Oasis Investment Company—the holding company of the Al Shirawi Group—is one of the largest conglomerates for the manufacturing, engineering, trading, marketing, distribution, contracting, and service industries in the Arabian Gulf. With headquarters in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Oasis Investment Company includes 35 business entities, many ranking among the Middle East’s largest companies.
The company’s products and services include steel and metal fabrication, engineering services, contracting for air-conditioning and refrigeration, water-proofing products and services, interior decoration for commercial complexes and showrooms, printing, plastics manufacturing, technical services, as well as manufacturing electronics and computers, trucks and heavy engineering products, and food products.
After assessing Oracle Fusion Applications, Oasis Investment Company determined them to be the only natural fit for its 35 business units and existing technology footprint. Oracle also offered a complete technology stack and a strong track record of integrity and successful deployments in the region.
“Oracle has a great reputation, good solutions, and an excellent image, regionally,” said Madhukar Nath Chaturvedi, IT director, Oasis Investment Company. “Oracle created a personal project management team that checked in with us twice weekly and updated us hourly during critical deployments. Oracle’s support, project management, and technical know-how are second to none.”
Oasis Investment Company mandated a fixed-term deployment and budget. The company began deployment in late February 2012 and completed the initiative in mid-July 2012, on time and on budget. The company trained 55 users on Oracle Fusion Financials for four days, and then it used knowledge transfer to train all other finance managers and administrators, streamlining deployment.
Infosys, an Oracle Diamond Partner, spearheaded and managed the Oracle Fusion Application deployment process. Oasis Investment Company selected Infosys for its unrivalled Oracle Fusion Application specialization and implementation experience in the region.
“Infosys is very knowledgeable about Oracle’s robust solutions. The team demonstrated great expertise in integrating our existing technology footprint with Oracle Fusion Financials, the only financial management solution capable of seamlessly improving our efficiency, decision-making, and ability to scale and innovate,” Chaturvedi said. “The performance of Oracle’s technology has been excellent. Our budgets and schedules are fixed; we have an excellent working relationship, service and support with Infosys, and we are very happy with our partner choice.”
