Lawson Software improves business Opts of Fort Bend County
Apr '08
When Fort Bend County decided it needed to replace its aging, disparate business software systems, the county turned to Lawson Software. Twelve months later, the Texas county is fully operational with the Lawson S3 Human Capital Management, Supply Chain Management and Enterprise Financial Management suites.

These enterprise software solutions are now helping to streamline business processes and improve revenue-producing activities within the county.

In addition to the core Lawson application suites, Fort Bend County also selected Lawson Budgeting & Planning, Business Intelligence, Strategic Sourcing, Grants Management, Billing & Revenue Management, Project Accounting and employee self-service offerings.

The county engaged Lawson Professional Services to provide implementation services for the system rollout, which incorporated the workflow capabilities of Lawson ProcessFlow Integrator.

With ProcessFlow Integrator, Fort Bend County was able to streamline and automate workflows that were previously manual or paper-based. By completing such a broad enterprise software implementation, Fort Bend County has established a foundation to help it meet its current and anticipated administrative needs.

Located southeast of Houston, Fort Bend County employs approximately 2,000 people to serve its nearly 500,000 residents. Key cities within the county include Sugar Land, Missouri City, Stafford, Rosenberg and a portion of Houston.

The county previously relied on disparate business systems, which lacked the flexibility and scalability to cost-effectively support the county's evolving operations. Fort Bend sought a consolidated business system that would support long-term growth at a low total cost of ownership while providing an intuitive user interface that is simple for employees to learn and use.
