Pace Suburban Bus is the premier suburban transit provider, quickly moving people to work and school, safely and efficiently. The backbone of Chicago’s suburbs, Pace serves tens of thousands of daily riders with fixed bus routes, vanpools, and Dial-a-Ride programs. Pace covers 3,500 square miles and is one of the largest bus services in North America.
Pace Suburban Bus chose Oracle E-Business Suite because it met the organization’s need for a fully-integrated application suite and had the key modules Pace needed to support its business processes. It selected Oracle Exadata Database Machine to reduce its server environment complexity and boost critical system performance.
Pace first deployed Oracle Financials and Oracle Procurement in 2008. In 2009, it implemented Oracle Order Management, Oracle iStore, and Oracle Grants Accounting. The organization upgraded to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 in March 2010. Pace deployed Oracle Exadata Database Machine in December 2012 and is in the process of migrating critical databases to the new system. Pace is currently in the final process of implementing Oracle Enterprise Asset Management.
Booz Allen Hamilton, Rolta International, and Global PTM have worked closely with Pace Suburban Bus on its Oracle E-Business Suite implementation and upgrade.
