ATLANTA, Aug. 10, 2005 (PRNewswire) -- Empower Solutions, a subsidiary of Intelligroup Inc., announced its partnership with the Louisville Water Co. for a PeopleSoft ERP -- enterprise resource planning -- implementation that began in April 2005.

Louisville Water Company (LWC) provides water to more than 800,000 people in Greater Louisville and parts of Oldham and Bullitt counties, delivering on average 127 million gallons of water per day. In addition to retail customers, LWC wholesales water to utilities in Shelby, Oldham, Bullitt, Spencer, and Nelson counties.

Empower Solutions' partnership with LWC includes a Human Capitol Management (HCM) 8.9 implementation comprised of human resources (including health and safety, and recruit workforce), benefits administration, and payroll modules.

LWC currently outsources its payroll check production, however with the PeopleSoft HCM 8.9 implementation, Empower Solutions will help them maximize the return on their software investment by bringing this process in-house, enabling greater control over and streamlining of payroll data and processes.

With a go-live set for January 2006, Empower Solutions will also implement Employee Self Service functionality for LWC, including eProfile, eCompensation, eBenefits, and ePay which will allow their nearly 500 employees to more easily access and update their information and will allow LWC HR, Benefits, and Payroll staff to maximize on their important core productivity and increase their focus on employee customer service.

"Replacing our existing Human Resources and Payroll systems provides significant opportunities for productivity and service enhancements. Empower Solutions and PeopleSoft were evaluated as the best solution to facilitate those changes," said Ellen Mackin, Co-Project Manager for Louisville Water Company. "Empower Solutions' history of successful implementations at other utilities and governmental agencies along with their ability to articulate how our needs could be met made them an attractive partner for LWC. Over the last several months, Empowers' knowledgeable staff has continuously demonstrated their commitment to a successful implementation at LWC."
