Frimesa Cooperativa Central, a producer and distributor of meat and dairy products in Brazil, has upgraded to the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1. The modern, flexible and scalable platform has helped accelerate Frimesa’s financial processes and improve quality control in its manufacturing operations. This has enabled Frimesa to improve decision making and enhance financial, sales, logistics, production, planning and account processes.
To help improve the efficiency and accuracy of business processes that support its growing organization, Frimesa Cooperativa Central, a producer and distributor of meat and dairy products in Brazil, has upgraded to the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.
With five production plants, 14 distribution units and an average annual growth rate of 20 percent, Frimesa needed a modern, flexible and scalable platform that could accelerate financial processes and improve quality control in its manufacturing operations.
Completed on budget and in a third of the estimated time, Frimesa worked with Innovative Management Consulting, a Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), to implement the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 while minimizing any effect on end-user productivity or impacting the company’s critical processes, such as accounting and billing.
The intuitive, graphical interface delivered by the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 has helped increase usability and satisfaction levels among system users.
By enabling the company to monitor and consolidate company-wide production and logistical data, including from its meat and dairy lines, the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 is providing Frimesa with detailed and actionable insight into key business processes.
Timely and accurate data provided by the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 has enabled Frimesa to maintain its annual growth rate by improving decision making and enhancing financial, sales, logistics, production, planning and account processes.
Frimesa has also been able to reduce the time taken to complete monthly billings by up to four times with Oracle E-Business Suite Financials, including Oracle General Ledger, Oracle Payables, Oracle Receivables and Oracle Cash Management.
In addition, Frimesa has been able to improve standardization and efficiency across quality control and manufacturing processes by leveraging Oracle E-Business Suite Supply Chain Management, including Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning, Oracle Process Manufacturing and Oracle iProcurement.
“We are continuously reviewing key business processes to ensure they can support our growth and meet the strict food safety and public health requirements of our industry,” said Irajá Curts, chief information officer, Frimesa Cooperativa Central. “Our migration to the latest release of the Oracle E-Business Suite was flawless and with the new capabilities, we are very well positioned to maintain our current growth. In particular, it has enabled us to achieve significant efficiencies by accelerating key financial processes and optimizing quality control and manufacturing operations.”
