Fox River Water Reclamation District Optimizes Back-Office Processes; Reduces Purchase Order Creation Time from 2 Days to 10 Minutes with Oracle Cloud

Fox River Water Reclamation District provides wastewater services in Kane County and Cook County, Illinois, and has three regional wastewater treatment plants. Prior to its Oracle Cloud implementation, Fox River’s back office systems were antiquated, lacked integration, and were unable to scale. Since deploying Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud and Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud—including Oracle Procurement Cloud, Oracle Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service, and Oracle Project Management Cloud Service— Fox River has easier access to its financial data—giving the organization deeper insights and improving decision making.
