Situation

A manufacturer and supplier of premium alumina-based products recently divested from its parent company and was given a very short timeframe to stand up its own IT systems and migrate from the parent company’s SAP configuration.

The client sought a rapid implementation of a cloud Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) solution with minimal investment in IT infrastructure to meet its needs in managing Financials, Procurement, Inventory, and Maintenance.

The client has undergone a complete transformation of its business processes with AST’s RAPID deployment of Oracle ERP Cloud. This powerful solution, coupled with AST’s expert implementation team enabled a smooth transition to ERP and SCM Cloud in record time.”
