27th April 2016: FLO GROUP RELEASE: Today Flo Group announced the expansion of their logistics Cloud offering built upon best-in-class Oracle Cloud applications.
Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud, it helps organisations drive innovation and transformation through increased business agility, lower costs and reduced IT complexity. The availability of Oracle Transportation (OTM) and Trade Management (GTM) presents a great opportunity for logistics service providers and shippers of all shapes and sizes.
Over the last 12 months, Flo Group has been working with global customers leading the way in Cloud based logistics applications. They have implemented solutions for some of the world’s most complex supply chains, and the European-based partner has unique experience in working with organisations to deliver logistics excellence.
In recognition of their continued success in Enterprise and Accelerated solutions, and their active investment in Oracle Cloud, Flo Group has been elevated to official OTM Cloud Partner in Europe.
As part of Cloud accreditation, Flo Group has created a number of industry specific templates and standard process flows that can be quickly implemented. In addition, they have been working in combination with Descartes to provide a pre-configured solution for compliance leveraging GTM. Both OTM and GTM can be introduced as extendible solutions using pre-configured building blocks.
Denis Senpere, Vice President Supply Chain for Oracle in Europe, quotes “Oracle is delighted to benefit from Flo Group’s proven Logistics expertise, now available in Europe for our OTM and GTM fast growing Cloud solutions. We are confident that Flo Group will further expand our market reach through their pre-configured solutions and their integration knowledge, with great customer satisfaction.”
Flo has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to transition clients to a single global logistics operating model that delivers significant return on investment, accompanied by long-term operational benefits and a future-proofed transport strategy.
Barry Hayes, Executive Director of Flo Group, quotes “OTM is truly an Enterprise ready solution provisioned in the Cloud. The ability to deploy OTM in the Cloud not only delivers bottom line cost savings but significant top line business benefits – something not too often considered or quantified in Cloud deployments.”
