Home Builder "Surat Basin Homes" Selects Oracle’s JD Edwards and Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM to Transform Business
Oracle has won a competitive bid to provide Surat Basin Homes (SBH) with Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOneincluding JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Financial Management, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne CRM, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Human Capital Management (including HR Management, Payroll and eRecruit) JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Supply Chain Management (Inventory, Procurement and Requirements Planning).
SBH has chosen Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) to assist SBH in making better informed portfolio management decisions, evaluating the risks and rewards associated with the many building projects the company is undertaking, as well as determine whether there are sufficient company resources with the right skills to accomplish the work.
SBH is the leading provider of quality built homes in the Surat Basin. The business is a rapidly expanding business with aggressive growth plans over the next two years. As a home builder in one of the highest demand growth areas in Australia, the company is looking to extend its annual house building capability from 100 in 2012 to 200 in 2013.
SBH, currently located in Chinchilla, is due to expand both within Chinchilla and the Brisbane CBD to assist with attracting the highest quality staff required to service its ever growing national customer base. A fully integrated ERP solution was selected to help this expansion and limit logistical IT issues between separate offices to help ensure smooth information management transfer between multiple sites.
Due to this rapid growth of the company and the management’s commitment to gain Quality Assurance Accreditation, the company required a robust approach to information management. A fully integrated software system will allow the company to manage its growth effectively, whilst maintaining the highest quality control and customer service standards.
SBH will be able to use Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to combine business value with best practice, standards-based technology. SBH can utilise the industry experience that Oracle has in the home builder space to get the most out of the business solution as well as benefiting from a low total cost of ownership. For example, Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Homebuilder Management provides industry-specific functionality in a flexible framework for coordinating and communicating throughout the home-building cycle.
The JD Edwards Homebuilder Management clients played a major role in the design of the product, resulting in a system loaded with homebuilder-specific features that leverage the strengths of other JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications, including JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Project Management, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Supplier Relationship Management, and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Financial Management.
Likewise, Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM will complement Oracle’s JD Edwards implementation by providing the project execution and control capabilities needed to successfully deliver projects on time, within budget and with the intended quality and design.
SBH is working with the Oracle Gold Partner, MEAC Group, to implement both Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP and the Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM solutions.
“The Surat Basin region is about to become one of the boom economies in Australia. Given our physical location (Chinchilla – four hours west of Brisbane) we face some extreme challenges to make our growth targets in the next two years. We’ve made significant effort to recruit the best talent out of Sydney and Brisbane. We therefore recognised that as part of the business plan we needed to invest in technology to help us achieve our growth plan,” said Jason Van Hooft, Chief Operating Officer, Surat Basin Homes, “We feel the team made up of Oracle and MEAC were the most responsive to our needs. Not only did they make the effort and take the time to meet with us face to face but they also showed their understanding of our industry and were able to decipher the key pain points that were important for us to address.”
“We are delighted to be supporting Surat Basin Homes at such an exciting period of growth for the company,” said John Smith, General Manager, Applications Channels and Commercial in ANZ, Oracle. “Surat Basin Homes will be using Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM as the underlying infrastructure to support their business growth for many years to come. Backed by Oracle’s Applications Unlimited policy, our products continue to prove their mettle for business-critical tasks using various infrastructures for ease of integration and management.”
