SAINT LOUIS (Sept. 12, 2019) – Perficient, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading digital transformation consulting firm serving Global 2000® and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced that it will demonstrate its success in modernizing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems using Oracle Cloud at OpenWorld, held Sept. 16-19, in San Francisco.
In order to remain agile and maintain visibility into business systems, enterprises must standardize their processes and establish governance and accountancy controls. By leveraging Oracle’s cloud capabilities for application and database development, Perficient helps clients institute efficiencies across the organization while empowering them to regain accessibility and authority of their information.
In the customer case study session, “Winning with Cloud ERP Solutions and Lessons Learned,” Perficient and its client Stallion Oilfield Services, a leading service provider to the oil and gas industries, will discuss the successful unification of fragmented systems using Oracle ERP Cloud. The session will address how an integrated multi-pillar Oracle ERP Cloud solution accelerated Stallion’s speed of digital transformation and enabled them to achieve growth goals, meet business requirements, and reduce their technology infrastructure costs.
“We experienced rapid growth in recent years, and our legacy ERP platform was outdated and could not keep up with our demand,” said Jason Lu, Stallion VP and CIO. “We had multiple single points of failure where we were dependent more on people rather than systems. During this period of growth, we had cobbled together makeshift solutions to satisfy specific business requirements, but they failed to integrate into a well-rounded enterprise architecture application.”
Stallion partnered with Perficient to implement a solution that consolidated more than 40 systems into a two-system architecture. Using the out-of-the-box modern best practices included with Oracle’s ERP Cloud offering, Stallion is now outfitted with a scalable and highly configurable end-to-end business solution that can support rapid development iterations and perpetually evolving demands.
“This Oracle ERP Cloud solution empowers Stallion to get the most out of its current business practices and provides the foundation to scale for the future,” said Steven Bricker, Perficient strategic account director. “The application has improved overall efficiencies by streamlining procurement processes, in addition to broadening Stallion’s visibility into their inventory, financial reporting, and human resources procedures.”
