For more than 30 years, AIReS has provided corporate relocation solutions for domestic and international clients. The company’s focus on the relocating families' needs, coupled with its technology expertise and wide range of service options—including home search, household goods shipping, immigration support, language training, and school placement—make it the preferred relocation partner for more than 250 companies worldwide.
AIReS needed a Web-based solution that would enable rapid development with an interactive user interface, data visualization components, and ability to integrate with legacy applications.
“Oracle Application Development Framework fit our roadmap for modernizing our applications, as it had superior functionality, a rich user interface, a large user community, a framework built on industry standards, and committed vendor support. We looked at six or seven solutions, but Oracle best suited our needs,” said Jeba Jothimoni, Applications Architect, AIReS.
The company upgraded to Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition 11g, and Oracle WebLogic Server, and implemented Oracle Application Development Framework to support the ASSIST system development. While testing Oracle Application Development Framework, the AIReS implementation team was impressed with the framework’s out of the box design patterns, reusability features, and functionality to provide a rich, interactive user interface.
AIReS completed the ASSIST system within six months, using the Oracle platform to enable integration across multiple systems. The company rolled out ASSIST to 300 users in six offices in the United States, Hong Kong, London, and Ireland. Oracle Application Development Framework facilitated a rapid-prototyping project methodology that complimented the business process improvements and solution socialization. AIReS leveraged business change champions in all locations that educated and motivated all staff in advance of the roll-out, resulting in a very successful deployment with immediate and measurable process improvement efficiencies.
“It is hard to contain our excitement. With the help of Oracle, our pioneering ASSIST system takes the user experience to another level. We are streamlining our workflows and business processes. We are improving employee productivity. We are giving our users tools to make better decisions”, said Anand Diraviyam, Senior Project Manager, AIReS.
