Chicago's Pace Suburban Bus Improves Service and Expects Savings of $1M with Oracle

Chicago-based Pace Suburban Bus is one of the largest bus services in North America, covering 3,500 square miles, and serving tens of thousands of daily riders with fixed bus routes, vanpools, and Dial-a-Ride programs. Pace selected Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 to maintain all of Pace Suburban Bus's financial, grants accounting and asset management records, resulting in the elimination of data silos, reduction of data redundancy and enhanced information sharing across the bus system's departments.

With Oracle Enterprise Asset Management, Pace Suburban Bus is able to maintain optimum inventory and aid in effective preventive fleet maintenance for approximately 5,000 vehicles. Pace also won, along with partner Viziya Corporation, the 2014 Oracle Excellence Award for Sustainability Innovation, which recognizes the innovative use of Oracle technology to address global sustainability business challenges.

Unique by Design: The Noble Energy Story

The Oracle Oil & Gas team recently released this video featuring Noble Energy of Houston, Texas. Noble Energy was the 2013 Winner of the Oracle Oil & Gas Industry Excellence Award. This transformational video details Noble Energy's use of Oracle products, which includes Oracle ALM and includes some of the following quotes:

On Sustainability and Maintenance: Oracle enables Noble Energy's "Integrated Development Plan. This is something that can create tremendous value. It really enables us to see cost efficiencies both on the drilling completion and facilities side and on the operating side too. What it does for our community and areas is that it reduces our footprint, reduces emissions, it takes trucks off the road. IDP is a master plan that enables sustainable, responsible growth with less equipment and fewer facilities."
On Project Management and BI: Oracle "makes these sorts of projects possible, to do them on-time, on-budget, or ahead of time or under budget. And without that analytical capability to bring it all together and manage it and redirect and shift, the probability of over-runs and delays and not meeting your objectives, in my experience, goes up.

Forward this video to your customer and prospects!

Profit Magazine: Schneider Transforms Their Business with Oracle Transportation Management

Schneider is featured as the cover story of the current issue of Profit Magazine in an article titled "Vehicle for Change:  Data Drives Schneider's Strategy for Employee and Operational Excellence."  The article discusses Quest, a five year transformational initiative, which truly changed every aspect of their business.  The central tenet of Quest was simple:  give drivers, customers, and business partners convenient access to the information and services they need while improving back-office processes to drive operational efficiency and profitability.   Oracle Transportation Management was an integral part of that transformation. Judy Lemke, executive vice president and CIO at Schneider states “We have not only realized the goals we set out to achieve but have surpassed the benefits we anticipated going in. The foundation laid over those five years of transformation has now become an outstanding platform for current operations and a springboard to even greater possibilities in the future.” Read the full article here.
