Oracle enabled us to build a tightly integrated cloud ERP system and online ordering portal that links to our manufacturing floor via mobile devices—helping us to innovate now and into the future.
Larger Than Life is a mid-size out-of-home digital printing company—producing large banners, billboards, vehicle wraps, bus and taxi advertisements, and more. The company manages 10 presses that run six days a week and 20 hours a day and produces up to 500,000 square feet of product daily.
Larger Than Life—a firm that operates in a fragmented industry heavily populated by small shops that run high-tech equipment with low-tech, manual workflow processes—sought to break the mold by completely transforming the way it does business. Today, with Oracle Cloud and Lift Software, Larger Than Life is more agile and has built a tightly integrated ERP system and online ordering portal that does everything from order entry and capture to fulfillment as well as shipping and invoice generation—ultimately streamlining internal processes and improving the customer experience.
One of the biggest reasons we selected Oracle was because we knew it would enable us to access everything we needed from any device. Oracle Cloud offered us a great avenue to have that worldwide mobility. We got what we wanted and more.
Larger Than Life engaged Life Software to design and deploy its ERP system in 12 months. The company began its implementation process in March 2015, and stood up its Oracle environment in less than a month using Oracle’s Accelerated Buying Experience to quickly and easily procure its cloud services. The company then spent 12 months developing the ERP environment. Larger Than Life went live with the system in April 2016. The system is currently available to a third of the company’s customer base and will be fully operational by year’s end.
“I partnered with Larger Than Life to help meet its need of automating manufacturing and integrating online ordering into the process. As a result, and with Oracle Cloud as the foundation, Lift Software was born,” said Paul Davidson, cofounder, Lift Software.
