Freight Provider Transforms Its Entire Business System

The Challenge

A leading full-service freight transportation provider was struggling with underperforming legacy business systems. Services such as shipment tracking, booking, payments and vendor management were compromised by slow on-premises applications. The company wanted a faster, more efficient and cost-effective way to improve how its systems work and to integrate all its business functions.

Our Approach

Change management was a key success factor for this multi-pillar project, which touched nearly every facet of the business. To prepare the company for cloud adoption Cognizant developed both short- and long-term roadmaps to implement Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud in a staggered manner.

The implementation began with Oracle ERP Cloud deployment, covering accounts payables (AP), general ledger, fixed assets and cash management. Oracle HCM Cloud deployment followed, covering core HR, payroll and benefits. In addition, legacy systems were integrated into the platform to support supplier, invoice and fixed asset creation.

Oracle Cloud Integrates Systems and Simplifies Processes

With a new cloud-based platform to meet all its business needs, the company has improved its processes, enhanced customer service, reduced maintenance costs, streamlined access to data and built a foundation for future growth.
