Lorge Press Office

A contract to supply and implement a SAP Business One integrated business software solution in Mozambique for the Maputo headquarters of the international Group 4 Securicor security systems and guarding services provider, has been awarded to business and financial software reseller and solutions provider Lorge.

Lorge manager Eugene Olivier said the contract involves a complete revamp of the Group 4 Securicor Mozambique`s financial software systems, currently DOS-based, with a SAP Business One solution that will track marketing/sales leads and automatically convert them into contracts and orders when a sale is confirmed.

“The solution caters for both major sections of the business — the once-off purchase and installation of security/alarm systems and the supply of guarding services on a renewable 12-month contract invoiced every month. ”

Information from Group 4 Securicor`s activities in other centres in Mozambique is sent to Maputo on paper for recapture and input into the software system. A future second phase will look at placing the countrywide operations online using a Citrix thin client infrastructure.

Group 4 Securicor Mozambique employs some 1 600 people and operates nationally, serving public authorities, SME and large businesses, homeowners, international organisations and Embassies. The company offers cash transportation, manned security — including mobile patrols, stationary guards, alarm response services and physical protection — security alarm installation and monitoring and security survey services.

The system installation and implementation is scheduled to be completed in December.
