The Business Challenges

The company’s logistics service is facing several challenges. We identified the following roadblocks: –

  • They wanted to upgrade their existing transportation solution, which lacked integration.
  • They were looking for a logistics solution that can easily get synced with their existing business processes.
  • The organization was looking to integrate a transportation solution with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) for Order Management, Purchasing, and Accounts Payable.

Our Solution

  • We started by undertaking a gap analysis of the system.
  • Since the core of the problem lied in logistics, we proposed the implementation of the Oracle Transportation Management (OTM) solution. To optimize their transportation planning, our solution streamlined their freight payment and audit processes and strengthened their transportation.
  • We also Integrated the OTM functionalities with their Order Management, Purchasing, and Accounts Payable Modules. Our Vehicle Management Solution included assignment, track & trace, and preventive maintenance.

Key Results

  • We ensured better integration of the existing solution with EBS.
  • Our solution implementation opens a new path to on-time & budgeted solution delivery.
  • The existing solution became automated, which improved the speed and accuracy of deliveries.
