Corsair Components, Inc. Improves Global Business Operations with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1
Midsize Manufacturer Leverages Scalable Solution to Meet Current Needs and Support Planned Future Growth
Redwood Shores, Calif. – Feb. 13, 2012
Corsair Components, Inc. (Corsair), a designer and worldwide supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming industry, has upgraded to the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 to help streamline and improve global operations and support its plans for future growth.
With strong growth in its major markets, Corsair needed a modern, cost-effective, scalable and reliable global business platform that that would enable it to standardize operations and lower total cost of ownership.
By upgrading to the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1, Corsair has been able to take advantage of the powerful capabilities, flexibility and scalability of the ERP suite to significantly reduce month-end reporting and meet the increasing volume of customer orders.
In addition, Corsair has been able to simplify and efficiently automate fulfillment processes by leveraging the Oracle Order Management module within the latest version of the Oracle E-Business Suite.
Completed on time in approximately three and a half months and under budget, the Corsair IT team of three people managed the upgrade to the latest release of the Oracle E-Business Suite internally and leveraged Oracle Support to help mitigate risks.
Corsair’s original Oracle E-Business Suite 11.5.10 implementation was completed in 2007 by DAZ Systems, Inc. using Oracle Business Accelerators. Oracle Business Accelerators are rapid implementation tools, templates and industry- and geography-specific leading practice process flows to help dramatically reduce implementation time, complexity, cost and risk.
In addition to Oracle Database 11g and Oracle User Productivity Kit, Corsair is using the following Oracle E-Business Suite modules: Oracle Financials, Oracle General Ledger, Oracle Accounts Payable, Oracle Accounts Receivable, Oracle Fixed Assets, Oracle Cash Management, Oracle Bills of Material, Oracle Work in Process, Oracle Procurement, Oracle Order Management, Oracle Warehouse Mobile Applications, Oracle Advanced Pricing, Oracle Manufacturing, Oracle Inventory, Oracle Engineering, and Oracle Approvals Management.
“As a midsize, rapidly-growing business, we needed a modern business platform that could support our current demands while also being able to cost-effectively scale to meet our plans for future growth,” said Ramesh Potta, IT Manager, Corsair Components, Inc. “With the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1, we now have a flexible platform that offers a broad range of new functionality. From a business perspective, it has added a lot of value as it has enabled us to reduce costs and improve customer service by streamlining and simplifying existing processes.”
