Since its founding, the charitable lotteries of Novamedia have raised over 12,5 billion euros for more than 1,000 charities and social projects around the world. As Novamedia continues to expand, it needed an up to date, modern, secure, and scalable cloud-based platform that could connect business processes to improve productivity and collaboration, enhance organizational visibility, and support its growing workforce.

Novamedia will deploy Oracle Fusion Applications for finance, supply chain management, and human resources. The integrated cloud platform will enable the social enterprise to align its HR processes and improve and faster develop the employee and user experience, also towards digital native audience such as GenZ. In doing so, Novamedia expects to innovate its supply chain management and procurement functions and enhance and automate financial processes to increase efficiency and insights. The rollout will also help Novamedia to further reduce its IT carbon footprint through Oracle’s sustainable cloud operations and applications.

"At Novamedia we believe the world benefits from strong social organisations, and in our organisation we will never rest on our laurels. As a team we strive for the best and aim to harmonize our finance and HR processes," says David van Leijenhorst, Finance Director Novamedia/Postcode Lottery Group. "We have partnered with Oracle to implement this way of working in the cloud and have faster and more insight over these processes throughout the Lotteries. With Oracle Cloud Applications, we have an integrated application platform that will help us become more flexible and adaptable in an increasingly complex and competitive environment, and ultimately help us deliver on our mission to create a better world."

"In an increasingly uncertain world, organizations must be able to remain agile and adaptable in continually changing circumstances if they are to survive and thrive, and social enterprises are no exception," said Cormac Watters, executive vice president, Applications, Oracle EMEA.

"Novamedia has a culture of progressiveness and innovation that has turned it into one of the frontrunners of the charity sector in Europe and globally. With Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications, it now has an integrated platform to support both its current and future needs."
