Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Expands Oracle Content Management Deployment

Oracle Imaging and Process Management, a Component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Streamlines Invoice and Expense Processing, Strengthens Integration With Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

News Facts

  • To simplify invoice and expense processing for more than 130 campuses across North America, Europe and the Middle East, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the world's largest, fully accredited university specializing in aviation and aerospace, has replaced a competitive product from 170 Systems with Oracle Imaging and Process Management.
  • By switching to Oracle Imaging and Process Management, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University consolidated multiple steps in its accounts payable process and eliminated several customizations that restricted the flexibility of the previous platform.
  • The implementation also tightened integration with the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12, enabling users to easily manage expenses, invoices and discrepancy reports within familiar Oracle E-Business Suite interfaces.
  • With Oracle Imaging and Process Management, the university is also able to reduce its total cost of ownership as it can maintain the Oracle E-Business Suite integration during upgrades without expensive and time-consuming hard coding and custom processes previously required with the 170 Systems product.
  • The new deployment within its accounts payable department expands Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's existing Oracle Content Management implementation, which has already delivered a significant return on investment, helping reduce the university's annual paper usage from 140 tons to 70 tons and cut its yearly greenhouse emissions from 355,950 pounds to 177,975 pounds.
  • Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University worked with Oracle Consulting to deploy Oracle Imaging and Process Management and integrate it with the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12, achieving full production in less than 6 months.
