Specializing in electronic payment methods, benefits and card transactions, ValeShop provides complete solutions for many business sectors. Businesses that issue employee benefit cards rely on ValeShop’s services for transaction capture, payment processing, and development of exclusive products, such as private-label payment cards and specialized cards for food, fuel, and fleet management purposes, thus setting standards for the corporate benefits market.
Since its creation in 2008, ValeShop has concentrated its operations in the Brazilian Federal District and in the states of Minas Gerais and Goiás. The company is now expanding into new markets in Brazil, and it projects a 60% increase in the number of cards—which currently total 200,000. To support expansion, ValeShop strengthened its IT environment with upgrades to Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition and Oracle Application Server, Enterprise Edition, achieving the scalability, stability, and performance needed to meet increased product demand while maintaining a high level of customer service.
“We prepared for ValeShop’s expansion by upgrading our Oracle solutions, as our database environment was failing to keep up with our growth.” said Helton Moreira, systems director, ValeShop. “With Oracle, we have managed to cover several IT requirements with stable and scalable products, and gained the ability to easily find highly-qualified professionals who demonstrate knowledge and experience in working with Oracle products and solutions.”
With Oracle, ValeShop’s separate IT components interact with each other perfectly to create an integrated, seamless, and comprehensive IT environment that supports the scalability needed to facilitate growth for the company’s business. ValeShop’s processing back office was completely developed with Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports, and the data environment now operates on Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition, replicated through Oracle Active Data Guard. The online customer interface is built on Oracle Internet Application Server, Enterprise Edition, with Oracle Linux ensuring optimum performance at reduced costs for all products and applications.
