Redwood Shores, Calif. – July 31, 2012


News Facts

Elizabeth Arden, Inc. has deployed Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) in the Oracle Cloud to help the company gain global visibility into its international human resources information, centralize that information, automate HR processes and provide international reporting compliance.
Elizabeth Arden is a global beauty products company with a range of prestige fragrance, skincare and cosmetics brands. The company sells fragrance, skin care and color cosmetic products in the United States primarily to department stores and mass retailers, as well as internationally in prestige department stores, perfumeries, boutiques and travel retail locations. Its international headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland.
Oracle Fusion HCM in the Oracle Cloud will help Elizabeth Arden centralize all historical and actual employee information for international employees, which was previously in disparate HR systems, and ensure that HR processes and records remain consistent.
Elizabeth Arden originally selected Oracle Fusion HCM in the Oracle Cloud after an extensive review process of SaaS-based HCM solutions. Key factors in the decision included Oracle Fusion HCM’s global presence, its ability to grow to fit future HR functional needs at the company, the ease of installation without customization, and Oracle’s reputation as a leader in HCM solutions.
Elizabeth Arden has deployed Oracle Fusion HCM to its HR staff in Switzerland and the United Kingdom (UK), including Global Human Resources, Benefits, Payroll Interface, Workforce Compensation, Performance Management, Goal Management, Talent Review and Oracle Fusion Transactional Business Intelligence. The company intends to bring Oracle Fusion HCM to all employees in the UK and Switzerland, then to continue to roll out the HCM suite to the rest of its international employees over the course of this year.
By deploying Oracle Fusion HCM in the Oracle Cloud, Elizabeth Arden was able to take advantage of the standard setup and configuration, and will benefit from easy self-service, including the ability to order, configure, extend, and monitor its HCM applications.
Deloitte*, a Diamond level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, managed the deployment of Oracle Fusion HCM for Elizabeth Arden out of its UK office.
