Redwood Shores, Calif. – September 22, 2011

News Facts

Inogen, a leading innovator and service provider for oxygen therapy, has selected Oracle CRM On Demand, Oracle Contact On Demand and the Oracle E-Business Suite to create an entirely new platform designed to scale to keep up with the company’s rapid growth, increase efficiency and further support its dedication to already superior customer service for patients.
Oracle CRM On Demand and the Oracle E-Business Suite replace Inogen’s previous, unlinked legacy systems that required special expertise to manage and adapt, and now provides a cohesive management of customer interactions that helps improve efficiency of staff and ultimately enables superior customer experiences.
Inogen’s Oracle deployment meets the company’s technology goals by increasing metrics and reporting so management can quickly monitor performance, as well as improve customer service efficiency through the seamless integration of Oracle CRM On Demand and Oracle Contact On Demand.
Previously Inogen’s phone system was not linked to their CRM system and customers waited while representatives searched for information. Oracle Contact On Demand now enables the immediate transfer of existing services and puts phone numbers at the representative’s fingertips with zero interruption, or waiting time for the customer, accomplishing a major technology milestone for the organization.
Also in line with the company’s larger technology goals, the deployment of Oracle CRM On Demand has increased employee adoption and reduced training time through its intuitive user interface.
Inogen currently uses the Oracle E-Business Suite to help manage their financials, manufacturing and order management processes.
