BKS is a wholly-owned South African multi-disciplinary engineering and management company with 25 offices throughout Africa and a staff of 550 employees.
"We are a growing enterprise with offices dispersed throughout Southern, Eastern and North Africa," said BKS Group CEO, Danai Magugumela. "We have found managing an expanding multi-currency business an increasing challenge which our existing Management Information System could not effectively meet. We are looking forward to the benefits of BST Enterprise's sophisticated multi-company, multi-currency capabilities. We were looking for something that would bring better business visibility to our division directors, project directors and project managers and tie our offices together in a common way."
"It was a long road through our evaluation process, and I am glad that we have appointed BST Global," said Ken Joiner, MD of BKS' international operations and project manager for the BST implementation. "We spent many months carefully evaluating all our alternatives and we found that BST Enterprise best matched our requirements."
BST Global serves project driven organizations needing to integrate project management, client relationship management, billing, accounting and employee time and expense tracking as well as gain valuable enterprise insight through analysis capabilities. The company's flagship product is BST Enterprise, a portal-based solution that delivers relevant, real-time, focused information to the user. BST Enterprise includes enterprise resource planning, client relationship management, enterprise project management, and business intelligence. Leveraging the industry's only 100% Microsoft .NET solution, BST Enterprise is robust and scalable for larger organizations - end results for users include top line growth, improved cash flow and increased profitability.
"BST Enterprise will help BKS Group gain major efficiencies and enhance project management capabilities across its multi-company, multi-currency operation," said Eduardo Niebles, BST Global director of international business development. "BKS will find that the full integration of all of their business processes will provide a seamless collaboration and clear operational visibility that directly affects their bottom line. We are glad for the opportunity to work with the BKS Group and look forward to a long and successful partnership."
