Oracle® E-Business Suite Release 12 Delivers Strategic Value to Meru Networks
Wireless Infrastructure Leader Implements Latest Version to Standardize Global Business Processes and Support Rapid Growth
Redwood Shores, CA – October 1, 2008
Meru Networks, a developer and marketer of wireless infrastructure solutions, has successfully implemented the Oracle® E-Business Suite Release 12 to standardize on best business practices in order to gain increased auditability, real-time visibility and transparency into its business operations, Oracle today announced.
Implemented in 120 days, the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 replaces multiple legacy systems to provide Meru Networks with integrated ERP capabilities that can support the company’s growth.
Today, Meru Networks has achieved many operational efficiencies and increased visibility into the entire requisition and approval process. With auditability of operations on a daily basis, Meru Networks is able to close its financial books efficiently and have an infrastructure in place to execute future regulatory compliance initiatives.
The initial deployment, focused on automating the entire order-to-cash cycle and procure to pay cycle, yielded improved processes for order management, accounting, shipping and purchasing across the entire company.
The implementation is running on Meru Network’s own wireless LAN infrastructure leveraging Oracle Database 10g, and utilizes the following modules: Oracle Order Management, Oracle Purchasing, Oracle iProcurement, Oracle Manufacturing and Oracle Business Intelligence for Supply Chain and Order Management.
Led by Navisite, a Certified Advantage Partner in the Oracle PartnerNetwork, Meru Networks’ implementation of the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 was completed on-time with very little customization, resulting in a scalable foundation for automating and integrating additional business functions.
“We needed an integrated ERP application infrastructure that would scale with our business growth and support our overall systems strategy,” said Meru Networks, Head of Information Technology, Sreeni Garlapati. “Implementing the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 has enabled Meru to leverage standard business processes and we have been able to consolidate our disparate systems onto one platform. Oracle’s high-tech industry expertise is impressive and we were able to implement the system rapidly. We are also running Oracle Applications on our own Meru Wireless Infrastructure.”
“We evaluated different ERP packages and talked to many companies during our investigation; the majority of companies like Meru were either using Oracle or moving to Oracle,” said Meru Networks’ Keith Matasci VP of Operations. “We wanted a complete package, no customizations required, and we had a very aggressive window for the implementation. The Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 allowed us to start with a tier 1 product that will support Meru as we grow, but not be over burdening starting out. Oracle meets all our requirements.”
