10th September 2012 - Concentric Solutions Delivers Oracle Accelerate Solution for Industrial Manufacturing based on Oracle Hyperion Financial Management
NEWS RELEASE: Stream-lined reporting and standardized project templates designed to reduce risk and enable faster time to value for midsized companies
London, September 05, 2012 Concentric Solutions, an Oracle Accelerate Solution Provider and a Platinum level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced its Oracle Accelerate Solution, “Fast Track Implementation Approach for Oracle Hyperion Financial Management in the Industrial Manufacturing Industry,” a rapid implementation approach for financial consolidation and reporting.
Concentric provides a stream-lined framework for the design and implementation of financial consolidation and reporting systems using Oracle technology. The combination of Concentric’s unrivalled financial close solution expertise, the governance structure provided by its Oracle Accelerate Solution, and customer understanding of specific business processes enables a fast track foundation for success.
Concentric’s Fast Track Approach for Oracle Hyperion Financial Management implementations use a prototyping approach to refine the system design and scope for the full solution, and provide several benefits to end customers:
- Time Saving - By using a prototyping approach to design, Concentric reduces the time required for documenting detailed specifications.
- Improved Quality - Project document templates with guided content enable consistent project quality.
- Cost Effective - Concentric’s engagement model minimizes implementation costs, whilst pre-built material can reduce project governance overhead.
- Reduced Risk - A key element of Concentric’s project governance methodology is the identification and management of critical issues and risks, reducing impact on project costs and timelines.
“Concentric’s “Fast Track Implementation Approach for Oracle Hyperion Financial Management in the Industrial Manufacturing Industry” enables manufacturing customers to accelerate the implementation of Oracle Hyperion Financial Management consolidation and reporting solution. Our proven framework of industry-recognised project approaches reduces implementation complexity and enables midsized companies to benefit from Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, uncovering crucial business insights often hidden in transactional and spreadsheet reporting systems.”
David Watson, Commercial Director, Concentric Solutions
Triton Group, Manufacturer of Subsea Remotely Operated Vehicles and a Concentric customer, successfully implemented Concentric’s Oracle Accelerate Solution. “With over 15 companies spread across the UK, US and Singapore, Oracle Hyperion Financial Management has helped Triton Group streamline the reporting process and ensure data integrity. Prior to the implementation, Triton Group would generate reports in about 16 working days. With the help of Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, this has been reduced to 10 days. In addition, before the implementation, requests for information were distributed via individual spreadsheets. Now we can easily run report or analyse the data in different ways using Oracle Hyperion Financial Management. When using just Excel spreadsheets it was quite easy to manually change numbers, so there was a lack of control. Now we are confident that when companies are loading trial balances there is complete integrity of information. This provides huge time savings and reduces auditing costs.”
Kerrie Murray, Commercial Director, Triton Group
