Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud is fueling growth for one of Singapore's largest online supermarkets, RedMart.
Launched in 2011, this start-up is using the e-commerce platform to buy groceries and household products. The e-tailer has chosen to implement Oracle's ERP to improve system performance and flexibility for further business expansion.
"We are glad to have achieved the success we have today, but we are still growing and constantly exploring how to further improve our internal operations," said Jim Boland, head of Finance, RedMart. "Technology is at the heart of our business, and we need to constantly strengthen it in order to grow, and we're glad that Oracle is along that journey with us."
High transaction volume
Prior to Oracle, RedMart was using a legacy ERP system that could not scale to the high transaction volume in line with its growth. The system could not produce useful reports, and was not flexible enough for the company's fast-changing business priorities.
Oracle ERP Cloud equips RedMart with business insights within the transactional areas. This reduces overhead costs and allows different levels of management to effectively make timely decisions.
Oracle ERP Cloud also allows RedMart to collaborate with suppliers over a common platform.
"Oracle ERP Cloud meets RedMart's needs for financials, supplier management and procurement all in one platform, easily accessible across all levels and departments," said Adrian Johnston, Vice President, Oracle Cloud Applications, Asia Pacific. "This empowers employee engagement across the business and aids the management team with decision-making."
