Solar production and manufacturing is complicated. Solar companies face competing challenges in bringing solar panels to market: increased speed-to-market and complex design processes involving dispersed, global teams. Oracle Product Lifecycle Management helps you meet these challenges. Plan and manage product investments with a centralized repository of complete product and project information, as well as tools—including Oracle's AutoVue Enterprise Visualization—that enable secure, global collaboration. The result: you bring profitable Solar products to market on time and on budget.
DELIVER A CONSISTANT CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE ACROSS ALL CHANNELS AND ORDER PHASES
As markets, supply chains—and competition—grow increasingly global, you need extremely flexible manufacturing and supply chain planning systems. For example, you want to minimize changeovers due to non-dedicated equipment while leveraging duplicate systems resulting from consolidation. Oracle Supply Chain Planning helps you improve demand predictability, minimize inventory costs, and develop a single, holistic supply chain plan. And Oracle Manufacturing helps you move from push- to pull-based production with complete mixed-mode capabilities, including tools to manage outsourced, in-house, and hybrid models.
ESTABLISH A PROFITABLE SERVICE AND REPAIR BUSINESS
In durable goods manufacturing, reputation is everything. When a customer has an issue, you need to respond quickly and effectively. Oracle Service enables seamless, cost-efficient multi-channel support with a single, robust platform for customer, product, and contract information. It provides tools to manage field service, depot repair, inventory and spares, call centers, and even has options for customer self-service support over the internet. Just as important, it enables you to ensure profitability with tools to prevent contract leakage and promote proactive contract renewals.
