TACOMA, WA, Jan. 3, 2005 (PRNewswire) -- TUI Consulting, a utilities and public sector SAP implementation firm, announced the start of WaterOne's SAP implementation. TUI and WaterOne, a water district in Johnson County, Wash., will be working to replace WaterOne's legacy systems encompassing its core financial and administrative systems.

WaterOne's general manager, Michael Armstrong summarized, "TUI presented a clear, concise plan to undertake this major project with minimum disruption to the organization during and after the implementation."
