Participate in Oracle Customer Programs
Ingersoll Rand is a global, diversified industrial firm providing products, services, and solutions that enhance the quality of air and comfort in homes, buildings, and transport and that protect food and perishables, secure homes and commercial properties, and increase industrial productivity and efficiency.
Given the breadth of its product offerings and its global reach, the company has a complex network of manufacturing and distribution operations. To increase efficiency while ensuring that it continues to deliver the superior service its customers expect, Ingersoll Rand implemented Oracle Transportation Management to coordinate its outbound shipping across various lines of business and facilities.
Even while the application was implemented currently at eight sites of the company’s more than 70 locations, it already exceeded expectations for improved productivity and cost savings. With Oracle Transportation Management, users can view shipping plans across lines of business and facilities, enabling them to adjust shipments to increase efficiency, such as making multiple stops within one shipment. The application has already contributed to more than 2 million dollars in savings and increased on-time delivery rates.
While Oracle is a strategic partner for Ingersoll Rand, the company evaluated other vendors’ solutions when launching its transportation management initiative. It ultimately selected Oracle Transportation Management for its robust functionality, flexibility, and integration with Oracle E-Business Suite, which the IT team and lines of business stakeholders felt would add value to the company’s customer base.
