PickMe is a tech-based company that has brought ride hailing to your fingertips via an app that enables instant ride hailing. The company is equipped with a vast fleet of manned vehicles including and not limited to three-wheelers, mini cars, cars, vans and luxury sedans. PickMe has also launched its newest venture PickMe food, which enables the customer to order and acquire their meals in record time. The company also caters to your logistical needs with their fleet of trucks. 

Furthermore, all these solutions to your daily needs can be found on one app. PickMe currently services the mobility needs of passengers based in Colombo, Gampaha, Kegalle, Kurunegala, Matale, Galle, Kalutara and Kandy districts in addition to providing corporate travelling solutions to Sri Lanka’s leading businesses and organisations via its Business Portal. 

PickMe, Sri Lanka’s largest software developer related to mobility solutions and ZILLIONe, the leading provider of pioneering enterprise-wide business solutions have come together to work towards the successful implementation of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 solution.  Given PickMe’s rapid growth and projected future expansion including the handling of over half a million financial transactions per day, the company required a world-class ERP solution that would seamlessly integrate, simplify and streamline business operations.

Additional critical requirements included, the ability to dynamically scale up in order to cater to ever-increasing volumes of data generated by the company’s business operations, assistance in automation processes and the introduction of controls without the need to hire additional finance/back office staff.

PickMe was on the lookout for an IT partner to provide a tightly integrated ERP solution to enable the company to attain continued growth and in alignment with its strategic business objectives. Having set the standard for delivering innovative Microsoft solutions that meet the needs of customers, ZILLIONe was selected to deploy the powerful functionalities of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. 

Engaging a three-phased approach, the solution was deployed ensuring rapid progress. During phase one, PickMe’s financial data was successfully migrated into NAV together with new features, functionalities and modules enabling increased efficiency and streamlined processes. The existing finance team is now ideally equipped to handle the rising monthly business volumes. The deployment of phase two included migrating the company’s data to ensure management have easy access to highly-customised and detailed information for decision making purposes. While the final phase is ongoing, the implemented NAV solution has undoubtedly enhanced PickMe’s operational efficiency and productivity for all user levels across the organisation, addressing various business needs and strategic growth plans.

Elaborating on the success of the project, PickMe Chairman Ajit Gunewardene said, “With our business growing rapidly, the number of transactions has continued to increase significantly. In order to improve efficiency within the team we decided to bring in world-class technology to automate and streamline processes within the company. We opted to select Microsoft Dynamics NAV as we realised that NAV gave us a significant advantage that others could not match.”

“Furthermore ZILLIONe understood our business and looked at a long-term plan to migrate to NAV. We appreciate their professional attitude, flexible approach and long-term thinking in deploying a solution that met all our requirements. I am happy to note that we have successfully completed two phases of the project and have already commenced phase three,” he added.  Established in 1979, ZILLIONe is a leading enterprise technology solutions provider with strong in-house development capabilities and exceptional global partnerships with renowned technology brands. Over a span of nearly 40 years, ZILLIONe has served over 400+ clients from different industries across the world.

Familiar with its rapid implementation methodology, ZILLIONe has been helping customers in over 10 countries gain the benefits of customisable ERP software, with solutions that work, grows and evolves with the ever-changing business environment.

Commenting on the successful deployment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Enrico Lisk, General Manager, Banking and Enterprise Business Solutions, ZILLIONe said, “Our partnership with PickMe resulted in a world-class ERP solution addressing their various business needs and strategic growth plans. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 ensures security and its integration with Microsoft Office 365 offers flexible deployment options of cloud or on-premise installation.
