Nairobi, Kenya: Postal Corporation of Kenya (PCK) has contracted two communication firms to implement an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System at a cost of Sh260 million.

Chief Executive Enock Kinara said TechnoBrain headquartered in Kenya and Reason Solution Consortium from India, have been engaged to help implement strategies meant to enhance efficiency. 

Dr Kinara said the system is part of the corporation’s efforts to automate front and back office functions in a bid to ramp up efficiency in “end-to-end business operations”.

He said the ERP system would lead to generation of higher revenues and reduced cost of business processes. Kinara said the corporation is keen to hit a cumulative target of Sh20 billion in three years.

“We want to gradually ratchet up our revenues from Sh3.57 billion (2012/2013) to Sh4.5 billion (2013/2014), from Sh4.5 billion to Sh6.5 billion (2014/2015) and from Sh6.5 billion to Sh9 billion (2015/2016) in years one, two and three respectively,” he said.

Kinara said there is need to realign the corporation through ICT.
