Process Modernization for a logistics client with Oracle Cloud ERP

The client is one of the top logistics and freight-forwarding providers in the United States that provides integrated logistics services across a variety of industries, such as fast-moving consumer products, retail, health sciences, and technology. The logistics client desired to update their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, which would encompass both the back office and the core activities.

Key Challenges

  • The logistics client’s legacy ERP system lacked procurement functionality; as a result, employees conducted all procurement-related tasks manually using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets ​
  • In addition to subpar financial systems and delayed month-end closes, the logistics client lacked the capacity to effectively manage its suppliers ​
  • The logistics client sought to upgrade/transition to a new technological platform that would transform its back-office systems by leveraging the cloud to increase productivity and minimize lost revenue ​

Solution

  • Sparity spearheaded the transition, utilizing Oracle Cloud for modules like financials, procurement, and supplier management, as well as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) implementation to facilitate business process reengineering
  • Based on best global practices, Sparity’s development team used a combination of agile and waterfall practices to migrate all legacy systems and business processes in phases ​
  • Automated procurement and supplier management functions, enabling the logistics client to analyze expenditures ​
  • Through training and awareness workshops, our team worked closely with the logistics client to assist staff in adjusting to the new working style ​

Benefits

  • Automation of manual processes has resulted in a reduction in revenue loss and an improvement in management
  • Developed a centralized record-keeping system that can be audited
  • Increased agility by eliminating the need to keep ERP software on-premises
  • Logistics client reduced migration time and cost by more than 50%
  • Improved implementation timeline by 150%
