UK's Biggest Transport Group Drives into e-Foundation

UK's largest surface transportation company, First Group (LSE: FGP.L) has purchased a licence for Prophecy's e-Foundation Over Legacy product. The deal is estimated to be worth in excess of $500,000 (AUD) over 3 years.

First Group have recognised the benefits of using e-Foundation to extend the life of their existing system in order to dramatically increase its usability and functionality without high costs or business disruption.

First Group run a very large transport business in the UK and North America and enhancing their systems to lower their cost base was a vital decision for them to make. System continuity was also a key requirement in their upgrade plans, for any failures or system outages could have huge ramifications. Safety is a vital concern as well as the provision of a low cost and efficient service to their end consumers.

The cost savings gained from upgrading their systems with e-Foundation allow First Group to concentrate their resources for business expansion and lowering their cost base to improve margins.

Joe Slattery, Prophecy's Global Alliances Manager said "First Group have been looking forward to purchasing the e-Foundation Over Legacy System and utilising our expertise in software application and development to enhance their systems and enable them to provide a higher level of customer service all-round. They're excited about fulfilling their strategic goals in the systems and customer service area."

Prophecy's UK and Australian based staff will support First Group in the software implementation adding to their already considerable expertise in the transport and utilities arena.
