Ricardo Eletro Reduces Operational Cost by 40m Brazilian Reais per Month with Oracle Retail

Oracle Database News - Fri, 01/13/2017 - 18:00
Press Release Ricardo Eletro Reduces Operational Cost by 40m Brazilian Reais per Month with Oracle Retail Brazilian Consumer Electronics Retailer Streamlines Operations with Oracle Retail Merchandising and Fiscal Management Solutions

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 13, 2017

Today Oracle announced that Ricardo Eletro, the third largest retailer of consumer electronics in Brazil, has deployed Oracle Retail Merchandise Operations Management and Oracle Retail Fiscal Management to enable converged commerce, empower associates and increase operational efficiency. Ricardo Eletro faced the challenge of integrating more than 900 stores and 12 distribution centers in the midst of company transformation. 

The partnership between Oracle Retail and Ricardo Electro began eight years ago. In January 2016, following several mergers and the costly support of disparate systems and varying IT infrastructure maturity levels, the decision was to unify Ricardo Eletro under one brand, and a unified Oracle IT infrastructure. This collaboration empowered the Ricardo Eletro commercial department to optimize the market structure to facilitate open to buy, centralize management, and streamline pricing, while enabling adherance to federal regulations. 

"We needed to establish a foundation for the new organization. We evaluated the systems and existing investment of all our companies. Oracle emerged as the clear choice to establish a foundation for growth for Ricardo Eletro," said Edson Tavares, CIO of Ricardo Eletro.

“The ‘Unification’ project transformed the company with a simplified infrastructure, a unified workforce and a better appreciation of customers while reducing operation costs by 40M Brazilian Reais per month,” Said Vinicius Hamzi, Planning and Management Vice president of Ricardo Eletro. “Our team empowered the holding and operations teams with a culture of transparency and efficiency. We launched a Zero-Based Budget (ZBB) and we adopted the best practices and retail rich functionality of Oracle Retail and Oracle E-Business Suite.”

Ricardo Eletro selected Oracle Retail implementation partner BRX Retail to support this project. BRX Retail provided local resources with product experience, local understanding of Brazilian tax regulation and the implementation knowledge to deliver and respond quickly.

“With the implementation of Oracle, Ricardo Eletro has proven that there is power in simplicity. Ricardo Electro can now anticipate the needs of the stores and the online channels to better serve the consumers with a simplified an inspiring experience,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “Oracle has dedicated resources to localize the requirements for the Brazil market. Oracle Retail is thrilled to partner with Ricardo Eletro to extend its foundation for growth.”

Hamleys Deploys Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service in 8 Months

Oracle Database News - Thu, 01/12/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Hamleys Deploys Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service in 8 Months International Specialty Retailer Empowers Store Associates with In-Store Innovation

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 12, 2017

Today Oracle announced leading International Toy Retailer Hamleys has deployed Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service across its UK, Republic of Ireland and Finnish store estate. Hamleys is a respected international brand operating in 23 markets across EMEA, Asia and the Americas. Hamleys differentiates itself through its in-store experience for children and families with a product assortment that includes key brands as well as quality private/own brand products.

Hamleys partnered with MICROS prior to the acquisition by Oracle. Hamleys is one of the first customers to successfully and quickly transition from an older version of MICROS RJ to Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service, a more global and strategic solution that supports the organization’s global needs.

“Oracle were identified as an opportunity for Hamleys to introduce a new epos solution which gives us many enhancements to improve customer offering whilst also offering improved trading terms as well as being compliant to the current version of PCI,” said David Oakley, Head of Information Technology, Hamleys. “Oracle delivered on time to support our critical Christmas trading season.”

Hamleys deployed the new Point-of-Service solution in less than 8 months on-time and within budget with Oracle Retail Consulting. The first store was live in six months followed by a rollout across the UK and Ireland. By late October, Hamleys was able to upgrade the 50 tills at the Regent Street London England flagship store location.

 “Oracle is dedicated to providing customers with a path to the latest and most appropriate version of mission-critical solutions like Point-of-Service. Our converged commerce solutions unify experiences, deliver common execution across touch points and provide consistent views of customer, order and inventory,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “We are empowering store associates to work the way they live, and use mobile devices to better participate in empowered commerce-retailing.”

Oracle Database News - Thu, 01/12/2017 - 14:00
Press Release Oracle Cloud Applications Drive Carbon’s Quest to Lead in 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Carbon to streamline business processes across organizational development, manufacturing, finance, and services

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 12, 2017

Carbon (Carbon, Inc.), whose CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) technology allows commercial customers to 3D print manufacturing grade components, has selected Oracle Cloud Applications to modernize its systems, transform business processes, and help ensure a secure, scalable, and connected cloud suite for the next phase of the company’s growth. Oracle’s Cloud Applications will enable Carbon to maintain a competitive edge in the dynamic additive manufacturing market by helping to increase business agility, lower costs, and reduce IT complexity.

Working at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science to deliver on the promise of 3D printing, Carbon sought a cloud solution that could be configured to its business needs and could keep pace with its anticipated rapid growth both domestically and globally. Carbon selected Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud, Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud, Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud, and Oracle Service Cloud over SAP because of the strength of Oracle’s integrated breadth and depth of offerings, embedded analytics, and the modern, easy-to-use interface of its applications.

“As we evaluated our business needs, we knew we needed a future-proof cloud-based solution that could scale as we grow. Not only did we need a sales-ready product, but we also needed a sales-ready business organization,” said Chris Hutton, director of business operations at Carbon. “Oracle’s Cloud Applications help ensure our business processes are seamless so we can focus on delivering the best experience to every customer.”

Carbon’s deployment of Oracle’s comprehensive and modern suite of Cloud Applications will streamline business processes, and optimize collaboration and efficiencies in the following ways:

  • Oracle HCM Cloud will allow Carbon to leverage talent and workforce management offerings to provide an engaging and collaborative HR experience, and enhance how they find and retain quality employees
  • Oracle SCM Cloud will help transform supply chain operations to optimize cost, service levels, and the supply chain network
    • Oracle Manufacturing Cloud will streamline manufacturing processes through visualizations and real-time views into shop floor operations and work orders, while controlling costs
  • Oracle ERP Cloud will allow finance to spend more time on higher-value activities, such as analyzing results and advising the business on strategy
  • Oracle Service Cloud will help differentiate Carbon’s brand with intuitive, engaging experiences through the cloud for customers and employees alike

“Carbon has a vision to enable every member of their company to have a comprehensive 360-degree view of each customer. We are pleased to work with them to ensure our Cloud Applications deliver this visibility to support their ongoing success,” said Gretchen Alarcon, group vice president of product strategy at Oracle. “Oracle’s enterprise-grade Cloud Applications work together seamlessly to empower everyone from a relationship manager to Carbon’s CEO to see how all parts of the business are performing.”

Oracle delivers the industry’s broadest suite of enterprise-grade Cloud services, including Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Data as a Service (DaaS).

Press Release Mexican Retailer Almacenes García Deploys Best in Class Oracle Retail Planning Solutions Fast Fashion Retailer Increases Inventory Turnover and Localizes Assortment

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 11, 2017

Today, Oracle announced that fashion retailer Almacenes García has deployed Oracle Retail Planning and Optimization solutions to support growth and transformation. Almacenes García is a 70-year-old retailer that has shifted from a traditional apparel retailer to a fast fashion retailer. Today Garcia serves insatiable fashion-oriented millennial shoppers.

The demands of fast fashion retailing required Almacenes García to consider finding a solution provider who can help facilitate new production introduction, assortment planning and lifecycle pricing. The fashion retailer selected Oracle Retail to replace an outdated planning solution, to reduce the total cost of ownership through automation, adopt best practices and create a unified technology infrastructure.

“Garcia drives loyalty and gains market share through a single price strategy, the right mix of private label brands, fast inventory turnover and a compelling assortment specific to store type. With the Oracle Retail implementation, we transformed disparate and disconnected functions into a centralized and streamlined process with a collaborative and holistic planning approach,” said Andrei Savtchenko, Director IT, Almacenes García.

Almacenes Garcia selected Retail Consult to deploy Oracle Merchandise Financial Planning, Oracle Retail Assortment Planning, Oracle Retail Clearance Optimization and Oracle Retail Item Planning to support over 150 store locations across Mexico in just under 16 months.

“The Oracle Retail solutions include a rich tapestry of retail best practices, process workflows and architecture recommendations called the Retail Reference Library. This library gives you the confidence to deploy a vanilla implementation, and rapidly realize benefits.” said Andrei Savtchenko, Director IT, Almacenes García.

“At Oracle Retail, we are honored to serve over 5,000 retailers around the world. The power of this community is reflected in the development of our solutions,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “As an early adopter of Oracle Retail Assortment Planning and Clearance Optimization, Almacenes García’s experience will help to enhance future releases and improve the solutions for future customers.”

Oracle Retail is also bridging the productivity gaps between online and traditional point of sale functionality, through mobile experiences that inspire store associates to engage consumers away from the register.

  • Converged Commerce: Also now available, the Oracle Retail Extension Module for Oracle Commerce allows retailers to deliver a common brand experience across all touch points by using Oracle Cloud Services to manage orders, optimize fulfillment decisions, and give everyone the same single view of customers across your enterprise. Oracle’s Xstore POS also enables retailers to help customers pick up, complete, or change purchases from any location by integrating with Oracle Retail Customer Engagement Software, Oracle Retail Order Broker and Oracle Retail Order Management System.
  • Better Together: The mobile Oracle Retail Xstore Point of Service is also optimized to provide traditional web functionality like in-depth product details, ratings and reviews, and task management so associates are able to engage consumers away from the register with deep insights operating on the Oracle MICROS Family Workstation.
  • Mobility Everywhere: With this release, Oracle Retail Xstore now offers four different ways for store employees to engage – using a traditional fixed device, dockable tablets, tablets, and mobile.  All use the same POS platform and provide full check out, CRM visibility, cross- and up-sell functionality, fulfillment, search, price check and loyalty program integration from any device.

Red Wing Shoe Company Deploys Oracle to Fuel Growth Among Diverse Consumer and Industrial Markets

Oracle Database News - Fri, 01/06/2017 - 17:00
Press Release Red Wing Shoe Company Deploys Oracle to Fuel Growth Among Diverse Consumer and Industrial Markets Growing Retailer Delivers Leading Work Boots and Popular Styles via 170+ Mobile Truck-Based Stores and 450+ Traditional Stores

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jan 6, 2017

Today Oracle announced that Red Wing Shoe Company, a made in America brand selling to customers worldwide, has implemented Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service to support its rapid growth among new and traditional customer markets.  Red Wing Shoes, which continues to launch new product lines and expand to new markets worldwide, plans to increase its store count over a five-year period by 25% - 30%.

Red Wing Shoes’ styles appeal to diverse consumer groups – from construction workers to hipsters – and getting the experience right for each buyer persona requires thoughtful execution of brand interactions.  The Oracle Retail solution enables Red Wing Shoes’ to empower store associates and elevate customer service by allowing store associates to work via mobile, tablet and stationary workstation devices.

“Oracle ensures our customer experience and retail operations are world class, and scales with us as fast as we are growing,” said Marc Kermisch, VP and CIO at Red Wing Shoes.  “The Oracle Retail Xstore solution delivers rich functionality that reflects Oracle’s deep retail focus; it works across mobile platforms in a manner that is intuitive to our employees.”

Among commercial customers, Red Wing Shoes has long been ahead of its peers in extending access and customer service beyond traditional brick-and-mortar stores.  The company’s fleet of 170+ trucks provides easier access to the right footwear by bringing fully stocked stores to work sites, where employees get help with sizing and order items for delivery at home or work.  Today, the Red Wing Shoe Company trucks are equipped with Oracle Retail Xstore to ensure accurate inventory planning and to provide immediate access to sizes and models and order fulfillment when customers at commercial sites need items shipped.

Red Wing Shoes chose Oracle Retail Xstore to replace a home-grown, highly customized point-of-sale solution that simply could not scale to meet evolving business requirements. Red Wing Shoes selected BTM Global to implement the Oracle solution.

“Oracle empowers retailers to deliver a flexible, rich customer experience and to optimize retail operations serving markets from multiple store formats including mobile stores,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “We are honored to be part of the success story at Red Wing Shoe Company, and we look forward to the company’s growth as they bring their unique brand to more consumers worldwide.”
