USG Corp., a leading manufacturer and distributor of building materials for the construction and remodeling industry, has upgraded to the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 to help streamline and enhance its global business operations.

With 8,500 employees in 140 distribution locations and 75 production facilities across North America, South America and Asia, USG needed an automated, scalable and flexible management system to streamline and standardize core business processes across HR, finance and its global supply chain.

Completed on time and under budget, USG was able to increase efficiencies across its global operations by reducing system customizations in half and optimizing plant utilization via an upgrade to their Oracle E-Business Suite to release 12.1.

As a result of the upgrade, USG has been able to leverage Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 Human Capital Management (HCM) to streamline and centralize benefits and payroll in order to better respond to employee and staffing needs, while also ensuring compliance with country-specific regulations.

To further streamline administrative functions and help HR professionals become consultative partners, USG deployed Oracle Self-Service HR, which empowered employees to update and maintain their own information, including company benefits and experience. Additionally, USG implemented Oracle Taleo Recruiting Cloud Service to reduce their administrative workload and eliminate paperwork.

To manage uncertain and variable demand, USG also upgraded to Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 Supply Chain Management, including Oracle’s Demantra Demand Management and Oracle Inventory Management, to help it reduce inventory management complexity and improve forecast accuracy.

With Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 Financials, including Oracle General Ledger, and Oracle Payables, USG has been able to reduce accounting errors and support international and country-specific financial reporting mandates.
In the future, USG plans to further simplify financial and manufacturing processes by expanding its Oracle E-Business Suite deployment with Oracle Advance Pricing, Oracle Receivables, Deductions Settlement and Channel Rebates.

“We needed an automated and flexible business platform to increase efficiencies and establish a solid foundation for capitalizing on opportunities in the cyclical housing and commercial properties market,” said Joe Hus, Director, IT Applications, USG Corp. “By standardizing and automating HR, finance and supply chain operations on the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1, we have been able to significantly reduce complex system customizations, remove administrative redundancies, better forecast our inventory needs and production, and enhance our management capabilities.”
