IFC Group & Oracle MCS Make Life Easy For Sales Reps

Last week we showed you how Manchester Airports Group is using Oracle MCS to better engage with, and promote to, its customers.  Today, we have another example of how a company with a large, mobile user base has adopted Oracle MCS to provide relevant, real-time, information and services to its target audience: its own sales force!

IFC Group (Industrial Farmaceutica Cantabria) is one of Spain's leading skin care product developers and distributors.  With a large, constantly traveling, sales force, and with a small IT department, IFC historically has asked its sales reps to enter sales & procurement data into the company's systems after each pharmacy pickup, which was something that reps could not do until they returned to their offices.  Even then, the entry process took hours!  This method was extremely inefficient and reduced time in the field. 

When sales teams asked for a more flexible mobile solution that would increase efficiency and decrease frustration, IFC didn't have the time or the IT resources to build an entirely new system.  However, the company realized that it needed to create an attractive solution where reps could enter data in real-time from remote locations, as well as a solution that gave reps access to on-demand CRM and BI tools that were critical in the sales process.  A current Oracle customer, IFC added Oracle MCS to its product suite, and was able to use and convert its existing APIs, without changing any code, into mobile APIs.  What did that mean?  Through Oracle MCS, IFC was able to deliver exactly what its sales teams had asked for, and made their work much easier, without replacing the company's entire IT infrastructure!  To learn exactly how IFC accomplished this, read the full article HERE.

Mobilizing Oracle Forms - the Art of the Possible!

A couple of weeks ago I posted on LinkedIn about A New Interest in Oracle Forms which talked about the possibilities of building new mobile use cases on top of existing Oracle Forms business logic exposed through Oracle Mobile Cloud Serivce.

This really piqued interest because whilst Oracle Forms underpins so many business today, its not something that is viewed as modern or "dynamic". But the possibility to expose existing Forms logic out to new mobile clients really opens up limitless possibilities.

Because of the great response and to further explain the possibilities and the technology behind mobilizing Oracle Forms, I developed 4 videos on Forms Mobilization. which are published on our official Oracle Mobile Platform YouTube channel.

The videos I created are:

This should give you a better insight on the possibilities of mobilizing Oracle Forms, the architecture of the solution using Oracle MCS and the Auraplayer connector, how you expose Forms logic as web services without changing a single line of code, and a demo of the solution in action.

You can also check out our up and coming webinar on March 31st at 10:30 AM Pacific/1:30 PM Eastern

Co-hosted by Mia Urman, CEO Auraplayer and Suhas Uliyar, VP of Mobile Product Strategy, Oracle.

The technology is here, you just have to imagine the possibilities!

To address these challenges, check out this webinar which introduces new mobile solutions for E-Business Suite and JD Edwards.
