Patrick Migrates to Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle EPM Cloud, and Oracle HCM Cloud in 5 months and cuts total cost of wwnership by over US$6.8 million.
Patrick is an Australian container terminal operator, handling over 3 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEU) per year. Its terminal network is spread across four strategic locations nationwide, including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Fremantle.
Patrick was using PeopleSoft applications, including financials, purchasing, payroll, and time and labor, from its former parent company, Asciano. After the corporate restructuring, Patrick needed to exit its legacy platform within 12-months to avoid significant usage fees. To support the timeframe, Patrick adopted Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud, Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud, and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud to ensure a seamless migration.
By adopting Oracle as a single, complete cloud for financials, planning, and HR functions, we saved millions of dollars in upgrade costs—and also expedited maintenance tasks by 400%. Oracle Advanced Customer Services also helped us to ensure system stability and maximize the value of our Oracle investment.
“We considered Workday and SAP but decided that Oracle was the best fit because of its comprehensive offerings for finance and HR modules—and its competitive price point. The single vendor solution also helped us ensure a smooth transition and meet the required timeline.”

With support from Oracle Advanced Customer Services, Patrick replaced its legacy PeopleSoft application with Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle EPM Cloud, and Oracle HCM Cloud. Oracle Advanced Customer Services also assisted Patrick to develop the majority of the 20 integration interfaces from the internal systems to Oracle Cloud within a 3-month period. Patrick successfully went live with the new platform two months after the integration.
“Our Oracle sales representative was professional and understood our business requirements, allowing us to quickly reach the buying decision with Oracle,” said Carlos Tiongson, Enterprise Systems Manager, Patrick. “The entire migration process took only five months. Oracle Cloud, Oracle Mission Critical Support, and Oracle Advanced Customer Services just checked all the boxes we needed it to.”
