Doosan selected Oracle because of Oracle’s mobile domain expertise and technology that showed it could exceed Doosan’s goals with a cloud based platform that Doosan could count on into the future.

The apps used on-device services, such as the camera, to create richer more accurate reporting, while leveraging Oracle MCS push notifications to streamline business processes in real-time.
The solution resulted in in a reduction of hours worked, better and faster approval coordination, and real-time responses between partners and managers.
