Unicoop Firenze is the largest cooperative company in Italy, with more than 1 million members. The company manages a sales network of 120 stores in Tuscany and Rome, operating under the Coop and Doc brands. Unicoop Firenze’s mission is to provide its members and consumers with high quality goods and services at the best market price by promoting its cooperative values of mutuality, solidarity, and socio-economic development.
To enhance real-time decision-making, company executives wanted to ensure that they had timely and accessible cash flow and sales data from Unicoop Firenze’s stores. The organization looked to Oracle and Oracle Partner Bridge Consulting Srl for a solution.
By deploying Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Unicoop has significantly reduced the time it takes executives to pull financial data from its 120 stores and compile reports, enabling faster and more informed decisions. In addition, the new environment enables Unicoop Firenze to increase the number of simultaneous jobs it runs during night-batch processing, from 5 to 30, while reducing overall IT costs.
