As a result of acquisition and merger activity Travelport needed to consolidate on a single set of Financial and Procurement applications. Travelport chose Oracle Financials (GL, AP, PO, AR) to run their back office financial and procurement processes. To implement and begin using the Oracle applications, Travelport needed to consolidate all of their financials to a single set of applications, integrate them with existing in house applications, and convert data from previously used back office system while not interrupting the day to day operations.
Travelport selected UBS to assist them in the North American implementation of Oracle Financials (GL, AP, PO, AR). Our team participated early on in the requirements gathering helping Travelport in the planning processes which included scope definition, activity duration estimating, and risk analysis. The execution of the project included the technical implementation of Oracle Financials in a Unix/Oracle environment, the configuration, integration development, interface development, data modeling, conversion from Geac mainframe and other applications, and reporting (financial reporting in oracle applications). Our consultants implemented R-I-C-E (customization tool for Oracle) for all the customizations within the Oracle applications to meet the diverse and complex business needs of the Travelport organization.
- The Oracle Financials project was completed on time and under budget
- Travelport realized an actual project cost savings of 38%, by utilizing UBS Oracle consultants
