Upgrade to Integrated and Flexible Platform Enables Building Materials Manufacturer to Optimize Financial Operations and Supply Chain Processes
Atlas Roofing Corp., a manufacturer of residential and commercial building materials, has standardized on Oracle’s PeopleSoft Financials and Supply Chain Management (FSCM) 9.1.
With 16 manufacturing locations in North America, Atlas Roofing needed a scalable and flexible system that could support its continued growth by standardizing financial reporting systems across business units and optimizing supply chain processes. By upgrading its existing PeopleSoft applications to PeopleSoft FSCM 9.1, Atlas Roofing can leverage a complete, robust solution for financials and supply chain management to increase employee productivity, accelerate business processes and reduce IT costs. With Oracle’s PeopleSoft Financial Management 9.1, Atlas Roofing can leverage best practices to enhance financial processes, improve period close, reduce liabilities and further automate compliance and financial control.
Oracle’s PeopleSoft General Ledger and Oracle’s PeopleSoft Payables enable Atlas Roofing to automate financial and legal reporting to meet regulatory requirements, streamline financial processing and increase visibility into business-critical information. In addition, the comprehensive and flexible supply chain management capabilities delivered by Oracle’s PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management 9.1 will facilitate Atlas’ ability to drive efficiencies and cost savings across its entire supply chain. Leveraging PeopleSoft SCM applications including Oracle’s PeopleSoft Order Management and Oracle’s PeopleSoft Inventory and Fulfillment Management, Atlas Roofing can improve inventory accuracy and customer service levels by synchronizing orders with product availability in real time.
Atlas Roofing has been a PeopleSoft customer since 1999. It upgraded to the latest version of the ERP system from Oracle’s PeopleSoft 8.4. The upgrade was completed in March 2011.
“To help support our continued growth, we need an integrated and flexible platform that can enhance business operations by streamlining financial and supply chain processes,” said Lorraine McLaughlin, IT Director, Atlas Roofing. “With Oracle’s PeopleSoft FSCM 9.1, we now have a platform that provides us with the financial management and supply chain capabilities needed to operate more efficiently and effectively. In particular, the new features will help us to quickly and easily increase employee productivity, accelerate business processes and reduce IT costs.”
