Lean Manufacturing in the Cloud Success Story 

John Klinke
Director, Oracle Industry Strategy Group

Oracle has seen thousands of manufacturers successfully move their enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain management (SCM) applications to the cloud. The cloud gives you the combined benefit of being able to modernize your applications while also taking advantage of the security, scalability, and agility of cloud computing.

Mecalac is a recent example. Mecalac is a construction equipment manufacturer based in France with operations in Europe and the US.  They specialize in construction equipment such as site dumpers, excavators and loaders. 

After an acquisition in the UK, Mecalac realized they needed to update multiple systems in the UK facility to synchronize those operations with the rest of the company. They then wanted to standardize their business systems across all their facilities to enable greater flexibility and scalability across their operations as they moved toward more lean manufacturing.  They turned to Oracle Platinum Partner Inspirage for implementation expertise in deploying multiple mission-critical solutions, including Oracle ERP and SCM modules, in the Oracle Cloud. 

The results were impressive, and we invite you to learn more about this lean manufacturing success story by joining us for a webcast on Tuesday, February 25 at 10am ET:  Enabling the Lean Enterprise with Oracle Manufacturing Cloud - A Case Study.  You’ll hear about what Mecalac learned in their move to the cloud, how long it took them to migrate, and the improvements they’ve achieved.  

If you are considering a move to the cloud for your ERP or SCM applications, you should definitely plan to attend this live webcast event and discover how Mecalac was able to make it work.
