The two firms will offer a service, branded PrimeSource, to help smaller companies use major enterprise resource planning systems without the usual hassles and risks. Companies can choose from a range of software from leading providers, including SAP, JD Edwards, Oracle and PeopleSoft, to be set up, run and maintained on their behalf. Although most clients will want their systems run off-site, the service can be run on-site. As a managed service, PrimeSource aims to make implementation and operating costs predictable. Twenty-four-hour support will be available which, through economies of scale, should work out cheaper for clients than hiring their own technicians, according to KPMG. To provide 'future-proofing', KPMG consultants will be checking that each client's system stays in line with the direction of their business. The service is already available. It is one of several new initiatives aimed at tempting small and medium-sized companies into the ERP fold as the large corporation market becomes saturated. As well as Oracle Business OnLine - a tie-up with BT that offers Oracle applications via a hosted service - BT has BusinessManager, an online rental service that hosts packaged applications at its own data centre allowing customers to dial in remotely from their PCs.
