Antwerp-based company is bringing its Finance and Procurement processes into Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications.

Vilvoorde/Utrecht—November 11, 2020

Katoen Natie, founded in Antwerp in 1854 and worldwide provider of logistics services will manage and integrate its financial and purchasing processes from Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The strategic choice for Oracle's SaaS solution will help the logistics service provider to optimize the business processes of all entities and activities. The solution will ensure greater efficiency and cost reduction, thanks to the rapid and phased introduction of innovative technologies.

Seamless organization

Katoen Natie supplies smart logistics and engineering solutions, tailored to the specific situation of each customer. Katoen Natie is currently located in more than 30 countries, spread across Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia, and is constantly expanding towards where sustainable opportunities lie. To ensure the consistent delivery of quality services, the Antwerp-based company needed to be more responsive to the rapidly changing logistics industry. In times in which logistics services are becoming more complex and the pressure on the supply chain is only increasing, Katoen Natie does not only see challenges, but also opportunities. By introducing a flexible and innovative ERP solution, management gains an integral insight into the business processes and all activities of the organization. Oracle Cloud ERP provides an intuitive, user-friendly, high-performance, secure and localized solution, which is available 24/7 worldwide to all employees.

Innovation from the Cloud

Katoen Natie's application landscape currently consists of on-premise ERP applications from Microsoft and SAP. Katoen Natie opted to replace its legacy applications with a flexible SaaS solution that can be configured quickly and easily with the ever-changing requirements and wishes. Katoen Natie's choice ultimately fell on Oracle Cloud ERP.

“As Katoen Natie, we are on the way to becoming one of the most innovative logistics service providers worldwide. We choose to organize the services differently. Moving our business processes to the cloud is in line with our ambition and we are proud that we have been able to take this step together with Oracle”, says Sophie Van Kerckhove, CEO IT at Katoen Natie.

Resilience and flexibility

With Oracle Cloud ERP, Katoen Natie can quickly adapt business models and processes, reduce costs, improve forecasts and seamlessly integrate AI to enhance business processes. Thanks to the cloud, employees will now have faster access to more efficient processes. This allows more time and energy to be spent on what really matters, namely providing the right logistics services and putting customers first.

“Oracle has evolved over the years from a product organization as a software supplier to a real service organization. This means that we are very close to our customers and know their exact needs. Our complete Oracle Cloud ERP guarantees the best performing cloud, with an optimal ROI. We are pleased that with Katoen Natie we can add another great name to our Cloud portfolio and that we can help them achieve their digital ambitions”, concludes Edith Bevers, VP ERPM BeNeLux at Oracle.
