Poltrona Frau Group, an Italian company founded in 2005, is a global leader in the high-end furniture sector. The organization includes three leading brands—Poltrona Frau, Cassina, and Cappellini—each with a clear identity and unique style, ranging from classical, to modern and innovative. Poltrona Frau Group’s high-quality products are available in major markets worldwide through 20 subsidiaries, two main production plants in Italy, 80 single-brand and multiple-brand stores (21 of which Poltrana Frau operates directly), and more than 1,000 multiple-brand retailers around the world. The company strives to pursue excellence and product quality through continuous research and innovation in all phases of the production process, consistently designing products that exude Italian tradition and style.
Poltrona Frau Group has relied on Oracle Hyperion applications since 2006 to consolidate its financial statements and management reporting. The organization recognized that Hyperion’s rich features, robustness, and flexibility were unmatched in the marketplace, and this made it an easy decision to select Oracle Hyperion products for its internal reporting.
“We are experiencing many distinct benefits with the Oracle Hyperion solution. We rely on its robust analysis platform, easy-to-use Excel interface, simple integration capabilities and the web access it provides to users,” said Melissa Oltolini, who is in charge of Poltrona Frau Group’s management consolidations and reporting.
Poltrona Frau Group worked with Oracle Platinum Partner Reply S.p.A. to implement the solution on time and on budget. The Group worked closely with Reply to ensure the implementation met its needs. Reply also developed an English-language DVD aimed at foreign company representatives to ensure proper execution of the training phase.
