Genesis Energy buys CA Clarity solution

News Release

Genesis Energy buys CA Clarity for project and portfolio management

Wellington, 18 September 2007 – Genesis Energy, New Zealand’s largest energy retailer and a significant energy generator, has bought the CA Clarity project and portfolio management solution.

Genesis Energy programme manager Murray Collins says CA Clarity will initially be used for information technology projects and is then intended to be rolled out into the company’s retail operations.

Genesis Energy manages hundreds of projects each year ranging in cost from tens of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars.

Mr Collins says CA Clarity will automate Genesis Energy’s Programme Office and should streamline manual processes that currently take up to five days a month down to around one day a month.

“CA Clarity will be used to manage projects, resources and capacity on a day to day basis. We will also use it to look for risks that might be missed by manual processes.”

CA Clarity’s project management capabilities include automated workflow, a document management system for approvals, and resource management. Its portfolio management capability analyses projects to ensure alignment with business directions.

Genesis Energy works closely with a number of external suppliers and CA Clarity will enable those suppliers to manage projects and allocate resources so these are electronically consolidated.

Mr Collins said the benefits of implementing CA Clarity will include savings on projects which are rejected because they do not align with business strategy and a reduction in manual data input for reports because real time data entry by suppliers means you can see the status of the project on the fly.
