Results
  • Implemented Oracle E-Business Suite Managed Cloud Services to improve system scalability, as the company continues to grow and expand through acquisitions, and to boost availability to 99.8%, which is critical for a 24/7 global manufacturing operation
  • Upgraded to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 to take advantage of new functionality in credit management, trade management, and accounts receivables, as well as to identify  opportunities to reduce customizations and related costs
