Thomas Lucas is an advocate for proactive support tools that can benefit Sherwin-Williams. He has sought out Oracle tools and encouraged his team to explore the feasibility of deployment. Sherwin-Williams currently has numerous proactive tools in place, including Database and EBS Healthchecks, Flashback, Period End Close Advisor, MOS Alerts, and also uses My Oracle Support communities. Lucas’s directive to get the members of his support organization through the MOS accreditation process is well underway, with one-third having completed MOS Level 1 Accreditation. Sherwin-Williams enjoys 100 percent Platinum adoption for all eligible systems, which has resulted in a more stable and higher performing systems environment.
