Why Oracle

Majestic Auto chose Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 because of its positive experience with Oracle Database for the last 14 years. The company also wanted to partner with a reputable vendor to ensure the reliability of its ERP system and minimize risks for critical manufacturing operations. 

“We considered Microsoft, Ramco, and SAP but decided that Oracle was most suited for our specific business requirements. Also, it made sense to partner with a vendor that we trusted and that ensured seamless integration with our existing Oracle Database,” said Gobind Ahuja, chief general manager, IT, Majestic Auto Ltd. 

Implementation Process

Majestic Auto implemented Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 at its Ludhiana manufacturing plants first and extended its usage to Greater Noida. Majestic Auto also engaged My Oracle Support to provide support and resolve product-related issues for both implementations and to eliminate disruption to business operations. 

“Thanks to My Oracle Support and Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1’s high system availability, we had zero system downtime, and we were enabled to generate management reports faster to support our business growth,” said Mahesh Munjal, managing director, Majestic Auto Ltd.

Partner

Majestic Auto engaged Oracle partner Sonata Information Technology Ltd. for customization and user training for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1.

“With Sonata Information Technology’s expertise and experience in ERP systems, we are getting the most out of our Oracle, world-class ERP platform,” Ahuja said.
