Showing massive success with its Integrated Project Management Control System (iPMCS) in the United States, and now managing more than US $50-billion in capital projects, TPG America has joined forces with TPG Africa to promote TPG iPMCS throughout Africa.
TPG America recently hosted a conference at Microsoft, in conjunction with TPG Africa, to launch iPMCS in South Africa and to also promote knowledge around Project Management Processes.
iPMCS was built to manage the financials, schedules and project controls for some of the world’s largest capital programmes. As an enterprise-wide system with a single point of entry, iPMCS can maximise project control and visibility and integrates core internal systems such as SAP, Oracle and Primavera.
TPG Africa’s CEO Pieter Meyer says this announcement forms part of TPG America’s global expansion strategy and compliments TPG Africa’s recent introduction of a range of freshly designed specialised Enterprise PPPM solutions and services.
“We plan to expand TPG America’s success to South Africa where mining and construction industries can capitalise on these system offerings. We are excited by the prospects of iPMCS after several successful meetings with leading mining companies in South Africa. TPG America will certainly be returning to meet with several other large SA companies,” he explains.
TPG Africa has also developed a unique and practical project, programme and project portfolio maturity and organisational readiness assessment tool. These services and tools are based on OPM3 and are integrated with Strategic Throughput Principles and Project Portfolio Management best practices.
It assists and advises organisations on the findings of these assessments and helps determine what PPPM tools will suit them best. As part of its practical assessment services, TPG Africa also performs project audits on mega, capital, large and medium size projects, using its own developed tools and highly qualified assessors.
The company has had enormous success in assisting mining, construction and engineering companies by establishing integrated project management control offices (IPMCOs), to support their large and capital intensive projects in order to control spend more effectively.
“As a leading PPPM solutions provider, our goal is to have a global approach to TPG products and solutions.
“Our service offering has grown significantly and we have distinguished ourselves as specialists in the market, largely due to our ability to source subject matter experts, general skills and support staff in the mining, engineering, construction, financial and insurance sectors,” he concludes.
