbard, Managing Director, Tripoint. “Our acquisition of Platinum Insight will add to our 100-strong employee base an experienced group of professional consultants who have a proven track record in providing superior services and support to the financial services sector. We’ll now increase our focus on the financial services sector by offering a combined service of deep financial services business domain expertise coupled with Tripoint's already extensive experience in implementing strategic technology solutions.” Platinum Insight’s application capabilities include Oracle FLEXCUBE (Direct Banking and Core Banking), MISYS Banking Solutions, SAP Financials, SAP Banking Solutions and Fidelity Solutions (ACBS Commercial Lending). The company has built an impressive customer base that includes brand-name companies such as NAB, CBA, ANZ, Aozora Bank Japan, Fortis Bank, Lloyds, UBank and ComSuper. All the company’s consultants will transition immediately to Tripoint and form a newly established division called Tripoint Financial Services. The division will provide focused business and IT consultancy for the banking and finance industry, offering efficiency, accountability and best-of-breed business process implementation and support. “This acquisition is part of our strategy to accelerate business in Victoria as well as in key vertical industry markets, including higher education, telecommunications and mining. By launching a new division focused on financial services, this acquisition will add even greater momentum to our growing financial services business in Australia, enabling us to execute service offerings in both systems integration and managed services. We’ll also be able to extend managed services capability to Platinum Insight’s customers,” says Stibbard. Phil McFarlane, Managing Director of Platinum Insight, said, “The combination of Platinum Insight’s deep banking and financial services consulting experience when combined with Tripoint’s leading consulting and financial services system integration expertise will be a compelling offering to financial services firms as they set about creating market differentiation through IT innovation. We’ll now be able to offer the scope of services and support required to effectively service Australia’s financial services institutions resulting in long-term relationships.” Tripoint is unique in its ability to offer IT services across the full technology stack - from applications right through to hardware and network infrastructure. The company has long-standing relationships with a large number of diverse technology vendors including SAP, Oracle, Cisco, EMC, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Microsoft and VMware. The company has had a successful 13-year trading history and the addition of the new Platinum Insight business is expected to generate a very strong annuity stream to the already successful business and IT consultancy. Tripoint expects to achieve revenue growth of 20 percent per annum with continued expansion both in Australia and via the company’s south-east Asia operations based out of Singapore.
