Philippine-based Udenna Corporation’s food group subsidiary, Eight-8-Ate has chosen Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain & Manufacturing (SCM) to help streamline its financial processes and improve supply chain operations as it expands its operations rapidly across the country.
Established in 2018 under Udenna Corporation, Eight-8-Ate is the master franchisee of 51 Wendy’s restaurants and over 50 branches of Conti’s Bakeshop in the Philippines. Despite the pandemic, Eight-8-Ate sees potential for growth and has diversified into food delivery, drive-throughs and opened even more physical outlets.
Eight-8-Ate selected Oracle Cloud ERP and Oracle Cloud SCM, part of Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications Suite, to automate and modernize its back-office operations, and help support its growth plans.
“Even before COVID-19, we wanted to modernize our back-office operations to gain a competitive edge,” said Joey Garcia, President and CEO, Eight-8-Ate. “We selected Oracle Fusion Applications because it is a complete suite of integrated SaaS applications that can enable us to streamline finance and supply chain processes to meet our aggressive expansion plans.”
With Oracle Cloud ERP, Eight-8-Ate can increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve controls. Eight-8-Ate will use Oracle Cloud SCM to help ensure the distribution of food from its commissary to Wendy’s and Conti’s Bakeshop is well-integrated and built to outpace change.
“Food and beverage businesses, like Eight-8-Ate, need to be agile and quickly adapt to changing consumer needs,” said Mina Lim, Managing Director, Oracle Philippines. “With Oracle Fusion Applications, Eight-8-Ate can take advantage of the latest innovations in the cloud to help its management team make timely and informed decisions while speeding up its product go-to-market – a critical must have for success in a highly competitive market.”
To be implemented by Evolutionary System Singapore Pte Ltd, a member of Oracle Partner Network, Eight-8-Ate is expected to go live on Oracle Cloud ERP and Oracle Cloud SCM by May 2022.
Eight-8-Ate, established in 2018, carries the leading food retail brands Conti’s Bakeshop and Wendy’s in PH; and is on an aggressive expansion, setting up more branches and acquiring additional brands.
