Lower Lakes Testimonial

“When I joined Lower Lakes, we had discussions internally what were the outstanding problems that they were incurring", Mr. Glenn Myers, Director, Engineering & Technical Services at Lower Lakes says.
“One of the key problems was that during our Winter Work Lay up period, during which we had a budget of several million dollars for maintenance and general repairs, we had extreme difficulty managing the budget. In 2007, we exceeded our budget by approximately 10 %. Since we configured the TA budgeting component in conjunction with our TA PMS and Purchasing, we now
