  • Faster Reporting and analysis: financial reports such as month-end reports and staff utilization reports used to take 2-3 hours preparation time. Users can now obtain the information in seconds, a dramatic real time reduction for better data analysis.

  • “In this fast paced environment, it is now more crucial than ever to provide our staff with reliable and innovative tools that offer the flexibility and security necessary. We want to further empower our employees- one of the key reasons we implemented Oracle Exalytics was so that employees can manage their own business needs and receive the information they need fast and efficiently anywhere in the world. Oracle Exalytics is a robust and stable platform that has enabled our employees to focus on what they do best and not worry about the back end system of financial reporting and planning,” said Benjamin Pearce, Director Financial Systems, WorleyParsons
  • “Using Oracle Exalytics has enabled WorleyParsons to extend their financial reporting and boost operational efficiencies, giving their employees the tools they need to be self sufficient.
